The ABPA is pleased to introduce a new program to help our members save money on their operational costs. ABPA has partnered with savings4members to offer discounted programs as a benefit of your ABPA membership. Through the savings4members program ABPA members will now have access to over 20 national vendors with substantial discounts.
savings4members has established partnerships with national vendors to help you save time and money on the products and services you use every day, including: operations supplies, credit card processing, wireless services, payroll processing, office supplies, fuel and more. Each vendor is carefully selected for value, savings, and the level of customer service they provide.
Here is how it works. savings4members represents over 1,000,000 independent businesses with a combined buying power of $300 billion. They leverage this buying power, on behalf of their clients, to negotiate national vendor contracts with discounted pricing. Typical savings ranges from 10% to 20% over the pricing that most independent businesses can obtain on their own, with the average member business saving $14,685 per year on their bottom line.
Some of the vendors and product categories are:
- WEX – Fuel cards
- ADP – Payroll Processing
- Ignite Payments | First Data – credit card processing
- UniFirst – Uniforms and Facility Services
- Office Depot & Staples – Office Supplies
ABPA members will have access to a team of Savings Consultants, who will help determine which offerings best fit your business needs and assist in enrollment. They will then arm you with the tools to drive down business costs and increase profitability.
In order to make sure you receive the ABPA discounts, you must work through this team of Savings Consultants by calling 844-346-3746 or emailing them at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you are enrolled, your savings will be tracked and reported back to ABPA.
We believe this program is a “no brainer” for ABPA to offer its members. The program is optional, simple to get started, and saves our members money. In our last two newsletters, I have spoken about the need for the ABPA to be more valuable to our members. This is a first step toward that goal.
