SYNCHRIS ANNOUNCES INTEGRATION OF CENTURION GOVERNMENT CONTRACTOR INTELLIGENCE TOOL INTO ENHANCED PRIVIA® 4.2
Privia Integrates 'One Click' Download of Powerful COMPASS^GS™ Data; Permits One-Click Import of Best ID/IQ, GWAC Task Order Opportunity Intel into Privia.
September 18 2006 – Sterling, VA - Synchris, Inc., announced today that it has reached an agreement with Centurion Research Corporation to integrate Centurion's powerful COMPASS^GS government contract intelligence tool into a newly upgraded version of Synchris' Privia 4.2. The Synchris product is used by customers engaged in government contracts, bid proposals, and task order management under multiple award task and delivery contracts (ID/IQs) and Government-wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs).
Centurion's COMPASS^GS is an online application for identifying, tracking and managing pipelines of procurement opportunities and related business intelligence in the government contracting industry. Subscribers use COMPASS^GS for both their long range strategic planning as well as day-to-day tactical intelligence on specific opportunities. COMPASS^GS includes long lead pre-RFP and emerging embryonic opportunities, task order opportunities under GWACS and ID/IQ contract vehicles, and pricing intelligence.
Synchris Vice President of Product Marketing Annie Eissler said: "The addition of Centurion's powerful tools to Privia gives our customers yet another online resource that further sets us apart from generic sales force automation tools. Access to task order opportunity data under GWAC and ID/IQ awards, such as Seaport, helps our customers more effectively compete as the federal government steps up its use of these types of 'umbrella' contract vehicles. Privia's latest feature extends the recent addition of one-click download of FSI and INPUT opportunity data, helping government contractors get the best possible 'big picture' overview of all the information they need into their pipeline more quickly."
Centurion CEO Joseph Cooper said: "Centurion's research team tracks thousands of pre-announced opportunities. COMPASS^GS allows Centurion's subscribers to save time in identifying and qualifying new business opportunities and to market their company to the government customer, develop their capture strategy and build their team long before the bid solicitation package is released."
The easy-to-use tools within Privia 4.2 minimize data entry and provide a glass pipeline to executives. Privia is delivered with complete Microsoft desktop integration and includes document management, teaming partner connectivity, communication with presence detection, configurable workflow, reporting, and comprehensive search capabilities through an easy to use interface. Privia can support team members from various companies working together in real-time for efficient bid response and task order management. The software and commercial terms are scalable to accommodate licensing options from five to 5,000 users.
