We’ve found TotalBid to be a simple, efficient and cost effective tool. With TotalBid we’re able to review competitive costing utilizing a detailed standardized format, monitor multiple projects across our footprint and create reporting using historical project data that give us the ability to track and compare more granular costs in a project or across a state, region or Nationally
TotalBid is a valuable system for streamlining the bid document distribution process. One of the greatest values it offers to our company is the clear record of what data is released and at what time it is released. This tracking ensures that all bidders have the same information at the same time, thus leveling the playing field in this regard. Drawings, specifications, addenda, requests for information and other vital documents are readily available and it’s easy to check for updates.
Project Managers are able to get the bid packages out much faster which of course allows each of them to handle more and we are experiencing an estimated savings of 5% to 7% on projects with Bid Automation and Multistage Bidding.
The greatest benefit of TotalBid has been the flexibility of the detailed CBS (cost breakdown sheets), Bid & Historical Reporting, & Customer Service. The flexibility has allowed us to use TotalBid regardless of the equipment / services being sourced…Thank you so much! You are my hero..
We have been using Bid Automation and Multistage Bidding, and the system has greatly improved our work flow. The team at TotalBid is constantly enhancing their offering and results are distributed to every project stakeholder minutes after each bid closes. Additionally, we have been using the Lot Bidding product and the benefits have proven to be outstanding. We have realized Lot discounts ranging from 1% to 10%, which falls directly to our client’s bottom line. A user friendly system that provides great tools and enhances financial results – what more could you ask for!
With the level of change order approvals we implement, requiring architect and facility partner review, approve or reject, we were able to reduce the amount of change orders that would have blindly been approved by the AEs and project managers whom did not have an incentive to reject them. We knew we needed to do better so we changed the approval process to add value to the owner, thus we implemented TotalBid’s Change Order Management product. Now that the AEs are added into the CO approval loop in TotalBid, they circumvented many potential change orders by rejecting ones submitted and directing the GC to the plans and specs. As a result, the TotalBid Change Order Management product has helped to reduce our change orders by over 15%.
I just wanted to pass on how well your system has worked out for us. TotalBid has been great for our latest round of Project Audits. We demonstrated the process and your product as a best practice that has helped to insure consistency in the practice of bidding, leveling and awarding. I recommend your product to others in the industry, all the time! Your product has helped our overall transition back to competitive bidding (from negotiated contracts). The savings have far exceeded our expectations. As you have seen, we have expanded the use of TotalBid to more types of projects and now our partners have started using it for procuring AE services.
Thanks sooooo much! You guys have been lifesavers!!
The Multistage Bidding system is highly valuable and very cost effective to our firm.
Thanks for your outstanding customer service!! We have recognized you for your significant contributions. You are a valuable part of our team!!
When it comes to support, the TotalBid staff is always available to assist to answer any questions, or to participate in our staff training sessions. And they are always quick to respond to our request for tailoring the system to meet our process design.
TotalBid is very effective in how it helps us with cost savings and cost avoidance. A typical project prior to the use of TotalBid would be $200k. After using TotalBid tools and features the cost of a similar job comes in at $185k, Allowing a more detailed analysis, bid leveling etc.
Your system is higly vlauable and very cost effective for our firm…I have been very satisfied with the training and support provided by TotalBid staff…The functionality works well for me…Just keep up the good work by keeping the process as flexible as possible as it has been to date.
TotalBid has allowed me to more efficiently analyze my project costs and manage my time for the multitude of projects I support (e.g., automatic notification of bids ready, contractor comparison reports, etc.). It also provides a great platform to capture historical costs per project allowing my client to collaborate with me and analyze their expenditures in a more efficient manner for future projects. From an administrative standpoint it is outstanding!! Long gone are the days of manual inputting into Excel spread sheets.
This was my first time doing on-line bidding. I was apprehensive at first, but now that I have gone through the process I found it to be easy to use and exciting. I like the time keeper for the bid date!
I’m really loving using your site. It makes things so much easier.
I manufacture and install architectural signage for commercial businesses. I found that TotalBid helped us gain control of our project costs with their comprehensive program. I like the web based format that allows us to track jobs from anywhere. I recommend this company to anyone in the construction management field to check this site out.
The TotalBid system ensures that, among many other benefits our firm and our clients have complete transparency and quick access to everyone involved in the bidding process…We report measurable overall cost savings and cost avoidance due to more detailed analysis and bid leveling functionality…TotalBid has given our bid team efficiencies and control never before possible.
