About Us

Founded in 2001, ContractPower LLC, was a true evolutionary in the world of commercial construction. Determined to fix a broken bid process, our founder relied on his experience as a construction cost estimator, general contractor and US Veteran. First, he assembled a team to build a bid management prototype. Next, he lead the development of a prototype that was vigorously tested by a well known chain-store owner. In turn, the ContractPower team secured funding and launched CPBID Technologies. Since then, CPBID has become an industry leader and creator of the popular TotalBid construction spend management system.

TotalBid is recognized as an industry standard and best practice by many project owners and contractors. Well known program managers, including Jones Lang LaSalle and CB Richard Ellis, also use TotalBid to support their development goals and the goals of their clients.

TotalBid was the first web-based construction bidding software commercially available, and it remains as the only end-to-end system for sourcing construction projects. TotalBid embraces nuances in the construction industry not addressed by sourcing systems: Oracle, SAP, Ariba, Emptoris, Coupa,Expesite, Accruent, Evoco,  and others. Characteristics that differentiate TotalBid from these sourcing and PM systems as well as what makes TotalBid the best bid management solution are founded by two important cornerstones: end-to-end workflow automation coupled with robust communications and document management. What this means is the entire construction bid process-flow is conjoined with document distribution, RFI notifications, stakeholder and bid leveling collaboration, all available when using TotalBid. As to the uniqueness of TotalBid, the system has also been recognized by the Federal Government, granting a patent for the unique and widespread Multistage Bidding system.

The software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology behind TotalBid  is hosted on secure servers in the United States, and the TotalBid operations and support teams are also based in the US. TotalBid staff provides support to clients throughout North America and beyond, from our offices in sunny south Florida
