    The current lockdown situation is temporary but the changes to the way that our world works will likely persist long after. What would have taken years in the shift towards digitization and remote working, has happened in a matter of months. Among other things, agencies can expect to see greater demand for cloud-based options for securely receiving and evaluating bids and proposals. Luckily, cloud-based eProcurement solutions can enable remote teamwork and cooperation while increasing vendor participation. 
    In this webinar, The City of Leesburg, Florida shares their experience of going digital and our panel discusses some of the changes we are seeing in supplier behavior, procurement processes, and what we can expect in the future.


     After completing this online training session, learners will be able to:
    1.  Have a clearer definition of the technologies that are bringing solicitations online.
    2.  Better understand the digital transformation taking place across the procurement space
    3.  Recognize changes that they can make to improve buyer participation post-COVID
