PRLog - April 3, 2012 - RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif. -- In recent months, IT value-added resellers (VARs) focused on the government Information Technology Enterprise Solutions (ITES) marketplace have found that an increasing number of government bid requests and RFP’s have specified that the acquisition of IT products must be made available via the use of online catalogs. This makes having an electronic ordering system a de-facto requirement for winning the business. For IT resellers without an existing e-commerce system capable of meeting the government agency’s specific requirements, responding to such bid requests can be a futile effort.
