NAPC Seeks Mo­bile Up­date App Beta Testers

Trillions - - In This Issue -

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
