Alliant’s E-Commerce Buying Solution

Louisville, KY

Alliant Purchasing, backed by $82 Billion in purchasing power, has launched a new Business and Industry focused e-commerce solution, ap+ap+ combines the convenience and efficiency of a completely online buying experience with the competitive pricing of a national group purchasing organization (GPO).  Using a proprietary exchange platform, Alliant has been able to remove the multistep and regulated buying requirements of a GPO for the ap+ experience.

ap+ members can view Alliant Purchasing GPO contracted products on the ap+ website, select and place those products in a common “shopping cart,” and then make the final purchase via their account.  The technology that powers ap+ places purchasing and reporting in the customer’s hands. ap+ members in Professional Service Firms, Construction, Hospitality, Casinos, Hotels, Schools, Transportation, and Recreation, amongst other Business and Industry verticals, can enjoy the simplicity of a one-stop buying experience while securing market-best pricing.

“When Alliant launched ap+ in 2022, we wondered how our contract pricing would translate from healthcare to the business world,” said Mark Slone, President, Alliant Purchasing.  “One of our first clients was a large integrated business with nearly 20,000 employees and over 400 locations around the country.  When ap+ saved this company 20% on supplies and services without changing products or vendors, we knew our value would translate to virtually every company in every business sector.”
