Here’s how using Tenders Direct can help you

Tenders Direct do all the leg-work, so you don’t have to. They manually source, review and publish every notice on the Tenders Direct site. CPV codes can have very broad references, making finding suitable tenders incredibly difficult. Instead, Tenders Direct reviewers publish notices using unique keyword categories – making searches easier and more accurate.

Connecting you to the tenders most relevant to your business

Tenders Direct take the time to get to know and understand your business. Your account manager works with you to identify what your business does and identifies the opportunities you could and would like to bid for. We create your unique business profile to ensure you get alerted to the most relevant notices for your business.

Tenders Direct source low value and OJEU notices from over 500 portals, so you can focus on preparing submissions.

Tenders Direct can let you know when contracts are due for renewal. The Advance Tender Alerts forecasts potential contract renewals up to six months before a tender notice is published. Use the extra time to engage with buyers ahead of your competition, or even begin co-ordinating joint bids with other suppliers.

Work efficiently with Opportunity Manager

Tenders Direct’s bid management tool is available as standard. Add a tender you are interested in to your bid pipeline with the click of a button. Add progress updates directly to notices, and send communications regarding bidding activities to your colleagues, keeping communications recorded in one place. Track key dates easily through your dashboard and ensure your bids are on track to meet their submission deadlines.

Develop the skills required for bid submissions

Once you’ve identified which tenders to go for, you need to be able to write a winning bid. Tenders Direct run regular CPD accredited training courses which will help develop your knowledge and give you practical skills to take forward. A range of free webinars and access to Tenders Direct’s range of helpful resources allow you to learn in your own time.

So, you’ve written the bid, but small changes can have a big impact.

Tenders Direct consultants can review documents before you submit and recommend changes to maximise your chance of success. If you are struggling with time or resources, our consultants can work with you to write your bids or even manage the bid process – helping ensure the right areas of focus and on-time completion.
