Vienna, Virginia, Automates Purchasing Process with OpenGov eProcurement Software
Located less than 20 miles from our nation’s capital, the Town of Vienna, VA, was looking to automate its procurement process from solicitation development to contract management. Officials chose a partnership with OpenGov, the leader in modern cloud software for our nation’s local government, on eProcurement software.
Bogged down in paper, three-ring binders, and manual processes, Vienna’s Procurement team struggled with solicitation development, supplier engagement, and contract management. They needed an end-to-end solution that would automate the entire procurement process. Enter OpenGov Procurement.
OpenGov will benefit the Town by:
- Reducing the time needed to develop RFPs by up to 75% thanks to a scope library and automated document creation.
- Giving staff the ability to track milestones and set alerts for upcoming deadlines so that they never miss a contract deadline again.
- Offering vendors an easy-access, self-service vendor portal that features guided step-by-step questionnaire-like proposal submissions. Plus, build a vendor group and send solicitations by NIGP codes. Thanks to this ease of use, more vendors are likely to submit bids, which could drive down costs.
- Increasing the ability to analyze spending with a single data dashboard, which allows for spreadsheets and charts to be exported for easy reporting and greater transparency.
The Town of Vienna joins more than 1,600 public sector organizations leveraging OpenGov to revolutionize work processes with cloud-based software designed specifically for the needs of government.
