New Article Focuses on Capital Purchases



Capital Purchasing 101 by CHAMPS Group PurchasingOn Monday, July 10, 2017, CHAMPS Group Purchasing released an article focused on capital purchases authored by Associate Vice President Tracy Wise. The article is being released as a follow-up to last month's quarterly CHAMPS Talks Webinar on capital planning which was led by Jan Elder, CHAMPS Group Purchasing's director of contracting services.

In the piece, Wise defines capital purchasing and shares four tool categories for helping members save money on capital purchases:

1. Contracts & Negotiations

2. Group Buys

3. Refurbished & Pre-Owned Equipment

4. Benchmarking, Planning & Financing Services

These tools may be used separately or combined to lessen the impact of increased demand for planned and unplanned capital purchases. Contact us to learn more about CHAMPS' capital purchasing resources.
