ASHI Announces New Discount Programs

ANTHONY SNYDER

Handheld electronic devices added to Society's list of member benefits

Blackberry.gifIn December, ASHI completed a membership survey that encouraged individuals to tell us what they wanted from their professional society. Among the top three items requested was a special member rate to purchase nationally known, handheld devices. We’re pleased to announce that ASHI inked a deal in early March that will provide the opportunity for our Membership to purchase BlackBerries®, What’s more in May, Treos and cellular phones and accessories will also be available through eAccess Solutions. This relationship means exclusive savings for the ASHI Membership.

We recognize that each home inspector has different needs and requirements, and eAccess Solutions has pledged to tailor each program to meet your time, budget and other needs. eAccess Solutions has already substantially discounted prices and is willing to knock off an additional 15 percent for ASHI Membership. This discounted price, when combined with outstanding customer service and extensive online training, is truly an offer that cannot be beat.

Just recently renewed your cell phone plan and want to upgrade to a new product in May? eAccess can help. eAccess is a dealer for all major U.S. carriers, allowing for seamless transition from your existing contract to a new one. Some restrictions apply.

To find out about the products available, visit the eAccess link through the ASHI Online Store at www.ashi.org or call 877-991-7190 for further details.
