Management of information
Managing your businesses or organisations information is a crucial skill to have when preparing for to tender. It is important to have a management system that allows for easy access to information and communication from key personnel. This is because the tender itself will demand a large amount of information, whether it be key personnel CVs or insurance policies it is important to be prepared pre-emptively in order to best attack the tender response.
Having said this it is important to understand that management of information is only truly critical the larger your business or organisation is. As the bigger the business, the bigger the tender and the more information you will be required to procure and provide. Although a smaller business may not hit some of the problems larger businesses or organisations may face when procuring the relevant information it is still in the best interest of small and medium businesses to still incorporate effective management of information systems not just for tenders, but also for the general management of operations.
Win themes or otherwise known as a ‘win strategy’ address the fact that there are multiple competitors when tendering and that in order to rise above the flock you must incorporate something special, a win theme. Win themes often go above the required criteria in order to demonstrate reliability and capability whilst remaining genuine and with integrity.
It is important to note that win themes should never focus on the competition and solely focus on informing the procurer hour your services will benefit them over anyone else. The key is to always portray how you can make the procuring companies lives easier so that everyone can focus on aspects they do best.
