Hicksville, NY – July 2020 – Accelerated Information Systems – the 2019 Laserfiche Cloud Solution Provider of the Year – announced it has been selected as a vendor for the Educational Services Commission of New Jersey (ESCNJ) cooperative pricing system which includes an extensive network of over 1,300 school districts and municipalities across New Jersey. Since 1977 ESCNJ has grown to become the largest cooperative pricing system in New Jersey with the goal of saving taxpayer money while freeing up time previously spent developing bids. ESCNJ is New Jersey’s only member of the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies (AEPA), a nation-wide purchasing association of 29 states, providing additional buying power to ESCNJ members.
“We’re very excited to have been awarded vendor status with the ESCNJ cooperative pricing system. Our document management and electronic forms solution for existing member, Bergen Community College, helped them transform campus operations and reimagine the student experience. We look forward to bringing our solution to other members so they can streamline their own processes and focus on their core mission.”
President of Accelerated Information Systems
As a vendor, member organizations can purchase from Accelerated without developing bid specifications, advertising, or researching – ESCNJ develops bid specifications and advertises for the best vendor in their extensive vendor network. Through this state-wide network, ESCNJ members can leverage their collective buying power to get the best deals from their exclusive vendor partnerships, saving citizens of New Jersey otherwise wasted tax dollars each year.
