EstimateOne to expand beyond Australasian e-tendering

Streamlining complex construction procurement in Australia could be platform for growth into other markets, EstimateOne’s founders believe. I have been writing about web-based tendering solutions for the construction industry for around 10 years, watching what has been a slow and still somewhat gradual expansion. By 2005, my then employer, BIW Technologies (now Conject) had launched an e-tendering solution that …
