Pittsburgh, PA (Vocus) August 26, 2010
Tech Unlimited, Inc., the company that developed PlanSwift, the easy-to-use construction takeoff software program, announced today a partnership with SMARTBIDNET, a construction bid invitation and bid management software solution that allows general contractors to manage their entire bid process online.
“While PlanSwift provides the industry with an accurate and cost-effective takeoff and estimating solution, SMARTBIDNET provides the bidding management, plan distribution and sub prequalification piece making it a logical choice for a partnership,” said James Purpura, COO of PlanSwift.
Through SMARTBIDNET, a sub contractor receives a bid invitation and can submit a proposal after downloading supporting plans and project specs. From there the general contractor can compare bid proposals, view a project’s history and statistics, and prequalify their sub contractors all online. Also, simple forms allow automatic bid invitations to be sent out and stored in one secure location.
“Our job as solutions providers is to make things as efficient as possible for our users. We are partnering with PlanSwift to create one integrated platform, where users can get their bids done without having to continuously switch between software and programs. PlanSwift is a great estimating and takeoff software and we’re excited to provide it for our users,” said James Benham, President of SMARTBIDNET.
“PlanSwift is the tool needed to provide the features to create precise material takeoffs and estimates, also in one centralized location. With SMARTBIDNET, both of these tools make the bid and estimation process a seamless one right from the start,” said Matthew Miller, Director of Marketing for PlanSwift.
“We think both PlanSwift’s software users and those of SMARTBIDNET will see the immediate benefit of this collaboration and we look forward to the future of this partnership.”
