You are already Olmero customer for a long time. Just introduce your company.
40 years ago, on 30th November 1979, I founded my company with four employees, three of whom still work for me today. We are currently 10 permanent employees.
I have been using the tendering platform for a very long time to calculate offers with the SIA interface 451. I can also use it as a price editor, because you can easily save prices and use them for the same positions.
What made you decide to become a customer of Olmero?
A colleague called me back then and told me that he was part of a project that was building up an online tendering platform and that I should take part there as well. Sounded like a good thing to me. It soon became clear that this was the perfect way to find out about various projects and to prepare a quote at the same time.
In addition, the exchange between advertiser and bidder is very simple. Using the SIA editor, only a suitable file needs to be sent in order to be able to fill out the offer in a pleasant way.
You also use the building data module for building applications and permits, which allows you to contact decision-makers during the planning phase. What is your experience with this?
That's a very good thing. All projects are shown on a list, which I can convert directly into a mail merge. This enables me to apply for all projects directly. Ultimately, this increases the chance of receiving as many application invitations as possible.
Can you give us reference projects where you were able to acquire orders through Olmero?
Ambassador in Glattbrugg, a large project, billed with about 2.5 million CHF at our company and also at Bucheggplatz, was handled via Olmero. Actually, half of all orders are handled via Olmero.
