All State of Texas agencies, local government entities, and DIR customers in Texas can now purchase the best-in-class electronic plan review applications through e-PlanSoft, based in Irvine, California.
As public and private construction projects continue to recover their footing after the downturn and building permit applications increase nationwide, this emerging product category is one of the most desired solutions in today's information technology procurement list. The DIR TSO-2516 contract will provide access to products for cloud or on-premise deployments and give city and county permitting agencies access to sophisticated, collaborative, web-based electronic plan check tools. Architectural, engineering and construction projects whose team members conduct peer reviews, design-bid-build projects, etc. will realize savings in the significant costs associated with printing, sharing and handling of paper-based construction plans.
e-PlanSoft is a Women-owned and Historically Underutilized Business (HUB) whose sole focus is providing best of breed solutions in web-based electronic plan review software and was founded by architects, engineers and construction design experts from Orange County, California.
The State of Texas Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Cooperative (Co-Op) Contracts program is a streamlined purchasing program created by state legislation in 1989. This critical program leverages the state's purchasing power to negotiate competitive discounts with vendors and suppliers, saving taxpayers money. DIR estimates in 2009 the program resulted in over $1 Billion in Sales, and saved Taxpayers $170 million through their vetting and contract negotiation process to ensure all vendors meet State regulatory requirements to sell products and services to DIR members.
Located in Southern California, e-PlanSoft was founded by award winning architects and engineers with decades of experience in the construction design industry. Our patented and feature-rich products significantly reduce the costs associated with paper plan reviews, increase efficiency, collaboration and sharing and improve turn-around time.
