'I appreciate the amount and quality of information on each project, especially the commercial projects'

Magdalena Krzyzynska, Business Development Manager at Knauf

Knauf Insulation has been a client with Pacifecon since 2013

“I have used Pacifecon in both my current and previous workplace and I have always found the quality of information provided and how much information it contains to be exceptional.  I also like the fact the researchers are local and based in New Zealand and if I have further queries they are always ready to assist with more information.

I find the system easy to use with ease of access via my phone when out visiting customers or on my laptop and the subcontractors and main contractors details are very useful.

The National Construction Pipeline Report, Market Watch and the Top 200 Builders Reports are a big advantage and have been an invaluable tool that are very informative.

I appreciate the amount and quality of information on each project, especially the commercial projects”.

‘Pacifecon has introduced me to many more key people’

Brenda Harrow, Business Development Consultant at Window Treatments

Window Treatments has been a client since 2014

“We  were referred to Pacifecon by another user  and found the information in the reports so  current and informative.

What I like most about Pacifecon is having the ability to keep my notes together in one place and being reminded by outlook to follow up at the right time! Our service is always at the end of a project, but the earlier stages of planning and tendering are very important to ensure we are included in the Commercial projects, if required? Pacifecon has introduced me to many more key people in such projects.

Also, having the ability to search for a project via various mediums, if at first you can’t find it one way, e.g. by street, Builder, Architect, Project Mgrs or Developers etc.

Being responsible for the South Island, it enables me to categorise via region and help the other Consultants/branches outside of Christchurch.

In Canterbury it allows me to group projects, won or lost via a Consultant. I am now working on these reports and marrying these up to our own internal diary.

As some Canterbury projects are looked after by Builders and Architects nationwide, having access to the nationwide list, enables me to communicate with the most relevant person on this basis.

I have found that as a result of subscribing to Pacifecon, I am more organized and “on to it!”

A stand out is our Account Manager Bronwyn, who has been so helpful in both training and obtaining the most relevant information for projects pertaining to Window Treatments.

I like reading the Pipeline reports.

Pacifecon is my “Bible” because it keeps me focused, tells me who to target, and provides the reporting facility I need, thus - the best CRM tool I have ever used!”

'We are all busy people and the quality of the leads from Pacifecon are excellent. I am able to provide early insights to our sales team on future developments, which makes them a trusted information gatherer with their customers'.

Andrew Hawkins, National Specification Manager at NZ Brick Distributors

NZ Brick Distributors with 2 end Users

“We are in the process of building our Specification Sales structure at NZ Brick to include our brick range and lightweight cladding system. We previously had a “lead” provider who provided very generic invitation for discussion, and not the specific leads that I believed we needed. I approached Pacifecon after a positive experience at my previous role and they were very supportive. I am able to provide information about projects and contacts involved in the projects on Pacifecon. My role is all about getting Specifications for our products and being knowledgeable with the Architects and Designers; Pacifecon gives me the right information at the right time.

We are all busy people and the quality of the leads from Pacifecon are excellent. I am able to provide early insights to our sales team on future developments, which makes them a trusted information gatherer with their customers.

I like the fact that you can tailor the results to suit your own requirements. You can make it as simple or as complex as you want to. The reports and the information that you get are informative and most important, timely. I am able to engage with the Architect or client at the right time and talk to them about the timescales involved; that way I can approach them exactly when they need to specify our products on the project.

If I am having trouble finding something, although it’s very rare, it’s good to know that the Researchers are local, and they get onto it straight way. The more I get into the information, the more I am going to find that I will need information very early and being able to ask the Researchers will be a benefit in the future.

Pacifecon is easy to use on my phone and ipad too. I needed information before I went into a meeting and used my phone, went onto the Pacifecon website and got the information that I needed!

I’ve used a lot of systems over the years, and I find Pacifecon a lot simpler and more user-friendly. As a user of over 5 years now, I see that the relationship with Pacifecon will continue to grow.”
