MasterControl Allies with Winvale Group in Network Federal Sales Channel
SALT LAKE CITY - Aug 6, 2007 - MasterControl Inc. today announced that it has joined forces with The Winvale Group in its Network Federal Government Channel Partnership program. The Winvale Group will be MasterControl’s exclusive Channel Reseller in the government sector on city, state, and federal levels.
“This is an exciting expansion into the government marketplace for MasterControl,” said Michael Bothe, MasterControl vice president of business development. “Our partnership with The Winvale Group utilizes their Network Federal sales channel to support the growing demand for MasterControl’s products in the government sector.”
The MasterControl-Network Federal Channel Reseller relationship will help identify opportunities to implement MasterControl’s document management and GxP process software solutions in a multitude of city, state and federal government settings.
The Network Federal Government Channel Partnership program was established to eliminate the difficulties associated with the formulation, maintenance and reporting requirements necessary for manufacturers holding direct General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule Contracts. The GSA Schedule Program allows commercial GSA-contracted firms to provide services and supplies at stated prices for given periods of time. According to the GSA, the Schedules Program mirrors commercial buying practices more than any other procurement process currently utilized by the government.
