Featured iSqFt Customer — Trav-Ad Signs
iSqFt helped an industry leader expand its services to win a $300K project
WITH NEARLY 40 YEARS EXPERIENCE, top-quality products, and unparalleled customer service, Trav-Ad Signs is a leader in the national signage industry. Their products vary from monument or pylon signs and message centers to vinyl banners, vehicle wraps, and even awnings.
Despite their wide range of expertise, Trav-Ad had never tackled both the interior and exterior signage on an open-bid project.
But recently, with help from iSqFt, they decided to submit a bid that covered both trades—and they won.
With more leads nationwide than any other source and powerful search tools, iSqFt made it easy for Marketing Director Phillip Chenault to find the right project for a combined bid: a new headquarters building for a software company in Huntsville.
And because iSqFt provides an average bid window of over three weeks, Trav-Ad’s sales team and general manager had plenty of time to review the specs and drawings and determine the best possible bid.
Phillip was thrilled with the success, which he attributes largely to iSqFt. “The software headquarters project brought in close to $300,000 for my company, and helped me prove the worth of iSqFt for the next year…and then some!”
Trav-Ad has been using iSqFt since 2012, and it’s paid for itself many times over. Phillip explains how:
Finding More Work
“I’ve been on the site long enough for contractors to know me and send me invitations to bid. I can also search for public projects and evaluate the specs and drawings along with a complete list of bidders. And with the email alerts, I always know when a new project in our trades and service area is posted.”
Bidding on the Right Jobs
“With iSqFt’s project tracking features, I can look ahead for new projects while keeping an eye on current ones, and I can even go back and find out who won the bid.”
Saving Time and Money
“I like the convenience of accessing drawings and specs directly, without having to get them from the architects or GCs. We save the printing and shipping fees, and I can use the time to generate revenue in other areas.”
He sums up his experience with iSqFt, “Without giving away my trade secrets on how I build my company revenue in a free market system, I will say that iSqFt makes my day easier, my phone calls shorter, and my research faster!”
