When creating a strategy for managing your company’s spend, procurement and sourcing decisions largely hinge on four factors:
At UNA Purchasing Solutions, we combine all four of these factors to secure the best prices for your company’s purchasing needs.
By leveraging the collective buying power of thousands of companies with our extensive network of suppliers, we are able to save you more than just money! We can save the time you normally spent managing your company’s sourcing and procurement!
The way businesses approach procurement is changing. Every day new processes, strategies, and tools are surfacing to handle your company’s purchasing needs.
Luckily with UNA as your partner, your business will always be on the cutting edge of the newest and best procurement processes.
Working with the experts at CoVest Sourcing Network, we recently launched a worldwide benchmarking project to learn how procurement teams are using group purchasing organizations, or GPOs, to source indirect goods and services in order to add value to their companies.
We know that traditional methods of sourcing indirect spend categories are no longer working for many companies. We also know that you, as a procurement professional, have an expectation to achieve maximum cost-savings for your internal stakeholders as well as overall corporate goals. That’s a lot of pressure!
How are you managing?
Through our benchmarking efforts, we are seeing that more and more procurement teams in all industries are joining GPOs to add value to their companies by managing their indirect spend with success. You can read some of UNA's client group purchasing testimonies to hear how joining a GPO has helped their company.
By joining a GPO, studies show that you are saving around 200-300 man hours (if an RFP is required) by streamlining your sourcing and procurement strategy. That is not even counting the cost saved by allowing a GPO to manage your contracts, negotiate lower price points and help your company create executable strategies!
If you are looking for a more effective way to manage your company’s sourcing and procurement that will save you money and time, becoming a member of a group purchasing organization might be the move for you.
At UNA Purchasing Solutions, becoming a member is free and participation is voluntary. Let us partner with your company to ensure the most efficient supply chain management and greatest cost savings possible!
