A small construction project typically has 15 or 16 suppliers who provide various forms of ‘labour’

Today, quote requests and bids are done manually, contracts and tasks are management with a combination of project management tools and accounting systems – but rarely are connected to suppliers or customers, so project reporting and transaction reporting are disconnected and manual. Change orders and contract reconciliation happens often on a project and is communicated manually.

Bizdrive serviceplace facilitates local construction services procurement efficiencies with tools for buying from small service providers, including an RFP system with vendor self-service, and project based progress reporting.

Bizdrive helps construction companies buy sub-contractor services better and serve clients better.

General Contractors and Design Builders use Bizdrive to manage the interactions with their suppliers.

  • Builders specify the project, milestones, tasks and deliverables they need, using Bizdrives project system called Gigs, a collaborative environment shared between the builder and the supplier
  • Suppliers bid directly on the project task and specify their pricing and materials
  • At the completion of the competitive process, the selected vendor is contracted, their service offer ‘purchased’ through the bizdrive system and their work progress tracked online
  • Sellers are added as resources on the tasks and update their progress directly into the system, with time and date stamps and details later used for billing reconciliation
  • Sellers interim billings and progress reports are generated with one button from the Gigs system to use in conjunction with the Builder’s own systems

At the completion of the suppliers work project, the Builder accepts the work and providers feedback and rating.

Once the Construction Customer accepts the final work product or phase and pays their interim bill, Bizdrive’s payment distribution system can distribute payments or payment details

  • Construction company customizes 2 paragraphs of text for an email invitation and registration page and invites their preferred suppliers to sign-up on Bizdrive.
  • When sellers register, they appear on the companies Biz Network page automatically, ready to provide quotes and bid on requests for proposals
  • Sellers are encouraged to provide coupons or deals to win more business from the construction company
