The long-term goal for the co-op index is to create a web-based application that will allow worker co-operatives to try out parts of the survey, connect with facilitators to explore the full implementation of the tool, and access a base line score for their industry.

A secondary plan is to create similar index tools for different cooperative sectors (consumer, housing, producers, and solidarity cooperatives) to help these co-ops identify the cooperative difference in the operation and management of their co-ops.
