TenderSpace is a new digital procurement platform offering a unique suite of web-based tools for those involved in property or construction related businesses.

It is aimed at all professionals working in the property or construction sector, including clients and advisors, contractors, professionals, suppliers and manufacturers and trades.
TenderSpace connects professionals via its ‘ToolBox’ function which provides a suite of tools to help people connect, analyse and manage workflows and procurement processes in an easier and more efficient way:
Designed to help with the sourcing of new team members, according to parameters controlled by the user.
 Quick Quote
This allows users to build a profile and make it visible to other users.
 Finance Checker
This tool has been specifically designed to help you make informed decisions about the organisations that you do business with; so you can stay ahead of the game.
Mike Jeffries, the former chairman and chief executive of Atkins, is the non-executive chairman and in an interview with Construction Manager said:
“I have been involved in the construction industry for my entire working career. It is an industry built on trust and relationships but in recent years there has been an increasing need for those involved in the industry to broaden their relationships, in order to keep pace with change, much of which has been driven by technology.
“Any platform that potentially improves communication and transparency such as TenderSpace can only help businesses work better together. In an industry that thrives on relationships, TenderSpace creates an opportunity to manage existing relationships and develop new ones.”
