PCI Geomatics® Facilitates US Federal Government Purchasing Through GSA Program
Richmond Hill, Ontario - January 15, 2003: The General Services Administration (GSA) has added PCI Geomatics to its list of products and services approved for "GSA Advantage!" purchasing, the Federal Government's premier online shopping site. With millions of products and services, GSA Advantage! provides a one-stop-shopping source to meet procurement needs. The addition of PCI Geomatics provides Federal employees in the United States with fast and affordable access to the company's selection of geospatial software solutions for remote sensing, GIS, photogrammetry, and map production.
"Federal government sales are growing in influence, we are happy to say," notes Arnold Hougham, Vice-President of Sales and Product Marketing for PCI Geomatics. "Improving this distribution channel provides Federal customers with immediate access to our leading earth observation-based geomatics software at a discount. We are pleased to be assisting Federal employees in this way."
US Federal customers can order PCI Geomatics software using the GSA price list at discounted rates. This greatly simplifies the ordering and approval process, passing the purchase savings on to the Federal government and - ultimately - the purchasing department's yearly budget.
The General Services Administration (GSA) was established on July 1, 1949, as a result of a Presidential Commission. The goals of the GSA are to avoid "senseless duplication, excess cost, and confusion in handling supplies," as well as to provide space for the Government to do its work. To fully support Federal employees, GSA provides everything from workplaces, security, and supplies to telecommunications, travel services, fleet and personal property management, and child care centers.
