Most contractors offer basic products at exorbitant prices—sometimes even greater than Staples. Since GSA Advantage compares prices from tons of small- and mid-sized businesses, you can EASILY order the cheapest available product from multiple businesses. I have cut down orders from $2000 to under $500 while getting the same product. Implemented government-wide, this can produce significant savings. After all, that is why the GSA has created this service. We need to make sure that before turning to other sources, employees are utilizing a great resource that is available to them!
