Office Depot, Inc., a popular provider of office products and related services for many Louisiana medical providers, has been added as the first entry into Advantage Physicians Purchasing Alliance’s (AdvantagePPA) list of cost-saving partner-agreements. The new AdvatagePPA partner-agreement promises Louisiana medical practices discounts of up to 66% on items within 48 broad categories of commonly purchased office supplies.

“We are pleased to kick off the AdvantagePPA purchasing program with a partnership offering deeply discounted office supply pricing to medical providers and their practices in the state of Louisiana,” said Kyle Gillman, AdvantagePPA’s CEO.

With over 40 stores operating in the state, Office Depot is a convenient source for everything medical practices need to be productive, including the latest technology, core office supplies, print and document services, business services and facilities products.

After registering for the program, members can shop online or in any Office Depot or Office Max retail store and will receive discounts on purchased items by identifying their participation with an exclusive AdvantagePPA Purchasing Card, downloadable in PDF from the AdvantagePPA site. When using the purchase card in stores, members and other eligible participants will receive the AdvantagePPA discount pricing or local sales price if lower. This card can be used for business or personal purposes by the card holder.

In partnership with the Louisiana State Medical Society (LSMS), AdvantagePPA is a Physician’s Buying Group (PBG) that allows the state’s medical practices to efficiently buy discounted products or services. The new agreement with Office Depot is AdvantagePPA’s partner-agreement; negotiations are underway with other national vendors. To view the Office Depot partner-agreement, visit:
