Most Recent Product Reveal Information

December 1, 2022
When a Project Intelligence customer views the details page for a project, they will now have an opportunity to take advantage of a free trial of either ConstructConnect’s On-Screen or PlanSwift® software to assist them with takeoff. To learn more about the capabilities of either takeoff product, users simply have to click the Start Takeoff Trial button (shown below).

 

For more information or to request a free trial, contact your customer service representative or go to the Product Details Page for any project in your bid pipeline.

ConstructConnect Project Intelligence users will now be given the opportunity to activate free trials for our proven and highly accurate takeoff products, On-Screen Takeoff® and PlanSwift®.

If you’re interested in learning more about either product or would like to receive personalized training for these products, please contact your customer service representative.

Starting today, General Contractor customers can request to be added as a bidder to any subscription project in Project Intelligence with the click of a button. When viewing any subscription project in their search results or in Bid Center, General Contractors who want to be listed as a bidder can click the “Add as Bidder” button on the subscription project details page in one of two locations: at the top of the screen, directly above Events, or from within the Contacts section.

Add As Bidder - Top of Page
Add as Bidder - Contacts Section

Clicking on the Add as Bidder button will reveal a form with almost all the needed information populated. To complete the process, the General Contractor simply needs to add their Contact Name and Phone Number.

Add as Bidder info to be submitted.

After clicking submit, the customer will receive an email confirming that their request has been received. Within two business days, they will be notified of their approval status and, if approved, that customer will now appear in the Bidders list for their selected project.

Several minor quality updates were made to ConstructConnect’s Project Intelligence software today. They are:

  • The “Save Search As” button is now fully visible in the top-level navigation (it was partially hidden before in a recent update to the software user interface).

  • The LinkedIn icon is now next to a contact’s name on the Company Details page. Users can simply click on the icon to be taken to that contact’s profile in LinkedIn.

  • Former iSqFt users can now remove projects from their Watch List in Project Intelligence as needed and expected.

  • Long names for saved searches that were initially created in iSqFt are no longer being truncated in Project Intelligence. Users will now be able to see the full name for their saved search.


October 24, 2022

Project Intelligence customers can now display their search results for new project opportunities in a map view. By adding an option to display results in a map format, customers will have greater flexibility and be able to visualize project information more easily. The map also enables customers to readily identify hot spots of activity or patterns, using all the features of Google® maps: layers (terrain/ satellite), street view, and zoom in/out. Once a customer has found projects they’re interested in, they can navigate around the map to see additional information for any of their selected projects, including bid stage and date, project value, and their match score.

Today, Project Intelligence customers will see a new, more intuitive layout when searching for projects or companies. Clicking on the search bar will expand and allow customers to choose how they want to search. Clicking the checkboxes will indicate which information they want to search, like project or company names, project descriptions or details, or documents. They can also select their search type – an exact match of a keyword or phrase or a “smart” search that will look for variations of a keyword string.

There are now multiple ways to load a search. When clicking on the search bar, a customer can rerun a recent search, or they can load any saved search by clicking on the load search button. Or, if they want to clear all filters and keywords to start fresh, click on the New Search.

Additionally, customers can now:

  • Save their sort and column settings with their saved searches. This allows users to organize information according to their preferences and save those preferences for future searches.

  • Select and save their most frequently used saved search as their default search that will load first when visiting the search page.

  • Save a search (including any applied filters and keywords) with the click of a button. When saving a search, customers can also choose to add a color-coded search tag or set it as their default search.

Customers can also load their saved searches with a new button. The load search panel can also be used to delete any saved search when it's no longer needed or designate a new default search.

Click on the lightbulb in the search bar to download a helpful search tips resource guide that includes suggestions on which kind of search to use to help them find what they're looking for more quickly.

Users of ConstructConnect’s Bid Center may have noticed a “cog” icon in the top-level navigation, indicating options for displaying Active, Not Bidding, and Archived projects. This has been corrected, and that icon has been replaced by the new Show Active/Inactive Projects icon above the table (as shown below).


July 28, 2022

General Contractors can save time by significantly streamlining pre-bid day communications workflows using ConstructConnect’s new Communications Template Editor. The first of several new administrative enhancements to the ConstructConnect platform, the Communications Template Editor includes three out-of-the-box templates and two communication themes (colors and fonts) to quickly and easily create a library of messages for different audiences / trades or purposes (i.e., invitation to bid vs. a schedule change). 

 

Completely customizable, ConstructConnect customers can also create corporate-branded communications by uploading their company’s logo, corporate colors and fonts, and personalized messaging. This provides your invited Trade Contractors to respond more quickly by allowing them to easily determine crucial project-related information, such as which company is inviting them to bid, what trades are needed for the project and bid submission dates.

To learn more about how you can customize communications to your trade contractors, click here.


July 25, 2022

Our Bid Center subscribers will see a new Card view option for their Saved Views in their ConstructConnect Bid Center today. Acting as an online bid board, Card View enables trade contractors and their teams to organize, prioritize and take immediate action on all of their active projects - whether invitations to bid or projects that have been added to Bid Center (by ConstructConnect or a member of their team). All the information on each project card can be completely customized and/or sorted according to Project Name or Bid Date, and if the project includes documents, project teams can view them without having to leave Bid Center. Once a project has been reviewed, its bid status can be easily changed by simply dragging and dropping the project card.

June 30 , 2022

Today’s product feature reveal provides ConstructConnect Project Intelligence subscribers with a new, easy-to-use shortcut to view, export or change the status of inactive projects (Not Bidding or Archived).

Located at the top right on the main Bid Center navigation menu, the new icon provides easy access to the additional data needed to get an accurate view of a company’s entire bidding pipeline. This change is also more user-friendly for our customers using smaller screens - such as tablets or even some laptops - enabling ready access to projects without having to scroll horizontally.
