An FTP site may be cheaper, but you receive no tracking options, and speed is often extremely limited for those who are downloading from your local FTP server.
Bid Intent’s advantages allow you to see who is logging in to view your project, what files they’ve downloaded, and if they are planning on submitting a bid.
Bid Intent is faster than FTP; Bid Intent’s servers are located on a fibre optic backbone, meaning blazing faster connectivity for uploading and downloading.
Bid Intent saves money on tedious office tasks by freeing up those who have to
