Bid Language Expert
English isn’t English. Business English can be difficult to write in customer-facing documents and especially in bid and executive summary documents. When you write a bid to a customer it is not only the representation of your solution to his requirements but it is also a demonstration of your professionalism and care.

Further, the M-PACT expert can develop language standards for your bid document and proofread and correct the documents other team members have written so, again, enabling you to show your professionalism to your customer.
