By harnessing Conductiv’s AI-powered data and category expertise, Yankee Alliance advisors can guide members on ways to better optimize purchased services outcomes and evaluate categories with the greatest ROI potential.
Conductiv Contracts, a secondary GPO focused on local and regional purchased services agreements, will also curate a portfolio to increase contract coverage to diverse, local and regional suppliers to meet Yankee Alliance savings goals. This arrangement further supports Yankee Alliance members with full access to Conductiv’s sourcing expertise to negotiate locally initiated contracts.
Using this intelligence, Yankee Alliance is assembling a CFO steering committee, which will become executive sponsors of their respective organizations and provide peer-reviewed guidance to further strengthen the alliance.
