AMERICAN FORK, UT -- (Marketwire) -- 02/26/13 -- BidSync (www.bidsync.com), a leading provider of cloud-based e-procurement solutions for the public sector, today announced that Pembroke Pines in Broward County, Fla., has invested in BidSync solutions to optimize its procurement and contract management platform.
Pembroke Pines will use BidSync Source and BidSync Contract to modernize its procurement and contract management process and move away from the paper-based processes it had previously employed. With BidSync solutions, the city can create bids faster, track spend and contract compliance while reducing costs and improving vendor transparency.
"By moving our e-procurement and contract management processes to BidSync, tasks that used to take hours and days, such as creating reports for management, will now be accomplished in minutes and seconds, thanks to automation the system provides," said Christina Sorensen, Purchasing Manager for the City of Pembroke Pines. "We are better empowered to manage the multitude of contracts we handle from before they are signed, during the negotiations and throughout the entire lifecycle of the contract. This will make it easier for us to work with vendors and for vendors to work with us."
"Government agencies at all levels are required to conduct bids to find the best price or best value. BidSync Source streamlines the process and allows Pembroke Pines to do more bids, increase competition and get better pricing," said Sabrina Stover, CEO of BidSync. "By creating and managing their contracts online with BidSync Contract, they will be able to know at a glance the status of every benchmark on every contract. Previously, it would have taken hours to dig through filing cabinets to uncover that level of detail. Transparency and visibility are brought to the forefront in living color, and they are now empowered to make more strategic sourcing and contracting decisions."
Because the system is cloud-based, the city expects a rapid deployment and adoption, and it will be able to quickly and easily create, distribute and manage all types of bid solicitations electronically in a safe and secure online environment.
Since 1999, BidSync has been a market leader in developing cloud-based, end-to-end procurement solutions for the public sector. More than 1,000 government agencies use BidSync's solutions to increase business efficiency, amplify spending power, manage contracts, improve process transparency and increase competition by leveraging BidSync's database of 700,000 qualified suppliers and service providers.
