Advice for tender submissions for plumbing contractors

Know what you need to do to win the contracts you want.

As a firm of business coaches that work with B2B and trade-based businesses that specialise in commercial maintenance work, we know the appeal of tenders. With over 20 years coaching successful commercial maintenance plumbing businesses, we speak from experience when we say that the tender process has its upsides and downsides.

Tenders can be goldmines. Recurring work, schedules planned well in advance, professional relationships with clients who are accountable and have robust systems. However, if the tender is not the right fit for your business or if you aren’t properly prepared for what’s involved, the tender process can be a minefield.

The experience our business coach team has in advising our plumbing contractor clients to win tenders means we know what you need to know:

  • How to respond to different types of tenders: Know the key drivers of the tender selection process and get ahead of your competition

  • Best Practices: Learn from best in breed to level up your tender submission and accelerate you to the shortlist.

  • Strategic planning and execution: Winning the tender is only part of the process. We coach you on how to strategically plan to execute the work and manage your resources to lead from the front.
