Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) February 01, 2013
MinuteBids Inc., a Bloomington-based technology company announced today that it has launched GroupBids in the Minneapolis and St. Paul metro area. GroupBids powered by MinuteBids allows independent property managers to combine their bid requests with their neighbors, increasing their buying power and improving the project efficiencies of MinuteBids service providers.
“We interviewed our service providers and learned that they can spend half their day traveling to job sites,” said Cory Factor, chief executive officer, MinuteBids. “They told us that if we could reduce their travel time, they’d be more efficient and willing to share their savings. We’ve seen property managers save 20 to 40% on their projects when the service provider focuses in a specific neighborhood. GroupBids simplifies collaboration between proximity based property managers and makes those savings a reality.”
GroupBids uses MinuteBids’ platform to streamlines the entire process for property managers. Property managers can submit projects for services such as lawn care, parking lot maintenance, roofing, plants and flowers, tree and shrub care and others. GroupBids allows them to review their bids separately but still join their neighbors to gain the buying power of a larger and local group. GroupBids and MinuteBids are free services, and the only fees involved are associated with new business wins by MinuteBids service providers. All registered MinuteBids members qualify for GroupBids activities.
MinuteBids’ focus continues to be growing its base of registered property managers and service providers across a broad base of maintenance specializations as well as offering new services to enhance those business relationships Currently, MinuteBids offers over a dozen service categories and nearly 70 service specializations in over twenty markets and it’s adding more services every day.
Currently available in over twenty markets, MinuteBids enables property managers to easily submit bid requests to multiple local commercial property service providers. Our unique Project Creator uses scope of work questions, aerial photos, and simple annotation tools that allow property managers to quickly define their projects and be matched to MinuteBids service providers. Additionally, GroupBids allows property managers in the same area to combine their bid requests to leverage their buying power. MinuteBids works with its customers to build the features they need to run their businesses more successfully. For more information, visit http://www.minutebids.com.
