Feature Update: Exciting Improvements to eTendering and Contract Admin

Some of the challenges with software development are timing, delays, and road mapping. Does that Sound familiar! Much like construction, there has to be a process from initial consultation, conceptual planning with a number of phases on our way to substantial completion + the never-ending maintenance planning so the process runs smoothly. In addition, construction stakeholders have to be forward-thinking, always hunting for the next projects. Kind of like Tuckman’s model of forming, storming, norming, and performing. Development stages in all examples are nearly synonymous; there is a process. Nevertheless, the new release is here, and below we list some of our eTendering and Contract Admin improvements.
