When a large state university needed to purchase pool covers for their swimming facility, they enlisted the expertise of eBridge and its purchasing strategy to get the job done.
Three suppliers competed on three different swimming pool covers, each varying in size and specifications.
The largest swimming pool cover in the bid yielded eight first place turnovers with 21 total bids, resulting in 26 time extensions. At the conclusion of the bid, a mere 1.8% difference between first and second place bids, indicating that true market value had been achieved. The overall savings for the three swimming pool covers combined was nearly 25% versus budget.
