The Matrix™ program has officially launched to our membership. You should be receiving a packet of materials in the mail soon that will outline the software, our ‘Buy Local’ campaign and some Frequently Asked Questions. In this packet you will see some examples of active LACC business members who have already taken advantage of our software to get their Local Return Number. There will also be a flyer from ingenium and Northeast Kingdom Online so that you can learn more about the local companies who have created this product and will be your technical support. If you are anxious to get your business's Local Return Number, you can go to www.localreturnmatrix.com to learn more and start the process!
