Group Purchasing Solutions prides itself in our unique approach to supporting the needs of our select business sectors. Over a dozen years of experience have taught us that our success stems from our Supplier Partner trust in us to truly support their growth. This trust leads to higher pricing discount and specialized service terms usually reserved for huge enterprise customers.
When GPS selects a category, we go directly to one of the market “A” players to understand where we can support their corporate objectives. The relationships we establish create the foundation for comprehensive, direct pricing agreements that members can participate in knowing their needs are being fully addressed. Yearly category RFP’s become a thing of the past.
