Maximize BidPrime

Relevancy. Get only the bids/RFPs important to you.

We understand that not all businesses are created equal. Even businesses in the same industry can provide quite distinct materials, services, and solutions. Our entire team at BidPrime, your assigned Account Manager, stand ready to ensure your search results are relevant to you and your business.

It is with this understanding, that we designed our robust array of technology tools. You want the bids/RFPs that match your business’s specific needs.

Along with the power of our technology, our clients have discovered that our solutions offer a level of customization unseen elsewhere in our industry. We use custom data matching tools to provide you with only the most relevant opportunities.

As some of you are aware, other bid search engines rely on very generalized and antiquated code systems. As a result of miscoded bids by government employees or internal staff, their customers either miss bids entirely or are forced to sort and dig through long, imprecise lists of irrelevant solicitations.

For additional customization, you have access to, and can utilize, our ‘Advanced Search’ feature. This allows you to ‘Exclude’ any bids that would otherwise clutter your search results.

You can also use the very helpful ‘Create Alert’ tool to setup and be notified, via email, on any new matches, based on your alert(s).

Again, if you have any questions, or aren’t comfortable with using the ‘Advanced Search’ or ‘Create Alert’ tools, your Account Manager will be excited to assist you in setting up the searches, or aid you in better understanding the tools.

We're here to make the government bid process easier for you. For more, call 888.808.5356.
