Peter Winsche - Client Director at British Telecommunications

“Having run a number of bids through BidCompass i am delighted with the focus it instills. Fully exploiting the "comments" feature throughout the process enables me to quickly and effectively produce an Action Plan to ensure i can enhance position. The range of management information BidCompass delivers really supports quick and effective Trend Analysis and Reporting.”


Tim Aitken - Quintec

“Given the many bids and tenders we have seen over the years there is no such thing as a typical bid or an "off the shelf" solution. Indeed, our experience has shown every bid is different and has to be tailored to the specific circumstances which prevail. Meticulous planning at the outset is absolutely vital, BidCompass encourages debate and really aligns and directs the business opportunity throughout.”


John Buttress - Fujitsu Services

“I found the BidCompass Planning Tool to be an intuitive, easy to use tool that encourages a common sense and best practice approach to assessing bidding opportunities and planning. In my experience, many organisations will claim confidently, “we already follow best practice”, and then go on to waste large sums of money doing just the opposite. I strongly believe that this tool provides a focussed and dynamic approach to help organisations put best practice into practice.”
