NEWBURYPORT, Mass. (PRWEB) November 06, 2019
IACCM (The International Association for Contract & Commercial Management) today recognized winners of the 2019 Innovation Awards during a ceremony at the Americas conference in Phoenix.
Among the winners, Chelan County Public Utility District was awarded the Innovation and Excellence Award for Strategic Direction following an expansive implementation of Corridor Company's Contract Management Platform, Contracts 365, in an effort to streamline their sourcing and contracting processes.
"Our organization needed to think differently about the synergy across Contract, Solicitation and Supplier Management." said Mark Belton, Contract Specialist at Chelan Public Utility District "Duplicative efforts and complex data relationships requiring the inclusion of board resolutions, engineering evaluations for competitive bids, complex contract retainage data and prevailing wage data forced us to rethink our processes from the ground up."
Mark concluded "I’m honored to receive this award from IACCM, in recognition of the substantial undertaking this project represented for our organization."
Tim Cummins, President of IACCM commented, "Fragmentation of process and activities is the enemy of efficiency. But more than that, it also stands in the way of innovation. By challenging the basics, Chelan Public Utility District have not only transformed slow, inefficient sourcing and contracting practices, they have also established a vision for the future."
"The platform for Chelan's new vision of supplier and contract management had to be robust, secure and extremely user friendly. Contracts 365 was designed to provide the perfect blend of those attributes." added Corridor Company CEO, Russ Edelman. " Mark's success with this project goes beyond software. His vision and conviction were the real driving factors here."
