Industry association members will enjoy even greater discounts and savings on key products and services through the expanded Member Advantage Discount Program of the newly consolidated Association of Marketing Service Providers (AMSP), National Association for Printing Leadership (NAPL), and National Association of Quick Printers (NAQP).
“Our affinity program has always provided members with real, tangible value, but that value has now been augmented by combining our associations’ individual affinity programs into a single offering that is available to all members of AMSP, NAPL, and NAQP,” says Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Dean D’Ambrosi, who heads up the new association’s member services area.
“Our members can now take advantage of even more ways to grow their businesses, save money, and manage costs,” adds D’Ambrosi, “and we are continuing to expand the program further by adding new offerings, so we encourage members to check back on a regular basis to ensure that they are aware of the latest opportunities and taking full benefit of them.”
More than two dozen vendors and service providers now participate in the association’s Member Advantage Discount Program, among them many of the industry’s best known equipment and consumables suppliers: Apple, Canon, Discount Labels, General Binding Corporation, Konica Minolta, Presstek, Ricoh, and Xerox.
In addition, members can save thousands on their energy bills through the NAPL Energy Program?which averages a 10%-30% reduction for most participants?and on shipping through the PartnerShip Program?which averages a 10%-31% savings on FedEx shipments and 70% on LTL (less than truckload) shipments with various carriers.
Other program areas offer discounts on workflow software from Printer’s Plan; website storefront capabilities and social media marketing from PrinterPresence and Grow Socially; business and personal insurance and retirement plans from BancorpSouth, Blueline, and Sentry Insurance; environmental services from Compliance Management International; hiring and human resources services from Caliper; and tax reduction strategies from PTAG.
Members can also take advantage of discounts on account collection services from AmerAssist; credit card services from World Payment Services; customer surveys from Survey Advantage; specialty product marketing services from ASI; data quality and mailing software from AccuZip; and workplace legal services from Jackson Lewis P.C.
“Discounts available through our Member Advantage Discount Program touch virtually every area of a printer’s, mailer’s, or marketing services provider’s business, no matter how big or small,” says D’Ambrosi. “Members who take advantage of these programs can not only recoup their association dues many times over, but see a substantial positive impact on their bottom line.”
