MAULDIN, S.C., Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Gordian Group, the nation's leading Job Order Contracting company, recently acquired its newest website address, JOC.co in order to expand the ways in which its clients can access online tools.
The acquisition of JOC.co is The Gordian Group's latest move to solidify its brand's presence online in the construction procurement market. The JOC.co URL is the third acquisition in 2011. It was preceded by JobOrderContracting.com and TheGordianGroup.com.
Internet domain names featuring three letters followed by .co, like JOC.co, are quickly becoming the preferred designation for corporate websites.
"Three-letter domain names add incredible value for their online experience in part because they are easier to remember," said Robert Coffey, President and CEO. "As the leading provider of web-based construction procurement solutions like Job Order Contracting and ezIQC®, The Gordian Group always looks for ways to enhance our clients' experience."
The Gordian Group has developed and implemented Job Order Contracting programs for facility owners in the United States and Canada for more than 21 years.
The Gordian Group's Job Order Contracting system is a competitively solicited construction procurement system. It enables facility owners to complete large numbers of repair, alteration, maintenance and construction projects for less money and time than traditional procurement methods. Unlike traditional bidding, where each project is identified, designed or engineered and then put out to bid, Job Order Contracting speeds the process by establishing all prices prior to work requirements being identified.
In addition to being a very expeditious way to procure work, the pre-established pricing of construction tasks and products with ezIQC allows many individual projects to be priced separately and prioritized to align with funding allocations. In this age of deferred maintenance due to shrinking government budgets and infrequent influxes of federal or state government grants, such flexibility is vital.
The Gordian Group's ezIQC team works closely with each agency leader to create a detailed scope of work for each project, review the contractor's price proposal and walk the agency through the entire procurement process. The agency reviews the proposal package to determine if it is within budget and schedule. There is no obligation to use a contractor until a price proposal is approved and purchase order issued to the contractor.
