“We always knew the Bruin platform was the best on the market, but we struggled to consistently present that to possible clients. We onboarded The Bid Lab with the understanding we were partnering with an equally talented group of people focused on the bidding process. And, wow! They delivered. I’ll admit I was a bit skeptical they’d be able to understand the technical components of our solution, but their team took the time to truly grasp our solution to present it like their own. They are truly an extension of our team in every sense. “

The Challenge

Bruin Group, LLC developed a highly sophisticated telecommunications expense management software solution. However, it was a challenge to fully capture their software tool’s thousands of powerful functionalities in easy-to-understand content. Additionally, it was difficult consistently sharing this content in bid proposals that often had very specific, non-uniform questions and requirements.

These bidding opportunities required extremely detailed responses with comprehensive capability overviews, detailed pricing estimates, specific integration availabilities, and much more. Bruin’s tool was the best and most advanced in their industry, but to fully capitalize on the bidding opportunities their software solution deserved, they needed additional support and expertise.


The Solution 

Bruin partnered with The Bid Lab to manage its proposal development process, develop new content, and support pipeline development activities. 

The Bid Lab sprang into action to collect, organize, and audit all of Bruin’s existing proposal and marketing content. Thereupon, we developed updated responses, overviews, case studies, graphics, and more. The collaboration with Bruin’s subject matter experts, financial experts, and contracting directors furthered the company to success.

One specific area TBL targeted was to demonstrate more clearly Bruin’s cost-savings capabilities as an innovative software solution. Bruin already has a demonstrable record of savings, as well as an established algorithm for predicting future savings with a few key inputs. With this information, our team was able to build clear infographics with personalized savings estimates for each bid target. This kind of customized content made an immediate impact on the substance, style, and ultimate success of Bruin’s bids. 

Equipped with a highly technical and more accessible library of content, TBL works with Bruin to identify new bidding opportunities. By leveraging this information, we now create comprehensive, customizable, proposal responses to each individual opportunity.



The Results

This newly developed content, working in conjunction with newly adopted bid-development processes, had an overall immediate impact. 

Subsequently, Bruin has submitted 19 bids with The Bid Lab’s support, and 72% of these proposals have been shortlisted! This ratio of success has transformed Bruin’s RFP targeting approach, and is helping them expand their business to unprecedented levels.

As The Bid Lab’s collaboration with Bruin continues, we are continuing to make an impact on their contract development successes. We further continue to strive and explore new ways to support Bruin’s business development activities. For instance, our design and content development teams continue to support Bruin’s final presentation activities. Furthermore, we are continually refining our project management processes to gain greater efficiencies in our partnership. The Bid Lab is prepared for an ambitious next year with The Bruin Group – with even greater growth!
