CONCIERGE SERVICES BRING ADDED VALUE TO AKA MEMBERS


The Blue Book Network’s Concierge Service in- cludes a team of project communication spe- cialists who assist architects—from finding qualified contractors to ensuring that project status updates are well-communicated. The service saves architects time and money.

your pages and when. The


ProView program is not intended to replicate an architect’s website, but to augment it; to give the thousands of monthly visitors to thebluebook.com a reason to click through to


that architect’s site. “The clicks into our ProView page are going up by 400-500 a month and the traffic to our company website has gone up be- cause of the ProView portal,” Parish says.


Here is an example of the potential value. Imagine that you are on the school board for a school district in Columbus, Ohio, and you’re wondering which architects are adept at school design in your area. By going to The Blue Book Network’s website, you can put in your specific parameters and find the companies best suited for your work. Or perhaps you’re a Project Manager of a design-build firm needing an architect to design a new shopping center, municipal complex, or loft condominiums. Searching thebluebook.com will tell you exactly which firms have the qualifica- tions to best serve your project. There is no way for an architect to know the program’s potential value without joining AKA to see for themselves.
