Tenderlake makes it easy to discover new relevant opportunities. Simply define your search criteria and watch the opportunities appear daily in the shared inbox.
Based on your relevance feedback, Tenderlake’s artificial intelligence layer quickly learns to identify relevant opportunities you might not search for. This helps ensure no good opportunity is missed or discovered too late.
You can also select a list of tenders you have previously submitted bids for and thus train Tenderlake to identify similar opportunities.
And there is Tenderlake Genius, an intelligent agent that can read your website and your marketing materials and immediately understand what products and services you are supplying, and create a stream of open opportunities for you.
On our Professional plan, you have access to all OJEU notices, for all countries and in all languages, as well as lower-value UK notices.
Team members tasked with finding, screening and evaluating opportunities share access to the inbox. This ensures that tenders are discovered earlier during holidays or when the team member who usually looks after new tender alerts are off.
While Tenderlake itself provides you with access to public tenders, many organisations collect opportunities from multiple sources. Tenderlake enables you to consolidate all opportunities in one place, no matter the source.
When you spot an interesting opportunity outside Tenderlake, it is quick and easy to enter the information into Tenderlake or link to it.
Now, with all relevant opportunities in one place, you can run a much more streamlined and cost-effective process of screening, evaluating and preparing tenders.
Tenderlake enables you to organise notices into bespoke folders. And with easy-to-use search functions, a notice is never far away when you need it.
Tenderlake allows team members to attach comments to notices. It can be a viewpoint, a question to other team members or some clarifying information.
Now you can tap into the collective experience and wisdom of your team as soon as the notice appears in Tenderlake.
Formal evaluation of tenders is often key to making the right decision on whether to bid or not.
Tenderlake helps you qualify opportunities better and faster by enabling invited team-members to respond to formal evaluations of opportunities.
Alternatively, junior staff tasked with initial screening of tenders, can request specific feedback on opportunities from more senior staff.
As a result, your team can quickly get to work on the right opportunities, avoiding the costly mistake of wasting resources on a bid you should not have initiated.
Once you have decided to respond to a tender, Tenderlake makes it super-easy to transform the tender documents into tasks.
Tasks can be assigned a priority, a task type (e.g. document), an estimated number of hours to complete, deadline, and work resources in the form of team members – just to mention some of the data options.
Tasks can quickly be assigned to team members, who can keep the project manager updated on progress by updating the tasks progress indicator.
Team members have their own individual dashboards where they can clearly see their tasks and key metrics for the projects they are involved with.
Team members are spurred on by constantly seeing if their progress is ahead, on par, or lagging that of the project.
Finally an activity feed showing completed activities and update on progress from colleagues, lets everyone keep their finger on the project’s pulse.
Project managers have their own dashboard where they can keep track of all the projects they manage.
Project managers can also quickly find and edit any task related to any of their projects.
Tasks and their status can quickly be exported to Excel, CSV or PDF formats for further analysis.
Project managers can keep a close eye on the costs involved in preparing a response.
Because team members record the time spent on each task as well as any direct expenses, project managers can use individual hourly rates to transform the recorded time into overall costs. Non-task related costs can also be recorded by the project manager.
It all enables the project manager to better understand and manage costs.
A Kanban view provides an easy and clear view of the tasks in a single project, or in all projects.
In one picture team members can see which tasks have not started, are in progress and which are complete.
The Kanban view can be filtered down to one team member, a feature that is especially helpful if the project manager quickly needs to redistribute a team members tasks.
