Increase business with a telesales firm who really understands construction


That’s CMS ... an entirely construction-based team of telesales experts. Our two directors, for example, each have over forty years in construction. Our team are construction people, ranging from a former site manager to those with decades in building industry sales.

That means we are uniquely qualified to work with you and to help you succeed.

What we do:

We make contacts – lots of them – that help you win the contracts that give you best margins. Do you simply need more enquiries or tendering opportunities? Or maybe you want to sharpen your focus on the right kind of jobs? Or perhaps move into new areas of business? CMS' expert team can help, working with you either in your office or from our own offices.

What we give you:

    Industry expertise – All our people are construction first and telesales second. We know the industry, know how it works and speak the right language
    A total focus on profitable work – We are commercial too; and focused on your profitable growth. We take time to understand what jobs suit you and we target those. Our time is used efficiently to win the work you really want
    Unique flexibility – If you only need gentle growth, you can have as little as two days per month. Or you can have more time – as much as you want. Or even just a one-off campaign. You only pay for what you need and there are no long-term commitments.
    Total commitment – We really do become part of your own team. Our commitment to you goes beyond the days we are contracted for. We will take calls and respond to opportunities at any time.

Our resource at your disposal:

    Our sales data – our database contains details and personal contact information for over 17,000 companies in the construction industry. That’s over 600 larger builders in London alone with over 2,000 personal contacts.
    Planning and project leads data – good information on the 2,000 plus planning applications that are dealt with every week is essential to our work – we have a long-standing relationship with Planning Pipe which gives us a unique understanding of how to get the very best from them.
    Contract award and tendering data – we also have access to over 200 tenders and over 150 contract award leads every week across the UK


Testimonials


"CMS have certainly helped us to expand our company. David has helped us to focus on our target market and to bring tenders in which are completely relevant to our current capabilities and specialities.

This in turn has enabled us to win projects that are much larger than we would have hoped 5 years ago and has driven an increase in turnover as a result. We would have no hesitation in recommending the services of David Crick and CMS."

Tom Rose
Partner, David Rose Construction


"When we first met we jokingly said that if you got a tender in within the first two weeks we would buy you Champagne! Well, considering you did achieve that with the Lewisham tender [£1.1m 12-flats conversion] please see the attached photo of your reward waiting for you in the office when you're next in!"

Steve Janeway-Smith
Operations Director, Decorean Ltd


"It is with great pleasure I write this letter of recommendation for Julian of CMS who has been working with us as a Business Development Manager for the last 2 years.

I can state with confidence that Julian is a motivated and responsible person with a high degree of integrity who managed to increase our turnover substantially in the time he worked with us.

We would be more than happy to reemploy him should the need arise."

Lisa Matraxia
Financial Director, Roma Marble


"Danny did exactly as he promised and he did it in a perfect way. Now we have plenty of contracts. Your services were exactly what we needed."

Dumitru Costin
Director, Doublefit Ltd


"I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at CMS for their support and help over the last number of months and in particular Guy for his excellent work at generating additional leads and contacts for our business."

Kenneth Morley
Director, SM Utility Services Ltd


"We have been working closely with CMS for a few years now and have found them to be extremely professional. Their understanding of our business has resulted in an increase in our turnover and we would not hesitate to recommend them."

Lee Simpson
Managing Director, SCM Ltd


"As a small business we really appreciated the time CMS took to understand our expectations, limitations and strategies before they put together a marketing plan for us. The pitch they developed is strong and easy to follow.

David and Stuart struck just the right balance of being both a support and a guide throughout. We are excited to be working with them."

William Gaze
Managing Director, William Gaze Ltd


"David Crick’s experience and professional knowledge of the construction industry has turned our business round. We have improved the size of our projects, improved the quality of the projects and more than doubled our turnover. These results speak for themselves."

Steve Fry
Managing Director, Broadway Construction


"As a business trying to grow, CMS have been very valuable to us for introductions to new clients and getting tenders to come through. This gives us time to do what we do best. In the past our marketing had little result because we didn't have the time to follow things through. 

We're not large enough to justify a full-time business development manager, so using CMS on a part-time basis has worked very well"

Tim Gibbons
Managing Director, Unity Electrical Ltd


"Within three weeks of beginning to work with CMS we began to see new tenders for various projects from multiple companies. Once we received one tender, then the same companies would then send us multiple tenders, some as many as two/three a week and these were coming from many different companies.

I am still finding it hard to believe how many new companies are sending us tender documents for pricing.

Using CMS is probably the best thing I have ever done to expand my business."

Jason Davenport
Managing Director, JCD Electrical


"We have marketed ourselves in many different media but none has proved as successful as telesales made by David Crick. We have quoted in excess of £5million of new business directly as a result, exceeding the value of quote work arising from all other marketing opportunities combined."

Mark Styles
UK Managing Director, Thomann-Hanry


"David Crick really turned our business round with his professional, persistent and productive marketing work just two days a month. His skill in nurturing long-term prospects right through to tender stage and beyond have proved invaluable to our business. We would strongly recommend the services of David and his team."
