The IPIA and Imprint-MIS have announced the launch of the Association Accreditation Scheme; the purpose of which is to identify and verify the good business practice of IPIA members, making membership distinctive and more relevant.
‘Imprint-MIS has been a member of the IPIA for many years and we are very proud to be sponsoring this scheme. The IPIA connects trade print buyers and suppliers within the association and out into the wider market. The Accreditation Scheme will be rolled out in 2018 and be mandatory by January 2019 and will apply to members in all three categories. This is just one of many ways you companies can benefit from joining the IPIA,’ said Wayne Beckett, sales and marketing director at Imprint-MIS.
For the manufacturing members, the IPIA will promote the accreditation so that companies looking to outsource know that they will be dealing with exceptional trade service providers.
For professional resellers of print the accreditation will be a useful addition to their sales process, giving them a unique advantage as they grow their businesses in an increasingly competitive market.
IPIA print managers will be able to assure clients that they belong to a professional body, have achieved their accreditation, and importantly, are supported by suppliers who are also part of the scheme; demonstrating excellence throughout the entire supply chain.
Associates will also be part of the scheme with the accreditation mark acknowledging that their service and products are best in class.
