"CMD Group has been a very valuable tool in our search for projects to quote. Their system is very user friendly but maybe more importantly is the personal help that is offered when extra information is required. We would be lost without CMD."

Over the past few years we have been using CMD as one of our primary lead generators. We have found, with CMD, a level of detail and help that is invaluable for what my department does. CMD helps us capture project at all stages which allows us to fill our pipeline with opportunities. Their customer service and research departments are easy to deal with and fast to answer inquiries. I would recommend CMD Group to all manufacturers of construction product.

RCD has serviced an exponential uptick in our project search since the beginning of using their program. On line with synthesized project information the Nationally Based Search we do is quite specific and to our satisfaction we find real people, Architects, Engineers and Contractors to discuss and promote our Structural Dome System. The size of project with plans and specifications offers us a cost efficient means to maintain market out-reach with an informed and competitive outlook. I highly recommend the services of RCD the company and the Account Executives who regularly maintain and follow up issues for their client base. A definite professional courtesy.

Patty SaylesCB Products
Our company, CB Products (previously Carmel Arch. Sales), have subscribed to the on-line service from CMD for several years now and have found it to be very beneficial in locating and reviewing projects, contractors who are bidding the job, architect, project managers and down loading plans for our specific trade. Due to our company having to down size and reduce costs, we were not able to continue the top of the line service we experienced in the past and had to cancel our program. We were without the convenience and having quick access to obtaining information we needed for researching the projects. Cheli of CMD seemed determined to help us get back on track and find something that would meet our needs for a reasonable price. She provided just the program we needed and fulfilled our requirements for doing job search. I spoke with my boss and he was delighted to hear that we were again able to have the on-line connection to CMD for an amount we could afford.

The CMD Construction website has been great to use with our company. Being able to find projects fast has really helped minimize down time chasing projects. The ability to be notified of updates/ addendum/ changes has helped our company stay ahead of bids and changes that might not normally be gathered in time. Having follow up capabilities has also minimized the amount of searching we have to do in order to find who has been awarded projects.

Since we started with CMD Data a couple of years ago, the CMD Customer Service has always been prompt and courteous. The format of your project data is easy to follow and I can select the options we need for our particular business. It is also very important to have a list of general contractors and the entire team working on each project.

Your service has been very helpful in finding bids, especially in the public sector. It was very helpful that you gave a guided tour of everything the site has to offer within a few days of our sign up. The ability to pick and choose features was a great way to save money while still receiving all the features we needed out of a procurement website.

The CMD Connect program has greatly enhanced our ability to identify and pursue opportunities in the construction business. We are a worldwide company and need to have the kind of immediate access to open projects that CMD Connect affords us. Having the ability to research completed projects has also been an invaluable tool in allowing us to gauge where we need to apply more resources. It also allows us to penetrate areas of our market that we would not otherwise have been able to identify.

We then contacted the engineer identified on your service and submitted our product for review and consideration as an "or equal" on the project. We received approval and the engineer issued an addendum to the project prior to the bid listing our product as acceptable and allowed the contractors to bid using it.

My experience with CMD has been very beneficial. As I make my target list of jobs and go through them, I am able to delete or add more as needed. I’ve already been approached by Dodge but have no need for their expertise since I’ve been dealing with your company. I get updates on a regular basis when any of my targets have changed anything important. The system that you have is easy to use and not confusing at all. This is a plus when I have a question. There is no need to contact anyone when my answers are a click away.

CMD service has more than paid for itself over the years. We are able to track projects from their concept. Knowing about a project as it’s developing allows us to get in early and educate both the owner and the architect before and during the design phase. We have on occasion been able to take the project off the street or at the very least we can influence the speciation so we are in a stronger position.

I wanted to take a minute and let you know how pleased I am with My CMD Business Report Subscription. We are a Distributor of Fasteners, Tools and Jobsite Supplies serving a broad segment of the commercial construction contractor market. We use the CMD Report to identify upcoming jobs in our market area and make plans to solicit business from the contractors as they come on board for the project. The filters on the search page allow me to customize my search so that I get exactly the return I’m looking for in terms of type of work, locations and values. Two years ago I did an extensive study of the work and value of a three county area in Florida and in part because of the data I was able to successfully launch a full scale branch operation in that territory. This reporting is invaluable to me in the hunt for new business and markets. I also want to let you know that the interface for the sight is intuitive and easy to learn, and I did take advantage of the coaching that came with the subscription in the early days but now I can handle it pretty much on my own. Thanks again for making such a great product. I’m sure I will renew my subscription in January.

