Jul 28, 2011

NORCROSS, GA (July 28, 2011) - Reed Construction Data (RCD), a leading North American provider of construction information, today announced the release of SmartSpecs Mobile, giving SmartSpecs customers the ability to access targeted construction project leads from any smartphone.  SmartSpecs Mobile is RCD’s first mobile offering, providing manufacturers with the information they need, in the format they want. 

SmartSpecs delivers customized leads based upon brand name, company name, or competitor name - streamlining the specification process and aggregating detailed project information from RCD’s database of construction projects.  SmartSpecs Mobile is compatible with all smartphones, including iPhone, Blackberry, and Android platforms.  The new mobile site is optimized for browsing and includes the ability to perform a Quick Search, which leverages keywords to quickly locate specific projects. 

“The easier our information is to use, the more powerful it becomes for the manufacturer,” said Rich Remington, CTO and VP of Product Management and Development, Reed Construction Data.  “Being able to access the information you need when you need it from the device you choose is crucial to our client’s ability to be proactive.”

Mobile site access comes standard with all SmartSpecs subscriptions for both new and existing users. Customers can go directly to the site or click a link from a SmartSpecs e-mail to view new or updated project information.  The new mobile site integrates seamlessly with the existing e-mail notifications which ensure customers are always aware of project updates, bid dates and new opportunities.
