“Hospitals across America spend millions of dollars on promotional products, often with little control of each department’s purchases,” said Tim Tatman, president and CEO of WorkflowOne.
Dayton, Ohio (PRWEB) May 20, 2013
WorkflowOne LLC announced today that it has been awarded a three-year group purchasing agreement with the Premier healthcare alliance to sell branded merchandise and related promotional programs to its members. Premier is one of the leading healthcare group purchasing organizations in the U.S.
Effective June 1, the new agreement allows Premier members, at their discretion, to take advantage of special pricing and terms pre-negotiated by Premier for products or category of products.
WorkflowOne, based in Dayton, Ohio, is a national leader in print management, distribution, billing services and promotional marketing. The company is currently an approved supplier of printed forms, envelopes, labels and commercial print to Premier members.
“Hospitals across America spend millions of dollars on promotional products, often with little control of each department’s purchases,” said Tim Tatman, president and CEO of WorkflowOne. “This fragmentation makes it hard for hospitals to ensure their brand identity is used correctly or measure the return on their investment. That’s where WorkflowOne can help.”
WorkflowOne typically saves hospitals thousands of dollars on promotional product purchases by streamlining their procurement and distribution with robust technology. The company also helps by consolidating orders across multiple departments and leveraging its national purchasing power to provide the level of discounted pricing typically associated with large orders even when hospitals order in smaller quantities.
By sourcing from hundreds of branded merchandise suppliers in the U.S. and overseas, WorkflowOne is well equipped to help Premier members celebrate healthcare observance days, such as Nurses Week, National Heart Month and Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The company is also known for pioneering innovative programs such as “embroidery on demand” for personalized hospital scrubs.
