When it comes to quoting jobs, although the price is important it only tells one part of the story. We want to help you stand out in front of builders on something other than price, by showing off your experience, suitability and qualifications, thereby improving your chances of winning the job. It’s feedback we often get from Subbies, so we’re excited to have launched Company Profiles within Estimate One.
Your company profile will provide businesses with a snapshot of your business, things like size, location and a short bio. Think of it as a digital business card. It’s dynamic, up-to-date and will be shown to the builders when you request documentation and submit quotes.
While we’re excited about this first release, what we’re really looking forward to is what comes next. Over the next few months we’ll be adding new elements to your profile to really help you shine.
Here’s a preview of what’s to come:
Address book integration (coming soon)
When inviting subbies to tender on a project, builders tap into an address book they host on EstimateOne. However, until now this has been static and details can become out of date. Having a Subbie Company Profile on EstimateOne ensures builders all ways have access to the latest and greatest info of your business.
You will be able to showcase projects you are proud of and demonstrate your trade experience. Simply search completed projects in EstimateOne’s database of past tenders or upload your own using a template.
Region of operation
Operate in a regional area, cover specific regions within a state or have multiple operations all over the country? Soon you’ll be able to define what regions you operate in within your company profile. This will allow builders to search for required trades in specific locations and increase your chance of being invited to quote on the projects that suit your preference.
Certificates and licenses
Stop wasting time finding all of your trade licenses and certifications to send to Contract Admins at contract time. Uploading them into your Company Profile lets builders know that they are dealing with a fully qualified organisation at tender time.
Business verification status
If you want, you can apply to have your business verified by EstimateOne. This will signal to builders that you are a legitimate subcontractor operating on EstimateOne, with a profile that proves you meet a minimum standard of compliance. This creates an early sense of trust when developing a new subbie-builder relationship.
This is the first of many new features coming to the subbie platform in 2022 to help you win more work. Keep an eye on your inbox and in-app notifications to access these new features as soon as they’re ready.
