Vendor IMPACT

Assurance, through transparency and diligence

Supply pricing is a critical component of any organization’s financial structure. It is imperative that vendor pricing be properly managed to ensure accuracy and effectiveness.

Archstone Management’s proprietary Vendor IMPACT Program ensures the prices that were promised by vendors are being adhered to. Our unique approach to price assurance is unlike any other. Leveraging various contract catalogs, benchmarking, big data, and our unique algorithms, we are able to discern incorrect pricing on a product by product & invoice by invoice level.

While GPOs focus on go-forward cost savings and price improvement, Archstone’s Vendor IMPACT Progam focuses price assurance. While they are working to get better pricing, we focus on ensuring accuracy.

Archstone’s Vendor IMPACT Program runs in the background of hospital operations, operating out of sight.
