SmartBid, a product of JBKnowledge, Inc. is now the preferred bid management software for the Virtual Builders Exchange and its members.  General Contractors and Prime Sub-Contractors can use SmartBid with the Virtual Plan Room to help manage project listings and invitations to bid from both online platforms with the new "seamless" integration.

Publish your project in the Virtual Plan Room to reach more local subcontractors or find bid opportunities in the Virtual Plan Room and move them to SmartBid to manage the bid process with complete privacy.   SmartBid streamlines the bid process for general contractors by:
  • Integrating prequalification
  • Simplifying subcontractor management
  • Streamlining invitations to bid
  • Allowing document collaboration in a secure web-based platform

If You're A General Contractor 

Using SmartBid with VBX allows you to:
  • Publish your public bid projects from SmartBid to the Virtual Plan Room.
  • Pull projects and documents from the Virtual Plan Room into SmartBid for private prequalification and management.
The SmartBid and VBX partnership bring a streamed lined flow of information between two strong, dependable platforms.
