100% success - 2/7 - Thornton & Lowe

Completing bids

posted: February 4th, 2014

Our team of expert bid writers had a busy January – completing over 20 bids! There was quite an eclectic mix of bids for the team involving existing clients, new clients and very last minute requests.

We will always encourage clients (new and existing) to get bids to us as soon as possible to allow for sufficient time to be dedicated to each bid. The more time we have on a bid, the better it will be as we have more time to collate and consider information and to really evaluate what additional strength we can add.

As we move in to February, we predict another very productive month!

Groundwork maintenance ITT success

posted: January 21st, 2014

One of our SMEs has had another successful ITT thanks to the input and advice from our expert bid writing team. This is the third ITT we have developed for them and the third success! It’s fantastic for the client as previously they had encountered challenges with the whole tender process. It is equally excellent for us, as it demonstrates that our expert bid management process really works!

Facilities Management ITT success

Our team of expert bid writers have helped one of our facilities management companies secure a massive and highly lucrative contract with one of the largest express delivery companies in the UK.

Using our proven bid management expertise, we worked with the client, who are relatively new to this particular sector, to develop a strong and robust response to the buyer’s specification.

We are really pleased for our client and wish them well with the new contract.

SME PQQ success!

posted: January 13th, 2014

Fantastic news for one of our very small SME clients who have been successful with the PQQ stage of a tender exercise. The client is based it the North West and has only recently wanted to secure work through tendering. Their conception was that they would not be successful due to the larger competitors. It is so reassuring for both the client and us when our expert bid writing team and dispel this myth.

Housing provider ITT success!

posted: December 9th, 2013

More success due to the input of our expert bid writers! We supported a (very) small client with both the PQQ and the ITT for a tender for one of the London Boroughs. This was the first time the client had got involved with the tender process, so it is great that our bid management team have had such an immediate impact. The client is now waiting for confirmation of the outcome of their presentation!
