See what other SIPA members say about working with us:


  "PSA has been a great partner for us at IOFM, working closely with customer service, billing, outbound calling efforts and new member acquisition mailers. The team has taken the time to understand our business, our pain-points, and has developed a plan that meets our needs. The result has been a better-than-expected ROI and a mutual desire to do more business together."
Brian Cuthbert, Executive Director
IOFM

"Salem Eagle moved subscription management and customer service for its Eagle Financial Publications brands to PSA in 2013. We didn't take the decision to outsource these services lightly, knowing how critical customer touch-points are to our business. After a comprehensive bidding and due diligence process, we decided to partner with PSA. We have been very pleased with the decision ever since! The on-boarding was well-planned and orchestrated. Our account team makes sure that we know what's happening with our customers. As a publicly traded company, the fact that PSA is both PCI Compliant and passes a rigorous SOC Audit each year is very reassuring to our accounting department and Corporate Finance Team. Lastly, PSA's entire management team has a solutions-driven attitude - leveraging their experience to offer revenue-producing and cost-saving ideas to our publishing programs!"
Jim Zerr, Director of Operations
Salem Eagle | Eagle Financial Publications


"We recently completed our transition to PSA for subscription and customer management, and we have already seen a tremendous positive impact on our business. We're now able to do things that we were never able to do before - like automate the daily updates of over 80 email lists, seamlessly integrate our website and order entry process, and generate detailed marketing reports in real time. PSA has enabled us to operate better, faster, and smarter! Additionally, we have yet to run into a question or challenge that they couldn't help us solve. Their answer to every question is an enthusiastic, "yes!" and then they figure out a way to make it happen. Everyone on the team at PSA truly cares and wants to do the right thing for our customers and our business; they are a true partner and business builder. My only regret with transitioning to PSA is that we didn't do it sooner!"
Stephanie Williford, CEO
EB Medicine


"Greenbranch Publishing specializes in medical practice management and we traditionally had closely guarded control of our data and our customers. We think of each and every one of our subscribers as a friend. At first, moving our customer service and fulfillment services to an outside firm was an uncomfortable notion. But we knew if we were banking on continued growth we needed to make that move. We had working experience with Debra Schulle and Andrew Conti that gave us the confidence to take that big step. The collective experience and understanding of the team has matched our high expectations and they care about our customers the same way we do! PSA is there to take the small-to-medium sized publisher to the next level."
Nancy Collins, President & Founder
Greenbranch Publishing


"In 2005 we moved our customer service and fulfillment operations from in-house to PSA. It was one of the best business decisions we've ever made. We no longer have to worry about who is out sick, who is on vacation and who is answering the phones! We no longer have to worry that detailed instructions we set up for complicated data entry and fulfillment packages will be forgotten a month later. We no longer have to worry that we'll have too many orders for a product at once and unable to fulfill them in a timely manner. No matter what we throw at them, PSA handles it with ease. PSA personnel, from customer reps to managers, are wonderful to work with. They are dedicated, professional, organized and irrepressibly cheery. I'm always delighted to work with them. And, even better, I hear praise from my customers on a regular basis for our great customer service. PSA keeps all our customers happy, our products shipping out and leaves me with a lot more time to focus on the rest of our business!"
Donna Lawton, Vice President
Atlantic Information Services, Inc.
