What has traditionally been a painstaking process in bidding out construction projects can now be done in a snap. We understand the countless hours teams have spent printing and mailing construction bid packages. Not to mention all the time spent answering the same question over the same drawing over and over again. That’s why we designed an interactive 2-way bidding portal for owners and vendors to easily manage the bidding process.
Projectmates construction bid management software provides a fully collaborative 2-way bidding system. Your project team creates bid solicitation requests and publish information to the virtual plan room. Contractors then register to view bids through a separate registration process. This subscribes them to specific bids they’re interested in. Bid subscribers are able to view and download a wide range of bid documents. They’ll automatically receive addendum and other notifications. Subscribers can also participate in the open Q&A area. Finally, bidders can submit bids right in the Bids & Plan Room.
Right from the start, bid package creation is a breeze. Projectmates allows you to create packages directly from the project budget. Attach any drawings, spec sheets, or instructions relevant to each construction project. From the same location, invite pre-qualified bidders or create a link for self-registration.
When it comes time to level your bids, we’ve made it quick and painless. Projectmates comes standard with an automated bid leveler. Our Analysis Grid breaks down each of your vendor bids side-by-side so you can quickly see the front-runners. The system will alert the winner when you’ve awarded the contract. All it takes is one more click and the winning bid values populate into a contract linked to construction financials.
“Projectmates does it ALL for us! When all bids are received, Projectmates presents them in a standardized format that is easy to compare apples to apples. Projectmates also analyzes every bid for me so I can make decisions much faster. Things are so much easier since we started using Projectmates!”
