People Also Ask:

What is an example of civil construction?

Civil construction is both heavy-duty and basic projects. Projects can include city structures and public buildings. The larger, heavier structures of civil construction can encompass dams, water treatment plants, levee buildings, and railway systems.

What defines a supplier in construction?

A construction supplier is a firm that operates a warehouse, store or other establishment where supplies, materials, or equipment required under a construction project contract are stored, bought, and sold or leased to the public in the traditional course of business.

Who are the subcontractors in a construction project?

A subcontractor is a party which agrees to perform all or part of the requirements of another party (main or prime contractor) under a separate contract with the construction project employer.


MatConnect is a tool designed to help suppliers and contractors manage materials more efficiently. This tool allows users to input data regarding the material being supplied, which makes it easier to prepare and email material quotes for any construction project.

Using MatConnect, suppliers, and contractors can optimize the quoting costs of materials to help reduce costs and improve efficiency. SharpeSoft’s MatConnect offers a level of visibility that can help reduce downtime, reduce overall costs, and increase project efficiency.


SubConnect is designed to help construction subcontractors manage their operations. This tool makes creating and emailing proposal files to prime contractors more streamlined and precise for subcontractors.

SubConnect allows subcontractors to manage all aspects of their proposals within one platform. This includes tracking the time workers put in on a project, monitoring the progress of the project as a whole, and managing the financial aspects of the project. This level of integration can help subcontractors save time and reduce errors, ultimately leading to increased profitability.

MatConnect and SubConnect Integration

One of the unique aspects of MatConnect and SubConnect is that they are designed to work together seamlessly. While both tools can be used independently, integrating the two allows for an even more efficient project management experience.

Suppliers can track the delivery of materials to a project using the two tools together in real time. At the same time, subcontractors can prepare, create, and email more accurate material quotes and project proposals to prime contractors.

Furthermore, both MatConnect and SubConnect can also integrate with the SharpeSoft Estimator. As a result, suppliers and subcontractors can adjust their project plan on the fly, ultimately leading to a more streamlined and efficient project.

Benefits to the Construction Industry

By using these two tools together, construction industry players can benefit in a number of ways. The biggest benefit is the improved efficiency that comes with streamlining processes. This includes more accurate tracking of materials and personnel, which can help reduce downtime and ultimately lead to cost savings.

In addition, the integration between MatConnect and SubConnect can help foster better communication and collaboration between suppliers, contractors, and subcontractors. This can lead to more effective project planning, reduced errors, and better outcomes.

Training and Support

Our certified and experienced team of support and training professionals works with your teams at every project stage. From initial setup to utilizing the software to its full potential, we provide personalized guidance and support to ensure your success with the product.


Overall, MatConnect and SubConnect are two highly effective tools that can help streamline and improve the management of civil construction projects. By allowing suppliers, contractors, and subcontractors to optimize their processes and improve communication, these tools can help reduce costs and improve project outcomes.

As the construction industry continues to evolve, it's clear that tools like MatConnect and SubConnect are becoming essential for those who want to remain competitive and successful.
