NEW YORK, Aug. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, McGraw-Hill Construction Dodge launched Dodge BidPro Mobile App, which speeds and simplifies contractors' access to relevant jobs. Available for Android and Apple mobile devices, the App can be downloaded at Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.mhconstruction.bidpro or accessed on your mobile device via the mobile website at: https://dodgebidpro.construction.com/mobile/default.html. Dodge BidPro is the first-of-its-kind web-based dashboard that pushes the most relevant and timely project data directly to contractors, enabling them to monitor and react to job leads from wherever they are working.
Dodge BidPro extracts bidding projects from the proprietary Dodge database. Composed of 500,000+ public and private projects with 5,500+ updates daily, the Dodge database gathers intelligence from reporters based in more than 80 major U.S. metropolitan areas, tracking projects from early planning stages through construction start. BidPro delivers project information at the key stages for contractors seeking to bid jobs. Projects can be screened—locally, regionally or nationally, and by project type and value, as well as the contractor's specialty trade.
"We have seen a surge of early adopters of Dodge BidPro since its launch," said Kate Cassino, vice president, product development for McGraw-Hill Construction. "Contractors rely on BidPro's quality of information and ease of use. The next generation of mobile features enables them to find jobs and work on bids without leaving the job site. Our customers can remain focused on managing today's business while building a strong pipeline for tomorrow."
BidPro is available by subscription online at http://dodgeprojects.com. McGraw-Hill Construction also offers a targeted selection of timely bidding projects from the Dodge database with free automatic email alerts on bidding jobs of interest. "We know that not all contractors are alike. Some are interested in all projects coming out for bid; others need information on only one or two local jobs, and still others want more lead time and prefer learning about jobs in the final planning stage. We offer our contractor customers the flexibility to get information on the Dodge leads they need while providing the financial flexibility they want," added Ms. Cassino.
