City of Richmond, California, Eases Bid Process with OpenGov Partnership

When the City of Richmond, CA, needed to take its bidding process from cumbersome to manageable and easy, it partnered with OpenGov, the leader in modern cloud ERP software for our nation’s cities, counties, and state agencies, for online procurement software.

The City’s Senior Buyer and her team had been building bid solicitations in Microsoft Word, a process described as “disjointed” and “painful.” The team needed help, stat. That’s when it turned to OpenGov Procurement to simplify its process. 

With OpenGov Procurement, the team will not only eliminate Word documents, but they’ll also take the process paperless by collaborating online. OpenGov’s solution streamlines procurement to align solicitations, responses, and evaluations. The intuitive software will guide project managers, reviewers, and buyers as they track the status of projects, from bid development to proposal evaluations to supplier interactions. Thanks to this time-saving process, the team can expect to save up to 75% less time writing and releasing RFPs and bids.

The City of Richmond joins more than 1,000 public sector organizations leveraging OpenGov to revolutionize work processes with cloud-based software designed specifically for the needs of government.
