CEDAR RAPIDS, IA, Feb. 15, 2019 — NSCA, the leading not-for-profit association representing the commercial low-voltage electronic systems industry, is excited to announce new additions to its Business Accelerator and Member Advisory Council programs. The services offered by these providers are created exclusively for NSCA members to streamline business processes, establish marketing differentiators, build lead-generation pipelines, and gain access to capital.
New NSCA Business Accelerators available to members include:
- Deluxe, which offers integrators and manufacturers access to printing specialists and personalized printed products, such as business cards, envelopes, folders, letterhead, and business forms (work orders, invoices, etc.). Deluxe also offers promotional products and logo design, web services, and search engine marketing to help businesses get found online and stand out in a crowd.
- OfficePro, which offers online and in-person training services for technical personnel and administrators. Its unique, dynamic training methodology helps integrators educate employees on new technology, products, and services specific to unified communications, pro AV, telecommunications, and other technology. Their professional services can also augment staffing levels, allowing integrators to grow their IT, communications, and help desk personnel numbers when needed.
- PSAEducation.com, which provides integrators and manufacturers with the knowledge, skills, tools, and resources needed to help their businesses thrive and be successful. Training, professional development, and continuing education on a variety of industry topics are available through this portal. The service also provides access to PSAEducation.com’s Certification Tracker for managing licensing and compliance requirements. Users also gain access to their own LMS nested within the PSA website, where unique company training content can be hosted.
- TradeCycle, which utilizes trade finance techniques to provide simple, supply-side funding for integrators and manufacturers. The company offers unsecured lines of credit that are used to pay its clients’ vendors and extend payable terms. By delivering working capital where it matters most – in the supply chain – TradeCycle helps the industry expand production and grow revenue.
NSCA also added two resources to its Member Advisory Council program:
- Audira Labs, which offers executive and career coaching for leaders seeking change, development, and growth. By combining a personalized approach with a systematic methodology, Audira gives integrators and manufacturers the skills needed to lead effective teams and organizations. It also offers strategic planning services and framework to improve goal achievement, as well as team building, collaboration, and facilitation services.
