Constructionline

Constructionline

The CAI has partnered with Constructionline to offer members discounted access to millions of pounds’ worth of live contracts out for tender throughout the UK. Constructionline has developed a new platform designed to connect ‘supplier’ companies with ‘buyers’ looking for contractors and subcontractors. It’s a simple premise: the buyer posts the contracts available and searches through the database of accredited supplier companies for appropriate contractors to invite to tender. The whole process is greatly speeded up as supplier members can store the majority of information needed for the prequalification process on Constructionline’s highly secure database. Details of industry accreditations, liability insurance, financial references etc. are all held centrally in its real time, dynamic, verified database and only need to be supplied once. The uploading process has also been made easier as documents can now be placed in the system as a client’s time allows, perhaps over several separate visits to the Constructionline site. The system is particularly beneficial for smaller contracting companies, allowing them to compete on a level playing field with larger organisations who may have dedicated bid writers. For the buyers, the attraction is the easy access to a range of suppliers whose details and accreditations have already been checked and verified.

As well as direct online access to new business opportunities, Constructionline offers a wealth of ‘Meet the Buyer’ events across the country and a calendar of information and learning events including Continuous Professional Development events and training from industry experts. Through our partnership with Constructionline, we are able to offer our members a 15 months for the price of 12 – that’s equivalent to a 25% discount on the first year of membership - a low-cost and low-risk way to fully investigate the opportunities available.

Constructionline is the largest and most lucrative business-generation platform for SME contractors in the UK construction industry and is a widely recognised resource for the UK construction industry, providing unparalleled opportunities for service providers.

Reportcam

Reportcam
Apps Etc has announced the launch of ReportCam, designed for use by aerial riggers and building companies to create and send instant, video-based reports.

With just a couple of clicks the App creates and sends a video-based report, including a location map, time and date stamp and sender details. The Report is automatically uploaded and stored on a secure server and alerts are sent to nominated recipients, instantly giving them a link to the report.

It’s an easy, effective way to deliver inspections, and to notify others when an incident occurs.

ReportCam founder Tod Yeadon said. “We want to give riggers a practical, effective way to manage incidents, prove compliance and prevent disputes and misunderstandings. Available from January 2018, an exclusive free version will be available to members of CAI to generate awareness of the app within the industry.”

So how will this work? An email or text message will be sent to members, giving a link to download the app onto Apple and Android phones and tablets. Then it’s simple to register and start using the app… and it will work even when there is no network coverage, so you can use it on every job.

“It delivers details of any issues to show to customers, even if they are not there at the time, and proof in case you need it at a later date”, said Yeadon, “in a way which ordinary video does not because these reports show time and location details and are securely stored where they cannot be edited or tampered-with. And users can re-brand the reports with their company logo, so it’s a lot more professional than email attachments or social media tools.”
