Israeli Startup Offers Cost-Effective, Scalable Procurement System Using Cloud Services
Startup company eVision Systems was founded by experts in electronic government and procurement who recognized the vast potential market for an efficient tenders (procurement and bidding) system. To minimize the IT infrastructure investment required for eVision to develop the system and for customers to evaluate and use it, the company adopted a cloud-based pay-per-use model built on the Windows Azure platform. By taking this approach, eVision was able to create and deliver its eTender solution to market in just a few months. The high scalability and enterprise-class reliability of Windows Azure makes eTender suitable for even the largest government and private organizations, which means that eVision can grow to serve a global market of hundreds of thousands of customers.
