The Source

When a member of The Association needs help; when they need the best place to buy something; when they need an answer how to get something done; when they have a print question; when they want to find out about the newest programs; when they need a way to be more productive; when they want to find out where to get the best cost; they can get answers to these and other question from their fellow members. Since 2007 The Association has had the best, the original, discussion forum for providing a quick information and idea exchange for our members.

This information and exchange forum has been referred to as “The Communications Network”, “The Forums”, “eNetwork” and other references. The National TUPSSO Franchise Owners Association is pleased to announce our network will now be named “The Source”.

The name, “The Source”, clearly depicts what a member can expect for this information and exchange forum. “The Source” provides nearly a twenty to one ratio of information responses compared to other networks that copied and came much later.

“The Source”, News and Information, provides members with answers to operational, productivity, educational, support, and consistency questions. Some of the recent topics of focus were; the new Microsoft email system, Access Point, Gateway and Fortinet questions, Postal Insurance Exclusions, Elimination of DHL Waybills, scanning to Email, International PSO, Scan Plus Program to name a few.

“The Source”, Print Information Exchange, provides a separate discussion about the print side of our business. The Print Information and Exchange is dedicated to providing information that will help all members grow print by helping them cut their costs, increase their print sales and make more money through print. Some of the recent topics of focus were; printing on tabs, advertising binding strips on blueprints, 13 x 19 110# cardstock, plastic bag vendor, Hecon controllers, The UPS Store Business Station and Back Office Machine and more.

“The Source”, FZ Plus Information and Exchange, provides support information, marketing and training for third party print equipment purchased by our members.

“The Source”, New Programs and Updates, provides a separate information section detailing new information that has been added or updated on The Association’s website network. Members are advised of any changes or additions to existing programs, new programs, tools and forms, vendor information, board meeting minutes, and more.

“The Source”, is very fast. When you need information, you need it now, not we will get back to you in a couple hours, days, or weeks. Ask “The Source” and you will get an answer in minutes. And not the viewpoint of just one owner but a resource that consists of over twenty-five percent of the network. There are members that are dedicated to make sure you get the best information as quick as possible. Whether it is operations, productivity, cost cutting, sales building, print or just support and verification, there are members that have been in the situation and can provide real world answers. There is no better Source than your fellow members who share your interests and concerns.

Quite simply for, the best information source, the best way to reach out to other owners, the best way to communicate with others in the network, finding the lowest cost, the best way to increase your sales, support and not being alone with the challenges you face, you can become part of “The Source”. Add your strength to “The Source”, share your thoughts, your expertise.

When another owner asks you where you got your information, tell them from “The Source”. When they ask you how to, or where can I, share with them about joining The Association and check out “The Source”.
