Tracked Projects, Saved Search Filters and Nightly Email Updates

PowerBid is all about putting power in your hands, and these are some of the most powerful tools you can use. Due to the high number of projects reported in BXTN’s PowerBid system, it is recommended that you set up custom search filters to identify projects that interest you. You are able to customize your search by Project Phase, Project Type, and Project Category, Funding Type, Geographical Location, Keywords, CSI Numbers, just to name a few. These custom search filters are used by PowerBid to keep you informed of any new projects posted matching your custom filters. PowerBid never stops working for you. Every new project that is entered into our system by our reporters is compared to your custom search filters by PowerBid. When PowerBid finds a match PowerBid sends you a Nightly Email Update alerting you to new projects, tracked projects and custom filter matches. Important information like Bidders List Updates, Addenda, and Bid Date Changes are all sent to keep you up to date. PowerBid is like having an employee that never sleeps, never calls in sick or never takes a vacation!
