This is an intuitive visual that gives the subcontractor and General Contractor a view of how they correspond with each other via ConstructConnect. This is for the subcontractor and our General contractor.
Location for sub = on or in the ITB from the inviting GC
Location for GC = in the private directory
The value provided by the idea:
1) GC only has a single layer of the communication transparency from a vendor - Will Bid, Won't Bid, UnderReview. This idea will show the subcontractor that they can use the system for more than bid response. - More value for the customer. Goal would be to get our users login into the system to send RFI, follow-up, Bid Submission, Prequalification.
2) This is a soft approach to changing behaviors of our subcontractor users - i.e. "waiting till the last day to bid a job", "RFI sent on day after Addendum - linking to the same arch":.
3) INTERNALLY - we can really capture the activity habits of our users. After 6 months we should be able to quantify that Mechanical contractors wait to the day before the bid to turn in bid/proposals. With this data we can target our subcontractors with better communication. OR C4L can have a conversation that talks to the habits of our consumer. Better engagement from our C4L team, this can define a GREAT opportunity to train our staff about construction.
4) Social Media aspect. On the picture, I have a soccer ball. When our user creates a profile we can ask them their favorite past time activity. In the pictured example - a Soccer ball (it could be Target for hunting, fish for fishing, football for football). Any time a user has a 'Great Moment' in our system we can visualize it as a connection to the users favorite past time. Marketing can collect this data for an improved GoToMarket strategy, i.e. if 70% of our users in Atlanta love soccer, we will want to target them with a 'Soccer themed marketing message' or if maybe we host an event supporting the major pastime identified via our user's profiles.
