RCD and LCAs Integrate Plans and Specs with Reed Connect, Canada’s Largest Database of Project Leads

Nov 29, 2011

MARKHAM, ON (November 29, 2011) – On November 30-December 2, 2011, Reed Construction Data (RCD) along with Local Construction Associations (LCAs) will be celebrating the official launch and monumental achievement of integrating digital content from the Associations’ planrooms with Reed Connect at the Construct Canada 2011 Expo in Toronto (booth #814). 

For the first time ever, RCD has aligned with LCAs in Ontario for the purpose of providing efficient bid notifications and related services to the entire construction industry.  Both association members and Reed Construction Data subscribers will get unprecedented access to construction opportunities.  As part of this alliance, RCD now offers plans and specifications within its web-based project delivery platform, Reed Connect — resulting in a centralized location of pre-bid and bid information with digital plans and specs.

“Our collective reach to construction buyers and bidders in Canada is unparalleled with this alliance,” said Mark Casaletto, Vice President and General Manager, RCD Canada. “This not only strengthens our efforts, but also provides the platform to forever improve how construction procurement is done in Ontario.” 

Reed Connect links construction professionals in Canada and in the U.S. with the most active collection of public and private construction projects available.  Additional offers include customized search capabilities, e-mail reminders, bid calendars, systems to find and manage contacts, and integrations with any CRM or SFA system.  The new release of Reed Connect also includes several feature enhancements, giving customers greater control over the way they search and track projects.
