Satellite Applications Catapult

‘The Catapult was experiencing particularly high demand for bids at a time when we were undermanned due to circumstances beyond our control. You were able to identify and provide the services of a qualified, experienced and skilled Bid Manager to work on a particularly complex and demanding proposal. I would have no hesitation in using Bespoke Bids services again in the future and am happy to recommend your company to any organisation that may require your services.’

It has really helped us robustly qualify opportunities, enhance our position, plan and also regularly analyse our bid performance. We find it really user friendly and have had no issues with the tool in all this time.’

‘The service Houghton International recently received from Bespoke Bids was second to none. From the first phone call, which was actually the first ever communication between the two companies, to the follow up meetings Bespoke Bids were helpful, knowledgeable and just generally nice to deal with…. Bespoke Bids assisted Houghton International in making an important business decision based on facts, not opinions. I would have no hesitation in contacting Bespoke Bids again or recommending them to Houghton International customers and suppliers.’

‘Having run a number of bids through BidCompass I am delighted with the focus it instils. Fully exploiting the “comments” feature throughout the process enables me to quickly and effectively produce an Action Plan to ensure I can enhance position. The range of management information BidCompass delivers really supports quick and effective Trend Analysis and Reporting.’

‘I found the BidCompass Planning Tool to be an intuitive, easy to use tool that encourages a common sense and best practice approach to assessing bidding opportunities and planning. In my experience, many organisations will claim confidently “we already follow best practice” and then go on to waste large sums of money doing just the opposite. I strongly believe that this tool provides a focussed and dynamic approach to help organisations put best practice into practice.’
