Products: Bosch Releases 5.0 Software Update for ADS and ADS X Scan Tools
The Automotive Service Association (ASA) launched its expanded benefits portfolio, the “ASA Marketplace,” one year ago, and ASA says the site, which houses money-saving offers for automotive repair businesses, continues to offer members the largest benefits package in the association’s 60-year history.
In addition, the site hosts several new offers previously unavailable through ASA, such as special discounts through Grainger, Sprint, Constant Contact and OfficeMax. These expanded offers allow ASA members to take advantage of pre-negotiated services with selected vendors for increased savings, according to the association.
"When combined with ASA’s traditional benefit programs, the ASA Marketplace provides unmatched value to today’s repair professional,” said Ron Pyle, president and chief staff executive. “As important as the pre-negotiated savings is the convenience of having these product and service providers in one place.”
Members have immediate access to the ASA Marketplace through the links provided on the Member Benefits pages on both the public and Members Only sections of the ASA website.
Direct access is also available at ASA.bizunite.com. ASA members may access the site using their e-mail address and the password “asa.” A guest account can be accessed for prospective ASA members, allowing visitors to view the numerous discount programs available through ASA membership. Nonmembers may access the site using the username “guest” and the password “asa.”
The ASA Marketplace is continually updated and contains numerous categories for easy navigation, including insurance, wireless services, shipping, estimating and diagnostics, office supplies and finance. The site also includes access to Employee Perks, which offers discounts at more than 25,000 merchants in categories ranging from restaurants to theaters to apparel to electronics. This particular benefit can be shared with shop employees at the discretion of the shop owner or manager.
