Testimonials & Partners

John Paul construction are members of CIS since their foundation in 1972 and continue to use the CIS System as the industry leading source of reliable and quality information. Our long relationship is testament to CIS for their continued innovation and excellent quality of service.


Acheson & Glover have been clients of CIS since 1998. We use their service to gain access to reliable, researched information that enables us to generate new business and guarantees we are aware of all projects relevant to us throughout Ireland. By availing of the multi-user system, it enables multiple departments to project trends by sector and access accurate data at a productive cost.


Extremely beneficial in helping us

At Emtek we offer our range of products and services in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. We have found that access to the CIS information has been extremely beneficial in helping us to identify and win important contracts over the last 11 years. We find the CIS service to be cost-effective and reliable, and their Online Database is easy to use and ensures that we don’t miss out on any potential opportunity in our sectors.


A very useful tool

I’ve been using CIS as a market data source for the last few years.  I find the software user-friendly and the report generator very useful.  The data is input in a timely fashion and overall I find it a very useful aid to running my business.  It’s a very useful tool for long-range planning and tracking projects as they progress.


A reliable source of all construction project activity

CIS is an excellent service for any company that want a reliable source of all construction project activity taking place around Ireland.  With a few clicks we can identify new projects planned, projects granted and projects that are ready-to-go at advanced stages and on-site.  The reporting function on the website allows us easily extract key project information.  CIS has been very beneficial to our business.


Proven to be successful

We signed up to the CIS online service earlier this year to enable us to pinpoint exactly where the opportunities were emerging in the recovering construction sector.  CIS hasn’t let us down in this regard. The simple to use search function makes it’s very easy to identify upcoming projects and the weekly email alert makes sure that even when we aren’t logged in the CIS service is working for us in the background.  So far the CIS service has proven to be successful and I believe it represents great value for money.


An invaluable tool

Sika Ireland have been using the Cis Report successfully since January 1995. We now have a multi-user subscription, allowing us to delegate our sales team with upcoming construction projects that could avail of our product range. Every six weeks, I bring our team together for a ‘CIS Day’ where we study the CIS Online database to identify new opportunities.This allows us to track all opportunities across our five Business Units. The CIS system will continue to be an invaluable tool to our ongoing sales strategy.


A valuable resource

Having the CIS service has proven itself to be beneficial to our company over many years.  We find it a valuable resource in helping us identify viable tender opportunities at an early stage.  The search function allows us to analyse the potential market by sector, stage, location, construction cost and much more. Having the reporting function also makes it easy for us to extract project details and circulate to key staff within our organisation.  All in all CIS is a very good service.
