DataBid provides GTA suppliers early information to win specification opportunities



GTA Construction Report special feature


DataBid gathers information with reporters and a live editorial department to provide a comprehensive database with in-design and planning information about the pre-construction phases of GTA-area public and private construction projects.


The secure on-line service provides clients with direct access to project owners, allowing industry professionals to manage and access critical project information through the entire design process.


SP Stalls & Storage supplies lockers, washroom equipment and accessories, mailboxes and other Division 10 (a catch-all category referring to products ranging from signage to electric hand dryers to termite control devices) products. CEO Sharon Gauther says her company has used DataBid for about a year now.


“DataBid allows us to find out who the architect is and who the owner is,” he said. “It gives us access to projects for tender at the architectural stage which allows us an opportunity to get our products specified.”


Gauther adds, though the company quotes on 10 to 15 jobs daily, this early access and securing product specification means contractors are more likely to use their products. “We’re very competitive when we tender and offer good products and a wide selection but getting in as a specification can make a huge difference, and DataBid allows us to do that.”
