Alexandria, Va. (Nov. 10, 2016) – Idealliance, the communications industry association representing all facets of the global omnichannel media value chain, is pleased to announce that BCC Software has joined its Idealliance Member Advantage Program and will now offer Idealliance members a 10% discount on new purchases of its mailing software products or data marketing services. In addition, BCC Software will invest back into each new software licensee by covering the cost of Idealliance MailPro® Fundamentals and Advanced Certification for members purchasing BCC Software licenses.
“We are happy to welcome BCC Software to our Member Advantage Program,” says David J. Steinhardt, Idealliance President and Chief Executive Officer. “BCC Software has long supported Idealliance’s working groups and collaborative initiatives with mail supply chain partners and the U.S. Postal Service. That partnership has now been strengthened with this innovative offer that not only provides members with discounts on BCC Software’s mailing products, but also makes available Idealliance’s industry-leading mail certification program, MailPro,® to those who license BCC software. This is definitely a win/win for our members.”
“To quote an old sales cliché, ‘an educated customer is the best customer,’” said BCC Software President Chris Lien. “Education is incredibly vital in the oft-changing world of direct communications. That’s why we invest heavily internally to give every member of our Customer Support team USPS® and industry certifications. We are excited to extend that investment out to new customers with this special offer.”
This unique opportunity from BCC Software includes a discount that is valid on any new software purchase or on BCC Software’s wide array of data marketing services. For members who take advantage of the savings on a software purchase, such as the flagship product, BCC Mail Manager, BCC Software will pay the certification costs for both the MailPro® Fundamentals and Advanced Certification Course for each new licensee.
