At Bidsmith, we champion the underdog, providing bid writing and tender consulting expertise that empowers small businesses to go toe-to-toe with established industry giants. We’ve recently witnessed yet another heartening example of this. A newly established security company came to us seeking our services for their first-ever tender response. Their goal? To secure a significant contract to provide security services to a major club in Canberra. With our assistance, they not only competed – they won. This inspiring story showcases the transformative impact of professional tender preparation on emerging businesses.

Starting a new business is never an easy endeavour. The challenges are doubled in the security industry, where trust plays a pivotal role. A new security company might be top-notch, but without an established reputation, how does it gain the confidence of potential clients? This was the challenge our client faced. They had the personnel, the equipment, and the drive to deliver exceptional security services. They lacked a winning tender response that would convince the club of their capabilities.

Our dedicated tender consultants swung into action as soon as the client engaged our services. The first order of business was to understand the client’s strengths thoroughly. In-depth knowledge of our client’s business model, security protocols, personnel expertise, and unique selling propositions helped us craft a persuasive narrative for the tender document.

Our tender writer translated these strengths into clear language that would resonate with the Canberra club’s decision-makers. We focused on showcasing how our client’s innovative security solutions and customer-centric approach would significantly enhance the club’s safety without disrupting its day-to-day operations.

The tendering process was a new, complex terrain for our client. Thus, part of our role was to demystify it. Our bid manager guided them through each step, from understanding the requirements of the security tender to finalising the tender response. We ensured they knew what was happening at each phase, why, and how it pushed them closer to their goal.

A crucial part of professional tender preparation is identifying potential hurdles and addressing them proactively. This requires a keen understanding of the industry landscape and the possible concerns of the decision-makers. Given the client was a newly established company, we expected questions about their ability to handle a contract of this magnitude.

In response, we highlighted the extensive industry experience of the leadership team and staff, the quality of their equipment, and their comprehensive contingency plans. We also emphasised their commitment to continually training and upskilling their personnel to stay abreast of evolving security threats. This proactive approach helped assuage concerns about their capacity to deliver on the contract.

Our efforts resulted in a robust, compelling tender document that stood out among the submissions. It was triumphant when we received the news – our client had won the tender. Their excitement was palpable as they prepared to deliver top-tier security services for the major club in Canberra, marking their first significant contract win.

This victory underlines the importance of professional tender preparation and consulting, especially for new companies. The right support can significantly enhance a business’s chances of winning tenders, creating opportunities for growth and success. The story of this newly established security company serves as a testament to what can be achieved with determination, quality services, and expert tender consulting. Here at Bidsmith, we’re thrilled to have been part of this journey and excited to see where they go from here.
