An Overview of Bid Planner for Subcontractors

Climbing up the stairs

Whether you’re tracking ten bids or a hundred, knowing where each one stands can be complicated. In today’s fast-moving world, using spreadsheets and file folders just doesn’t cut it. When are upcoming deadlines for invitations to bid (ITBs)? Which bids have you submitted and are waiting for an answer? How many new projects have you won? Now, subcontractors can know instantly!

Start digging deeper too. Under each status category, you can see a line by line list of each job. Each project line shows the status, the team member assigned to the bid, the date the bid is due, and the job location. PlanHub created Bid Planner for subcontractors to make it easy to track all outstanding ITBs, current bids, and projects won, and more — all in a single place.

Subcontractors can highlight a project line and a summary of the project appears including a short description, matching trades, start and end dates, project value, and more. Each job is tagged with the source of the job, for instance: those that originated in PlanHub, imported projects, projects that PlanHub suggested as a match, and other tags. From here, you can click to go directly to the project planroom to get documentation, contact the general contractor with questions, and a host of other convenient features.

Bid Planner makes tracking all projects at any stage of the bidding process simple. No more clunky spreadsheets and folders — or information that you have to spend valuable time looking for. It’s organized, it’s all there, and it’s one more way PlanHub Premier is making it faster and easier to find, bid and win business.
