A state health agency on the East Coast ran a very successful ID card printing bid using eBridge’s reverse auction technology. The agency had used a previous quote to establish a budget of $147,000 for the five year contract. Seven bidders were approved by the agency to compete for the business. At the end of the 25 minute online bidding event, a local vendor won the bid at $107,902. The second place bidder was only $9 behind and third place was less than $1,000 off the lead. This once again proves that an eBridge reverse auction delivers not just a great low price, but competitive alternatives.
