Concordance Healthcare Solutions is a medical supply distributor which was formed through a merger of Kreisers, MMS - A Medical Supply Company, and Seneca Medical. As one of the largest and independent healthcare distributors in the United States, the company provides medical equipment and supplies for diverse markets including EMS services, extended care, homecare, hospice, and industrial and primary care for both the private and public sectors. For the last 20 years the company has supplied medical and surgical products and services to government agencies; most recently, the company has been able to find even more work with these agencies with the help of BidNet.
Julia Onesto, the Sales Manager at Concordance Healthcare Solutions, says that she has been able to increase the number of relevant government bid opportunities available to Concordance Healthcare Solutions with BidNet’s help. Over the last 20 years she has used BidNet as an employee at three different companies, and when Ms. Onesto began her tenure at Concordance Healthcare Solutions she suggested the company use BidNet’s services to grow their government contracting business.
What Ms. Onesto especially likes about BidNet is that the service provided is “short and sweet”, meaning that all of the most important information about contract opportunities are gathered into one convenient Bid Alert® and sent directly to her inbox. Each morning she can quickly review her bulletin to identify bids that the company would be interested in pursuing, and then makes a quick and informed decision about each one before submitting a proposal.
Compared to other services, Ms. Onesto likes that BidNet provides Concordance Healthcare Solutions with only the most relevant bid opportunities. She appreciates that there is no need to search through multitudes of bids just to find the ones that are relevant to what the company sells. She also appreciates the reasonably-priced service packages BidNet offers and the easy-to-use layout of the website, including its simple navigation and easily accessible bids and documents.
When asked if BidNet has helped Concordance Healthcare Solutions grow or expand, Ms. Onesto replied “Definitely – that’s why we use it.”
When working in a competitive sector such as the medical equipment and supplies industry, leveraging the services provided by BidNet gives companies like Concordance Healthcare Solutions a clear advantage. The number of government bid opportunities available for medical supplies and equipment vendors is very high, but BidNet helps Concordance Healthcare Solutions stay one step ahead of their competition.
