Helping You Keep Up with Changing Times - PVBid

Well, we’re a month into the new year! Here at PVBid, we’ve started the year off really well. Our Estimating Service has been a huge hit – we even have clients who are partnering with us as their only estimators. The software is developing in awesome ways and we’re getting great feedback from our customers. This comes just in time – with the new tariffs on solar panels the leaner and efficiency benefits of PVBid are becoming more vital.


What does PVBid do?
We have opened a new service! I started PVBid to help solve the challenges faced every day by estimators and solar companies.  Specifically, our new Estimating as a Service addresses

  • Soft costs – reduce the long turnaround times.
  • Cost of focus – keeping the talent focused on what they do best – selling and building.
