Top Federal Contractor ManTech International Corporation Expands Use of Privia® by Synchris™
ManTech Standardizes on Privia Software for Bid and Proposal Management
STERLING, VA - January 17, 2006 – Government contracting software solutions developer Synchris, Inc. announced today that ManTech International Corporation, a leading provider of innovative technologies and solutions for mission-critical national security programs, will now use Privia software across their entire enterprise for bid and proposal management.
ManTech, recently selected to the Red Herring Small Cap 100 for its innovative technology and smart business models, is deploying Privia to manage government proposal development activities across all of the organization's operating groups. Privia's collaboration tools make it easy to share information and documents with remote teams. Efficiencies gained with Privia help managers stay focused on developing winning proposals, rather than concentrating on routine tasks.
"ManTech has been using Privia since early 2004 to enhance our proposal development process across multiple ManTech organizations and to better connect teaming partners/subcontractors in that process. Now, we want to expand the use of Privia to apply our best practices across the entire ManTech enterprise to further increase our overall proposal productivity and win rates," said ManTech Senior Vice President Bill Baker. "Privia allows online, secure connectivity to all proposal participants, regardless of their location, and facilitates overall proposal management collaboration, including conducting online reviews, which minimizes the need for expensive face-to-face meetings and teleconferences."
"The market has clearly identified the need for an easy-to-use proposal management solution that provides a single database of record, with easy and secure access to a distributed team" comments Synchris Vice President of Sales Michael Jakab. "Privia is an ideal platform for the document intensive proposal development process."
Privia enables government contractors to increase sales through improved pipeline management and bid response. Privia is delivered with complete Microsoft desktop integration and includes document management, teaming partner connectivity, secure communication with presence detection, configurable workflow, reporting, and comprehensive search capabilities through an easy-to-use interface. Privia is capable of supporting hundreds of team members from multiple companies working together in real-time for efficient bid response and task order management. The software is scalable to accommodate from five to 5,000 users.
