Since 2001, JBKnowledge has been challenging and improving the way the construction industry employs technology. Our main software solution, SmartBid, has ushered general contractors into paperless bid management and streamlined subcontractor communications. SmartBid now has thousands of GC offices worldwide who use the web-based construction bid management software to simplify their preconstruction process and ultimately win more projects.
However, for years, we have focused mainly on why we believe SmartBid is the best bid management solution for general contractors. We’re now realizing that what makes the software great isn’t the features, functionality, or even our incredible Customer Service team. What makes SmartBid great are the contractors using it every day to transform our built world. After all, it’s not about what makes our product great, it’s about how our product makes preconstruction teams great. In fact, many of those estimators, preconstruction managers, and bid coordinators were great long before they found us, we’re just helping them keep that up. So, we decided to highlight these teams and ways to help better their processes in a unique, creative way…because without the precon team, construction projects wouldn’t even start.
Get ready to see a lot of this message: “Construction Starts Here” which focuses on three critical areas of preconstruction – technology, people and places. We are excited to start showcasing more of the technology that is impacting preconstruction, the people who lead innovation with that technology and the projects nearest you that exemplify leading preconstruction strategy and execution. Be sure to subscribe to our blog to receive updates on exciting things to come, surrounding these topics, including a contest and giveaway to help you champion your precon team!
