PIA Essential Business Solutions


Problem: Profit margins continue to be slim. Most printing firms are not of a sufficient size to access the purchasing power normally available to just large companies.

Solution: PIA Essential Business Services allow members to pool buying power and purchase goods and services like companies many times their size. Members enjoy deep discounts on products and services necessary to doing business. Members often save far more than the cost of dues.

Solutions for Managers Who Want to Maximize Buying Power:
(Owners, Senior Managers, CFO’s, Buyers, HR Managers)
