Federal Government Purchasing Portal
Adorama Business Solutions, the premier technology resource for public, private, and federal institutions, announced its new federal government purchasing portal. The dedicated e-commerce site provides access to thousands of technology and electronics products, with built-in compliance tools to simplify and streamline the purchase experience. Federal government employees can now register for a free account and browse Adorama's range of more than 250,000 products spanning across photography, video, audio, lighting and studio gear, drones, public safety and forensics equipment, virtual and augmented reality, computers, office equipment and more.

The purchasing portal offers a range of features that remove complexities often involved in purchasing for the federal government, including clearly labeled country of origin information on products, and contract pricing automatically applied. From the purchasing portal dashboard, customers can easily manage orders, re-order frequently purchased items, and contact their assigned Account Manager for any technical or order-related questions.

For many years our customers have been asking for an e-commerce experience that makes life simpler when purchasing from our extensive range of technology products.

It all ties together. You want your sales reps to behave a certain way and close a certain amount of deals in specific verticals that match your company’s 3- and/or 5-year vision, but the systems you currently have in place to drive this behavior are not working for any number of reasons. Most likely, they’re too slow. Or too complicated. Or not scalable. Almost certainly, it’s at least one of the above if not all three. Growing companies, especially enterprises, need big solutions to handle their sales operation’s size and complexity.

Bidscale: A Software Solution for Modernizing and Accelerating Government Procurement

Bidscale | August 17, 2022

Bidscale is announcing the public launch and refresh of their flagship software, Bidscale Select. Federal contracting is the backbone of America. From combat helicopters to scientific research, contracts underpin the operational effectiveness of our country. Contracting is big business, with $680B spent annually. Quick and smart government procurement leads to a stronger and more prosperous America. The current process is burdened by a lack of digitization resulting in a five-to-seven-year timetable from contract conceptualization to award. This stifles the Government's ability to obtain the latest and greatest innovation. For example, if it takes five years to buy a three-year-old combat system, by the time it is purchased and implemented, the technology would be at least eight years old. Bidscale has proven that the slowdown comes from a lack of tools necessary for Contracting Officers. These officers need to advance away from the usage of pens, highlighters, and post-it notes and move into the digital realm where collaboration, communication, and effective workflow tracking occur all in one place. Addressing this situation has garnered bipartisan support, illuminated by the AGILE Procurement Act, a reformation that enhances agile technology acquisition across the Federal Government. Bidscale is addressing the situation too, saving time by digitizing the source selection process. Through a secure environment, Bidscale supports the full lifecycle of source selection activities including proposal submission, evaluation, consensus, reporting, and artifact generation. It can take weeks for a Contracting Officer to compile and export source selection artifacts, but Bidscale does it in under ten seconds, and that is just one of the many features. "I'm very proud to have seen Bidscale already successfully implemented during several major Federal Government source selection processes, this company is committed to developing even more tools to continuously improve and digitize this contracting process. I believe Bidscale is a Govtech company to watch." -Tony Kwag, founder of Bidscale. Bidscale was made for Contracting Officers by Contracting Officers, so it addresses the most pressing needs through the following product modules: Evaluation – Allows users to virtually conduct proposal evaluations with supporting data on a single screen. Contracting Artifacts – Allows users to manage contracting artifacts and auto-generate comprehensive reports. Consensus – Users can run consolidated reviews to ensure quality control and adherence to source selection requirements. Contracting Workflow – A progress tracker where users can centrally manage and report on the source selection process by managing progress, schedule, risk, submissions, and reporting. This feature is especially useful when team members are not in the same room. Ultimately, Bidscale creates a source selection process that is repeatable, traceable, defendable, and scalable. About Bidscale: Founded in Arlington, Virginia, Bidscale is a software solution that is mission-focused on accelerating innovation across the Federal Government. Bidscale is a Small Disadvantaged Business pending 8(a) certification and has achieved SOC 2 compliance.
