New UKGSA Member Benefits

We have added even more benefits to being a UKGSA Member!

We have teamed up with the nice people at Joined Up Thinking and launched our very own ‘Buying Group’ to make available cost savings to all UKGSA members. They have a database of hundreds of suppliers and thousands of products and services and constantly benchmark deals to make sure our members will always receive the very best value for money. 

They can help with just about everything you purchase, from fuel cards, stationery, utilities, insurance, pest control and coffee machines – and everything in between! 

Most (if not all!) of the deals sourced for you are exclusively available to our association members, and are not available to single stand-alone businesses.  Also, they will be very soon adding more new products and services just for our members, so please keep checking back! 

As a member of UKGSA you can list free of charge on the portal your company should you so wish.  If so, just drop us an email. 

What’s more, they have agreed that you can use their ‘Invoice Watch’ service free of charge as many times as you like.  All you have to do is send them a copy invoice for a recent product or service you have purchased, and they will check to make sure you received the best value for money.

At the very least, the research they carry out for you will show if you currently buy at the right price, and if you should consider changing suppliers!

They are also happy to help source any products or services for us that may not already be listed - just drop them a note at any time. 

Full details can be found on our new secure portal at ukgsportal.co.uk. It is password protected, but just click the link in the homepage to order yours now. 

Their services are 100% free of charge to our members and 100% secure, and you only have to take their recommendations should you wish to do so. Think of the UKGSPortal as your very own company buyer!