"At a fraction of the cost to pay yet another position in our sales structure, CMD Group has unleashed our company of (8) employees to a team of over (50) employees in the last two years with 500% sales growth in that same time period. Our specialized market, up to this point, had no tool which allowed us to search for projects based on the products we are professional installers of. This helped us justify traveling further from our home base, as we knew we did not have to fight the product substitution battle with the architects and began landing the work our guys WANT to do.

I highly recommend this to contractors looking for a contact generator that truly works for the small business on the grow!

CMDs Group has grown my business in the past two years exponentially. Its not easy finding leads for projects bidding in the areas that i am seeking work. CMDs put it all at your fingertips with the use of filters. Cost of projects, location, trade, etc... Searching for projects is as easy as logging in, plugging in what you want to search, and hit go. Another great feature is the project track and bid date reminders. CMDs provides a list of my projects im tracking, and sends my company an email reminding me of the bid dates coming up. Anyway, to make a long story short, one project awarded pays for a year+ of this great service. I would reccomend this service to anyone and will continue to use CMDs for my project leads.

Which in turn saves time, to order plans and wait for them to be delivered before we can start our take-off. When you are not aware of a project, then you will make an effort to obtain the plans for us. Based on our past good results. It looks like we will continue to use your services.

From the beginning with Tom, Mike and Enoch and now the addition of Carol our experience has been 100% satisfactory. I have been in this industry and have dealt with your competitors but your customer service is far greater than all of them combined. The issues we had with the uploading of the most current documents was handled perfectly by Enoch and is still be perfected by you all and Perfection appreciates that very much. I really would like to make sure Enoch and Mike are noticed by their bosses for the great work they have done for us all year. Carol is new to us but also carries the same work ethic as the others previously stated. Thank you ahead of time for another year of your hard work to make us the industry leader in Aluminum Canopies. With Dodge service we quoted 90-100 jobs each month with CMD we now quote 150-170.

Jackie, CMD Business and the Smart Project News Site has connected our Firm to a number of private developers, owners and general contractors that we would have otherwise not known about. Furthermore, the site also lists which contacts are the leads on the projects in the planning phase or on private projects currently out to bid. This is very useful because you have the ability to call the direct line contact for a particular project and open up dialogue and sell your services, as opposed to blindly cold calling a potential client without any specifics on engagements. The research by CMD is invaluable and as a result Maric has secured two new contracts for Plumbing & Mechanical Services for private clients.

My experience with CMD has been a positive from the beginning, which happened to be around the beginning of 2011. We have had subscriptions with other bid platforms, however CMD’s coverage was approximately 30%- 35% more than their competitor platforms. These were projects our company was specified on and were projects we could have missed competing on. In addition, the pre-bid reporting is an excellent tool for projects that are up and coming allowing for a glimpse into the future potential opportunities. The service, response time, and accuracy of CMD has been excellent. I would recommend CMD to any firm looking for a quality bid platform. Megan Davenport • New Business Development/Bid Manager

CMD Connect has been great so far. I really appreciate being able to have my scheduled daily emails being sent to me for my keywords, especially on busy days where I am not able to visit the site that day to view new projects. The site is also easy to navigate through and simple when I need to revise the custom settings on the Project Search Results page after looking at the projects that match my search criteria. I've also noticed that CMD seems to have bid documents available to view for projects that other online search engines may not have, or if they do have, they tend to upload the documents at a later time. Another great thing about CMD is that the account representatives constantly stay in contact with their customers. You have contacted me to see if there is anything you can help me out with, any questions I may have, and I can honestly say you have been contacted me more than any other online search engine has that we have had in the past.

The contact information was more accurate than our previous service and the overall user features were very intuitive and easy to use. We value our relationship with CMD and have even put forth ideas and improvements to their system specific to a major Manufacturer’s Representative firm such as ourselves, and CMD Group has acknowledged the wish list and even begun work towards implementing features we feel will be very beneficial to us specifically and to the industry as whole. Our Senior Sales Rep too, is always available for further discussions and updates and we are very pleased with our overall service and recommend them to both Manufacturer’s and Manufacturer Representative firms in the industry. perhaps a sentence about customer service.
