Return on Investment

  • It has reduced the amount of time that an estimator must spend with document control. With the ease of uploading documents and managing who sees these documents, it takes a big load off of the every day estimator.
  • With the ability to reach your audience by sending several notifications and making sure that these notifications are acknowledged, it reduces the amount of time an estimator must spend on the phone to simply find out if a subcontractor is bidding or not.
  • It has also had a positive impact because it makes it easy for the subcontractors to get the documents. The amount of time just helping a sub get the documents downloaded has decreased and I believe it's because of the ease of use which SmartBidNet has created from the subcontractor side.
