Why RSPA?

RSPA is North America's largest community of VARs, software developers, vendors, and distributors in the retail, restaurant, grocery, and cannabis verticals. We're a fit for any organization that's serious about growth in those markets.

  • VARs join for guidance from our General Counsel, our community, and the RSPA Academy.
  • ISVs join to develop strategic relationships with community members who can expand their reach.
  • Vendors and distributors join because simply because they need to be where growth-oriented VARs and ISVs congregate.

Many companies have been members for decades – and we frequently add startup tech companies – because we accelerate their growth and they see the massive ROI RSPA membership offers. If you're serious about growth in the retail IT channel, email Membership@GoRSPA.org to get started.
