A Quest for a Better Way
While the basic bidding process for construction didn’t need reinventing, the construction professionals at QuestCDN experienced first-hand the challenges and difficulties of effectively posting and retrieving critical project information, reducing administrative costs, and communicating effectively with bid participants with last minute addenda. With extensive background in the construction industry, our founders assembled a team of leading software engineers and graphic designers to construct a radical and innovative bid management SaaS (Software as a Service) tool to maximize efficiency and communication. The result is the Quest Construction Data Network.
Providing Key Solutions
QuestCDN was designed and developed to digitize, automate and perfect communication and effectively serve as the information channel between the owner (or owner’s soliciting agent) and the entire participating bidder community. Since it’s launch in 1999 Quest CDN has grown to become the premier construction data network in the United States, alleviating frustration and providing key solutions to the industry such as:
- Reducing the amount of paper used for construction plans and specifications
- Lowering the cost of distribution for construction bid documents from both providers and bidders
- Combining the bid process into one easy-to-use system
- Enhancing communication to improve collaboration between prime bidders, their subcontractors and material suppliers
The Partner Approach
As true believers and proponents of the partnering concept, our founders established QuestCDN based on the collaborative partnership with the A/E/C community, providing them the opportunity to adopt and implement this powerful secure communication methodology. The alliance has not only saved the A/E/C the tremendous expense of developing their own digital delivery systems, but also opened up additional resources to redirect toward other value-added client services.
The Quest to Always Get Better
Over the years, QuestCDN has saved clients millions of dollars thanks to our never-ending strive for excellence in improving the bid management process. Our continual investment in research and resources ensures you get the best possible bids quickly, securely, and cost-effectively.The resent addition of our VirtuBid (vBid) secure online bid submission facility essentially completes our bid management functionality and completes the assurance of best bid potential for the project owner.
