AOPD makes it easy to enjoy the benefits of a national purchasing program and still have the advantages of working with local service partners. AOPD customers have options, including "single point of contact" customer service and service directly from the AOPD distributor in their local market. Either way, AOPD offers superior sales and customer service from industry professionals that know your company and your local market.
AOPD distributors offer a full range of office products, including computer supplies, maintenance supplies, recycled products, green products and items from minority and/or women owned businesses. Also, AOPD distributors offer furniture, mailroom and shipping supplies, ad specialties, Jan/San, breakroom and coffee services and many other non-traditional products enabling you to consolidate your purchasing needs.
Full Line Catalog
AOPD's single national catalog makes it easy to find all of your supply needs and provides consistency for your purchasing program. In addition, the AOPD catalog is fully compliant with most major e-commerce systems.
AOPD's broad array of order entry options means end-users can order the way that is most convenient. Choices include toll-free phone, fax, one-to-one salesperson visits and electronic methods such as e-mail and internet platforms that support all major e-procurement systems.
AOPD can accommodate a variety of order placement options within a single agreement, allowing you to utilize various ordering methods by location or within a single location.
Your National Account Program
Since its establishment in 1978, AOPD has been the leader in developing national distribution programs. Our experience guarantees customized design, timely implementation and outstanding service for your national account program. Some national suppliers are driven by the value of their share price. To an AOPD dealer, only one thing determines "shareholder value" - complete customer satisfaction.
With AOPD's distribution benefits, product selection, ordering conveniences and billing and payment options, we combine national program benefits with local service advantages.
Providing Local Service, Nationwide to Public Sector Customers
Choose the Right Purchasing Program • The AOPD America's Choice cooperative purchasing (piggy-back) agreement was negotiated by AOPD member Sandia Office Supply with Bernalillo County, NM. • AOPD America's Choice extends its pricing, terms and conditions on office supplies to other public entities from local and state government to public schools and colleges. • This gives you the access to quality branded products at an affordable price, while saving you the time and resources of a lengthy RFP process.
Choose Local • When buying through AOPD America's Choice, you support locally owned dealers, thereby keeping your budgeted procurement dollars within your community. • This directly nurtures local businesses, but more importantly, provides income to local people.
Choose Cost Savings Up Front • Other cooperative purchasing programs offer rebates, requiring you to spend more to receive the benefit. • With America's Choice, you get the reduced costs up front, without any reduction in customer services.
Choose Friendly, Efficient Customer Service • With AOPD America's Choice, there is contract pricing on approximately 23,000 items, with the option for you to customize your office supply agreement to include your favorite products. • If an item is discontinued, we will contact you with an appropriate substitution. • Orders can be placed online, or via fax or phone. • Deliveries are made on AOPD's trucks using drivers with established routes, ensuring that customers have the same driver each time. • Returns can be called in, faxed in or entered online, and are picked up with the next delivery. • At AOPD, we work with you, not just for you.
