Yes, your credit card information is secure on our site. We take privacy and security very seriously. In fact, the security standards that we use are comparable to those used by banking websites. When you input your credit card number and other personal information, we use a sophisticated software program (Secure Socket Layer Technology or SSL) to encrypt or scramble that information before it's sent. If anyone does intercept it they won't be able to read or use it. We use Authorize.net Payment Solutions to process all the credit card payments made through our site. Authorize.net is one of the premier payment processing sites that exists. They offer the highest level of security possible as a Validated Level 1 PCI DSS Compliant Service Provider. EliteProNet does not actually store your credit card information. We pass it to Authorize.net through a secure link and Authorize.net stores it in their secure credit card vault. The only information we maintain is your name, address, phone and email on our accounting systems.

What is the cost of an EliteProNet membership?
This is our most commonly asked question but doesn’t have a simple answer. We do offer basic memberships as low as $59 per month, but the only way to become a premium member of EliteProNet is if you are properly qualified and invited to become a member. In order to do this our Regional Development Consultants have to speak with you and learn more about your company, your licenses, experience and qualifications. Only after you have been properly qualified and if a vacancy is available in your trade and region, you will be presented with pricing options.
What type of projects can I expect to see with EliteProNet?
Approximately 85% of the projects you will see on our project board will be commercial or multi-residential. We focus on identifying bid opportunities that are approved, permitted, and funded. We will also alert you to “Hot Projects.” These are projects that are negotiated or already awarded to a General Contractor looking to hire subcontractors immediately.
Is there any training available to help me learn how to navigate the dashboard?
There are several options for learning how to navigate the EliteProNet dashboard. Before you become a qualified member, your Regional Development Consultant will give you a live demonstration over the phone on navigating your dashboard. This demo usually takes about 7-10 minutes. In addition to your initial demo, once you become a qualified member your Project Coordinator will give you a welcome call at that time they will walk you through our system in much more detail. During that call they will also discuss projects and bid opportunities that are ideal for your company. You can also check out our automated dashboard demo in our Knowledge Resource Center (Coming Soon).

How does EliteProNet help me land more contracts?
The first step in landing more contracts is bidding. That part is up to you, what EliteProNet will do is provide you with plenty of bidding opportunities every month.

I’m a General Contractor, how can EliteProNet benefit my business?
As a General Contractor, EliteProNet is a valuable resource to obtain new subcontractors and suppliers for your projects. It is absolutely free to post your projects and receive bids from our qualified members.
How is EliteProNet different than other “lead services”?
EliteProNet is similar to other construction lead services in the fact that we have about 80% of the same construction projects listed on our project board plan room as you’ll see on any other major lead source. But the similarities stop there. EliteProNet is the only service in the industry where you work with a dedicated Project Coordinator (PC) throughout the entire bidding process. Your Project Coordinator is constantly seeking out new bid opportunities and providing you with the most accurate and up-to-date information available. With EliteProNet we provide access to the project plans, specs and addendums on 100% of our projects. Your Project Coordinator will also contact owners, developers, architects and project managers on every project once your bid is prepared so that we can submit it to the complete GC bid list.
Who is EliteProNet?
EliteProNet, whose name is derived from Elite Professional Network, is an exclusive nationwide network of qualified Subcontractors and General Contractors. EliteProNet is highly regarded as a trusted leader in delivering project information and marketing services throughout the United States. Founded in 2008 and headquartered in West Palm Beach, Florida, EliteProNet's network is comprised of over 700,000 construction companies and suppliers, including over 40,000 registered Subcontractors and 6,000 General Contractors.
How does EliteProNet work?
EliteProNet is an exclusive network. We will not work with under-qualified subcontractors. We want to work with only the best… the Elite. In doing so we limit the number of clients we represent in every region and every trade. We will only represent a maximum of 5 subcontractors in each trade per geographical territory. Our primary objective is to help subcontractor clients acquire more business while also helping General Contractors connect with quality subs. We accomplish this by identifying as many construction bidding opportunities as possible in every market we service. From there we match each registered subcontractor with projects that meet their needs based on project type, size, location and trade. We supply all the important information needed such as plans, specifications, addendums and bidding general contractor information. Once you have created your trade specific bid proposal, EliteProNet delivers your bid to all the relevant bidding contractors, ultimately getting your bid in the proper decision maker’s hands. From there our Project Coordinators do all the follow up necessary to assist you in getting timely feedback with the goal of getting our clients awarded as many projects as possible.
