You have full control over the projects you list in your planroom. There are two options for listing your projects, Publicly and Privately. Listing a project publicly will give your project more exposure, and makes it easy for your subcontractors and suppliers to access your project. Listing your project privately allows you to securely hide your project from the network and only let those you invite to access the project.
General Contractors have unlimited plan storage for every project. Upload and manage your plans with your bid projects in our easy to use plan room. Our online plan rooms for construction support quick viewing, uploading, downloading and versioning of your documents. The BidPlanroom solution is fully integrated with Citrix® ShareFile technology, one of the nation's leading file share companies, safely securing your project documents.
Sending company branded ITBs is quick and easy when it's time to invite your subcontractors to your project. There are multiple options for creating a project invitation list. You can import past project lists (or specific trades or groups from past project lists), or choose from your subcontractors using filtering by trades, groups, locations, proximity and more. Our intuitive workflow allows for bounced email addresses to quickly be updated and invitations to bid re-issued. Your ITBs include interactive bid intention buttons, project information, instructions to bidders and any other custom information you include.
Your project bid list (also known as the "BidTracker") is an extremely helpful and powerful tool that allows the General Contractor to organize their project's bidders, statistics and notes. In one screen you can view and track your bidders, non-bidders, received bids and more. You can track if and when your invitees have viewed plans and declared bid intentions. You may also enter notes and manually mark bid intentions for the unresponsive subcontractors of the project.
Quickly announce project updates and changes with our correspondence notification tools. Keep your subcontractors up to date on addenda, bid date changes and other notifications on a project level. You have the ability to send correspondence to everyone on your project list, or send only to specific trades or groups in your project. In addition, users that declare "Not Bidding" will automatically be excluded from any further notifications for that project.
Qualify your bidders with our powerful prequal tools. Projects differ in scope and qualification requirements. Our custom form builder allows you to create reusable questions and select the ones needed on a project level. Approve, deny and rate submissions. Easily access recent and historical bidder submissions from other projects. Your subcontractors can even access and copy their historical answers providing a hassle-free experience.
BidPlanroom is a centralized place to manage your subcontractors giving all your employees access anytime. Our software provides intuitive tools and processes that will give your company the most organized subcontractor list it's ever had. You control your subcontractor data and is private to your company. Categorize your subs in custom trades and groups. Enjoy complete control to update, add or remove contacts as needed.
With unlimited employee users, BidPlanroom gives your company the ability to grow without being bothered by more cost everytime a new employee is added. Many GC employees have different responsibilities during the bid process and that's why BidPlanroom lets you set different permissions for each user. From uploading and deleting files to creating projects and sending invitations to bid, each employee will have the control needed to achieve efficient and successful bids.
CSI codes are time consuming to manage... Whether your company uses the original 16 divisions, the new expanded divisions, or your own custom trade categories, BidPlanroom lets you organize your subcontractors and projects the way you're used to. You can transition to BidPlanroom with ease by maintaining the organization that's already familiar to your company.
Our centralized support team is always available to assist the General Contractor and their subcontractors. Even though BidPlanroom is extremely easy to use, you will have the confidence knowing we're here to answer any questions and assist in any way.
