Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) October 11, 2016
Community Transit, the public transit authority of Snohomish County, Washington, recently chose eBid Systems as their procurement software provider. For the past 40 years, Community Transit has served the people of Snohomish county with a bus and rapid transit system that now connects over 500,000 people in 8 cities. Since the launch of their eBid Systems procurement portal on July 28th of this year, Community Transit has seen over 900 suppliers register through the system. Community Transit is the 14th major public transportation agency in the US to implement procurement solutions from eBid Systems.
Because transportation agencies are infrastructure intensive, they must manage complex construction projects involving hundreds or thousands of pages of specifications and drawings. eBid Systems software facilitates the distribution of construction documents through a vendor-accessible portal saving the transportation agency the time and money they would otherwise spend printing and mailing plans and revisions. Transit agencies that use eBid Systems software typically report efficiency gains of 50% to 70% over their previous manual processes.
With a procurement solution from eBid Systems, Community Transit expects to expand their supplier network, streamline the sourcing of goods and services, and better track compliance with Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) regulations governing their federally funded projects. eBid Systems software will facilitate this process online, allowing the transportation agency to access all key bid information online in a centralized location.
When transportation agencies like Community Transit choose to implement eBid Systems software, both buyers and sellers benefit. The transit agencies see improvement in their process, vendors are happy with the easy access to information and streamlined process, and more taxpayer dollars can be focused on what really matters, excellent transportation services.
