Overall Satisfaction with ConstructConnect Insight

I use this software in many different ways--finding new or existing projects that fit my companies parameters. I also use it to search for projects with specific products.

We mainly use it in sales/estimating. From time to time, managers use it to scout for products we may have interest in adding to our distribution list.
  • 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.
  • I would like the option to download a certain subsection from a section of the specifications.
  • I think an archive of older projects that no longer have available documents would be great to have access to with the ability to restore all documents.
  • 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.
We chose ConstructConnect as our main way for finding new and existing construction projects, as it overall had more up-to-date information available. It was also the most user friendly software of its type on the market. Furthermore, they have also been working with us closely to help us tighten our tracking of projects, products, and companies, which saves us a lot of time and money.

I think ConstructConnect is a very valuable tool for any company that wants to find new building projects for their products.

The only time this would be less suitable is if you are not involved at any point in new, old, or just add-on construction.
