In the past year, the Ontario Construction Alliance Association and its seven regional construction associations also developed their procurement platform, LINK2BUILD, using a digital procurement platform by eSolutionsGroup.
“We’re thrilled that eSolutionsGroup will make it easier than ever for BC’s construction industry to conduct the business of procurement efficiently and effectively,” said eSolutionsGroup Principal and bids&tenders Product Owner Alison Carden. “We pride ourselves in providing innovative solutions in partnership with our clients to meet their unique and complex needs.”
BidCentral will retain its brand name and continue to be managed by the BCCA on behalf of the four Regional Construction Associations, whose Project Services staff will continue to provide BidCentral support to members. More information regarding product enhancements and platform integrations will be forthcoming. BidCentral will launch on the eSolutionsGroup platform by April 1, 2020.
