Challenges of Bid Modeling

Internal time and resource constraints often rush proposal work and prevent sales and business development organizations from putting together the most compelling bids and proposals. Traditional CAD software was designed to create detailed manufacturing documentation, not for fast concept iteration and real-time collaborative work with prospects. Yet, without using 3D up-front, it can be difficult to forecast costs and create a compelling proposal.

SpaceClaim for Bid Modeling

SpaceClaim 3D models and renderings are invaluable tools for improving communication with prospects, speeding up your proposal process, understanding your production costs, and increasing your win ratio.  SpaceClaim’s unique user interface enables engineers supporting new business development efforts to quickly create and modify 3D models to improve their proposal process in areas that include:
  • Merging customer data, supplier components, and in-house CAD data in one environment
  • Creating new concept models quickly and easily that you can share with your customers, R&D engineers, CAE analysts, and the CAD team
  • Pinpointing product costs and enabling you to bid low while maintaining profitability
  • Reducing time-to-market by creating clear 3D specifications for the detailed-design teams
  • Collaborating in real-time with your prospects
