What We Do

UNA leverages billions in group buying power to help organizations get the resources they need and the pricing they deserve. We negotiate, so you don’t have to, that’s why we’re the nation’s fastest-growing group purchasing organization (GPO).

If your business is looking for greater procurement efficiencies, UNA can help save you time and decrease spend by providing pre-negotiated, competitive supplier contracts. We save businesses an average of 22% on their indirect spend. Learn more.

At UNA, our mission is to create value for our customers by providing access to critical resources they wouldn’t be able to obtain on their own. In our local communities, we strive to create positive change by empowering disadvantaged youth in the same way.

UNA About Our Story
Our Story

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.
