3rd Eye is excited to be awarded a part of Heil’s Sourcewell contract. Sourcewell – where more than 50,000 government, education, and nonprofit organizations pool their collective purchasing power to reduce the costs associated with purchasing goods and. Now, municipalities that need vehicle-mounted safety cameras, collision avoidance radar or fleet management SaaS solutions can obtain them without the lengthy and frustrating RFQ/bid process.
“Traditionally, participating in municipal bids often meant that municipal fleets wouldn’t get the products they needed – but instead were forced to use inferior products that came in with the lowest bid,” said Darrick Reed, president of 3rd Eye. “In many cases, the bid process left everyone frustrated and fleet safety requirements were largely unmet.”
But with 3rd Eye’s Sourcewell contract award, the full array of MobileVision® cameras and monitors, doppler radar, and 3rd Eye Digital SaaS solutions are now available.
“The requirements for vehicle-mounted safety solutions continues to grow – along with hardware and software that increases productivity by allowing for better fleet asset management. 3rd Eye products give fleet directors a holistic view of their vehicles, where they are, how they’re performing mechanically – and video-based real-time views of what their drivers see,” said Reed, adding, “This is invaluable for post-accident fault mitigation – as well as positive service verification.”
“Sourcewell’s cooperative purchasing is ‘Procurement conducted by, or on behalf of, one or more Public Procurement Units’ as defined by the American Bar Association Model Procurement Code for State and Local Governments,” said Sourcewell Contract Administration Supervisor, Andy Campbell.
Sourcewell’s process streamlines the procurement process for its members by developing RFPs and IFBs for national, competitive solicitations that meet or exceed local requirements. Our rigorous process is continually refined to best meet member needs and allows us to offer you exceptional products and services from nationally acclaimed vendors.
