Member-based procurement organizations have long serviced non-profit sectors such as K-12, Higher Education, City, County, State, Healthcare, and other segments. These procurement vehicles have helped non-profits leverage the purchasing power of public agencies in all 50 states with negotiated pricing for various needs such as technology solutions. In many cases when used, the procurement vehicles eliminate the need for buyers to be subjected to a long drawn out bidding process with multiple service providers.
In instances where organizations are under pressure to upgrade technologies such as telephony systems, data networks, contact center or mobility solutions, Altura Communication Solutions participates and helps customers understand how procurement vehicles may be a resource in time sensitive situations when price is an important driver.
Altura has found a procurement vehicle that is also available to help for-profit organizations called The Equalis Group. According to Derek Anderson, AVP with Equalis Group: “We understand that the need for competitively bid contracts exists across business segments, for-profits and not-for-profits. We are excited to offer the value of our competitively bid public sector contracts to our private sector, for-profit members.”
Altura will assist for-profit companies and non-profit agencies with attaining Equalis Group membership which can be completed online at no cost. Anderson added “The only requirement to gain access to our portfolio of contracts is the completion of our interlocal agreement. This quick and easy process can be completed online. This interlocal agreement simply provides access, there is no obligation to purchase and access is free of charge.”
