No, we do not require quantity purchases. You can pay-as-you go and still enjoy the lowest pricing industry-wide.
NO FEES! There are no account setup or monthly fees of any kind. However, because these accounts include thousands of dollars in free multimedia DISC training materials, we do require a small initial assessment purchase to get started.
Yes, we offer our clients additional discounts at a range of volumes to fit any business size or need.
When it comes to customization, we cover it all. Many clients desire to brand deliverables and configure the assessment experience to their business and customers. This is not commonly available with our competitors and industry.

As an Assessment Coach and re-seller, other assessment providers limit who I can and can't sell to. Does A24x7 place similar limitations on my growth?
No, we don’t control how you do business with our tools. While other assessment providers may place a choke-hold on how their client coaches advertise and market themselves, we do not. Furthermore, we will facilitate your growth with free, customized marketing consultations and sales collateral to help you achieve your goals.

The ppaper-based version is an easily-administered 30-item assessment
which includes use of three interpersonal settings to maximize contextual
authenticity: work, home, social. Each of the three standard interpretive
graphs are plotted to enable a complete view of your preferred style,
and since the DISCStyles assessment can be completed in only 10-15
minutes, you gain valuable time for individual coaching sessions
or group discussions.
The online version uses the same 30 questions and also requires the user to select a "focus" (work, home, social) to ensure the end user is in the proper "frame of mind" while taking the assessment. Once the assessment is completed, the end user will submit answers, and a report will be generated immediately.
Our DISCStyles assessment has been crafted specifically to assist organizations in understanding how behaviors impact the success of their employees, and how it all links to the bottom line. Based on theories originally developed by Dr. William Marston in the late 1920's, and adapted for effortless facilitation and corporate buy-in, our DISCStyles assessment is a highly-validated tool, trusted by several Fortune 500 companies, the United States Military and professional consultants worldwide.
Our DISC reports are as much prescriptive as they are descriptive. In other words, our DISC reports are unique because they teach users specific skills to improve their own interpersonal interactions. While our reports do go into considerable detail in describing users' natural DISC behavioral style, we believe this is really just the first step. Our reports empower users with specific recommendations unique to their profile. When utilized, these skills have the ability to enact powerful and demonstrable returns.
In order for you to distribute a DISC online assessment, you will log into your Admin. (CAA) account and create a unique "assessment access link". This link can either be sent to an individual to complete one or more assessments, or a single link can be created for a group of individuals to complete one or more assessments. The parameters of the link(s) are set by you, (for ex: name, group, expiration date, ability for end users to view reports OR block end user access to reports, etc.). You can also set up the link so that you (the account admin.) or any individual(s) will automatically receive a copy of each end user's report as they finish them.
There are 30 questions to complete for the DISC online assessment (any version — Self, Sales, and Leadership). It should take about 15 minutes to complete. Remember, you do not want end users to spend too much time on any single question; end users should answer with their initial 'gut instinct'.
Why would an account admin want to block end user ability to view reports after completing their assessment?
There are several reasons why an account admin. may not want an end user to immediately view their reports. Typically, coaches do not want their clients to review the results before a debrief because the end user is usually not trained in DISC and does not have the education, background, or skills to appropriately analyze the results. In other words, the coach wants to be there with the end user to go over the information presented in the report and explain it in a meaningful way. Trainers may want to block the attendees from seeing their reports until the actual seminar or workshop where the trainer distributes the reports and goes over them with the group at the appropriate time during the seminar/workshop.
Our pricing is based on the volume of your purchase. We offer 4 levels: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. If you would like a copy of our discount pricing sheet, email us at "firstname.lastname@example.org" and we will be happy to email one to you. Please include in your email address, and whether you are an independent coach/trainer or an inside corporate coach/trainer.
Once you purchase your assessment(s) from within your admin account, the credits (one credit per assessment/report) will populate your account immediately. You can then log in and set up your assessment access link(s) to email out to your end user(s), inviting them to take one or more assessments. Basically, you handle everything — purchasing credits and setting up links — from inside your admin account, and then email the link to your end users from your own email account.
You cannot purchase any paper-based assessments from inside your admin account. However, you can go to http://www.alessandra.com/taproductsdetails.asp?productid=108 and purchase the paper-based DISC assessments directly there. They will ship out to you from either Akron, OH or Amherst, MA according to your instructions on the purchase page.
Typically, the account admin (you) will handle distributing the
assessment access link(s) to all participants. It is a quite simple
process — once you create the link you will copy/paste that link
into an email (sample template provided) and send that email out
to your end users. All end users in any designated group will receive
the SAME link from you, so you can send the link out in a single
email. If anonymity is an issue, simply “BCC” everyone.
That our superb Customer Care team would be happy to help distribute links if you provide us with an Excel document. Just call either Ashley at 206-400-6647 x2 (Pacific Time) or Suzette at 206-400-6647 x8 (Pacific Time) for the details.
As part of your account, we provide you with a wealth of DISC Trainer Material resources to help you interpret and debrief reports, including a DISC Report Debrief Guide. You can also call 206-400-2746 (Pacific Time) or email (email@example.com) at any time if you have specific questions. We will be happy to help you.

The letters D, I, S and C represent the four primary behavioral
styles presented in the DISC model. D represents Dominance, (firm
and forceful, confident and competitive, decisive and determined
risk-takers,) I represents Influence, (outgoing, optimistic, enthusiastic
people who like to be at the center of things,) S represents Steadiness,
(genial team players who like stability more than risk and who care
greatly about relationships with others) and C represents Conscientiousness,
(self-controlled and cautious, preferring analysis over emotion.)

style of behavior.
The DISC survey is designed to provide valuable information about an individual's favored natural and adapted communication preferences. Information in the DISC report should not and is not used as the sole basis for consideration of selection for employment, promotion, salary adjustment or job position. A candidate's credentials — education, hard skills, industry experience, work track record, job interview, etc.— are significant factors in the job hiring process.
