Rural Ohio counties often have their advertising exposure limited to vendors in their geographic area. Jackson County sought to reach more bidders throughout Ohio, while also introducing new efficiencies to the bidding process.
Working with the Mannik & Smith Group (MSG), Jackson County became the 100th local public agency (LPA) in Ohio to implement Bid Express. As a platform for secure, online bidding and procurement, Bid Express helps agencies increase the quantity and quality of received bids.
By implementing Bid Express on projects ranging from pavement marking to slip repairs, Jackson County was able to reach more bidders, introduce templates to streamline bid set-up, and eliminate in-person bid openings to reduce unnecessary travel and cost.
- 40-70% increase in bidders
- 4 new bid templates to increased efficiency
"Bid Express gives us the opportunity to reach bidders who might not be looking in the local newspaper for projects in Jackson County."
