CMD has upgraded its Forecast, Analyze and Intelligent Leads products on its Insight platform. The new version includes enhanced search capabilities for more than 800,000 construction project leads, easier grids to compare data, in-depth filtering and a fully integrated and interactive Google Maps feature to pinpoint job opportunities.
"Our Insight platform provides customers with value-added features to make their jobs easier and to help them find the best construction job opportunities faster,” said Jennifer Johnson, CMD vice president of product and development. “Additionally, the new filters and search features help our clients seamlessly identify the best targets in their markets."
The Forecast product, designed to allow users to see detailed views of construction activity — including historical data, current-year projections and a five-year forecast — now shows “percentage change” between periods. Selecting this feature in the data grid displays year-over-year or quarter-over-quarter changes to quickly identify construction trends.
Analyze, designed to track specification share among competitors, offers new construction stage and customer admin features. The enhanced project stage filter allows users to filter project results by planning, bidding, post-bid and more. Customers who are designated “customer admin” also have access to assign searches to other users on the same customer account.
Leads, which provides information about commercial construction projects from inception to completion, has five new project filters and now integrates with Google Maps. The new project filters include postal code radius, number of floors, floor area, document type and project status to help refine searches and pinpoint specific projects.
