CHAMPS and viperks Relaunch Contract and Offer Members More Savings



CHAMPS and viperks Relaunch Contract and Offer Members More SavingsCHAMPS restructured its custom contract with viperks to offer CHAMPS Group Purchasing members and their employees’ savings on high-end brands and consumer products such as electronics, sporting goods, houseware items and more.

viperks is committed to helping organizations show employee appreciation. The CHAMPS custom contract with viperks offers two plan options for members. There is no fee for the Basic Plan and the Pro Plan costs 90 cents per user, per month instead of $1 for non-CHAMPS members.

"CHAMPS and viperks have collaborated to restructure our contract for employee discounts. Under this newly developed pricing, CHAMPS’ members have the opportunity to select from two levels of viperks services: Basic or Pro," said Jan Elder, director of contracting services, CHAMPS Group Purchasing. "With viperks Basic, CHAMPS members can now offer their employees the benefits of viperks at no charge. viperks Pro is an enhanced program customized to each CHAMPS member as a fee for service. We feel these adjustments will create even greater opportunity for our membership to take advantage of viperks’ innovative employee discount program."

The viperks custom contract is available to CHAMPS’ 5,000-plus members nationwide. The goal is to engage employees and appeal to a broad audience with the breadth of products offered through the viperks employee discount marketplace.

"The entire viperks team is excited to bring new and lower pricing options to all CHAMPS members so their employees can take advantage of the discounts we offer on top tier consumer brand products," said Scott Moss, vice president, viperks. "That's especially relevant this time of year when employees are looking for ways to stretch their hard-earned dollars further for holiday shopping. For a member to be able to help their employees with this as a perk of employment is a perfect way to show appreciation and that they care. viperks is standing-by to help all members with questions and employee on-boarding. Simply go to getviperks.com/champs to get started."

CHAMPS and viperks agreed to extend the contract until Sept. 2017.
