Invitation to Bid
GradeBeam® simplifies and expedites the massive information exchange that occurs in the pre-construction phases of projects, including invitations-to-bid (ITBs), drawing/specification distribution, corrections, addenda, requests for information and responses. By leveraging the newest information and communication technologies, GradeBeam enables construction firms to make their business processes more cost effective.
General contractors use GradeBeam to post project information, search for subcontractors and suppliers, send bid invitations, distribute project documents through local printing firms, track bid responses and issue project change information.
Subcontractors and suppliers use GradeBeam to control and update their company's contact information in one central database, find out about public construction opportunities, receive bid invitations via email and/or fax, review project information and respond to private bid invitations.
