ConnXus & RLC Promote Supplier Diversity Partnership in Healthcare Industry

MASON, Ohio, May 2, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- ConnXus and Robinson LaRueCo Consulting (RLC) have entered into a strategic partnership that delivers high quality supplier diversity engagement to the healthcare industry. The exclusive agreement allows RLC to use ConnXus's supplier diversity solutions during consultations with its clients, allowing ConnXus to focus on delivering value-add supplier management software, with opportunities to connect with current and prospective clients.

ConnXus and RLC share the desire to help small, diverse businesses succeed. The partnership will provide a service that draws on the strengths of both organizations. The partnership will increase RLC's penetration into non-diversity focused platforms while RLC provides ConnXus with greater access and awareness in healthcare--an ideal marriage between solutions provider and consulting firm.

"We are the only supplier diversity consulting firm that has direct healthcare supplier diversity and procurement experience, as we've worked for and with GPOs, hospitals, distributors, manufacturers and pharmaceuticals. This is a significant partnership for the industry," said RLC CEO Lamont Robinson. According to Robinson, RLC uses its industry-wide relationships to improve the inclusion of diverse suppliers into an organization's supply chain. RLC's continual education through panels, eLearning programs, executive management programs, and other platforms helps to increase the amount of competition across various industries which results in cost reduction.

With RLC's consulting expertise, ConnXus will be able to provide a robust suite of solutions that include SmartScrub supplier data enrichment, Tier 1 Spend Analysis & TierTracker, Supplier Registration Portal, Database & SmartSearch. With global recognition and credibility as well as excellent customer service, both teams are looking forward to a fruitful collaboration.
