Get the best numbers with Prime Bid's automatic fixed math

Best Numbers

Prime Bid has matrices that solve for the best mathematical solution for one or more subs/suppliers to complete a bid package. This allows for non obvious groups of subs to be used to come to the most competitive bid. Since the process is automatic, it is easy to be more competitive with less effort. The low bid best number is displayed in a green color. Your excluded bids are red and required bids are blue. Immediately know how those decisions affect the bid.

Stop the Errors

Eliminate input or sub number errors. A yellow color displays for a low bid that has been triggered by a cautionary percentage. This is a visual alert to check the numbers. Eliminate math errors because you do not have to write any formulas, all the math is fixed. Eliminate the gotchas in a sub's bid scopes. Create an accurate comparison of the bids with scope adjustments to make bids compare apples-to-apples. You instantly see the differences in scope of work, adjustments and the bid impact.

Team play means real simultaneous multi-user capabilities

Team Play

Prime Bid allows having several people in the bid at one time; this allows the decision maker to spend more time managing the bid, while the other team members are cramming sub bids into their machines. Everyone is contributing to completing the bid. The processing and reviewing of the bids are captured in real time, and able to be reviewed by all involved.


Prime Bid is built flexible enough to fit the job and your style of bidding, yet gives you the structure to work in. You have the flexibility to make critical changes on the fly and see their immediate affect on the bid. You can also view the bid how you want to in both horizontal and vertical views.
