Searching by company details
Searching by company details will return search results which have a partial match to the information you have provided. For example, if you entered GREEN in the Name field, the results will include companies with names like EVERGREEN CONSTRUCTIONS, GREEN BUILD, and GREENHOUSE LANDSCAPING.
You may enter multiple names separated by commas or spaces to expand your search, or within brackets to narrow your search.
You may search by Company ID if you know what a company’s ID is within Cordell Connect. The Company ID is listed on the Company Detail page.
