Virtual Planroom Network
This exclusive SmartBid partnership with the Virtual Planroom Network brings a two-way integration of project news and information.
The Virtual Planroom Network is a collaboration of builders’ exchanges that provide online plan distribution, construction news, and competitive bid reporting services for local contractors. As the preferred bid management software for the VPRN, SmartBid helps general contractors find and bid more projects through this two-way integration.
The Virtual Planroom Network currently consists of local builders exchanges across Texas, California, Michigan, Wisconsin and New Mexico – with more joining the network in 2017!
By taking advantage of this integration, SmartBid users can:
View Projects in the Virtual Planroom Network
Directly from the SmartBid system, a free viewing portal is available for easy access to a continually-updated list of upcoming projects in your area. Under your current Projects tab, click to view the Virtual Planroom Network and select from any available filter to find your ideal project.
Import Projects From the Virtual Planroom Network
While viewing projects in the Virtual Planroom Network, SmartBid users can quickly import project information and documents into their SmartBid account with the click of a button.
Publish Projects to the Virtual Planroom Network
From within your SmartBid system, publish any public projects directly to the Virtual Planroom Network to take advantage of its 60,000 members for improved bid coverage and subcontractor selection.
Connect With Subcontractors in the Virtual Planroom Network
Join the Virtual Planroom Network to boost bid coverage and engage the subcontractors that are actively viewing your published projects inside VPRN. Review the bid history of subcontractors you are considering inviting to bid future projects.
Take our users’ word for it:
“The Most User-Friendly Product on the Market”
“We made the subcontractor experience our first priority when searching for a new bid solicitation tool. SmartBid excelled in that area, and proved to be the most user-friendly product on the market. When you look past the sales gimmicks of other products to see the functionality and ongoing support of SmartBidNet, I think you will come to the same conclusion.”

“Literally a Button Push”
“The integration between SmartBid and our Network of local Builders Exchanges means contractors get the best of our combined strengths – access to bid opportunities and local subs and a state-of-the-art platform to manage the bid process privately. It is literally a button push to import bid information into SmartBid or publish bid information in the local Builders Exchange.”
