Winning a successful tender can put your company on the map. It’s also a gratifying feeling knowing all your hard work has paid off. Here at Bidsmith, we thrive on that feeling of a successful tender. Putting together a tender is a big effort, usually requiring a team of people to work together to make a complete tender a reality. It isn’t easy, especially when you have many other duties in your business. It helps to create or use a pre-existing tender document template to complete your tender. If you’ve been thinking of creating a template, read on, for reasons that we recommend them.
You know exactly where to place the material
This tender is a very important document for your business. It’s natural to want the document to look the best it can be. This means you can sometimes overthink the layout of your tender document. A template takes those decisions and simplifies the decisions you have to make. All you have to focus on is the content. However, if your tender requires an industry-specific template, make sure you are using the most up to date version.
Being able to focus on the content is a godsend when you are pressed for time. However, the information you may need is not always readily available when you need it. Content can take a lot of time to construct in a way that is legible and consistent. When you use a tender document template you know your content is going to be presented in a clear, legible format that is easy to read for the client that has put out an offer for a tender. You just have to focus on bringing all the content together. The company you are submitting to will appreciate your commitment to making it clear to read for them. Many companies and government departments will simply discard your tender if it is hard to read or doesn’t fulfil the criteria.
Your document looks well structured and professional
Your tender document template will help your document look slick, professional, and you can be sure you haven’t incoherently answered the questions. Or accidentally answered the same question twice. This also means that you will provide the same consistency that other companies that will be considered for the tender. You will be in good company, making your success far more likely.
You can customise it for your business
When creating your tender document template or using an industry-specific template, it doesn’t mean that you can’t tailor it to your company. Having a slick looking title page is a great idea. Of course, having your logo on each page in an unobtrusive way is a great way to make your tender more personalised and professional. Also, it reminds the client exactly who’s tender document it is.
Here at Bidsmith, we want to make your tender experience a positive and smooth one. That’s why we recommend the use of a pre-designed tender document template. It is a lot of work to pull together a professional tender document at the best of times. We advocate any professional measure that will ensure a successful outcome for your company and put your company on the map.
