Seeking a Smart solution to target new Private opportunities.
By early 2016, Happ Builders needed to target potential new clients more aggressively. Matt Happ, owner of Happ Builders, says that he came to the conclusion that the company's lead acquisition strategy needed a re-think.
"With our focus set on new business, I decided that switching services was the right approach. We had experimented with a few other services out there but we saw little improvement in the amount of high quality hard-to-find Private projects like Restaurants, Car Dealerships, Strip Centers, Office Buildings and Churches. We received calls due to word of mouth but it wasn't enough."
Sourcing fresh Private leads in an easy to use interface was one of Happ's main objectives. They were already paying for several other Lead Service companies to help them achieve this and they just were not seeing positive results.
"We knew that we needed to look at other providers to power our new strategy, so we began the search. We started looking at the main players in that space and heard that the former owner of BidTool, Jim Lamelza had started a new service in the Chicago area called DataBid and we were hearing some really positive reviews from everyone we spoke with."
"After evaluating several options, the choice became clear and the DataBid service won out. Happ Builders signed up in early 2016. lt really was an all in one solution, was the most intuitive and seemed best placed to give us what we needed."
"The online reviews we read all pointed to DatBid being the best solution for us. It has everything we need. It saves us time, it's extremely easy to use and most importantly, it informs us of tons of projects that otherwise we would have missed."

DataBid's Private Reporting Team
The DataBid Private Reporting Department calls on nearly every single Owner, Architect, Engineer, General Contractor and Property Manager to confirm what they have in the works. DataBid will seek out Office Buildings, Restaurants, Strip-Centers, Condos and Bog Box projects like Wal-Mart and Target. You name it... DataBid is looking for it!
When DataBid finds a Project they don't just stop there. They obtain key info such as estimated amount, square footage and additional details. In most cases you will see more information on the project in DataBid then you would if you got it directly from the owner. DataBid follows up on every single project in their database every day to see if there are any changes or updates on bid dates, pre-bid meeting info, additional bidders, bid results or awards. In fact, over 70% of the Bid Results are reported within 24 hours of the due date!
Since partnering with DataBid, Happ Builders has made some amazing gains! They've been able to get in with key Owners and get added to "Invitation Only" projects by identifying these while in the Early Design Phase.
"We're very satisfied. DataBid is improving its product all the time and is very in touch with its customer's needs. I would recommend the service to any contractor looking for Private Projects."
"The returns we get from the DataBid service make it a must-have for our business."
