What is a group purchasing organization (GPO)?

Our elite sourcing professionals act as an extension of your purchasing department and pull from our membership of over 430+ hotels to increase your buying power and get you the best rates possible.
What is a group purchasing organization (GPO) and how are they financed?
A GPO utilizes the collective purchasing power of its members to combine volume and negotiate discounts with suppliers.
GPOs work with suppliers to negotiate favorable rates and terms for their member base. To enable independent hotels to stay independent, DayBlink GPO passes zero costs to hotels and only receives compensation directly from their partner suppliers.

Will using a GPO affect the uniqueness of my luxury hotel?
While we are focused on getting the best deals on all spend categories, hoteliers are able to pick and choose individual categories to maintain the individuality of your hotel.
We have had our supplier relationships for numerous years and are not really looking for a change in quality. Why should I use a GPO?
The benefit of a GPO is not just to reduce the cost of your existing spend, but to also look for new opportunities that either increase efficiency of everyday functions or increase quality of the products that you use. If you are not able to find specific opportunities that fit for you right now, our vendor managers will make sure to keep an eye out for applicable opportunities.
Do I have to be a luxury hotel to participate?
Currently, we are focused on providing services targeting the luxury hospitality market but we will be identifying other opportunities in the near future.
After I opt-in, what is the policy on opting-out?
If you would like to opt-out of an existing master contract, please contact your vendor manager to discuss the off-boarding process.
