BidSync Launches Groundbreaking Series With Cooperative Purchasing E-Book for Public Sector

Become a Cooperative Purchasing Expert and Do More With Less

AMERICAN FORK, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/14 -- BidSync, the industry leader in developing cloud-based end-to-end procurement solutions for the public sector, continues its mission to add value and harness innovation with a new e-book.

"It's exciting to connect with the community through media like our e-books," says BidSync's interim CEO, Fred Tillman. "The more we know, the more knowledge we gather and share, the better the industry gets as a whole. We're starting with Cooperative Agreements 101 because, quite simply, cooperative purchasing helps public agencies do more with less."

More than 50% of government agencies project that they will increase their use of co-ops in the next three years. According to public sector procurement professionals, this is due to big benefits like time savings, drastically reduced expenses, well-written contracts, expanding price tiers and better quality of service from vendors. By joining a procurement cooperative or piggybacking on an existing contract, an agency can significantly reduce acquisition expenses and procurement cycle times while increasing operational efficiencies.

Cooperative Agreements 101: Graduating with a "Degree" in Purchasing Power is designed to teach the evolution of e-procurement, what public sector agencies and organizations get from participating in cooperative purchasing, how to determine if a particular co-op is a good fit, and what happens next. With resources including links, white papers, videos and more, Cooperative Agreements 101 offers a quick overview of the co-op market and the path to choosing the right co-op partner.

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production.
