The start of a new year is a hopeful time. You put the past year to bed and launch new plans to improve yourself and your bottom line. But don’t forget all the hard work you did last year. Remember the extra effort your team put in too. Maybe now is the time to make some business improvements that will have a positive influence this year and beyond? After all, improving your bottom line can elevate your whole company and open new opportunities you didn’t even consider. Who knows, maybe next year’s holiday party will be a whole different kind of celebration!
The problem is most business improvement plans require some sort of investment, either time or money or (more likely) both. That’s usually where improvement plans come to a halt. However, there are solutions that require less effort, ways to cut business costs and even reward your team for their effort without investing in marketing or technology. You don’t have to shop for smaller offices on the edge of town or trim your payroll. You just have to discover what hundreds of thousands of small and medium-sized businesses already know.
Group purchasing organizations are a way for small businesses to access corporate discounts on products and services they already use. GPOs accumulate the buying power of thousands of small business members and then leverage that buying power to secure top-tier pricing, the kind of special discounts that are usually reserved for giant corporations. Joining a GPO lets small and medium-sized businesses save money with minimal effort or normally no cost. In fact, there’s often no membership fee and the right GPO will help you find the right offers for your specific business.
National Purchasing Partners (NPP) is a leading GPO that serves businesses of all sizes. Membership is free and there’s no obligation to purchase. Once a business enrolls, it can access discounts on a broad catalog of useful items, from office supplies to wireless service, technology to travel deals. NPP even offers employee discounts so business owners can share perks with their team. Discover how your business can benefit from discounts on brands like Staples, Verizon, Expedia, Airgas, Adobe, Sherwin-Williams, OfficeMax and more.
NPP has been helping businesses save money for 18 years, offering contract B2B pricing to members coast to coast. Our membership is now over 300,000. Because we are owned by non-profit hospitals, a large part of our proceeds support the research of autoimmune diseases. We encourage you to learn more about NPP’s cause.
While the end of the year is a time for giving, why not start the new year saving.
