What our Clients Say
Contracts Advance are a capable and intelligent team who we highly rate. The team met and exceeded deadlines, were thorough in appraising our tender and offering recommendations to improve answers. They provided a clear framework for future tenders and a new and improved perspective to answering questions – which we have already seen the benefit of in our submissions through improved quality scores. The key benefit of using Contracts Advance was for their bid review service, which allowed us to get feedback on smaller tenders where outsourcing the entire bid did not make commercial sense. The review service brought a fresh perspective and practical advice (useful rules such as answer lengths, structuring and breaking down responses to make the job easier for the person scoring the tender, features, advantages, benefits), to improve responses. We would unequivocally recommend the Contracts Advance team.
