UNA began as a one-person operation in a small apartment in Kansas City Missouri. It was 2012, and Anthony Clervi was trying to solve a problem. He realized that too often, small to medium-sized organizations could not get the resources they needed to grow. Businesses spent too much time fighting for savings and discounted contracts. Associations continually required new benefits to attract and retain members. The trouble was, accessing great agreements and programs required a lot of purchasing power, the kind of leverage only Fortune 500 companies had.
Anthony decided to found UNA, a group purchasing organization (GPO) to fill the gap and help organizations increase their bottom line. He wanted to create a GPO that would help customers solve their most pressing problems, and that would bring group purchasing into the 21st century.
Today, UNA has over $100 billion in buying power, 197% average year-over-year company growth, and a 97% customer retention rate.
