This year has been a big one for Bid Board Pro.
BuildingConnected was acquired by Autodesk, we released a ton of new features, and our subcontractors received more bid invites than ever before on our network. Here’s some of what went down in 2019, plus a sneak peek of what’s coming next for Bid Board Pro.

We joined Autodesk Construction Cloud
