Organizations began offering Procurement as a Service in 3,000 BCE in Egypt. Nearly 5,000 years later, Direct Supply® Procurement Services (DSPS) provides healthcare procurement expertise to our customers, saving money, driving efficiencies, and more.

What is Procurement as a Service?

Procurement as a Service, as the name suggests, is a strategic approach to managing a company’s procurement needs by expanding various aspects of the procurement process to a specialized service provider. This concept encompasses a range of procurement-related activities, such as supplier management, order processing, data analytics, and cost optimization.

The primary goal of PaaS is to relieve the administrative burden associated with procurement, so organizations can focus on their core competencies and strategic initiatives. It offers companies the flexibility to scale their procurement capabilities up or down as needed, without the need for substantial investments in infrastructure and personnel.

Partnering with Direct Supply® Procurement Services (DSPS)

With Direct Supply Procurement Services, we understand that our customers may have their own internal procurement services teams. DSPS isn’t a traditional third-party vendor. We recognize that many of our valued customers already maintain their own in-house procurement services teams, and we partner with your procurement team to provide Procurement as a Service.
