BuildingConnected allows BC Pro subscribers to privately assign preferred subcontractor companies for their office. This feature is a great way to ensure that your preferred subcontractors are always highlighted in your search results when inviting bidders to projects.
Please note that only members of the project’s office can see preferred companies. Additionally, preferred companies are not visible in the BuildingConnected network.
To designate a preferred company
Start from the bid package under which you’d like to add a preferred company. Click on “Invite Bidders.”
From the list of results, find the subcontractor company you wish to add as a preferred company.
Hover over the “Star” button until it says “Prefer” and click on it.
The “Prefer” button will immediately turn green to indicate that the company has been successfully designated as a preferred company.
Subcontractors are not notified when they are designated as a preferred company. Additionally, subcontractors cannot see that they have been designated as a preferred company.
To remove a preferred company
Navigate to the search results window and find the company you wish to remove. Click on the “Preferred” button.
Next, deselect the appropriate scopes.
Click on “Update.”
The “Preferred” tag will be immediately removed from the company.
As a reminder, only members of the project’s office can see preferred companies. Additionally, preferred companies are not visible in the BuildingConnected network.
