Township of Toms River, NJ, Advances Procurement Capabilities with OpenGov

Struggling with a high volume of requests and limited resources for procurement, the Township of Toms River, New Jersey, had an urgent need for a comprehensive software solution. To help, the Township chose OpenGov, a leading software solution for local government known for its end-to-end procurement software.

Located along the Jersey Shore, Toms River’s lean staff grappled with a back and forth approval process between departments and an inadequate system for solicitation development and contract management. The Township was looking for a solution to reduce the time from solicitation development to contract execution, and to centralize contracts into a single, searchable repository.

The Township anticipates big improvements to its procurement work with the adoption of OpenGov Procurement. The automated, ongoing management of contracts and associated documentation will reduce the workload on the Township’s procurement staff. Additionally, the new system will create a seamless workflow for SOW (Statement of Work) development, transforming the process from collecting bits and pieces into the automated creation of a single document.

The Township of Toms River joins thousands of public sector organizations leveraging OpenGov to revolutionize work processes with cloud-based software designed specifically for the needs of government.
