I'm a Subcontractor or Supplier

Welcome to the Subcontractor and Supplier Feedback Forum. We encourage all EstimateOne members to post suggestions and ideas for improvement. Posting new ideas and voting on existing ideas will help us understand what improvements you want to see.

  1. Awarded Contracts viewable for Paid only Members

    As soon as a contract is posted as awarded, builders are flooded with offers. This often results in the project going to those who DID NOT put in the work at tender time, or even provide an offer before due date. Very disappointing to see grubs abusing this service like this. Even worse to see builders supporting this practise.

  2. Transparency

    While you can see all builders that are tendering you should also see contractors that are tendering as if their are many going for the job tendering process then you have a idea on if you spend your time to tender the job or let it go as theirs to many others going for it ect

  3. Consultants to be split up by their state/office.

    It would be great if the consultants were created separately by their office, not nationally.

  5. Add : "Basements" as a seperate trade

    Basements entail over a dozen different trades that can be quite specialised e.g. Geotextile membranes; plumbing; steel fixers; piling. "Basement tanking waterproofing" is for example totally different to "Waterproofing"

  6. Select multiple jobs at once on Open Tenders list

    It would save time if we could select multiple jobs on the Open Tenders (and Invitations) list and then select our interest.

  7. Company profile

    It would be great to enter our company profile. This would make it easier for potential business partners to understand our core services and competences.

    Hi Daniel,

    Thanks for taking the time to share your idea, this is something we’ve been thinking about too. If you’d be interested in helping, we might be in touch over the coming months to have a chat with you about how you’d see this working.

  9. Searched Documents

    It would be great to be able to download all the documents that come up from a search when you've used the search feature in a project instead of having to open them individually and saving them.

  10. Make tender ID number visible after clicking "Print"

    Thanks for making tender ID number available for quick search.

    However, although we could see tender ID number on key tender details page, it disappears after clicking the "Print" button.

    Therefore, it would be great to have tender ID number visible after clicking "Print".

  13. List Glass Bricks/Glass Blocks as a separate trade.

    This is a trade that is specialised but often only included in masonry or aluminium window packages. The issue here is most bricklayers don't want to install glass bricks and glaziers are unable to.
    Currently our only search option is keywords which drags up every blanket specification mentioning glass bricks/blocks even if there are none in the particular project. Many hours of fruitless document searching is required to locate this product and trade.

  15. Request documents with a tailored email template

    It would be very useful to have the option to add a note (from a template we could upload, or in a text box) when requesting documents - to allow some personal contact without sending two emails/calling just to let someone know we would like to download docs.

  16. Category for media services (timelapse, photography, video, drone)

    Currently without specific categories that allows tendering builders to select our industry sector, narrowing down project specific requirements continues to be a major drawback to using the platform.

    This continues to result in us (and others in the sector) not being able to establish solid responses to estimating tenderers, nor these tendering construction firms being able to select our industry sector as a trade requirement for the project, despite our sector often being a specific requirement within the master tender documents.

    What we find instead, is our sector being category dumped into broader irrelevant categories such as Security or Audio…

  20. Estimate One is to regular once a week would be adequate to receive information, too many emails get lost in the system and not read. I bare

    Estimate One is to regular once a week would be adequate to receive information, too many emails get lost in the system and not read. I barely get time to do my job, therefore, I can't read every email that hits my screen. To improve the whole system would be to get the client (Builders) to send only relevant trade documents and not every document meant for other trades, all these things have a major impact on productively.
    In summary, this is the first estimate one email ive open in months. Personly I don’t like getting a portal system to…
