STEP 1 | STEP 2 | STEP 3

Step 1: Basic Decorator Membership Benefits

The ASI Number

The ASI number is the only true, consistent industry identifier, recognized by all distributors and suppliers alike for more than 50 years. The ASI number brings to the table exclusive benefits that other industry organizations do not provide. With your ASI number, in addition to your access to a wealth of products and services, you gain:

  1. Credibility – the ASI number is the most respected and reputable industry identifier. All members need to provide solid evidence of their participation in the industry, and that evidence also works as proof positive of their desire to maintain the supplier/distributor/end-buyer sales channel.
  1. Recognition – the ASI number provides instant recognition to network professionals. You may receive earlier credit terms and discounts. ASI suppliers are subject to regular ratings and reporting, so you always know who you are dealing with.
  1. Exclusivity – Not everyone that applies for an ASI number qualifies – not even if they pay more. The criteria applied to ASI membership makes the ASI number something to aspire to and be proud of.

Many members use ASI numbers to manage their day to day business. Some common uses are:

  • Vendor identification
  • Customer numbers
  • Catalog classification
  • Credit references
  • Supplier ratings
  • Networking events invitation criteria
  • Special pricing or discount status
  • Preferred provider status
