Chamber Announces Bottom Line Benefits


March 11, 2008

Special member savings and/or benefits on health insurance, office supplies, and telecommunications.

(GREER, SC) You spoke, and we listened! A major focus area this year for the Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce has been to provide more tangible value for membership investment.  The Greer Chamber proudly announces the Bottom Line Benefits Program.  John Kimbrell, President of the Greer Chamber of Commerce states that “the Chamber recognizes the difficult economic times that face many of our members, and we understand that we must provide even better direct value for membership investment if we want to help member companies remain successful.  This new initiative helps our members save money on their everyday business expenses.”

The Bottom Line Benefits program is an initiative designed to assist chamber members with resources, solutions and/or significant cost savings for their businesses that is unique to chamber members. To decide upon these new areas of service, a benefit survey was given to members.  The result was that seven out of ten Chamber members who responded were seeking a more affordable and better source for office supplies, telecommunications, and health insurance.   The Chamber conducted a comprehensive RFP process to member companies that provide the services or products identified by the members.  Through this effort the Greer Chamber has selected the following preferred provider companies for the Bottom Line Benefits program: Office Depot, Deltacom, and Blue Cross Blue Shield.

BlueCross BlueShield - In response to our members’ input the Chamber offers a health insurance program that gives them member-only value and innovative alternatives.  The True Blue Partnership is a team effort between the Greater Greer Chamber of Commerce and BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina.  This is a program created exclusively for Chamber members with 2-99 employees. Businesses cannot receive these advantages through any other BlueCross BlueShield program.  Contact BlueCross BlueShield at 800-641-2977.

Office Depot – One of the largest office supply providers in the world, Office Depot is answering the call from our members and providing up to 60% off the already competitive pricing.  Existing customers can take advantage of the member savings as well.

Deltacom - Deltacom makes an “active” commitment to you which is why hundreds of local businesses have switched.  Greater Greer Chamber members will receive additional discounts off local, long distance, internet, data, and more. Members will receive a free analysis of their telecom services as well.

For additional information about this program or to receive a free quote please contact that Chamber at 864.877.3131.
