Our Updated ALERTS system

Organized Labor and Management: Get the information you need now and make sure your colleagues can, too! With CDR’s new ALERTS system, the latest information about permits pulled in your area by specific contractors or owners can be dropped immediately into your and any designated colleague’s inbox, allowing you to take immediate action.

As you may already know, raw, unprocessed data from all available sources in your area is displayed daily on the “Data Portal” and allows you to access new permits and records. This allows organizers and other staff the opportunity to plan their day or week with the latest information in mind. For example, if you see that a building permit has been issued to a specific general contractor for work that you hope will go to one of your member contractors, you can approach that general with this information in mind.

The ALERTS system builds on this immediacy of data by sending you an email when a certain project, owner, contractor or address is issued a new permit. You simply create and save a search and designate yourself to be notified. And NOW you can even designate the appropriate colleague or staff to receive this information. It saves steps and expedites your communication process.

CDR in 2017

Our research and analysis techniques continue to ensure that our clients are best prepared to meet the challenges the year brings, armed with the most up-to-date and pertinent data available about their specific market.
CDR has been in business for more than 23 years and we continue to change with the times (well, when it comes to social media, a bit behind the times). There is no doubt that 2017 is shaping up to be an interesting time for labor unions and management and we are excited to become part of the conversation through LinkedIn and on our new blog.
