• What make us different from other lead services?
The Rose Report only focuses on criminal justice projects. County and State Jails, prisons, juvenile centers, federal courthouses, work release centers, etc.
The Rose Report is supported in large by the criminal justice architects; who want a reliable source to report their work to the industry. We are also notified by County and State purchasing agencies to help them distribute information about their projects; as well as searching the State and County websites for invitations to bid and upcoming project information. We are also involved with various web crawlers that search out public project notices and report back to us.
The personnel that make up The Rose Report have been employed within the detention industry for over 20 years and over that time have developed relationships with the architects and contractors in the industry. We understand the various stages a project must go through before it ever hits the streets for competitive bids and we track these projects through and report on every stage, including bid results after the fact.
Because we only report on criminal justice work, we don’t need a huge staff with a lot of overhead. We do one thing which allows us to be the best at tracking criminal justice work.
Think of The Rose Report as an arm of your marketing department; not just as a lead service. Remember, we are making the phone calls and tracking the jobs for you. We know what you want to know. Put that time consuming task on us and you can focus on things like getting approval packages out and ordering plans and lining up vendors and bidding work!
If you hear about a job and we don’t have it, we will drop everything, track the details down and get the information to you. Again, think of us as an extension of your own marketing department.
The Rose Report’s minimum subscription term is 6 months. We also have 12 month subscription options available.
The Rose Report sends all of its reports out via email on a daily basis. The contractor’s service is delivered via a Microsoft word attachment and the bid schedule is delivered in a excel spreadsheet attachment not requiring any special software. The architectural service reports are delivered via an Adobe acrobat attachment.
The Rose Report sends out updates daily as soon as we receive the information from the architect. The full Rose Reports are sent out the same way. A weekly bid schedule for the contractor’s service is sent out every week. A prospect summary for the architectural service is sent out monthly.
A Full Rose Report breaks out the detention equipment specification and the security electronics specification. We tell you what contractors are approved to submit bids and what material suppliers are specified for each section.
The Rose Report does not believe in “locking” anyone into a subscription contract. If you get two or three months into your contract and realize it is not giving you the benefits you expected, just write us a letter informing us that you wish to cancel your subscription. If you have a prepaid subscription, the remaining premiums on your subscription will be refunded to you. We want our subscribers to be satisfied.
YES! We give every potential customer a two week free trial subscription to evaluate the service. There are no “hard sell” tactics involved. We send you an email notifying you a week before your free trial ends thereby giving you another week to decide if you wish to subscribe or not. If we hear from you, GREAT!, if we don’t then we hope we were able to provide you with some beneficial information anyway.
We have found that word of mouth is the best advertising! Most of our subscribers come from referrals of existing clients and are made up of criminal justice architects, detention and security electronic contractors, detention equipment and electronic suppliers as well as general contractors and construction management companies that focus on criminal justice work.
