In April 2016 IP Telecom engaged with Sheena Lowey to assist with an RFT for a public sector Institute of Technology for the first of it's kind entirely 100% Hosted PBX installation and telecommunications contract. 

IP Telecom specialise in Hosted PBX technology and were confident in our ability to deliver on this tender should we win it.
However, with limited experience of tendering to the Public Sector the management team at IP Telecom made a decision to outsource the organisation side of responding to RFT to someone with the skills and experience of doing this hundreds of times before.

Working closely with IP Telecom's Commercial Director - Anthony Tattan as a single point of contact to delegate further activity internally, Sheena successfully managed the process in an extremely professional and calming fashion.
Working tirelessly to ensure absolute clarity in communication in what was required at each stage and in particular user-friendly methodologies and realistic timelines and project scheduling to gather all relevant information in constructing what we hope will be a winning tender.

We would highly recommend Sheena to any organisation who want to get serious about tendering in their business. Unless you are experienced in responding to tenders and have actually been successful you should definitely outsource to the professionals.

Earlier this year our company used Sheena for Tender Training, and the results were remarkable. She showed us exactly how a winning tender should be compiled. She also recognised the strengths and weaknesses of our team. I would certainly recommend her services to any other company and look forward to working with her again soon on other tasks.
