We understand how time, cost and resource intensive tendering can be for our customers. This is often exacerbated when the responsibility for developing tenders falls to a non-specialist that hasn’t the time to fit this in amongst their other responsibilities. This can result in inefficient use of resources, substandard tenders, and lower win rates. Even for organisations that have bid writing specialists, they may require additional capacity without wanting to go through frequent recruitment processes and see the additional resilience, business continuity and quality our team can offer.
We would appoint a specific bid writer (or bid writing team, depending on your needs) to you, working on a retainer basis, for a fixed monthly fee. We would ensure that you’re working with the same bid writer/team at all times; allowing them to understand your business in depth and reflect this in the quality of tender submissions, and also aiding the development and maintenance of excellent communication and relations.
This option also allows our team to comprehensively review your tendering performance and develop a strategic plan to help you improve and win more business.
We can would work with you to determine your current position and exact requirements, including: how many tenders per month/quarter/year you currently submit; how long do you currently spend developing each tender; what is your current win rate; are you targeting the most appropriate opportunities for you; are there any other areas you need to improve on (e.g., supporting documentation – policies and procedures, accreditations, references etc.); what feedback have you received regarding your previous tender submissions; and how you compare with competitors.
In summary, we become one of your team, without the hassle. Providing you with the highest quality tender writing and bid management expertise that is reflected in your win rate.
