Maximize Buying Power with Group Purchasing

ScholarBuys has a strong track record of maximizing the technology buying power of academic organizations. Such organizations include; Consortia, Cooperatives, large school districts, and decentralized University Systems. ScholarBuys negotiates special agreements with software publishers on a group’s behalf. These agreements allow the group’s members to obtain economies of scale that they could not obtain on their own. We then market and manage these agreements to the group’s member institutions, faculty and students.

Group purchasing methodology features:

  • Aggregate group’s members purchasing power to create economies of scale
  • Management of complicated licensing programs that cover multiple entities with a blanket agreement
  • Negotiate exclusive contracts providing discounts for institution or departmental purchases
  • Negotiate exclusive contracts providing discounts for students/staff purchases
  • Coordinate onsite and online events regarding new products or product updates
