Trade Service, San Diego., recently announced that McCormick Systems, Chandler, Ariz., has incorporated into its offering Supplier Xchange, Trade Service’s newest Internet-based database that connects contractors with their preferred suppliers to receive, in real time, customer-specific pricing that may be instantly imported into the contractor’s job estimate.

This new integration gives all McCormick Systems users the ability to streamline their bidding and estimating process by nearly eliminating the amount of time it can take to contact their supplier; request a quote on a list of materials; wait for the supplier to respond by fax, phone, or e-mail; and finally enter the new information to the job estimate.
