Washington, DC (PRWEB) April 12, 2011
Winvale, the Nation’s leading government contracts consultancy and value-added reseller announced today that it has launched its newly re-tooled GSA Schedule Marketplace Portal GSASchedule.com. With a nearly 2,000% increase in traffic since it was launched at the start of the month, the portal has quickly become the focal point of the nearly $38 billion GSA Schedule Contract program.
“We believe the GSASchedule.com portal will become the industry Center of Excellence and begin consolidating the highly fragmented GSA Schedule marketplace”, said Winvale Managing Partner, Kevin Lancaster. “We’ve built an ecosystem for the benefit of both industry and government that is designed to encourage research, support, and collaboration between the two. We also view the portal as a great way to support GSA by driving more traffic to their procurement programs”.
As Winvale is both a government contracts consultancy with nearly a thousand clients as well as an active government contractor, Winvale has had the luxury of seeing the evolution of the GSA Schedule marketplace over the past 10 years from a unique position. “We’ve come to realize that there is a significant shortfall in the marketplace when it comes to a consolidated portal that provides GSA contractors a greater marketing presence on the web and the tools they need to effectively get on and manager their GSA Schedule Contracts”, said Lancaster. “The data that we’ve aggregated over the past two years suggests that government end-users and buyers conduct market research like the rest of us; on Google, Yahoo and Bing. We wanted to build an eco-system that government buyers can easily navigate and that allows contractors to have the opportunity to have a more holistic view of their capabilities by allowing them to post detailed corporate overviews, capability statements, past performance descriptions, GSA Schedule contract links, pricelist information, photos, and social media links, including their YouTube videos."
GSASchedule.com also offers both new and existing contractors a do-it-yourself GSA Schedule management portal complete with proposal templates, helpful tools, tips and helpdesk support. GSA consulting services are also available for those organizations looking for additional expert guidance along the way.
The GSA Schedule program gives federal, state, and local government buyers direct access to over 16,000 approved small and large businesses through 40 unique GSA Schedules and provides access to millions of commercial products and services at discounted pricing.
