Streamline strategic sourcing and automate service contracting
For estimators and contract managers
Soliciting consultant service projects can be a time-consuming and error-prone process. You must break down complex work structures, select prospective consultants using best-value methods, and negotiate with selected vendors to create consultant contracts.
What if all of this could be automated using a modern, cloud-based solution? What if you could manage all your contracts in one system, streamlining the project contractor-selection process, enabling online negotiations and automating the award process?
