Arkansas College saves $300,000 on Janitorial Services

Pulaski Technical College in Arkansas recently used eBridge to manage an RFP for Janitorial Services. The eBridge sourcing team brought 10 suppliers to compete for their business. The eAuction lasted 52 minutes and 186 bids were placed, including 82 time extensions. The final spread between first and second place suppliers was only 0.65%, showing that the school achieved true market value. In the end, the school saved over $300,000 vs. budget, a 17% savings on the previous contract. The Director of Purchasing, Tim Walbert, had this to say about the process: “Thanks again for providing a seamless, user-friendly process, and for saving our institution several hundred thousand dollars!”
