The Retail Solutions Providers Association (RSPA) is happy to be celebrating 75 years of serving the channel!


In February 1948, a small group of cash register dealers met in New York to form the ICRDA (Independent Cash Register Dealers Association) and later merged with the SDA (Systems Dealer Association), creating a new association known as the RSPA today.

The organization was established as a point of sale trade association with membership comprised exclusively of cash register dealers and later POS system resellers. In 2006, the RSPA transitioned to an industry association to create more education and connection opportunities for members. Today, the association has grown to encompass 700+ VAR, software developer, vendor, and distributor members in the retail, restaurant, grocery, and cannabis verticals. Please join us in this yearlong celebration – celebrating the past 75 years and looking ahead for many more years to come. Please revisit this webpage as we will continue to add new memories, member stories, content, and more.

The RSPA is a trusted advisor that helps its members adapt for the future!
