    Buyers Edge Platform is Built on 'Doing it Differently'

    As an upstart GPO in Rochester, NY in 1998, "Dining Alliance" sought to disrupt the restaurant industry in favor of operator success, transparent pricing, and trusting vendor relationships.
    20+ years later, Buyers Edge Platform is the largest Group Purchasing Organization in the industry with billions in buying power across restaurants, healthcare, casinos, hospitality, higher education, institutions, and entertainment
    Our exponential growth is rooted in a commitment to rejecting the stodgy old ways that GPOs have historically been run. Any time we heard a complaint about ourselves or our competitors, we turned that into an opportunity to improve our offerings
    Risk-taking is in our blood. We developed software that took on the industry's scariest technology and data challenges. We founded and acquired companies when others would have held their positions - all in the name of adding foodservice value and steering the industry in a progressive direction.
