SILVER SPRING, MD — BizMat Inc. has launched an online "Expert Advice" service that provides business advice (accompanied by business tools and resources) to the owners and key decision makers of construction and contracting related businesses, via an interactive, online session.

According to Tom Couvillion, BizMat's construction and contracting relations manager, “Unlike other advice-based websites that simply gather the business owner's name and phone number, and then supply the information to an outside party, BizMat actually provides resolution to the business person's problem, upon conclusion of the online question and answer session. All advice, resources, and business tools are specific to the contracting and construction industry.

“Industry feedback has been terrific and we've been contacted by several companies to begin offering our business services to their targeted base of clients. For example, Duron Paints & Wall Coverings, headquartered in nearby Beltsville, is interested in helping its loyal base of contractors improve their profitability, and is sending people to our online service directly from their company website.”

BizMat is a spin-off of BusinessMatters Inc., which started delivering business outsourcing in the early 1990s. BusinessMatters has licensed BizMat to adapt business tools for on-demand, automated access over the Internet. For more information, visit
