When you have a tough question,
Chances are, you run across tough business questions almost every
day. Policy decisions you've never encountered before, data you
need for forecasts, essential benchmarking numbers, new technology
opportunities, organizational turnarounds, unexpected customer
demands... The whole services and support world is going through a
time of rapid change, and no one knows all the answers any
it's good to have
friends who can help.
Where do you turn for help?
If you're an ASP member, the answer is easy. We're a small,
organization with very deep resources for support professionals. A
few clicks will give you access to a whole library of research
reports, which will tell you how hundreds of peer-level companies
have solved the problems you've encountered. We have archives of
articles and forum comments, links to independent experts, and
contact lists to help you find other professionals for a quick cup
of coffee or an extended e-mail dialog.
In short, the ASP is a community of professionals. And you're
invited to join.
We're sincere about acting like a community. You'll find there's no
corporate bureaucracy to navigate, no "account manager" who'll try
to turn your simple question into a massive consulting project.
Your $95 membership fee gets you pretty much the whole
deal—research, member services, discounts, a monthly
newsletter, and an instant network of more than 1,200 members in
hundreds of support and services organizations.
And if there's something you want that we haven't gotten around to
providing, just let us know. We listen—and usually act quickly.
For more than ten years, the ASP's services have continued to evolve
