"In 2014 we decided to engage with Prologic to provide our tendering software and we are extremely happy that we did. Our multi million pound joint venture required a large and diverse supply chain which could easily engage with a user friendly programme eliminating the need to post thousands of documents and drawings.
Prologic have provided a very simple but powerful tendering software tool which our supply chain have found easy to use and which has saved us considerable amounts of time and money. The fully auditable process also offers us and our client peace of mind.
Their attention to our project specific requirements was quite refreshing and their after sales team always responded punctually to any queries or updates. We will certainly be looking to use Prologic again on our next major project."
