Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) April 4, 2006
e-Builder has launched the e-Builder Wireless Edition, an enhancement to its current flagship product, e-Builder Enterprise. This new wireless service enables BlackBerry® connectivity to meet the communications needs of A/E/C professionals spending a significant amount of time in the field. Registered users can receive electronic forms and information through the BlackBerry device, and reply to, close, and add comments to these forms directly from the BlackBerry.
This added capability will allow users to receive and process information from any location, thereby reducing the time needed to respond to requests like action items, correspondence, submittals, transmittals, RFIs, etc. This further helps e-Builder users meet tight project deadlines. Jon Antevy, e-Builder CEO, said “we continually strive to promote the benefits of technological innovation to the A/E/C industry. While the construction industry must deal with tight deadlines and increasing costs, e-Builder is providing the technology to offset these challenges through improved efficiency and collaboration.”
Requirements are simple: a Java based BlackBerry device and an active email address associated with the BlackBerry device is all that is required (support for the Treo is expected in August as well). Individual users will be able to purchase the service in quarterly or annual installments, while groups can benefit from volume discounts available for 10 users or more. The program will be in beta until August 2006. BlackBerry® is a registered trademark of RIM Ltd. (http://www.blackberry.com)
