A major manufacturing and services company providing innovative solutions to the U.S. Government has opened seven new facilities since 2004. The company offers manufacturing and integration, test, and logistics for the top 20 U.S. defense contractors that regularly seek the their expertise to fulfill contract requirements.
As an established and successful government contractor, the company knew how to work with the Department of Defense (DoD) and large OEMs. They had routinely submitted cost proposals as a prime and subcontractor, and collaborated with the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA) and Defense Contract Management Agency (DCMA) for audit and inspection purposes. As the company’s rapid growth led to an increase in bid submissions, the pricing team struggled to keep pace.
"Despite having several engineers help us with our pricing efforts, it was challenging to get bids in on time and ensure their accuracy. Excel was holding us back."
The team sought a new system for managing cost data and pricing proposals, and specifically one that could:
- break down pricing for complex, multi-level BOMs
- automatically test pricing accuracy and method
- enable carry-through of price adjustments across entire bids
- enable quick error fixing
- provide rapid reporting for government reviews
In this case study, learn how implementing PROPRICER addressed the contractor's known challenges, and how it helped the team discover and fix issues they weren't even aware they had.
