Tendering

I’ve now got a fighting chance to win more business from local authorities. Previously I was banging my head against a brick wall and I’d be still doing that if I hadn’t asked for help. It’s a case of you don’t know what you don’t know until someone points it out to you, then its obvious.”

“Thank you for your help and support. It was greatly appreciated especially the diplomatic way you worked with those currently finding and completing tenders for the public sector.

Can I just take this opportunity to say thank you very much for your help and input into this process. We approached you to help with this with some experience of submitting tenders – mostly successful but not 100% and I wasn’t sure how much extra you would add.It became clear very quickly how much you would add and how wide of the mark some of our approach had been in the past. Your knowledge and practical help has been immense, invaluable and very stimulating.

 

Your involvement helped us keep focused (or should that be made us keep focused!!) and your attention to detail really has put a professional polish on the work. You have been easy to work with (and I know we aren’t always!) and the whole experience has been enjoyable. This won’t be the last tender we have to do. I am sure we are much better equipped to tackle the next one on our own if necessary, we really have learnt that much; however I would much prefer to engage your services once again and draw on your help and support once more to make our submission as good as it possibly can be.

 

I am extremely pleased with the final submission and once again thank you very much.

 

Hugh Mellett | Director of Operations | Tree House Care

 

Thank you for your support and expert assistance during our recent successful tender bid process.

We found you easy to work with and your calm and reassuring manner was much needed in a rather fraught and limited time process. You have obviously got a great deal of experience in this field and led us by the hand towards a quality finished submission. Your attention to detail was second to none and we appreciated your willingness to be available at short notice and during ‘non-working’ hours.

We would happily recommend your services to anyone else going through a similar process.

 

Steven Elsworth | Manager | Durnford Dermatology

All it took was a gentle (perhaps not so gentle) and persistent nudge from Mark to sharpen up how we approached tendering for public sector business. We learnt from each tender, developed the expertise we needed and won some good business.

I would not hesitate to recommend Qualitar.

Steve Massey | Purchasing Co-ordinator Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council

Will Parsons and Mark Allen provided really useful input to our Best Value Review of Procurement and helped us achieve a much better result with more substantial savings identified through improved procurement practices.

 

Francis Murphy | Best Value Officer | Southend-on-Sea Borough Council

 

I was inspired by your training to approach one of my existing suppliers with renewed vigour. I asked them to explore cost-down opportunities and as a result we are putting in place new arrangements that will save us £20,000 a year for the next four years while maintaining their existing high levels of quality.
