AMERICAN FORK, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 08/14/13 -- BidSync (www.bidsync.com), the leading provider of cloud-based, end-to-end procurement solutions for the public sector, today announced a new partnership with Power Almanac (www.poweralmanac.com), a leader in collating local government contacts for vendors nationwide.
The partnership will enable BidSync customers to access accurate, cost-effective and current contact information for local government decision-makers. Connecting vendors directly with local government decision-makers helps improve the quality of bid requests and reduce procurement cycle times.
"Qualified suppliers and service providers across the country are seeking ways to proactively build mutually beneficial relationships with local government decision-makers," said Russell Petty, director of Links PLUS sales at BidSync. "Power Almanac's services will help increase business opportunities for our customers."
Power Almanac works to provide suppliers and service providers with the most current and comprehensive contact information for decision-makers from 21,000 counties, cities and townships nationwide. Power Almanac's value comes not only from being comprehensive, accurate and easy to use but also from how the contact information is sorted -- officials are categorized by roles, instead of title, to help vendors proactively reach the right person the first time.
"During our research process, we found that there are dozens or even hundreds of different titles for each role," said Jeremiah Calvino, VP of Marketing for Power Almanac. "For instance, we found many cases where the clerk is also the head of purchasing, or the finance director is in charge of IT. Our system allows businesses to find the right decision-maker, regardless of the title."
BidSync's cloud-based solutions are designed and built to find more relevant bids for BidSync's national database of more than 700,000 qualified suppliers and service providers. For more information about BidSync and its end-to-end suite of e-procurement solutions, visit www.bidsync.com.
