What has traditionally been a painstaking process, bidding out construction projects can now be done effortlessly in Projectmates’ construction management software. 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 two-way bidding portal for owners and vendors to easily manage the bidding process.
Projectmates construction project management software provides a fully collaborative construction bidding portal. Your project team creates bid solicitation requests and publishes 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, giving access to view and download bid documents. Once they are ready to submit the bid, they can easily do so in Projectmates. They’ll automatically receive addendums and other notifications, as well as access to participate in the open Q&A area.
Right from the start, bid package creation is a breeze. Projectmates’ construction bidding portal 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 winner will be alerted once you’ve awarded the contract. All it takes is one more click and the winning bid values populate into a contract linked to your construction financials.
