Watchfire Awarded BuyBoard Purchasing Cooperative Contract

Jan. 26, 2023

DANVILLE, Ill. — (January 10, 2023) — Watchfire, a leading provider of exterior and interior LED signs and scoreboards, has been awarded a national purchasing contract for Parks and Recreation Equipment, Products, and Installation Services from BuyBoard National Purchasing Cooperative. 

BuyBoard is a free purchasing cooperative that serves municipalities, counties, school districts, and government entities. Because BuyBoard has already vetted vendors and completed the competitive procurement process, members save time and resources that would have been spent preparing and conducting a formal RFP. 

The agreement allows Watchfire to provide BuyBoard members a range of indoor and outdoor digital displays, including video scoreboards, center-hung displays, scorer’s tables and entrance signs. 

“BuyBoard simplifies a complicated purchasing process, which saves its members time while also ensuring they comply with state and local procurement requirements,” said Wes Wood, senior scoreboard & display specialist at Watchfire. “Cities and tourism bureaus are discovering the economic benefits that come from building a new sports complex, modernizing an outdated ballpark, or adding digital signage to a rec center. Through this purchasing agreement, local governments can break ground faster and start hosting events sooner.”
