Glenwood, Minnesota American Solutions for Business (ASB) has been selected by Novation as a primary vendor to provide key business and promotional products to member facilities. Novation, based in Irving, Texas, is the industry’s leading supply contracting company, delivering savings to more than 25,000 members and affiliates. In 2008 members used Novation and alliance contracts to purchase $35.6 billion in supplies and services and receive discounted pricing through Novation-endorsed vendors like American Solutions for Business. The new agreement replaces the three-year contract between ASB and Novation, set to expire November 30, 2009, designating ASB as an endorsed supplier of goods and services in 15 different categories.
“The Novation contract maintains the opportunity for American to grow its presence in the healthcare industry and offers a great option for Novation facilities,” said Larry Zavadil, CEO and Chairman of the ASB Board of Directors. “We offer outstanding pricing, value and service to our present customers, and we are very excited to be able to continue to bring that value to Novation facilities enabling them to reduce costs wherever they can. We’re proud to be included in that effort.” ASB has an established sales force throughout the country which allows for the seamless implementation of the new three-year Novation contract.
Novation delivers savings to more than 25,000 members and affiliates of VHA Inc. (a national network of not-for-profit health care organizations) and the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC), and more than 20,000 Provista members spanning healthcare, education and corporate markets nationwide. By combining scale and experience with data-driven tools and information, Novation offers an extensive range of advanced contracting services in the industry and beyond.
