What is group purchasing?


Group purchasing is a purchasing strategy designed to enable groups of independent buyers with similar needs to combine their purchasing power to get discounts and other benefits on the goods and services they buy. Group purchasing organizations, or GPOs, manage the group purchasing process and negotiate contracts with vendors on behalf of the buyers they represent. A group purchasing contract is simply the agreed upon pricing and other benefits available to GPO participants through a GPO-selected vendor.

Besides cost savings and the quality of their vendors, BuyQ saves us a tremendous amount of time, because we don’t have to do an RFP and they negotiate pricing on our behalf.
