WHAT IS CCD?
Here is a short list describing CCD’s privileged information sources:
Construction and investments reports
CCD publishes a comprehensive list of projects in Canada, featuring information on commercial, industrial, institutional, multi-residential and civil projects; whether for construction, modernization or major supplies. This database is consulted by a client base comprised of architects, engineers, contractors, manufacturers and distributors of products and services.
Stemming from various sources, the information received from CCD is both verified and considered true and correct for publication. In spite of these precautions, errors of human interpretation are regrettably possible and inevitable. In such cases, CCD will only assume responsibility for the necessary corrections, upon receipt of written notice concerning the errors in question. Note that sources will not be revealed, as some information received by CCD is confidential.
CCD is a global tool, designed to support your whole sales force at the prospecting level! Whether you refer to these data reports as “leads, scoops, or helps... you’ll be surprised and impressed!”

The founder, then an engineer and speaker on electrical management systems in industrial settings, builds Prebid @ in computerized format, using MS-Excel for his own needs. Through necessity, he seeks pre-bids for upcoming projects. He then establishes his own network of industry contacts and resells this information to selected clients.
