Executive Director’s Message
Time is running out for registering for the August 17 Regional Meeting in Pittsburgh. With 15 vendorsparticipating (including our newest vendor—see below!), and at least 30 dealers, there will be great opportunities to learn about new products and programs, money-saving ideas, and increase your networking with other dealers! The meeting is free for all IBPI members, so your only cost will be in getting to the Pittsburgh Airport Doubletree Hotel! Call us today for more information, or download registration forms and more information at our website: www.IBPI.net. We also sent each Principal/Owner a “Call for Volunteers” this week. This is your opportunity to nominate yourself or another IBPI member to serve on the IBPI Board of Directors. Remember, this organization is owned by members, and run by members. If you want to be instrumental in the direction that IBPI takes, get involved. Send us your nomination for the Board. If you miss the mailing, the information is also posted on our website.
Spotlight On Your Business
Parts Now! has joined our growing list of quality companies, and we are excited to bring you the world’s largest laser printer parts supplier. Effective immediately, all IBPI members can purchase printer parts from Parts Now! and take 10% from their end column price list! You will also be able to enjoy special FedEx shipping rates of 60% discounts for next-day delivery. Parts Now! will also provide IBPI members with a “samples program,” to introduce their vast line of products to you. Parts Now! will also be participating in the Pittsburgh Regional Meeting! With many dealers expanding their printer product and service offerings, Parts Now! fills a void that will provide IBPI members with a tremendous competitive edge. Parts Now! has an impressive track record of providing products (99% fill rate), along with tremendous support programs. Their technical support is free, fast, and available when you need it. They also provide customers with newsletters focusing on service and parts. Parts Now! training programs are also industry famous, and available in either a classroom setting, or on-line. They have a very comprehensive web site (www.partsnow.com), offering a “quick reference guide” for HP and Lexmark! Take a look at Parts Now! for all of your printer needs!
