SAGE and PPAI announced today the long-term extension of the Power Of Two strategic alliance, delivering one comprehensive association and business management solution to promotional products distributors. The renewal agreement extends the current program so distributors will continue to receive both a PPAI membership and a SAGE Total Access subscription included in their low membership price.

“We are pleased to continue this relationship with SAGE as our exclusive technology partner,” says Paul Bellantone, CAE, president and CEO of PPAI. “SAGE has provided our members with access to powerful product and supplier research along with many other benefits that continuously help them thrive in the marketplace.”

Through this collaboration, all new and renewing PPAI distributor members receive an annual SAGE Total Access subscription. SAGE Total Access provides distributors with access to SAGE Online, SAGE Web and SAGE Mobile, SAGE’s premier suite featuring product research, project management, SAGE Chat, presentations, CRM, order management, virtual sampling tools and more.

“The Power of Two alliance provides distributors the membership support they need to advance within the industry,” says David Natinsky, MAS, president of SAGE. “We are thrilled to renew our partnership with PPAI so that our customers have access to education and professional development, product safety initiatives, legislative and business-saving benefits, and other necessary tools they need to transform into industry leaders.”

The extension of this agreement will also allow the SAGE Mobile app to continue as the official trade-show planner for The PPAI Expo held in January in Las Vegas, Nevada, as well as for Expo East held in June in Atlantic City, New Jersey. SAGE Mobile empowers attendees to conquer the show floor by giving them the ability to view floor plans, create walk lists, review the show schedule, take notes, pictures, videos and more as they visit booths and makes their post-show follow-up seamless and efficient.
