Lancaster County, South Carolina, Simplifies Processes with OpenGov eProcurement Software

After Lancaster County, SC, centralized its procurement department, leaders went on a quest for new eProcurement software to simplify processes. They found what they needed through a partnership with OpenGov, the leader in modern cloud software for our nation’s cities.

After centralizing the Department, officials from the County, located just south of Charlotte, were looking to generate internal buy-in by streamlining processes and increasing collaboration through a cloud-based software solution. Their priority: centralize all purchasing, procurement, and contract management. Their favored solution: OpenGov Procurement. OpenGov’s solution was a breath of fresh air after staff members struggled with another platform, a rush purchase made at the start of COVID-19 to handle electronic bid submissions. Instead of helping County staff, the software was prone to server lags, made line-item bidding difficult, and cost countless hours in template building.

With OpenGov Procurement, County staff will be able to:

  • Easily build templates that transform into intuitive workflows through which project managers, reviewers, and buyers can collaborate and track projects.
  • Evaluate and manage vendor bids easily, no matter how simple or complex their award process.
  • Set reminders and notifications for upcoming expired contracts and get a broad view of all contracts—active or past—across the County.
  • Save time on all procurement online processes so they can focus on strategic initiatives.

Lancaster County joins more than 1,100 public sector organizations leveraging OpenGov to revolutionize work processes with cloud-based software designed specifically for the needs of government.
