Invite Bidders

Sometimes, the most difficult task in purchasing is determining which of your vendors are qualified to bid on a procurement record. PMWeb provides several powerful tools and techniques to make inviting bidders easier and more efficient.

Collect bids

The Online Bid record is where the bidder can do their data entry in a secure web environment.

If you are using the PMWeb Visual Workflow, as Online Bids are submitted, bid managers can be notified automatically by email.

Manage Bids

Use unlimited bid revisions to track design changes, alternates, and options.

Monitor and control the revision history of your bidding process. Create an unlimited number of bid revisions per Procurement and issue revisions bidder by bidder or in groups.

Analyze Bids

Tools in both the Procurement record and the Online Bids let you analyze each bid on its own merits as well as side by side with each of its competitors.

Award Bids

Awarded bids automatically issue as commitments in Cost Management, where you can generate contract documents, manage change orders, and collect and pay invoices. Best of all, PMWeb allows you to accomplish this without duplicate data entry and with a complete audit trail.
