This alliance will allow RCD to provide even more up-to-date information for critical infrastructure projects that will help our subscribers win more business and help the states ensure that they are reaching as many prospective bidders as possible
Norcross, GA (Vocus) July 29, 2010
Reed Construction Data LLC (RCD) and Info Tech, Inc., (Info Tech) today announced an alliance to offer RCD subscribers project information, plans and specifications from the Iowa, Michigan, New Jersey, and West Virginia Departments of Transportation (DOT).
Info Tech is the leading provider of hosted Internet bidding services through its Bid Express® service, and serves 35 major state agencies and a growing number of local agencies. Launched in 1997, the Bid Express Internet bidding service has reliably handled billions of dollars annually in bid submissions from thousands of bidders, greatly reducing both the effort and risks associated with the old-fashioned paper methods.
Info Tech will electronically provide real-time data to RCD for inclusion in RCD’s Reed Connect™, Reed Bulletin ™ and SmartProject News™ platforms. All RCD subscribers currently receiving DOT project information from these states will receive data from the Info Tech service at no additional charge.
“This alliance will allow RCD to provide even more up-to-date information for critical infrastructure projects that will help our subscribers win more business and help the states ensure that they are reaching as many prospective bidders as possible,” said Jane Rafeedie, Vice President of Data Acquisition, Reed Construction Data.
Info Tech and RCD expect this alliance to expand significantly over the coming months, adding additional state agencies and additional content to the automated feed.
“We see a clear benefit for the agencies and the contractors with this alliance,” said Joe Phelan, Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Info Tech. “Agencies can feel confident that their bid notices and documents are reaching a wide audience, and contractors can feel confident that they know about every project available for bidding from that agency.”
