What is BasisBoard?

BasisBoard is a bid management software that helps businesses build an online bid board and track bid invitations on a centralized platform. Our bid board connects to your inbox, recognizes bid invite emails, and pulls the data into a dashboard instantly (deadlines, bidders, addendas) with zero data entry.

I love how organized it is. I love that you can customize your view and filter it making it easier to see who is bidding on a specific project.

My only gripe is that the login is not very efficient, but that is a minor nuisance.

BasisBoard is a valuable multi-tool for our Estimating Process

Reviewed 7 months ago
Pros

I am getting far less bid invitation emails in my Inbox thanks to BasisBoard. Emails are compiled and presented in a way that is very organized and easy to manage. The fact that it is pulling bid invites from my Inbox as well as from others on my team is helping to ensure that no potential opportunities are missed. BasisBoard is a great tool for our Estimating team to track projects throughout the estimating process while providing valuable analytics along the way.

Cons

We have experienced some difficulty when attempting to merge projects and use the revision button to update bid packages or pricing. It seems a bit cumbersome and doesn't always update the way we expect it to. However, any support we have asked for has been great. When we ask for help solving this problem, I am positive that they will work to explain and/or fix any issues we have.

We Love BasisBoard!

Reviewed 3 months ago

Eliminated overhead, and gained efficiency with timeframe between receiving ITB's and estimators & account managers getting them on their "radar," previously it would take anywhere from 3-5 business days between receiving ITB and someone laying eyes on plans and specs, with BasisBoard that's decreased to one day, two at the most typically.

Pros

As a Specialties subcontractor in a very busy market, we typically receive well over 100 emails every day pertaining to ITB's, with many in duplicate/triplicate (or more). Typically these boil down to anywhere from 10-25 actual ITB's received every day, the majority of which we say "no" to after reviewing. Before BasisBoard, we had a person whose only role was to manually plug all ITB data into our...

Cons

As someone who uses Bluebeam Revu daily, i find the navigation of plans in BasisBoard to still be somewhat tedious in comparison, but has improved since the initial release thanks to some improvements by the developers since initial implementation. A few minor additions to zoom in/out capabilities would go a long way.

Excellent solution to our Estimating tracking needs.

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

The software is excellent at keeping track of all of our bid requests and our proposals. Previously we used Excel, but this is so much more helpful and far easier. We really like the automated features, the reporting, filtering options, etc.

Cons

I can't say there are any negatives. Any time we had an issue or question, Customer Service was very prompt and quickly addressed it.
