For Subcontractors
At etender.net.au we see you as much more than a listing in our database.
You are an integral part of the build process and we want to help you make your business as profitable as possible.  That way everybody wins.
Business is built on relationships and connections made as you go about your day to day activities. Strong businesses are built on strong relationships however, we realize these can take time which seems to be in short supply when your running a busy contracting business. We want to help ‘time poor’ subcontractors find and establish better connections with builders and other subcontractors in our network.   We do this by,
  • providing a well designed, best practice tendering system where both subcontractor and builder have access to same real time information
  • actively searching out and adding new and/or expanding builders to our site – not just the same big guys that appear on other tendering sites.
  • giving you a site listing which captures more information, adds your mug shot and enables you to personalize your message
  • offering premium listings which offer more support services like business coaching, IT support and help with take offs

No matter what your trade is you can use the etender site . Contractors post open projects to the site which require various trades to complete. Depending on your selected criteria you will receive price requests and have access to specific tender documentation which can be downloaded.  You are then able to submit your tender responses electronically.  It is a simple straight forward process.

etender provides you with a continuity of information and reduces the risk of pricing the ‘wrong thing’. Not only does it alert you to the existence of potential work but it also allows you to better manage your paperwork.

What our customers say

David Turner

We’ve used etender from the outset. It’s brilliant. Just brilliant. I can price tenders and have full access to the documents to ensure the quality of my submissions. Once the job is awarded I’m constantly kept informed of changes to documents with automated addendums and transmittals. Even while away in PNG I’m able to access everything I need.  I cannot recommend it highly enough!

I used etender to keep up to date with project documents on site.  It was so easy – I just clicked on a link and I could download the current version of any doc.  No waiting for couriers to deliver new sets of drawings or relying on the subbie to remember to bring his set. I didn’t even have to remember a  password – it gets a tick from me.

I like using etender over other tendering system as its easier to use.  I have also paid for a premium listing so I have access to the most up to date drawings while on the job just using my phone.  Carmel and the gang also personally help me find  more work and give me ongoing help growing my business. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Bloomer Constructions use etender.net.au for all our tender management and document control. We have found the ability to definitively establish and track the distribution and receipt of document revisions to the subcontractor, to be invaluable when assessing the validity of variation claims

As well as using eTENDER for document control and getting pricing in from subbies and suppliers, I find Carmel’s general business advice and coaching invaluable.  She lives and breathes construction and has a wealth of experience in the game.  She is generous with her time and really cares about the people she works with.  I recommend her highly as a business coach and the ‘go-to’ person when you need to find more subbies to price.
