With Thanksgiving less than a week away, we are taking inventory and counting our blessings. The top of our list? You! To show our appreciation for your partnership, we are listing five of the reasons we are thankful plus giving you the chance to win a free Chipotle gift card!
1. We get to do what we do best, so you can do what you do best
The only thing better than getting to do something you’re passionate about as a profession is when it makes other people’s lives easier. We get to use our expertise in procurement, supply chain management, and collective purchasing to secure your company the best deals on things you’re already buying. In fact, most small or medium-sized companies can’t purchase products and services at the volume necessary to start seeing substantial cost savings. We pool thousands of companies’ resources and spend to get the benefits of billions in leverage from our top suppliers nationwide. This is collective buying power at its finest and that is what we get to do for you!
2. Because of you, we can offer discounts to many!
Each member matters at UNA. By taking your business needs and leveraging them with other companies’ purchasing orders, GPOs can negotiate agreements with their suppliers that cut the cost considerably! Every time you entrust your purchasing needs to UNA, we get paid a fee by the vendors. Our distributors and suppliers trust us with this committed volume and they want our business to reach our customers. We use that fee to finance our services, allowing us to make membership free for our members. Simply put – the more members UNA has, the greater the savings and service for all.
3. We get to help make your goals a reality
There is nothing more rewarding than the helping others reach their goals. Here at UNA, we don’t just save you money. We work with your company to ensure that it's running as smoothly and efficiently as possible by offering things like cost comparison analysis, data and analytics reporting, and a sound procurement partnership. Hearing our member’s testimonies of how cutting on their spend helped their business makes our work all the more worthwhile. It’s an honor to use our skills to see your goals met.
4. Partnership is mutual
Partnership is a two-way street. We partner with many companies across many industries and get to learn from their expertise. The benefits are not entirely one-sided! Learning about different industries and the passions of our members gives us a more holistic picture of the business world.
5. Supporting Exodus Cry
By partnering with UNA, you are helping Exodus Cry. We’ve chosen to partner with a nonprofit fighting against social injustice. This non-profit organization, Exodus Cry, is focused on eradicating human sex trafficking through prevention, intervention, and holistic restoration of trafficking victims. Our partners donate a portion of their profits to support Exodus Cry and their endeavors.
“Exodus Cry functions to bring an end to sex trafficking. They are a dedicated team of professionals who work full-time to prevent sex trafficking, intervene where it occurs, restore its victims, and create films exposing this crisis. Every single day, they are encouraged and inspired to keep fighting for the women and children held captive, because every person deserves to be free!” Exodus Cry takes a holistic approach to combating sex trafficking. They not only seek to prevent trafficking before it begins but also strives to intervene where it already exists and bring restoration to those who are rescued. They do this in the United States and around the world. Because of your business, we get the opportunity to partner with this incredible organization.
