Pacifecon is up to date, accurate, and has a wide range of data overall vertical construction projects – more than their competitors. Pacifecon also has more detailed information over their competitors, which brings better results when using keywords that the NZ market understands around certain disciplines of trades (i.e. Architect, Construction Company/Builder etc.)

The easy ‘simple search’ function and the more specific ‘advanced search’ function allows various ways that you can pull up the same project, giving better access to information on the vertical construction industry, which in turn has allowed us to quote/tender more and achieve greater market coverage and narrow down on project types.

We can easily see if projects we’re tracking are updated and it is obvious to note exactly what has been updated. The friendly customer-support team always spends the time to assist with any questions/explanations and the advantage with the researchers being based locally allows stronger relationships with the market. It also supports the stakeholders of NZ projects by allowing them to achieve the best team for the job by opening information to the whole market.

"With having Pacifecon on board, we can really focus our efforts on targeting specific projects in the niche areas we specialise in – architectural rigging, fabrication and foliage green walls.

Initially we chose to onboard with Pacifecon due to the great user interface, service and results driven team and the complex and substantial research behind the system which is something we cannot replicate in house.

Now we have a number of saved searches within Pacifecon using key words and key clients that are emailed to us on a regular basis, ensuring we don’t ever miss out on an opportunity. Overall, this saves us a lot of time and effort by not having to manually hunt out these projects.

We have increased our network of architects and key project managers significantly by using Pacifecon. I would gladly recommend Pacifecon to anyone in the industry and in fact, have done so already on a number of occasions".

In 2019 Altex Coatings made the decision to subscribe to the Pacifecon new construction project database. We have been and continue to be pleased with the Pacifecon project information on the basis of -

1) The Pacifecon platform provides access to an extensive and in-depth database of new build construction projects.

and

2) The Pacifecon proposal indicated they operate a research team based within New Zealand. We have seen the benefits of this in the width, depth, and accuracy of their project information.

"We compared the results of several different prospect searches using Pacifecon with those of our provider at the time and we found that Pacifecon identified more opportunities, that had more relevance to our search criteria.

We have identified projects, especially at their early stages of development, that we would have taken far more effort to find without Pacifecon.

The interface is easy to use, the filtering system is simple to understand and the results are up to date.

Pacifecon Trainers provided a very high level of upfront assistance when we first subscribed to get all our users up to speed on how best to use the product and the Pacifecon Staff always provide a high level of personal assistance and are very quick to respond when we have a query.

We find Pacifecon is a product that meets our requirements to prospect opportunities with the minimum of effort, packaged in an easy to use and reliable interface."

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!”
