OAKLAND, CALIF. — BuildSite has announced the release of its freemium edition for BuildSite Submittals. This free Software as a Service (“SaaS”) offering allows for the creation of fully electronic project submittals tied directly to construction specifications.
BuildSite Submittals provides a workspace in which users can check off documents and customize packages of product information. The workspace also allows the incorporation of non-BuildSite documents, such as warranty and application letters, into submittal packages.
Online templates for product data, shop drawings, mix designs and LEED submittals allow the user to generate a Submittal Table of Contents and post it to a unique URL. The result is a complete submittal package in electronic form that can be emailed, printed, and made available online to the entire project team.
“Our customers wouldn’t do their product searches and submittals any other way,” said Ned Trainor, president of BuildSite. “To prove how easy it can be, we thought we’d eliminate any and all barriers to giving BuildSite a try. Now electronic submittals are accessible to everyone.”
BuildSite’s comprehensive database of product and technical information provides access to hundreds of manufacturers in one easily searched location. The database houses over 20,000 construction products from more than 350 manufacturers. Visitors can access over 20 document types, including product data, MSDS, installation details, testing reports, green data and many others.
Visitors to BuildSite who register for the Free Edition of BuildSite Submittals have the option to upgrade to the Professional and Enterprise Editions. These upgraded editions add additional file storage, knowledge sharing, and security to BuildSite Submittals. 2
