Powervar, RSPA Celebrate 25 Years Together

WAUKEGAN, IL & CHARLOTTE, NC – Powervar is celebrating 25 years as a Retail Solutions Providers Association (RSPA) member and their 35th anniversary as a company in 2021. “It’s hard to believe it’s almost 25 years since Powervar was welcomed into the RSPA community,” said Powervar National Account Manager Mike Corda. “The partnerships we formed were invaluable to Powervar as an up-and-comer in the POS market. But RSPA has been about more than connections. It has been about people and contributing to a shared purpose.”

The mission of the RSPA is to accelerate the success of its members in the point-of-sale ecosystem by providing knowledge and connections. Powervar believed in the mission and joined the RSPA community in 1997 to connect with the point of sale and retail technology community.

“The sentiment shared by the Powervar team encourages and inspires our team and our board,” said RSPA President and CEO John Kirk. “Powervar also reminds all members of our community that there is power and impact in every single interaction. It is up to us. We are thankful for our relationship with Powervar that has been built by many over 25 years. We congratulate the team at Powervar for their 35 years of leadership and the exciting future they are poised to embrace. On behalf of our RSPA HQ Team, Thank You!”

Many companies, such as Powervar, have been members for decades because RSPA members have access to industry individuals, groups, and resources to accelerate their business success and increase ROI. With a vision to be the retail technology industry’s indispensable resource, the RSPA offers education and collaboration opportunities year-round for all members.

If you’re looking to grow in the retail IT channel, you need to join the RSPA, engage with the industry leading community members, and take advantage of industry-specific education – just as Powervar has over the past 25 years.

“Our long history with RSPA underlies the success we enjoy today,” said Powervar Director Global Sales & Service Chris Walsh. “The relationships we’ve formed, many stretching back to year one with RSPA, are at the very foundation of that success. If, as the saying goes, history repeats itself, we are in for a very bright future.”
