A revised, strategic role for bid managers and bid teams

In the past five years, there's been a big shift in bid management. The government's move to digital has doubled the number of tenders. But here's the catch: there aren't enough people with the right skills. Plus, companies are struggling to do more with less.

While consulting on innovation at a top Dutch engineering firm, we stumbled upon a major oversight: registration processes were being massively undervalued. This observation led us to a two-year deep dive into everything RFPs and tenders. Surprisingly, we found no cutting-edge tech solutions that really empower bid teams to win better and faster. Bid management often seems to be overshadowed by sales in many organisations.

Here's an interesting bit: bid management data is actually a hidden gem. This data is often buried in Excel sheets and CRM dashboards, yet it's a goldmine for strategic decisions.

It's a common sentiment among bid directors: things could be more efficient, simpler, and better. But the 'how' is often the missing piece. Our research also revealed that about three-quarters of teams aren't happy with their win rates.

All this ultimately led to the Version-1 launch of Altura in 2022. The very first full-cycle bid management software. Our goal is crystal clear:

We want bid management to play a central role within companies, and for bid managers, supported by our technology, to get a strategic position in the forefront of sales and revenue.

Altura's formula: combining data and technology to create a winning bid process. This strategy enables teams to generate superior registrations informed by precise data insights. It reduces mentally draining work by automating manual tasks. Furthermore, it transforms teams into valuable knowledge resources for the entire organisation.

If you work in bid management, then Altura is for you. We hope you will love our product and can't wait for you to try it.

Frequently asked questions

Because we want to anticipate your questions, we are providing answers to some frequently asked questions here.

Wat is Altura en hoe werkt het?

Altura is een full cycle bid management systeem dat gebruikt wordt door bid-, tender-, proposal management en sales teams. Gebruikers zetten de projectmanagement, analyse en AI tools in om sneller en beter voorstellen te winnen; van het spotten van nieuwe aanbestedingen or voorspelde RFP's, tot het werken aan het voorstel, tot het verbeteren van teams en teksten door data inzichten.

Wij gebruiken kunstmatige intelligentie om het proces van het maken en indienen van voorstellen voor RFP's en tenders te automatiseren. Zodat gebruikers meer met strategie en waarde bezig zijn, en minder met handmatige taken.

Hoe verschilt Altura van andere bidmanagement oplossingen in de markt?

Altura kan je inzetten in het gehele bidmanagement proces. Wat uniek is want de meeste tools kun je inzetten in maar één of een paar stappen van het proces. Lees daar hier meer over.

Hoe komt het dat Altura tijd bespaart in het bid proces?

Veel stappen in het bid proces worden herhaald. Denk aan documenten verzamelen, input ophalen, oude teksten of informatie uit voorstellen halen, of feedback geven. Veel van deze repetitieve en handmatige taken kunnen makkelijk geautomatiseerd worden door software of AI. Dit doet Altura voor je. Niet als vervanging maar juist als support.

Zodat bidmanagers en sales mensen zich weer kunnen focussen op strategie om het bid te winnen. Niet emails sturen met de vraag waar dat "ene stuk" ook al weer staat.

Op welke sectoren focust Altura zich?

Altura is voor elke industrie. We hebben klanten in verschillende sectoren. De AI-algoritmen zijn ontworpen om te leren van eerdere voorstellen. Bovendien kan Altura worden aangepast om te voldoen aan de specifieke behoeften van je organisatie, zodat het is afgestemd op je branche en bidmanagement processen.

Is Altura ISO gecertificeerd?

Alturas is ISO/IEC 27001:2022 gecertificeerd en is volledig GDPR compliant. Verder is onze volledige infrastructuur gehost binnen de EER (EU).
