How Dataforma Will Put You Ahead of Your Competition
Dataforma software will streamline long-term maintenance projects for any business in the field service management industry — from roofing professionals to restoration contractors, HVAC technicians, electricians, plumbers and more. Dataforma capabilities include powerful bid tracking software to help you request and manage bid proposals across all long-term maintenance and construction projects.
Bid management is a particularly time-consuming process when handled manually. Each project requires you to prequalify and invite subcontractors, as well as provide each invited bidder with the specifications, plans and other information needed for their proposal. Your sales staff will also need to send quotes and proposals to multiple customers.
Don’t let tight deadlines and complex documents lose you business deals. Get ahead of the competition by automating many of these tasks with a bid tracking system instead. Keep track of multiple bids for multiple projects and win more business with a fast and efficient turnaround time.
Automation with Dataforma can bring many benefits to the bidding process:
- Save time with automated task notifications: Bid tracking software helps you automate quotes to speed up the bidding process. The time and effort previously spent generating estimates can be allocated elsewhere for maximum efficiency.
- Introduce consistency across projects: Have greater control over your documents with every contribution from third parties entered directly into the same system. Your sales team can review and manage the entire bidding process in one place.
- Secure all documentation: Most bid tracking software includes security features to let you restrict what each third-party contributor can see and do in the system. Ensure your staff, subcontractors and customers only have access to the project data they need.
- Locate and access documents quickly: Keep all your bids organized without needing to switch between multiple systems. Your estimators, subcontractors, customers and other contributors can quickly access all necessary documents from a central location.
- Utilize version control for all documents: Ensure all contributors are working with the most up-to-date version of a given document, even when several people use it simultaneously. Version control allows for real-time collaboration when editing documents.
- Enhance remote working: Dataforma is a cloud-based system, meaning you and your sales staff can access project data from anywhere with an internet connection. Remote access will improve communications for more effective team and international collaboration.
Dataforma bid tracking allows general contractors to track all bids, bid outcomes, project details and sales staff contributions. Use customized forms to prequalify subcontractors, automate quotes and win more business with bid tracking software.
