ProTenders empowers construction companies to go mobile

Karim Helal, Co Founder and CEO,, the U.A.E based e-bidding and marketing platform for the construction industry has launched the mobile version of its Company Profile product to help businesses find the right partner and increase their bottom line. The mobile optimised directory is a first for the region and demonstrates ProTenders ongoing commitment to delivering usable B2B services that can be accessed from anywhere on any device at any time.

“ProTenders is a platform that has been used by banks, developers and consultants from 2009 to process bids worth more than US$12 billion. Our new mobile Company Profile product now enables our customers to consolidate their search and engagement activities in one platform, and at their convenience” commented Karim Helal (left image), CEO and Co-Founder of ProTenders.

To date, more than 18,000 companies have profiles on ProTenders, and the site attracts more than 100,000 page views per month. Companies who actively maintain their profile and take the time to fill in comprehensive information, receive four times more profile views than others.  Information fields include a company description, business activity, team members, qualifications, certifications and a list of projects, all presented in an easy to use visual format.  Multiple data points allow clients to search by greater levels of detail to identify the right partner for them in a fraction of the time; for example, it is easy to retrieve a list of all piling contractors who have worked on hospitality projects in Dubai with a value of over $100 million in just a few clicks.

Searching for the right construction partner and subsequently engaging with them has traditionally been very time consuming, as it requires a lot of information collection from different platforms. Digital penetration in the construction sector is quite low, and third party directories, both free and paid do not adequately represent the most important information that clients need in order to make an informed decision.
