Excel is a powerful tool and has its place in the construction workflow, but it still falls short. The problem with Excel is that it’s not built specifically for managing bids during the preconstruction process. You have to spend hours manually creating and updating spreadsheets and tracking down files and information. It wastes precious time that could be spent elsewhere.

An online bid board is specifically tailored to the needs of subcontractors as part of the new preconstruction process. With an online bid board, you can manage all of your bids, get insights into performance and hit rate, message general contractors, assign out tasks internally, and have a centralized bid calendar — all in one place.
