USConnect now has over 40 affiliate members serving 100 U.S. metropolitan areas.
“The affiliate coverage area is vital for USConnect’s success; we want to provide a consistent, employee-focused, connected level of service for national accounts,” says Jeff Whitacre, CEO. “Our national account program is so effective because employers see significant value in making vending, food service, and micro markets an extension of their employee benefits.”
The USConnect family of affiliates provides employee services via a connected network of vending machines, food service, and micro markets as well as providing cashless convenience, loyalty, and promotional services via the proprietary USConnect OneCard. The USConnect OneCard also allows for instant refunds to its customers and detailed reporting to manufacturers.
Jeffrey Lee, General Manager of Kinney Vending, a company that recently signed with USConnect, states, “We are an independent, family-owned business guided by our family values for three generations. We are looking to compete in a market of giants who do not hold the same values. USConnect has given us the competitive advantage we need by allowing us to connect with other businesses that share the same values while still allowing us to maintain our independence.”
USConnect has been conducting regional sales and operational seminars to educate the affiliates on the plethora of services provided. Seminars are scheduled for Cincinnati, Chicago, New York, Atlanta, and San Diego. To find out more about these seminars, visit www.usconnect.biz.
USConnect plans to complete its affiliate network expansion by mid-2016.
