On February 12th and 13th four members of the DISC Board of Trustees traveled to Chicago to visit with our Insight Relationship Team at Insight’s distribution facility. We met with Insight representatives, toured the Insight fulfillment and distribution center, and met with eight technology manufacturers about possible new blanket pricing agreements with DISC. We learned about various Insight services that could be useful to Arch! Dioceses, and all eight manufactures are now open to further conversations about blanket pricing agreements for the U.S. and Canada. We also expect to see all eight manufactures displayed at the ’04 DISC conference at Colonial Williamsburg in June. Some have also committed to sponsor certain member events at this year’s conference.
This trip was a tremendous success in terms of improving and expanding our DISC relationship with Insight. We also have plans to have conversations with more high-visibility technology vendors working through Insight. We will keep the membership updated as we learn about new Insight services, and advance our products!pricing conversations with additional technology manufacturers.
