A “one-stop shop” for publicly sourced contracts and open market catalogs, the Periscope Marketplace™ delivers a consumer shopping experience, while maintaining the accountability required for public sector procurement

AUSTIN, TX  - August 26, 2019 – Periscope Holdings is introducing a new shopping experience at NIGP Forum August 25-28 in Austin Texas.  Created exclusively for the public sector, the Periscope Marketplace is the one-stop shop for government buyers to compare publicly sourced contracts and open market catalogs - efficiently and compliantly. 

“We created the Periscope Marketplace with decades of public procurement experience,” said Brian Utley, CEO of Periscope Holdings. “It’s more than another shopping tool, it’s a solution that enables open, transparent and compliant procurement. We worked hard to deliver a consumer shopping experience, while maintaining the accountability required for public sector procurement.  The entire team at Periscope has been a part of this project.  We are extremely proud to be introducing the Periscope Marketplace to state and local organizations at NIGP Forum, furthering our mission to transform public sector procurement.”

The Periscope Marketplace simplifies procurement and drives best value purchasing by empowering public sector buyers to compare services, product specs and pricing side-by-side from a variety of catalog types, including:

  • Owned Contracts
  • Government Cooperative Contracts
  • Publicly Sourced Contracts from 140+ Government Organizations in the Periscope Network
  • Open Market Catalogs

The Periscope Marketplace integrates to any eProcurement, ERP or Financial System. It can be purchased standalone or as part of Periscope Holdings’ eProcurement suite.  Understanding every public sector organization has unique requirements for compliance, the Periscope Marketplace also features powerful administrative tools that allow each customer to define the preferred buyer journey for their organization.  And, to encourage adoption by public sector buyers and suppliers, Periscope Holdings designed the Marketplace to be easy to use for everyone.  In addition to the savvy user interface, the Periscope Marketplace features drag and drop functionality to simplify the process of uploading catalogs.
