When Louisiana DOT started using Bid Express, it was like going from a horse and buggy to a rocket ship - without any intermediate steps.

Infotech invented electronic bidding for highway construction over 20 years ago
Producing immediate bid results, having unlimited access to information, and getting on-the-spot notification are some of the major benefits of the service.
