ConstructConnect Insight

It is very well suited for finding projects where your product is specified, and I just use my company name. but, for other keywords, great.. and then it highlights where you are on the document that comes up. Also, it tells you how many times in the specific project documents it is found so you can find all of them.Not sure, but we're not sure how legal, or ethical, it is for the database to show contact names, phone and email addresses. We don't believe those people appreciate unqualified inclusion in company databases for marketing communication.. ie e-newsletters, etc.

Pipeline Suite

Pipeline Suite is a very niche product, but for anyone who has ever dealt with the construction bidding process, you can understand the need for it. With Pipeline Suite, it is so easy to request bids, share documents and plans, and coordinate schedules for submittals. We are able to prequalify sub contractors and vendors at a faster pace as well with the product

Pros

ConstructConnect Insight

  • My favorite part of ConstructConnect is the ability to have detailed specifications that are up to date. We have used other software in the past that sadly could not keep even 50% of posted specifications up to date.
  • The tracking process is great! I have 5-6 personal lists and lists that are created for our team by the ConstructConnect team that tracks different projects for different teams we have.
  • The user-friendly way to search for thousands of projects, products, and companies.

Pipeline Suite

  • Sharing documents and plans with project stakeholders is a piece of cake.
  • The product makes tracking the status of bids so much easier.
Jenna Montgomery | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

ConstructConnect Insight

  • Too many false positives.
  • Slow speeds on occasion.
Dustin Schemmel | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pipeline Suite

  • The onboarding process was difficult for us just because we had some pretty disorganized databases.
  • The product is pricey for small to medium sized firms.

They frequently check-in to make sure you are being properly helped and are quick with a response if you need something.

I have found that the customer support team has an understanding of the construction bidding process. They have been able to see issues through our eyes, so to speak, not just through the eyes of a software company. They have always been very timely in their responses and seem to go above and beyond to solve issues

Alternatives Considered

don't know, haven't used or even courted anyone else for this purpose. Found Reed years ago at ASHRAE/AHR expo, and started it with their pitch then and their good assistance since then.

Pipeline Suite

I don't have a lot of personal experience with SmartBid, but from what I hear from other colleagues, Pipeline Suite makes it easier for subcontractors to access documents/plans and to respond to bids. The interface and design of Pipeline Suite is more modern and the user experience is a major upgrade from SmartBid

Return on Investment

ConstructConnect Insight

  • It's had a huge impact since we switched to it. I do not have exact numbers to share but I would say we have increased weekly leads significantly in the last three years.
  • The time it saves is great! I know that we can trust that 95% of the information we see on ConstructConnect is up to date. This typically will save me multiple calls/emails daily.
  • The only negative thing I can think of is we have fewer interactions with other people daily, whether that be face to face, by phone, or email.
Gregory Palenschat | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pipeline Suite

  • We have been able to respond to more bids using Pipeline Suite.
  • Our proposals are more accurate and organized, which has made our projects come under budget more often.
