It was quickly clear to me that if the subscription generated a single job, it would pay for itself and, over time, generate a healthy ROI. I don’t have to do anything: the alerts just come through every day. And even those projects that aren’t relevant to me right now are a good source of market intelligence.
TenderLink is a great fit for our business. Not only are we able to encourage commercial value, quality and innovation from our suppliers, but our tender notification subscription also enables us to act swiftly on new business opportunities.
With the tenders we’re involved in, we really only have to win one tender and we’ve covered the cost of our subscription for a long time. If we capture a job we’d have otherwise missed, the TenderLink subscription pays for itself and then some. From that perspective the investment is a no-brainer. That’s why the first email I open every morning is the tender notification email from TenderLink.
I would recommend TenderLink to other companies and organisations - definitely. We are very happy with their best-value service and their friendly customer service and communication. Now we don't need to explore any other avenues to find tender notifications; we can just rely on TenderLink for that. We didn't hesitate to re-subscribe when our first year's subscription expired, because we don't want to miss out on any opportunities: the service gives us confidence.
After researching tender notification providers for the company I used to work for, we chose TenderLink because it provided the best value service. Over five years, not one tendering opportunity for that company was ever missed by TenderLink. The cost of subscribing is really so cheap and it is paid for pretty much immediately if just one tender opportunity identified is successful. You can’t afford not to be signed up with TenderLink if tendering forms any part of your business.
OPUS has subscribed to TenderLink’s notification service since 2007. Recently, it’s been an important factor in our securing increased project work in the Pacific Islands, including road and bridge contracts based in Fiji and Samoa.
I have been using TenderLink in my role as Tender Centre Administrator for the past 24 months. Transpacific primarily utilise the tender notification system to keep abreast of upcoming tenders in the waste management, hazardous waste and industrial services sectors.
During this time the team at TenderLink have been instrumental in assisting us with our ability to respond timeously. The administration of TenderLink is professional and responsive. The notification system, easy access to tender information, notice to tender notifications and deadline reminders are instrumental to our success in bidding.
TenderLink’s service provides us with the catch-all we need to be aware of the market and open opportunities across the country. It’s impractical and frankly nigh-on impossible to believe that any company, of any size, will be able to catch every opportunity out there using a manual system. Over 20 years of experience has taught us just how hard it is to capture all that data.
There are several other tender notification companies out there offering the same services as TenderLink, but I am not confident that they provide the same extensive coverage of all markets and media that TenderLink does. Associates of mine who use other notification services have missed relevant bids, and missing just one could mean the potential loss of a substantial revenue opportunity.
