Easy to Use - District Connection gives purchasers an efficient, web-based procurement tool to create, publish, and award bids electronically at the click of a button.
Flexible – District Connection can be used from any web browser to manage typical, everyday purchases for individual districts or to manage collaborative purchases.
Issuing individual purchase orders or purchasing off interlocal agreements is easily done through District Connection’s purchasing wizard. The software automatically determines if a participating district has an outstanding purchase order. Purchasers can then purchase off that order. Or, multiple districts can aggregate their purchases on a single purchase order to take advantage of economies of scale.
Daily Tool – District Connection organizes current and past procurements with its built-in record organization and retention system. Past procurements can be easily audited, reviewed, or reissued.
Supplier Connections – District Connection connects purchasers with existing and new suppliers to streamline the bidding and ordering process. A qualified supplier list can be easily maintained. And, those suppliers are automatically notified of new opportunities; purchasers can ensure suppliers receive bid-requests.
District Connection has no upfront capital expenditures, no software development or maintenance costs, and no additional hardware to purchase.
District Connection enables districts to increase savings, better manage their purchasing process, and extract full value from their approved supplier list.
District Connection is available for a low annual fee.
