eBid Systems Receives Constructech Magazine’s
2009 Vision Award

Seattle, WA – September 25, 2009 – eBid Systems announced today that it was recently honored as one of Constructech magazine’s 2009 Vision Award Winners. eBid Systems received the Vision Award for its work with J.M. Coull, a Massachusetts construction company.

The Constructech Vision Award honors companies within the residential, commercial, and heavy construction industry, that have realized the advantages of applying innovative technologies to their everyday businesses as well as the technology enablers that have helped them achieve their goal.

“In today’s market, construction companies must face new challenges head on, and bring customers the most affordable, quality product they can. This goal can be achieved with the use of the right technology solutions,” said Mike Carrozzo, chief editor, Constructech. “The companies named as Vision Award winners recognize this necessity, and have become more successful as a result of implementing technology.”

“eBid Systems offered exactly what we needed, a largely customizable, internet?based solution that would not only allow us to manage document flow, but our entire bidding process,” explained Andrew Coull, president of J.M. Coull. “Prior to introducing eBid, sending a project out to bid took at least a full day. We are now able to do this within one hour.”

J.M. Coull uses eBid Systems’ pre-construction bid management Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, eBid eXchange – PreCon Edition, that serves as a centralized and easy-to-use software system for bid invitation and document management. J.M. Coull’s estimators, purchasing managers, project managers, suppliers, and subcontractors can now collaborate through a web portal that enhances communications, document sharing, and creates an audit trail of system transactions.

“We are pleased to have a close working relationship with companies like J.M. Coull that have proven the value of our eBid eXchange system in streamlining their pre-construction processes for subcontractor pre-qualification, bid invitation, and bid document management,” said Keith Jones, President of eBid Systems. “In particular, J.M. Coull has provided us with invaluable feedback and recommendations on system improvements that has allowed us to continually enhance the capabilities of our eBid eXchange offering. We have been providing services to J.M. Coull for three years now and look forward to a long-term business relationship in future years.”
