Here are PRODUCT SHOWCASES for our 6 "Everything DiSC" Profiles.

 

How many DiSC Profiles can I purchase at one time?

DiSC-Assessments can sell you any quantity of DiSC Profiles that you prefer by helping you set up your own EPIC Account (details below) and ensuring you are rewarded with the best Volume-Based Quantity Discounts available anywhere!

For example, if you are interested in buying 10 or more online Profiles (or any variation of online Profiles that total an equivalent of 250 or more EPIC Credits) for your team and/or organization, we will provide you 1 FREE EPIC Account (with your purchase of 250+ EPIC Credits) so that you can start off on the right foot, and gain all of the advantages to having your own EPIC Account listed below.

 

Why does DiSC-Assessments recommend a quantity limit of 9 of each online Profile to customers without an EPIC Account?

DiSC-Assessments offers immediate access to small, limited quantities (1 to 9) of selected online DiSC products for your benefit.  As a smart shopper, you want the best products for the best prices, with no regrets.  Purchasing larger quantities of online Profiles from an online seller without your own EPIC Account is simply not smart nor cost-effective for you.

For example, It makes no business sense to purchase 10 or more ED Management Profiles (25 EPIC Credits each, for a total equivalent of 250 EPIC Credits) for your organization's leaders without your own EPIC account, because all of your leaders' DiSC Profile results will be stored in the seller's EPIC Account database forever, and not in your organization's EPIC Account database.  You will immediately lose the ability to access your leaders' DiSC Profile results to run free and unlimited ED Supplements for Facilitators, Comparison Reports, and Team Views, and you will never be able to run value-added ED Group Culture and ED Facilitator Reports whenever team membership grows or changes.  Finally, you will likely pay much more, and receive much less than you would with your own EPIC Account.

Sadly, very few of our competitors will tell you this, because selling larger quantities of online DiSC products to you will greatly benefit these online sellers, but not you.  Our values, philosophies, and approach are quite different.  We never sell what we wouldn't buy.  This is one of many reasons why we've been successful as a trusted business partner for 35 years, and counting!

 

What is EPIC, and what are EPIC Accounts & EPIC Credits?

EPIC (Electronic Profile Information Center) is an online platform that provides a simple way for you and your organization to deliver the most advanced Everything DiSC Profiles, Reports, and learning assessments via the internet.

After you set up an EPIC Account through DiSC-Assessments, you will have access to all of our online profiles, including all Profiles listed here at DiSC-Assessments.  From your computer, you can administer access codes worldwide that allow people to complete any assessment available online.  Once a respondent finishes answering the questions, the resulting report goes to the respondent and/or to you.

EPIC Credits is the term to describe the "currency" used within the EPIC system.  Varying amounts of EPIC Credits (often 15, 25, and 50 credits per Profile/Report) are needed to issue "Instant Access Codes" for individual reports, and to generate Group Culture & Facilitator Reports.

EPIC Credits are purchased from DiSC-Assessments.  Many of our clients typically buy 1000, 2000, 2500, 5000, or 7500 EPIC Credits annually to use throughout the year, and to take advantage of our various Volume-Based Quantity Discounts.  From added features to an enhanced narrative style, online Profiles offer many more advantages that the “old school” paper instruments just can't match — this is what we call the EPIC Edge!

 

Do I need an EPIC Account to buy Profiles from DiSC-Assessments?

No.  You, your team, and your organization do not need your own EPIC Account & EPIC Credits to purchase small, limited quantities (1 to 9) of selected online Profiles.  DiSC-Assessments offers professionals an online solution for small, infrequent product orders:  Direct access to the world's best DiSC products available online, and for the world's best prices!

Are there any disadvantages for having my own EPIC Account?

Since the up-front cost of setting up your EPIC Account is FREE (with your purchase of 250+ EPIC Credits), all you have to do is learn how the EPIC system works, as you would with any other new online software program.  Simple as that.

Feedback from our clients confirms:  Learning how to use the EPIC system takes between 2-4 hours total training time, depending on your DiSC style!

We recommend that you learn the EPIC system at a comfortable, stress-free pace, 3-4 weeks before you distribute online assessments throughout your organization.  The EPIC menu bar and EPIC on-line screen help will guide you through this easy process.  Completely read and use “EPIC Help” & “EPIC Tutorials” (easy-to-follow videos).  Open and explore everything in this menu bar, one screen at a time.

 

When should I consider having my own EPIC Account?

You should seriously consider having your own EPIC Account (set up through DiSC-Assessments) when you want ANY ONE of the following:

  • To purchase a quantity of Profiles and/or Reports that are equivalent to 250 or more EPIC Credits.  Example:  10+ ED Management Profiles.  17 ED Workplace Profiles.

  • Access to many other Profiles & Reports (e.g., All those listed here at DiSC-Assessments!)

  • Access to highly-valued Team Reports (e.g., ED Group Culture and ED Facilitator Reports to run whenever team membership grows or changes)

  • Access to specialized Team Reports (e.g., ED Work Of Leaders Group Reports and Facilitator Reports)

  • Access to free and unlimited Follow-Up Reports (e.g., ED Supplements for Facilitators, Comparison Reports, & Team Views)

  • Access to the results from past Profiles to use in future Reports (e.g., Combine Profile results from 2 years ago with Profile results from 2 days ago, to run a new Team Report)

Please refer to the following chart for further guidance.

Please Note:  (A) The EPIC Credits Charged Per Profile/Report, (B) The Profiles/Reports available to you, & (C) The Languages available to you may change throughout the year per Wiley, our supplier.  Your EPIC Account will always be current, whereas this chart below is revised infrequently (last revised 01/01/18).

      Why do you recommend the Everything DiSC Profiles instead of the DiSC Classic Profiles?

      We objectively share which DiSC products are best, and which are not, based on our 4 decades of real-world applications of DiSC.

      For example, we strongly recommend the newer "Everything DiSC" product lines that were introduced in 2007 as a major upgrade to the older "DiSC Classic" product lines.  Why?

      All Everything DiSC products are professionally designed to provide focused, action-based results, and these products exclusively use adaptive testing technology for even higher validity and reliability than ever before.  We also think it's possible that the older DiSC Classic product lines may be phased out within the next decade, since similar dated DiSC Classic products are no longer available nor supported.

      We don’t want you to buy more than you need, anything that you'll regret, or anything less than you deserve.  To ensure that you are confident with your decision, please feel free to Contact Us with any questions you may have prior to your purchase.

       

      Why do you sell older DiSC Classic Profiles?

      Some people prefer to use the "old school" DiSC Classic 2.0 Profile, especially those who have used it within their organizations for decades, and don't want to revamp their training programs.  For the future, we strongly encourage them to consider an Upgrade From DiSC Classic To Everything DiSC Workplace and Management Profiles.  Although the DiSC Classic 2.0 Profile is currently available online in more languages than the Everything DiSC Profiles, the gap is narrowing, and quickly.  Please compare the 2 Profiles, side-by-side, so that you can see the differences.  You will clearly see that you get what you pay for.  The Everything DiSC Workplace and Management Profiles are superior in every way.
