  • A multi-user and shared intelligence functionality
  • Managing and tracking projects across teams

When you click into a project title to learn more, you'll see this handy project notes/ recall feature where administrators of a multi-user team can re-assign projects to different team members. Recall dates to contact architects or contractors can be entered here for example and teams can enter their own project value and project notes here.

Using CIS CRM effectively

The journey from turning opportunities into new business begins with your search profile – setting out clearly what projects your company are interested in. It is important to define and prioritise your profile in terms of the sectors, regions and stage of project lifecycle that present you with the best opportunities.

The full benefit of CRM is realised when it is shared by many users. Sales Managers, directors and others can quickly get an overview of how the company is doing by viewing the open opportunities across the company. They can also check individual key projects to see how they are progressing and analyse projects won and lost. 

Tracked Project

 

This strategic view of the company allows managers and owners to plan for future contracts and adjust strategy and procedures with the full knowledge of the company’s current and past activity. 

Project Detail Stop Tracking

Download our comphrehensive Guide To Using CIS CRM to understand the full benefits of our advanced new system. Single subscription users can start experiencing the improved interface and features by logging into their CIS Online accounts.

How Unverified Commencement Notices Affect Construction Activity Trends

  • What’s really going on the ground are what is predicted to happen cannot be based on Planning Application Volumes or commencement notices
  • You can equate a planning application for 5 houses with one for 5000
  • The Society of Chartered Surveyors in Ireland in their document “Irish Construction Prospects for 2016” have cast doubts on the validity of using published (unverified) commencement notices as a guide to activity stating that there is “a substantial gap between the published commencements and completion data”.

CIS research policy ensures that published commencement dates have to be verified as there is often a significant difference between what is published and what actually happens on the ground. The CIS Research Team have confirmed and verified over €4bn in commencements for large scale projects already this year with a further €2bn+ already confirmed for the latter half of the year.

Increase in Plans Granted so Far in 2015

At the beginning of 2015 CIS published a report highlighting over 500 major/key projects which had either just commenced or are due to start during this year to a value in excess of €11 billion. Since this report, our research team has experienced an overall increase of 29% in planning applications granted for major projects in the first 5 months of this year over the same period last year.

Our estimated value of this 29% increase is in excess of ¾ billion euro. Note that this figure does not include extension of durations. The infographic below illustrates this increase across the provinces.

Confirmed Commencements for Major Projects 2015

The following charts excludes one-off self builds and residential extensions.

Commencements (Value)

 C1

 Commencements (Volume)

 C2

The above verified figures show that the number of confirmed commencements of major projects by CIS for 2015 is already ahead of similar figures for the whole of 2014. The first 5 months of 2015 already shows close to a 170 % increase on the first half of 2014.

Not surprisingly the big increases are shown in commercial and residential. The figures are skewed also by the onset of some large civil schemes  - the Tuam Bypass and the M17 Athenry to Tuam account for over €1b in Q1 2015 while the onset of many of the planned schools bundles and other PPP projects under the NDFA also help to account for the increase in Q2 2015. Excluding large infrastructure and civil projects over €100m which have long time scales, the increase from the first half of 2014 compared with that of 2015 is a more modest and realistic 75% increase on confirmed commencements.

Our highly experienced Research Team at CIS has been tracking and monitoring key construction projects taking place across 32 counties since 1972. We specialise in providing timely intelligence on all projects in great depth to ensure our client have all the information at hand to make the call on securing their next contract.
