JD Technologies Global, LLC is an active member of the Health Industry Representatives Association (HIRA) which focuses on promoting the manufacturers’ rep (field sales company) function within the health care industry. Members of HIRA are independent sales agencies located across the nation who offer manufacturers a professional, highly qualified sales force. Additionally, allied members are manufacturers who support the continuing use of independent sales agencies to market their products.
HIRA, Health Industry Representatives Association, is an Association established for providing information, knowledge, and opportunities, to independent medical representatives that sell and service the healthcare community.

The primary goal of the Association is to assist and advance the objectives of both the representatives and the manufacturers.
Through a major emphasis on education, MANA aids in the development and promotion of mutually profitable relationships, ethical standards of behavior and interdependence among multi-line, outsourced sales companies like JD Technologies Global, LLC and marketing entrepreneurs, their principals and their joint customers.
Over the years, MANA has become known as the One Association For All Agents and Manufacturers. MANA has functioned as a horizontal organization for reps and their principals, offering membership to any firm that is willing to ascribe to our Code of Ethics. We feel that we’ve had a positive impact on the unique relationship that is the rep/principal method of going to market. While our sister associations also promote this business partnership approach to marketing, they have tended to do so on a targeted basis, expending their resources in a given industry or geographic market. MANA has, and will continue to focus on the broader picture of education, making its presence known at the state, national, and international levels. At the same time, MANA lends its support to these sister organizations and helps fund the Manufacturers’ Representative Educational Research Foundation (MRERF) in education regarding the profession.
Mission: MANA is the association of interdependent manufacturers and representatives dedicated to educating, protecting and promoting the multi-line, outsourced sales function.
