supplier listing

provides an entry in the suppliers database of the ait website. publicly accessible by members and non members, this provides a concise directory of suppliers wishing to promote their goods or services to the top 50 accountancy firms. as many firms will not take unsolicited calls from suppliers, using this database provides them with access to a concise list of relevant suppliers. an entry in the supplier listing gives:

  • one page summary plus url link to the supplier’s own webpage where further information can be provided. we strongly recommend that the suppliers create a bespoke landing page for the url which gives direct links to the most relevant areas of their web site, and also contact information (email addresses, postal address, etc.). the summary can be updated four times during the year.
