The secret sauce to winning contracts

5 October 2023

In the ever-competitive world of construction, finding new leads and winning contracts has been a long standing challenge. It’s like drinking from the same old well of builders and consultants over and over again. But what if we told you there’s a fresh, exciting way to spice up your lead game? Enter EstimateOne.

The challenge: searching for new leads

For ages, suppliers have been stuck in a loop, relying heavily on builders and consultants for leads. It’s like a never-ending merry-go-round, and let’s be honest, it can get a bit dull. Introducing subcontractors, our new lead heroes.

Subcontractors: the hidden gem

Subcontractors hold the key to new leads. They’re often the main commercial buyers, and they’ve got the inside scoop on juicy project opportunities, but sourcing reliable information about their activities is a real headache. We’re talking endless phone calls to builders and endless lists to scour. It’s like searching for a needle in a haystack, and nobody’s got time for that.

Introducing ‘Subbie Connect’: the game-changer

Hold onto your hard hats because we have a game-changer up its sleeve – Subbie Supplier Connections. This nifty feature is your fast track to knowing which subcontractors are bidding on which projects. No more manual data entry or data scraping nonsense.

The new way you could be doing things

1. Early bird gets the worm

With EstimateOne, you can swoop in early and find out who the big players are before a project is even awarded. That means you can start building those relationships and show off your goods. And guess what? Teaming up with subcontractors at this stage can help them offer killer prices to builders, giving you a leg up in snagging those deals.

2. Supplier’s new lead channel

EstimateOne goes beyond subbie supplier connections though; suppliers can also list their interest in a project. Subbies can then see the available options, creating a new inbound lead channel for suppliers. It’s like a whole new playground for suppliers, subcontractors get more options, and builders get better quotes. It’s a win for everyone involved.

In a world where nabbing contracts can feel like a never-ending game of cat and mouse, we’re here to shake things up. So, if you’re tired of the same old processes when it comes to leads, check out our new Subbie Connect offering.
