About Bidder Scores:

Bidder Scores are a way to quickly identify the most likely respondents to your bids. These scores are calculated based on the bidder’s history with you, the bidder’s activity in ConstructConnect, and their profile completion and subscription level.

We score bidders higher if they have high levels of activity on your previous invites. Next comes contacts that you haven’t invited yet but are highly engaged in the ConstructConnect platform and those that subscribe to ConstructConnect, since they are more likely to be responsive in the future. Contacts with low activity will be scored lower.

Scores that vary by a few points are still close enough to consider and can help you identify responsive contacts faster. Bidders will be added to trades are a match between their profile and the project.
