PROCUREMENT NEWS Why use a bid management tool?


Procurement strategy can vary from organisation to organisation, but one thing all suppliers should have in common when bidding for contracts is a bid management tool.

There are many benefits to using business intelligence tools – learn more about why you should use a bid management tool.



A bid management tool should offer your business a safe and secure multi-site space which offers multi-user access.

Collaboration is key for many businesses when it comes to finding and winning public sector contracts and with many users working on the same procurement project, it is vital that everyone involved can easily track and manage all tender opportunities, bids, and projects.

Other than collaboration, benefits of a bid management tool include:

  • No more lost paperwork – everything stored electronically
  • Save money on storage
  • Your team can invite non-licence holders to collaborate on bids
  • Complete audit trail of the procurement process
  • The tool allows you to continuously monitor bid status – several bids can be managed at the same time
  • Secure access, ISO27001 certified
