NAPC Seeks Mobile Update App Beta Testers
While most NAPC and Bid Ocean members access our data through desktop computers, about 14% of users use mobile devices to access NAPC portals. Because some of our data is very time sensitive we have been working on an app to deliver critical data in real-time to Android mobile devices.
Our lead programmer, Ria River, has completed the primary coding for the new NAPC/BID Ocean Mobile Update App and it is now ready for beta testing.
The sophisticated new app provides real-time updates on mobile Android devices based on user preferences.
The app provides data selected by:
• solicitation report
• work type category
• scope keywords
• geography (country, state, county)
• type of data (solicitation, addenda, bid tabulation,
or other update)
Because our database is updated 24/7, the App can be configured by users to deliver data only when desired and not at 4 AM on Sunday.
You can also save an update as new if you are too busy to look at it when it is first available.
In the not-too-distant future the app will also feature an optional system for subcontractors and vendors to send prime contractors their quotes.
And we will have a reminder feature so you don't forget important events such as pre-bid meetings and bid dates.
If the demand is sufficient we will also make the app available for iphones but do not plan to support phones running Windows.
Beta Testers will need to be registered NAPC members at the Gold level or higher and will be rewarded with free usage of the app for a full year.
If you qualify and are interested in being a Beta Tester for the new app please contact us using the contact form at www.napc.pro.
