Offer Your Employees Credit Union Benefit
ASA Federal Credit Union (www.asafcu.org) - Want to attract quality employees to your shop? Offer them benefits they can't refuse and one that doesn't cost you a dime. ASA's Federal Credit Union is available to ASA member shops and their employees. Through enrollment in the credit union, shops can enjoy a multitude of benefits, including direct deposit, loans, IRAs, ATM cards, checking and savings accounts, and more.
Affordable Ways to Education
AMI (www.AMIonline.org) - Discover what more than 1,000 industry professionals have realized - the benefits of being an accredited automotive manager (AAM). The Automotive Management Institute (AMI) (www.AMIonline.org) is a great resource for automotive service professionals who want to be better managers and leaders. You can have access to more than 800 accredited courses offered. Topics include financial management, marketing and sales, operations and service, management and administration and personnel and human resource development. If you want to learn ways to better manage your shop, look to AMI courses - taught by more than 200 faculty members - to give you the proper training and direction. In addition to classes taught by qualified instructors, AMI offers self-study courses to fit your pace and lifestyle.
Do an Energy Overhaul
APPI (www.appienergy.com) - See if you can lower your operating costs and increase your bottom line by having Affiliated Power Purchasers International (APPI) provide a free utility audit service for your shop (available in all states). ASA members pay no up-front fee for APPI's consulting service that identifies and corrects billing errors, incorrect fees and overpayments on electricity and natural gas, waste removal, credit card processing, telecommunications, water and freight. In addition, the Energy Buyers Program presents members in states that have deregulated their electric and natural gas industries (Mass., Md., N.Y. and Texas), an opportunity to reduce their utility costs.
All of these great benefits can be found in the ASA Marketplace - the place to go for one-stop shopping of ASA's entire benefits portfolio. Access all member benefits via the ASA Marketplace at http://ASA.bizunite.com by entering your e-mail and password "asa."
