Answers about GPO's, Entegra and our difference

Frequently asked questions

Learn what it means to partner with a group purchasing organization, and how Entegra can support your business’s success.

What is a GPO and how can it help my business? 

GPO stands for group purchasing organization. When you partner with a GPO, you join other buyers in leveraging your collective purchasing power  in Entegra’s case, totaling over $24 billion.

That purchasing power enables your business to access better prices and a broader selection of high-quality items, services and support compared to making those purchases on your own. 

 


Are there any costs or requirements for working with Entegra?

We support clients of all sizes and industries – in most cases, with no fees. In other words, you don’t need to pay us to purchase with any of our contracted suppliers.

Once you do decide to partner with our experts, getting started is a simple three-step process.

 


How does Entegra profit from contracts? 

Our suppliers and distributors pay us in the form of rebates. Entegra’s $24 billion in purchasing power means more sales volume for our suppliers, and greater savings and selection for your business – a true win-win scenario.

 


Will I have to change my distributor(s), or the products I buy? 

Entegra works with multiple distribution partners and over 1,500 national, regional and local suppliers, providing access to the selections you trust. And if you can’t find what you need, we offer flexible custom contracting.

 


Am I locked into minimum purchasing requirements? 

You are free to purchase as much or as little as you like through Entegra. The closer you work with our experts, the better we can support you in achieving your business goals. 

 


What does Entegra offer that other GPOs don't? 

We put your business’s performance first. That means in addition to helping you save and improve margins, our experts deliver a range of efficiency-enhancing services and digital tools — all backed by the global purchasing power and culinary expertise of Sodexo. 

In short, we never profit off any relationship until you see value first. Click here to learn more about the Entegra Difference.  

 


Is it true that working with a GPO can be risky or restrictive?  

While we can’t speak for other GPOs, we strive to make our partnerships as trustworthy and transparent as possible. 

Entegra provides dependable client services and maximum flexibility. In fact, most of our clients decide to keep their existing distributors and ordering processes.
