Bidhive track changes is here

February 17, 2022

Collaborate on your bids and proposals with others in real time – no more emailing files back and forth.

Fast-track your bid responses without ever having to leave the Bidhive interface.

Bidhive’s simple yet powerful editing tool provides an efficient way of managing multiple files as well as merging sections from different documents into one single source of truth throughout all revisions — say hello to a blissful drafting experience where you can work simultaneously in parallel!

This feature enables bid teams to track of all changes users make to their text, images, tables, styles, formatting, and more.  This includes tracking for newly added and deleted text, as well as various styling and text formatting changes.  This tool is a real time-saver for field sales staff who need to quickly consolidate their input notes; and for bid team members who have the unenviable task of gathering information from time-poor subject-matter experts.

Get more done in half the time

  • Say goodbye email trails – because now there’s just one document in which everyone is working on at any given time
  • Want to work on your content outside of Bidhive?  Stay organized and in control with a centralized location by cloud linking your files
  • Ensure accuracy, consistency and transparency with versioning, roll back and audit trail.

With an easy button on the main text editing panel within the Bid Builder, Bidhive users can easily ‘Enable or Disable Tracking’.

The benefits of a centralised bid system

Connect your sales, bid and estimating team – all in one place. Bid management is a process that brings together internal stakeholders across the business leading up to, and during, a tender. Strategy, bid/proposal solution, risk management and pricing are some of the...

Avoiding price risk and the winner’s curse in competitive bidding

As the true cost of construction and hard/soft infrastructure delivery is not known until the completion of a project, contractor selection and the risk of selecting a winning bidder that has underestimated the cost of the contract is a major concern in procurement. This can lead to the winner’s curse, a term that refers to the difference between the lowest and second lowest bid, and the consequences of the bid price being too low to cover the costs including a reasonable return. In this blog we discuss ways to reduce price risk in bidding.
