Media Release: WBE Canada Announces New Database
[January 23, 2019] Women Business Enterprises Canada Council (WBE Canada) announced the launch of its new Database. After extensive research to find the optimum solution for our WBE and Corporate communities we are pleased to announce that B2Gnow, the system used by WBENC in the US, was the ultimate choice.
Certification is the cornerstone of WBE Canada’s platform and as woman owned businesses look to grow their capacity, build business relationships and close more deals, B2Gnow provides the ability to manage certification, maintain WBE business profiles to facilitate ease of Corporate and WBE searches and access information about Corporate Members.
For Corporate and Government Members, B2Gnow with its comprehensive database of WBEs provides ready access to certified supplies for procurement opportunities. Our corporate and public procurement community has full access to our database of certified WBEs, flexible search options, access to information and resources and on-going training and support.
B2Gnow is a cloud-based solution with strong security features, including hardware and software firewalls and encryption. Software is user-friendly and comes with easy-to-access regular training and system support.
Silvia Pencak, President of WBE Canada said, “The implementation of B2Gnow is a major step forward for both our vendor and corporate communities as we create a database both can readily access for real-time opportunities and is the ultimate platform for WBEs to promote their business to corporate and government organizations who support diversity within their supply chains and gives our member corporations the best resource to seek out potential diverse suppliers. This is a huge win-win for WBE Canada and our community”.
B2Gnow provides software that allows governments of all sizes to streamline and improve the effectiveness of their supplier diversity programs. Their software replaces inefficient paper-based processes that are labor intensive and error prone. B2Gnow products enable reliable, efficient, user-friendly processes which result in data which is more timely, more complete, and more accurate. Less data entry and better quality of data will allow your staff to focus on what matters – creating and managing an effective diversity program.
