Caterpillar updates with simplified navigation, enhanced resources

Gov Bid Spec

Caterpillar has updated to provide faster and easier access to information for governmental buyers.

To make navigation easier, Caterpillar simplified the navigation menu with boxes that take visitors directly to information about Cat products, bid specifications, procurement tools, dealer support and more.

The company also enhanced the site’s resources by including educational materials and Life Cycle Costing content, plus information about saving time, controlling costs and reducing risk with cooperative purchasing contracts.

Other features include up-to-date resources such as white papers, articles and case studies. Later in 2013, the site will include a digital RFP builder that allows governmental buyers to request total cost information from bidders.

A newsletter is also available. Users can sign up to receive emailed news about their industries.
