Why choose BWS?

Preparing a tender submission, bid or proposal can be very time consuming and requires a commitment to resources and a specific style and approach. This can be challenging for some businesses if they have never done it before or they do not have a dedicated internal resource to deliver this. As such, outsourced bid support services are becoming increasingly popular.

Clients benefit from a professional bid support service that is adaptable to any industry, based on Association of Proposal Management Professionals (APMP) and Shipley UK best practice. These standards are the global benchmark for outstanding bid management.

Key Benefits include:

  • Built collateral for future tender responses
  • Ability to create a Bid Library
  • Quality responses, enhancing client reputation with the Buyer

  • Bid Library and Templates

    Supporting clients to create a Bid Library over a longer period or as a one-off ad-hoc project. We will work collaboratively with the client to build a platform that best suits their business needs and on completion ensures they have a comprehensive library of collateral that can be used for tender responses by their own teams.

  • Review and Comment Services

    If a business has completed a draft and is looking for an expert viewpoint, we can provide a bid review service which can take many forms including:

    Review and comment: is a lighter touch review and will examine compliance, response structure, unique selling points and added value. We will undertake a full review of all draft documents and provide comments and guidance on how our clients can improve their proposal or tender response.

    Review and improve: is the next step after review and comment. We will undertake compliance checks and carry out a full review and comment of the response. In addition, this service would then seek to improve the written content and manage the bid to completion. To support this, we would collect further information from the client, re-write and develop.

How is Bid Writing Service Different?

In a market where high quality, consistency and compliance is key, services provided by competitors are often designed as a ‘one size fits all’ model. BWS has learned that each client is unique and has various levels of knowledge and understanding of bidding and therefore our approach must be uniquely tailored to each client. We take time to understand your pain points and take the pressure of bidding away from you, so you can focus on developing your solution and win themes. We can be as hands on or as hands off as the client requires.
