BigVar Connection Partnership


Technology Concepts Group Intl (TCGi) and Connection Enterprise Solutions provide a global strategic alliance that drives added value to all medium to large corporations.

Connection Enterprise Solutions is pleased to announce our Strategic Alliance with Technology Concepts Group International (TCGi), a certified M/WBE. TCGi/Connection Enterprise Solutions can help drive and deliver a strategic solution providing a streamlined acquisition and asset management process leading to reduced procurement costs (regardless of manufacturer) and a Tier 1 diverse spend.

Together we can simplify procurement by coordinating activities backed by the TCGi/Connection Enterprise Solutions support structure. We offer a comprehensive solution for your evolving procurement needs. Moreover, our one portal/one process solution is backed by robust reporting and integration capabilities to manage a multiple OEM environment. Unlike traditional VARs, we provide open accessibility to the entire aggregate supply chain, rather than price averaging. Our system is second to none in providing a one-stop solution for all your needs.

In addition, our team (TCGi/Connection Enterprise Solutions) will help provide an unparalleled solution for improving product procurement processes as a complete procure-to-pay strategy. TCGi is an expert in spend and procurement management solutions and drives value through its Managed Procurement and Tail Spend Management Solutions.

Procurement is not about simply providing aggressive pricing and an attractive catalog – it is about understanding our clients’ business requirements, identifying current procurement process flows and how we can improve it, and then working in a concerted partnership to deliver quantifiable and sustainable value. Our unique ITSM integration with ServiceNOW via API’s is an example of this.
