No longer doing plan-printing work for your State's DOT? InfoTech and BidExpress may well be the reason why.
The last time we put up a post on Reprographics 101 about InfoTech and BidExpress was on April 4, 2011
Here’s a link to that prior post:
When I visited the web-sites of InfoTech and BidExpress back then, BidExpress had made excellent progress signing up customers. Now, some 5 ½ years later, it’s quite evident that BidExpress’ growth has been astonishing. Look at the bold blue type in the Infotech paragraph below. And, click on the link that shows a list of BidExpress’ customer list.
If you are in the reprographics business and used to do plan-printing work for your State’s DOT, if you aren’t now doing plan-printing work for your State’s DOT, it’s probably because your State’s DOT has implemented BidExpress.
From the “about” InfoTech page:
“If you are driving on a highway in North America, there is a good chance that software developed by Info Tech was used to build it. In the U.S., 44 of the 50 state transportation agencies use Info Tech-developed software to manage their road construction projects. We work closely with our partners to develop, implement, maintain, and support automated infrastructure construction management and Internet bidding solutions that satisfy their business needs.”
Bid Express is owned by InfoTech, the company I mentioned above.
