Owners and Facility Managers

BB-Bid’s ability to provide you with business intelligence on General Contractors, Subcontractors and Suppliers can help you complete your next project on time and on budget, while eliminating risk.  Powerful online tools enable you to effectively identify, prequalify and communicate your project requirements to the right companies. Best of all – the entire system, complete with an award-winning “concierge service” is available to you at the same rate you have been paying for The Blue Book for nearly 100 years – FREE!

Prequalify your Vendors
If you are starting a major project or need to upgrade an existing building, it is important that you get the right contractors. With our customizable prequalification process, in combination with our industry leading database of business intelligence, you can be sure you will build the right team.

Effectively Communicate Project Requirements
Whether this is a design-build project or a hard bid, you need to communicate your requirements effectively. BB-Bid’s communication platform is a secure, state of the art system that currently delivers over one million messages weekly! By messaging with BB-Bid, you can be sure that your messages get delivered.  The Blue Book Network will monitor any undelivered email for you and resend the messages automatically so you don’t leave an important member of your team out of the loop. 

Distribute Documents Easily and Securely
BB-Bid’s plan room and design room provide a secure, project specific delivery vehicle for your documents. In addition the Blue Book Network Team can index and convert your documents to industry standard PDF if you desire, to ensure all contractors can easily review documents and effectively communicate with you. Plus – a free PDF take-off and mark-up tool is integrated into the plan room making digital document communication between you and your invited contractors simple and easy. 

Generate Reports to Manage Communication and Document Activity
In the end, we all need to make sure we have the proper documentation and BB-Bid provides you with many reports including messages sent/read, utilization of the plan room, qualification reports and more. If there isn’t a report that satisfies your requirements, ask one of our Project Communication Group Specialists – there is a good chance we can build what you need.

Take advantage of The Blue Book Network’s Free Concierge Service
The Blue Book Network recognizes that owners and facility managers do not request bids and proposals every day. If you prefer, you can just pick up the phone and your personal Project Communication Specialist will work with you to qualify your vendors and deliver your documents for you!
