ProSel /IT Bid Supportâ˘ is a new e-Business program designed to help IT VARs win more government IT contracts, where an e-Commerce system is required.
Online PR News – 13-July-2011 – – According to Market Research Media, a firm that specializes in forecasting federal IT policy, the total annual U.S. Federal IT market will surpass $116 billion by 2015, growing steadily â at about 4.7% over the next five years.
ProSel /IT Bid Supportâ˘ is a new program designed to assist IT resellers with everything they need (related to e-commerce technical requirements and capabilities), to respond to Government bid requests and RFP's, without actually committing to an e-commerce solution prior to winning the contract.
The Federal IT market over the near term will be driven by two major forces â pressure to increase efficiency, and the drive to implement new technologies. Government agencies seeking to transform their business processes are embracing e-Business and e-Commerce initiatives at an accelerating rate.
One very active âhot spotâ is the automation of Information Technology (IT) product procurement. The constant innovation/turn-over of IT products, combined with the tremendous variety of products available and large numbers of purchase transactions makes the IT product purchasing business ripe for e-business automation efforts.
IT VARs focused on the government marketplace are finding that an increasing number of government bid requests and RFPâs have specified that the ordering of IT products must be available via the bidderâs e-commerce system, making an electronic ordering system a de-facto requirement for winning the business. For IT resellers without an existing e-Commerce system capable of meeting the government agencyâs specific requirements, responding to such bid requests can be a futile effort.
To help IT resellers bridge this gap, ACG Technologies has introduced a new pre-bid support program to assist IT resellers respond to the e-Commerce requirements of bid requests and RFPs, without actually committing to an e-Commerce solution prior to winning the bid. ProSel /IT Bid Supportâ˘ is a new program designed specifically for IT resellers, by assisting them with bid preparation (related to the e-Commerce technical requirements and capabilities), no-cost reseller-branded demonstration sites, and other pre-bid support services.
