NEW YORK, Sept. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- McGraw-Hill Construction today launched new features for its highly successful business intelligence tool, Dodge SpecShare® Suite. The platform has been enhanced to enable building product manufacturers (BPMs) to access, analyze and understand their specification share position versus the competition with even greater ease.
Specific enhancements include:
- New market trend dashboards that report historical data over the past three years by geography, building type, ownership, valuation class, and work type
- A redesigned homepage with even easier navigation, faster load times, and links to other McGraw-Hill business intelligence and analytics resources
- Additional exporting, printing and filtering capabilities
"We are very pleased with our customers' reactions to and adoption of Dodge SpecShare® Suite since its launch in February of this year," said Keith Fox, president, McGraw-Hill Construction. "We are equally excited about this latest release that offers even greater ways for our customers to apply the highest quality content in a way that makes it easier for them to generate revenue and gain a competitive advantage."
Pulling from McGraw-Hill Construction's robust, qualified and continuously updated construction project data and analyses, Dodge SpecShare® Suite mines 50,000 project specifications and plans from across the U.S. Users can search for any brand name or building product that appears in a project's specifications to determine who is specifying products from their company, and who is specifying the competition. With this powerful portal, BPMs gain actionable intelligence to grow their market share.
