Lower Your Phone Bill
What if your business could save nearly 30% off your phone bills without having to change service providers? Rick Crawford, managing partner of The RPIA Group, of which many of the nation’s largest retail bakeries are members, says the RPIA has a new deal for you. The group is adding a new service in which retail bakeries can sign up to have an independent consultant analyze their current phone service and determine specific ways to lower their bill. The consultant reads through each contract and identifies potential savings, Crawford says. The savings can show up as early as your next phone bill. “This is a tremendous new product,” Crawford says. “This consultant is saving an average of 28% off phone bills. He knows how to purchase wholesale rates.” Crawford says they are preparing to post a link on their website, www.rpiausa.org, where retail bakers can learn more. Since its founding in 2001, RPIA has become a virtual cooperative that empowers its members not only in purchasing power, The RPIA Group boasts more than 100 members, including its newest in Trinidad and Tobago, West Indies — Linda’s Bakery, its first international member.

but also in intellectual pursuits. By uniting retail bakers, RPIA has been able to capitalize on the concentrated buying power represented by its members. The RPIA Group offers much more than purchasing programs. Because members each have their own experience and expertise, RPIA shares intellectual property, as well. Before investing too deeply in new approaches, members can share what works and what doesn’t. RPIA members have found and shared information on better rates for workmen’s comp insurance, as well as property and casualty insurance. Members can take advantage of Predictive Index, a pre-employment test that evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of potential employees to make sure they’ll be productive and happy in their positions, reducing turnover and stress. And a national trucking program helps members to reduce shipping costs.
