Appian Corp. has updated procurement request module application on the company’s work platform offering that the General Services Administration uses to perform enterprise-wide acquisition processes.

GSA’s Public Building Service deployed the Electronic Acquisition System Integrated to process requests, solicitations, contracts and close-out functions, Appian said Monday.

“The PRM solution is the latest example of GSA PBS’ commitment to driving innovation in how IT can support the agency’s mission,” said Matt Calkins, president and CEO at Appian.

“As the latest in the GSA’s list of Appian deployments, it is also a testament to the value of unifying multiple applications, data sources and user groups under a common interface,” added Calkins.

PBS users work to request, review and approve goods and services purchases through a social interface of the application, Appian says.

Appian partner Incentive Technology Group developed the procurement request module application.

PRM also works to integrate with GSA Federal Acquisition Service’s Appian-based Acquisition Planning Wizard and deploy the services through cloud environments, desktop computers and mobile devices.
