Information Management System for Construction Information Services

CIS ( is the leading provider of market intelligence in the construction industry in Ireland.  For more than 30 years they have published a weekly magazine containing market intelligence on all major construction projects in Ireland. The magazine was originally printed and posted to the customer and more recently was e-mailed as a Word document. The next evolution in the product was to make its content available on the Web.


Dovetail built a new web application according to detailed functional requirements, closely collaborating with CIS to build the system. CIS’s customers can now purchase a subscription to the site and access all the information that was in the publication. They also have new features such as integrated maps, saved searches and automatic alerts to projects that match their criteria.
