Overall Satisfaction with SmartBidNet

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.
  • Tracking accepted/declined subcontractors.
  • Easily distribute bid documents to subcontractors.
  • Take and track notes for conversations with subcontractors during the bidding process.
  • Track notes on company performance and past bidding record.
  • We have seen intermittent problems with notes disappearing.
  • Ability to have more than one project bidding open at the same time/on multiple windows.
  • Mobile apps.
  • Simplified and made bidding process faster with mass communication to invited subcontractors' capability
  • Ability for subcontractors to respond via the program negating the need for employees to call them in some instances
  • BidMail
  • Better ability for subcontractors to respond via program.
  • Simpler interface.
  • Easier note tracking.
It's a great tool for bidding but that is all. There is no project management integration so you need a separate program.
