NPG Delivers Excellence to the Bio-Science Industry
NPG is a proven and trusted IT Advisory firm that provides organizations with expert resources for IT related projects. Our competencies include Unified Communications, SD-WAN, Security and Digital Transformation.
The old model of working with direct sales reps that only know their company product line is being replaced with the Trusted Advisor, an impartial representative to navigate complex service provider solutions. The reason is there’s never been more disruption taking place in technology than there is now. To stay ahead of the competition, organizations are selecting Trusted Advisors for their understanding of the industry, trends and in-depth supplier research that helps drive efficiencies and better outcomes. NPG brings consistency, longevity and strength to your IT organization.
With NPG’s Trusted Advisors you get:
- Highly responsive Single-Point-of-Contact
- Sourcing intelligence and elite IT engineering resources
- Oversight of new service implementations
- First Invoice Review to ensure billing accuracy

“We migrated to a new supplier management system hosted by NPG. Now, our suppliers can update contact information with greater ease and our public purchasers can more easily communicate with suppliers. NPG sends our suppliers regular communications encouraging them to maintain an up-to-date supplier profile, so that City buyers can connect and share upcoming opportunities.” – City Procurement Coordinator (Ohio)
“The Contract Management System helps me stay on top of supplier contracts. We have our contracts in one central location with easy access to important information about pricing, terms, and commitments. Six months before the contract expires, we receive an alert that tells us we need to prepare before the contract auto-renews. The system also sends an alert to the supplier so they can start working on a new proposal. It makes my life easier.” – Michael Foltz, IT Director, DLZ Engineering
“NPG’s Contract Management System gives us instant access to our supplier contracts. The dashboard has everything we need for planning and budgeting. By using ProcureSafe’s platform, we were able to restructure several contracts and reduce overall cost.” – Jeffrey Brotherton, CIO, Columbus College of Art & Design
