Description

Today on The DooDoo Diva's Smells Like Money Podcast, Chad Smeltzer opens the discussion on the most common problems in government procurement. In the age of digitalization, there's so much that technology can do in the procurement systems of business entities. But at the same time, so much of that potential isn't utilized. As the founder and CEO of Bidcurement, Chad talks about the archaic procurement systems that need upgrading and how Bidcurement works to digitize specification documents and streamline every phase of any procurement process.


This episode covers:


· Where did Bidcurement come from?


· How we approach procurement is so archaic


· What can a digital procurement system do?


· An AI system in replacement of commodity codes


· Search optimization for minority businesses in the procurement process


About Chad Smeltzer:


Chad's career began in Wastewater/Public Works at the age of 15 in Wrightsville, PA. After graduating from high school, he entered directly into the workforce. During that time, he maintained several titles such as Senior Technician, Operations Manager, and Account Manager.


Chad created his first start-up company, EPS Products, in 2008, where he used biological technology, called Bioremediation, to break down fats, oils, and grease in sewer systems. EPS Products was later acquired by Duke's Root Control, at which point Chad began a career as a Consultant and a Contractor. He began working with governments all across the Midwest.


In 2016, Chad co-founded a second start-up. Together with a team called Midwest Water Group DBA RMS Utility Services, he utilized new technology to help prioritize collection systems and built a digital asset management software platform. RMS Utilities was acquired by Duke's Root Control in 2020.


Chad's vast knowledge, work history, and experience in the industry led him to his current passion: fixing the local antiquated procurement processes of local and state government with software. He has created multiple digital projects in order to streamline procurement.
