Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 24, 2009
BidPrime.com, an online service geared toward providing government bid contract and procurement information to small businesses, announced its public beta opening today. BidPrime advances government purchasing to the Web 2.0 era - where relevant information is offered real-time and provided using an online "Software-as-a-Service" interface that is unique to the government purchasing industry.
BidPrime uses a revolutionary interface to track newly-released federal, state, and local bid opportunities and manage these opportunities in flexible ways that work for any vendor operating on a regional or nationwide level. "Online software is the future of business connectivity and success," said Joshua Schwartzbeck, BidPrime's Chief Developer and Information Officer, adding that "these platforms save the costs of updating and syncing information with outdated in-house softwares."
Subscriptions start at a monthly fee of $50 beginning in September. However, interested vendors may subscribe by invite to a risk-free, no credit card trial for up to one month of access to BidPrime's bid database.
BidPrime's real-time nature lies in its "Latest Leads" ticker on its home page (http://www.bidprime.com/). Here, visitors see timestamps of incoming government bids added to BidPrime's database. "Many small business vendors are at a disadvantage because of slow access to timely information," stated Stephen Hetzel, BidPrime's Operations Officer and Product Developer. "Using other services, these vendors miss out on three to five days of important planning and development time for their proposals, and that time matters when a deadline is only a week or two away."
The following unique features are currently available with BidPrime's beta release:
- Access bid information from anywhere, from any computer.
- Upgrades included.
- Search incoming government bids by keyword, agency, or state.
- Customized notification options of multiple email addresses
- Add notes and relevant information to leads.
- Real-time access and customized notification to relevant government bids.
- Helpdesk support included.
