As part of our client services, we maintain an exclusive and comprehensive database. This database is accessed though our online Portal. The content of the database is updated on a daily basis, ensuring currency, accuracy and relevance of all data at all times.
Our portal is accessible through most modern web browsers on a wide range of devices, including, but not limited to, desktop PCs, Macs, tablet devices such as the Apple iPad, Android based devices and Unix/Linux based systems.
The user interface is simple by design, inducing a gentle learning curve, allowing users to swiftly adapt and start utilising the invaluable information available.
Our portal is exclusive to our clients and hands-on training is provided to all clients when they join or whenever they need assistance. Client organisations receive as many user accounts as they require, and each user is entitled to relevant training.
In addition to viewing the content, clients have access to pages from which they could provide direct feedback to marketers, contact professionals, generate and email themselves reports, save notes for future use, and more.
Professionals and Projects
The portal lists hundreds of professionals and associated projects, in each region we serve. Professional company name, professional type, address, contact persons, email addresses, phone numbers and associated project details are some of the information you could lookup. You could use each of these fields to search for professionals from an intuitive search page. For instance, you could narrow down your search to display architects located in Bankstown. Similarly, project searches could be narrowed down to as specific as the address of the project site.
Google map intergration allows you to locate professionals and projects on the go, from within the portal.
We strongly believe in accountability, thus we have included a section within the portal where clients are able to view statistical data presented in tabular and graphical layout. The data presented on this page is exclusive information displaying field sets such as the number of leads produced, types of leads produced, number of meetings conducted and more. Note that all this information is exclusive, pertaing to the client, and is by no means generic information relevant to all clients.
The reporting section of the database is updated, on a daily basis, with leads, project details, feedback and other relevant information gathered through meeting with professionals, regarding the products we market for each of our clients. All this information is transformed into cleanly formatted Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, personalised for each of our clients as leads and weekly reports.
All our clients receive these personalised leads reports continuously throughout each week. Clients could receive a number of unique leads reports each week. In addition to leads reports, a weekly report, is generated and sent to each client on a weekly basis. This report consists of all personalised leads, comments and feedback on each meeting of the week, generated separately for each client.
