Testimonials

Use a business that leads the way, not one that follows
Each of the people below are happy to be contacted: please ask us and we'll arrange it.
We are a national injury management provider which has been operational since 1995. Throughout our years of trading, the process of submitting and/or applying for tenders has been overwhelming and also had greatly impacted on the daily running of the business. We have never had a positive experience with external tender providers and therefore at times have not applied and potentially missed good opportunities. I found BidBuddy via an internet search in a desperate attempt to find a suitable partner. I made contact because I was drawn to the name and the website offered what we
were so desperately searching for.  

Sue immediately responded to our inquiry and after a few telephone conversations we engaged her and the team to assist with a new tender. We were initially sceptical as they were not located in our State nor
had they direct experience with our industry. They were very quick to get across our industry and our business and we thoroughly enjoyed working with
them.  

Since that first contact some 4 weeks ago, we have engaged Sue and the team for 3 tenders. Our experience of the team is
competent, organised, and they calmly planned and wrote our tenders, demonstrating our organisation in its best light. No matter what the outcome, I am confident for the first time in the history of this business, we have submitted quality tenders and  this new relationship with
BidBuddy will transform our business.
- SANDRA D, Managing Director
WORKPLACE INJURY MANAGEMENT PROVIDER
Sue at BidBuddy has done my tenders for many years. In that time we have improved our tender strike rate greatly. Sue’s ability to turn your tender submission into the story of what your business is about is paramount to your success.
Getting BidBuddy to do my tenders is an easy solution to  a potential time problem which otherwise impacts on the day-to-day running of my business. 
- Paul HARRISON, Managing Director
logistics company
When calling past clients prospecting for work, one of them invited us to bid for a large design & construct job that they had out in the market. Unfortunately this was Wednesday and it was due the following Monday - with no possibility of an extension.

The short time frame, coupled with the fact that we had never tendered for work of this size and complexity before, presented us with a problem of how to prepare a quality bid in time. We had
neither the skills nor collateral to pull this off.

Sue and her team from Bidbuddy stepped into the breach and worked tirelessly over the weekend  to produce a very high-quality proposal that got us shortlisted. We have now just received confirmation that we have been awarded the work. We are very happy and will definitely make use of their services again in future.
- dave mENEY, principal
engineering design company
We have been in business for 34+ years. In 2009 we made a decision to expand and start responding to government tenders with little success. This is where Sue and her team got involved. With Sue’s experience in government procurement, knowledge of the “hidden question” behind the questions asked in the Request Documents, we have won most of the government tenders we’ve been submitting responses for.

Sue and her team is efficient and professional, delivering quality documents and support to a standard that constantly meets or exceeds our expectations. One of the biggest advantages for
us is that our day to day business is not disturbed by ‘all of our staff’ focusing on the tender response and then playing catch up after the tender is submitted. It is always stressful when responding and trying to deal with the day to day business.

I especially like the round the clock service and the fact that we can send information in the evening and it is done flawlessly by morning.

We are extremely happy with the service we receive from Bidbuddy and have no hesitation recommending them and will certainly continue using them in future.
- JOE CARRIERA, GENERAL MANAGER
ABORICULTURAL SERVICES COMPANY
I’ve been submitting bids/tenders for over 15 years and believed they were very professional, up
there with the best. How wrong I was!! Time spent with Sue at BidBuddy certainly changed my whole approach and perception. Sue’s structured approach and focus on understanding and responding to what is important to the customer
lifted our submission to a whole new level. If you want to be up there with the best – this is where you need to be
- RICHARD WALTON, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT MANAGER
LOGISTICS COMPANY
I support some of the other comments - great course!  You've succeeded in opening
my thinking beyond my immediate business and to realise that everything everywhere is interconnected. I appreciate the massive effort you've put into this course - it will definitely stand out as one of the most thought-provoking
and interactive courses I've done (not to mention enjoyable).
- MARY R. WORKSHOP PARTICIPANT
Sue and BidBuddy has assisted us in finding
ways of expressing who we are, what we do and has added so much value to our ability to succeed through the succinct presentation of our abilities. Before Sue assisted us, we were not clearly presenting our abilities.
- PHILIP G, DIRECTOR
ARCHITECTURE COMPANY
We wanted to respond to a Government Tender calling for our services. After reading the document it was evident that we had neither the skills nor the expertise to pull together a professional response that would showcase our offering and put us in good standing to win. It was a very important tender to our business and we wanted to put our best foot forward. We had the Subject Matter Expertise and the technical know how, what we lacked was the experience in having done something like this before.The timeframe was very tight and we had been advised that an extension was not going to be considered.

Sue and her team came highly recommended to us as experienced and knowledgable in the Government space. Sue met with us and crafted a plan of attack to get the content and create a template for us to follow. What we felt was important at this stage was her confidence in being able to deliver a quality document. Sue has a unique way of getting everybody on the same page and working hard till the final goal has been met. Needless to say, we met the deadline and produced an outstanding response that we believe
represents us perfectly. 

The highest recommendation you can give a person or company is to say that you would work with them again and tell others about
them. We feel that way about Sue and BidBuddy.
- KIM GRAY, GENERAL MANAGER
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY PROVIDER
Ms Sue Findlay has been a close working colleague with my company now for more than three years working primarily on a very large construction project for one of the oil and gas industry majors.

Ms Findlay, through her business Bidbuddy, was successful in securing this contract for the client and on the basis of her reputation and performance on that work we engaged her services.

We have found that Ms Findlay's performance of all tasks set before her, in particular the financial and contract management of this project, has been exemplary. She has at all times performed her tasks efficiently and with the highest level of professionalism. Her organisational skills are excellent.

Ms Findlay has displayed loyalty and discretion in dealing with our company business. She has a wide range of skills ranging from preparation of tenders and bid responses for new contracts to contract administration and budgetary management.

I would have no hesitation in continuing to use the services of Bidbuddy and Ms Findlay on future projects and highly recommended to other clients.
If you've tried the rest, time to use the best!
