Ian Smith, our CEO, has been winning tenders for over 30 years, initially in the corporate world and latterly, on behalf of his SME clients, through Winning Tenders as a service provider.
You might say MSP (managed services provider) is the modern phrase for a company that plugs a client’s business support systems together to improve throughput, efficiency and profitability.
Back in 1991 Ian was instrumental in setting up a complete managed services operation for BP Exploration when they moved out of central London to new offices near Heathrow. Ian recruited 23 staff and sourced all the necessary hardware and software to provide a complete on-site mailroom, print and graphics facility.
More significant wins followed – the Department of Health, WS Atkins, Diageo, Esso, Yorkshire Gas & Power and three NHS trusts to name just a few!
As part of the outsourcing trend, in 2000, Ian was retained by HP to devise the documentation for its managed print services contracts.
Today, ICT rules the roost and someone has to be looking after the heartbeat of a company. Coming right up to date, Winning Tenders has very recently WON a £200,000 managed ICT services contract with a city council in the north east for services in 3 locations and we are in the process of submitting a number of similar bids.
Clients are saying that invitations to tender (ITTs) are getting more and more difficult. Although they can happily cope with the technological complexity, the increasingly demanding tender requirements are now too time consuming and our outsourced solution saves valuable time as well as giving them a much better chance of winning.
We are based in Exeter but, with clients all over the country, we are not limited in any way by geography.
