BCI TenderManager: Builders

TenderManager for Builders is a dual system that combines project leads with tender management on one centralised platform. Head Contractors are able to find new, verified projects to tender on while also manage existing tenders with the ability to send RFQ’s to their own subcontractor network as well as the entire BCI subcontractor network.

Designed to help maximise success, use TenderManager to increase your tender opportunities, streamline your RFQ process and expand your subcontractor network for improved pricing.


Project Leads

With two decades worth of experience in researching and gathering project information, BCI offers Builders the advantage of finding out about new jobs well in advance of the project being awarded, often before Registrations of Interest even go out. This early stage information allows BCI Builder members to get ahead of the competition and secure contracts through stronger relationships and repeat work.

BCI’s intuitive project tracking also means Builders are able to search by specific project requirements, save these searches and receive notification emails whenever a project matching the saved search criteria is added or updated.

The email notifications can include alerts for:

  • Development Approval
  • Existing client activity
  • Progress of project
  • Awarded subcontractor

Non-Tender Projects

With an increasingly competitive construction industry, the ability to identify non-tender projects is crucial to stay one step ahead of your competitors. BCI’s timely updates and early reported stages (Concept & Design) combined with the accuracy of contact details (including Owners and Developers) enables you to get in touch with the decision maker before your competition does and reduce the need for tender.

BCI also enables to you to explore your competitors landscape by showing tender win/loss records from your largest competitor, giving you the strategic advantage on your next venture.

The BCI system is comprehensive and is easy to use. When we do need clarification on a potential lead, we have found BCI researchers to be appropriately responsive and answer our queries precisely and with a minimum of fuss. Our only regret is that we did not adopt the CRM capabilities of the BCI system. The BCI system has proven to be even more valuable to our operations. Being a start-up company, it is important that our resources are allocated and used efficiently at all times. By using BCI, our estimators have been able to effectively request and compile accurate subcontractor and supplier quotations to produce a competitive tender on every occasion.
