A group purchasing organization (GPO) is a well-known buzzword in the healthcare industry. Do you know that using one in your business could translate into thousands of dollars of savings on the supplies and resources you use every day? Even though buying into a GPO might not be something you’ve ever considered, here’s why you need to do some serious research:
GPOs aren’t just for healthcare organizations. In the 1980s and 1990s, the federal government and healthcare organizations formed GPOs to lower costs and create efficiencies in their purchasing systems. Hospitals and free-standing nursing homes were able to consolidate their purchasing power with other facilities to create contracts with medical suppliers and other vendors. Those same practices have spilled over into other organizations. Today, many other industries are teaming up to create GPOs that bring in valuable benefits.
When it comes down to it, GPOs are more than just cost savers, they are sanity savers. Often, businesses get stuck in a rut with their vendors and don’t go looking for the best deal because they don’t have time. GPOs free you of the responsibility of vendor relationships, and you get the best deals on office supplies, janitorial supplies, and even services such as car rentals, etc.
