Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Currently, we use SmartBid to manage multiple estimating projects. My responsibilities fall more towards an administrative role with some estimating. As a subcontractor, we receive a high volume of invites from multiple contractors. Having access to this program allows multiple estimators to be involved across our different office locations.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

SmartBid is used by our estimators, project managers, and general superintendents. As an estimator, I use SmartBid to view new opportunities and track my current open bids. Our project managers and superintendents use the software to view change orders, punch lists, and other tasks after we've been awarded a project from the general contractor.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

It is being used across the whole organization by all of the estimating departments.

It is a great way to manage bid solicitations. It is very easy to send large amounts of data (in the form of drawings and specs) to a large audience, and then to manage and oversee what that audience does with the data. Are they looking at the drawings? Are they even opening your emails? Etc.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

SmartBidNet is used by my employer to solicit bids from subcontractors. We use it to distribute plans and specs, track accepted/declined to bid and subcontractor ratings. We record notes for every conversation which makes it easy to see what I or another employee discussed with a subcontractor.
