Reviews & Testimonials From UNA Members

Our mission is to help organizations grow to help them reduce spend, and get the resourced they need. But you don’t really care what we say about UNA, the proof in the pudding is what our clients say about us. Here are their successes and testimonials, here’s why we have a 97% customer retention rate.

What Clients Say About UNA

UNA has given us a basic word when it comes to our purchasing —“Confidence.”  As a business owner, I am confident that when my employees purchase from US Foods, Staples, or through UNA’s shipping program, that they are doing so at the predetermined discounted price points. UNA is looking out for me in the marketplace, and we are very happy with our relationship.

Owner of a Large Food Service Management & Catering Business

“We’ve been using UNA’s shipping program since April 2015. Getting started was easy. When we signed up, we had about $140,000 a year in shipping spend, and I know UNA has reduced that by at least $25,000. The shipping program was a no-brainer for us.

“UNA’s hotel program has also been extremely helpful; we use it across all of our key verticals. Their discounts are better than traditional travel management companies, and we love being able to pre-pay rooms, so staff don’t have to submit expense reports.”

UNA is a valued business partner. Because of UNA’s purchasing power, we’re able to offer our seventeen non-profit member colleges and universities the best pricing on many goods and services, thus saving valuable procurement time and dollars.

Mike Backer, President
Missouri Colleges Fund, Inc.

UNA has been a great partner and resource for our operations teams. As we have implemented the UNA food program, their team has both consolidated our order guide and provided us significant savings opportunities. The transition has been well coordinated, pricing is completely transparent, and the service has been excellent. We appreciate all your support and look forward to continuing this successful partnership.

“We’ve been using UNA’s shipping program for about two and a half years now, offering it to six different associations. Travel association members use it to overnight hard copy tickets to their customers. The program helps them go above and beyond for their clients without breaking the bank. We’ve gotten great feedback from everyone. UNA’s customer support is just terrific, and they always go to bat for us.”

Mary H, CEO
Association benefit provider

We reached out to UNA to assist us in getting access to contracts that we couldn’t get on our own. And what we found was that they could provide us with even more than we ever anticipated. Our membership is also enjoying the added cost-saving benefits. With the personal service, they have delivered it truly feels like a partnership.

We’ve been using the shipping program about a year; we love it. Before we went through the post office, but this is much easier. The pickups are great, and we’re saving 30-40% on our shipping spend. We use it for everything, transferring borrowed units, ordering equipment, overnighting paperwork. We really enjoy and appreciate this program.”

Hands down this hotel program beats the prices of other lodging booking tools, it’s even cheaper than conference-discounted-room-blocks, and the ease of use is great. The prepay option has also been a huge help, both professionally and personally. My nephew needed emergency surgery, and I was able to quickly find and pay for rooms for my brother and his family — allowing me to help in a time of crisis. Sometimes my squad needs last-minute rooms, which can be a problem because a lot of places won’t take an agency credit card over the phone, but with this, I can easily reserve and prepay on the app.”

“We’ve worked with UNA for almost two years. During that time they’ve serviced our locations in 8 states, and we have been pleased with the overall products & savings that we have experienced. We’re glad to be a UNA member.”

“We love the discounted office supplies!

The UNA folks have been fantastic to work with! They understand the challenges our members face and share our values as an organization. I continue to hear how much money participating organizations are saving with UNA and urge everyone to give them a try. After all, why spend more than you have to in these difficult times?

“We’ve been working with UNA since April 2014, using UNA’s US Foods program. It’s consolidated our order guide and assisted with food selection and savings opportunities. They make ordering easy with their user-friendly online ordering system, and our US Foods Account Manager has met with us in person to go over products and make sure we have the best possible experience. We appreciate all the support US Foods and UNA have provided us with, and we look forward to continuing this successful partnership.
