Bid/Contract Management


Bid/Contract Management

The Spitfire Project Management System Simplifies the Way You Manage Your Contracts

If your bid, contract or change order management still involves a pile of paperwork and the potential for disorganized chaos, you must know there is a better way to do business.

There’s a reason you are called a contractor: contracts are central to your business. So, of course, proper control of contracts is essential. The Spitfire Project Management System allows you to plan, create, execute, monitor and report on all your contracts (regardless of type), giving you piece of mind that all is in order. Whether you have just been awarded a project, need to gather bids from a pool of subcontractors or a public Plan Room, need to manage all the changes that occur during a project, want to monitor compliance requirements, or process your invoices and pay your subcontractors, Spitfire gives you the proper tools every step of the way.

  • Send out large numbers of bid solicitations with corresponding files through automated distribution.
  • Compare at-a-glance all submitted bids with your budget for easier evaluation.
