4 Ways CORE and Sourcewell Ease the Buying Process for Government Technology

April 10, 2024

For more than 30 years, CORE has prioritized the government agency experience for payment processing and the citizen experience. As part of that mission, CORE seeks out partnerships that help ease the government agency purchasing process. Sourcewell—a self-sustaining government service cooperative—is one of those partners. 

CORE works closely with Sourcewell because we share the same vision. Sourcewell’s motto is simple, but powerful—To help government, education, and nonprofits work more efficiently. At CORE, we believe in the power best-in-class software can bring to efficiency and the customer and employee work experience. 

CORE’s partnership with Sourcewell brings CORE customers competitive pricing and access to CORE’s payment processing platform (including merchant services, automated bank reconciliation, and more). U.S.-based local government agencies can easily engage with Sourcewell to expedite the purchase of CORE software solutions, eliminating the need for time-consuming RFPs. 

CORE is a Sourcewell Awarded Contract and a proud solution partner with Sourcewell for our Fee Management and Online Payment Portal products.
