“We love working with The Bid Lab’s team of experienced and hard-working consultants. I am always surprised at how consistently they can deliver RFPs that would take us dozens of hours to complete. We probably would not have pursued — and won — the business we did in the last year without The Bid Lab finding the opportunities and helping us win them.“– JR Denson

- Prekindle won additional RFP opportunities after their first government bid!
As an already successful and respected ticketing software business within the private sector, Prekindle understood they needed to pursue public sector opportunities in order to continue developing their business. Consequently, Prekindle identified a federal agency opportunity they were interested in pursuing. However, after reviewing the various proposal requirements, Prekindle immediately recognized that they didn’t have the in-house expertise or resources to manage the bid response.
In effect, Prekindle sought out a partner to not only be an extension of their team, but also to match its dedication to professionalism, quality and service. Prekindle found an apt and able partner in The Bid Lab.
Prekindle partnered with The Bid Lab to manage the pre-solicitation process for the federal bid. Our team completed all of the research, preparation, proofing, writing, editing, project management and design. This left the Prekindle team able to focus their resources on positioning their best offering.
Our dedicated project manager worked closely with their experts. Together, we not only submitted an inclusive and responsive bid, but also crafted a reusable, compelling proposal. As a result, after completing the pre-solicitation and submitting the formal proposal, Prekindle won the contract!
“We are so excited to have won a contract for a federal agency — something we just could not have imagined contemplating when we first started bidding! Whenever a new bid opportunity lands on my desk, I am excited for the chance to bid as opposed to that pit in my stomach I used to get! So excited I found these guys and will definitely be bidding with them for years to come!”– JR Denson

The Results of the Engagement
While many of Prekindle’s competitors suffered through the Covid crisis, Prekindle was able to thrive by diversifying their business away from solely the private sector.
Following the win of this federal government contract, Prekindle approached The Bid Lab to help execute another RFP. This time for an existing client, they wanted to ensure the same attention to detail was maintained on this high-priority contract. Utilizing much of the content previously developed quickly became the gift that keeps on giving! Prekindle went on to also win this bid — a testament to both The Bid Lab’s services and Prekindle’s offering.
