Construction Bid Management Software
Integrated bid management for commerical, residential and public works construction
Owners, general contractors, homebuilders, construction managers, architects and engineers managing pre-construction activities for commercial and residential construction are frequently burdened with inefficient and disconnected processes for contractor pre-qualification, bid invitation, bid document distribution, and bid response tracking.
The result is added risk by not having current information on contractor qualifications and unnecessary expense and labor involved in managing pre-construction communications with contractors. The ability to efficiently and successfully bid projects can become a limiting factor in competing for new business.
