Once you've created a new bid package, you are ready to start inviting bidders. Clicking on the "Add Bidders" button will allow you to invite bidders in several ways:
To invite bidders using search
1. Navigate to the "Search" tab. Enter the requested details like the address of the job site and the scope of work. Our system will generate a list of subcontractors that match your search criteria. From here, you can add individuals from each company, or use our "Add multiple" feature.
2. You can also search for a specific company using the search bar.

To invite a bidder via email
1. Navigate to the "Email" tab.
2. Type in the email address of the bidder you would like to add.
