eSolutionsGroup has announced a new partnership that connects their leading e-procurement platform, bids&tenders, with Oshawa based AEC Solutions’ cloud-based contract administration platform, Builterra. Builterra’s platform will allow municipalities using bids&tenders to create standardized bid packages, perform real-time cost estimating, track mobile field progress inspections and review progress payment reporting on awarded projects.

“Enhancing the bids&tenders platform with Builterra’s automated transformation of project designs to detailed material specifications ensures accurate and timely preparation of construction tenders,” said Karen Mayfield, President of eSolutionsGroup. “This partnership with Builterra adds value to our bids&tenders clients making it easier for them to develop an accurate tender package, a key foundational step to successful project delivery.”

The Builterra’s project delivery service will provide the hundreds of public sector agencies already using bids&tenders with an added feature to further streamline their procurement process.

“Connecting the Builterra platform contract administration workflow with the bids&tenders e-procurement workflow means that our end users, from disparate groups within the same organization, can finally have an end-to-end solution that addresses the technology gap in the project delivery process,” said Jeff Lyons, Director of Platform Innovation at Builterra. “It’s really great to have a partner like eSolutionsGroup that understands the value of streamlining the flow of data throughout the whole design and construction process.”

Through 17 years in business, 300-plus public sector clients, and 53 marketing and technology awards in the past 12 months alone, it all adds up. Learn more at
