I am pleased to announce that Corporate United has signed on as a sponsor of the Purchasing Certification Blog. For those of you who have not yet come to know Corporate United, Corporate United is a leading group purchasing organization whose mission is “applying the value of collaboration to all aspects of spend management.”
One of the exciting recent developments coming out of Corporate United is the launch of their new Web site. I usually don’t get too excited about Web site redesigns. But Corporate United did much more than slap the proverbial new coat of paint on their site.
The redesigned Web site offers several new features. One of the new features (that is accessible by non-members) is the Knowledge Center, which includes the following and much more:
- Functional Alignment Center – procurement information specific to departments such as human resources, IT, facilities, operations, etc.
- Blog Center – a one-stop-shop for the latest content from leading purchasing blogs like Spend Matters, Supply Excellence, Procurement Insights, and, of course, the Purchasing Certification Blog.
- Spend Management Materials – timely news and trends written by industry experts
- Indices – various indices that are relevant to procurement professionals
The new Web site also features a section exclusively for Corporate United members who have access to an online forum that allows them to connect with other members to discuss industry news, trends, best practices, questions, job postings, etc. Members also have access to the member directory and Corporate United’s sourcing plans. Corporate United members can also use the Web site to interact with Corporate United and influence future plans for the GPO.
All in all, an impressive step forward for Corporate United. To see the website and its Knowledge Center, please visit http://www.corporateunited.com/.
In the coming weeks, I’ll be giving a preview of Corporate United’s upcoming Synergy conference, so stay tuned.
