Barnstable County, the regional government for Cape Cod, Massachusetts, is made up of 15 towns that take a cooperative approach to deliver services that benefit each community and the entire region. With RFPs for a variety of commodities and services, from road materials to schools supplies to economic development consulting, the County’s manual, paper-based processes and one-person team struggled to keep up with demand. By digitizing procurement with Bonfire, Barnstable instantly expanded their procurement capacity. They’re already helping the towns deliver more cost-effective, on-budget solutions and realize a vision of greater collaboration through eProcurement.
