Because of the uptick in demand for our GPO services, we now offer two options: a premium, boutique style, procurement solution, and our recently launched stand-alone self-administering GPO.

Group Purchasing Organization (GPO)

Are you looking to save your business money and time as you navigate the persistent inflation with rising cost pressures, labor shortages and supply chain issues?

On average, GPOs save businesses between 10-25 percent on annual purchasing resulting in almost immediate savings to your bottom line as you purchase the goods and services you need most at a discount.

Our GPO has an immense list of suppliers and contracts in the portfolio, and you can participate in the high-tiered savings that our overall book of business qualifies for. Best news is that there are no fees to join and you have the option to sign up directly with our GPO right now!

What is procurement in business?

One component of Procurement is the strategic analysis of operational spend. Done well, it can yield rapid savings of 22% on average to your bottom line, with enhanced services and efficiencies. Today, the procurement function within businesses is being elevated to a strategic component of value creation. This provides the opportunity of a competitive advantage for business owners. A good procurement solutions provider can become an extension of the organization’s existing procurement resources, helping you do more with less effort.

How do I get started with outsourcing procurement services?

The first step for any organization seeking to optimize its procurement efficiencies and savings is to speak with a procurement solutions provider. The conversation starts the process of discovering where your business may have inefficiencies around process and identify saving opportunities.

Improvements to the bottom line can come in hard savings based on a cost-to-cost comparison or soft savings in efficiencies, technology and reporting. Strategic procurement, however, goes beyond just saving money to creating innovative processes that improve a company’s operations and efficiencies and position it for long-term success.
