BuildSite Launches Mobile Construction Software for Product InformationMobile Web Site Developed in Response to Customer Demand for Mobile Tools (June 09, 2011)
OAKLAND, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/09/11 -- BuildSite today unveiled its mobile construction software at http://m.buildsite.com. BuildSite Mobile provides search and messaging tools to users of BuildSite's construction submittal software. The mobile Web site draws product information from BuildSite's database of over 390 manufacturers and more than 20,000 products.
BuildSite has seen mobile access to its site steadily climb over the past year. Mobile devices using BuildSite.com have increased 28% between December and April of 2011 alone.
"The construction workplace has always been mobile," said Ned Trainor, President of BuildSite. "It made sense for us to develop a Web site that our users can log in to from their mobile phones and tablets. Like other industry leaders, we believe in 'BIM to field' and know that mobile is the platform of the future for construction."
BuildSite's audience of thousands of subcontractors, building materials distributors, general contractors, engineers, architects, and more, access BuildSite Submittals through personal computers and mobile devices every day. Because customers asked for more mobile capabilities, BuildSite developed a mobile site designed to simplify construction product search and messaging of product data sheets, MSDS, and technical information. BuildSite now enables almost any mobile device, including iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry to access tools that make customer communication easier.
BuildSite's new mobile website allows users to:
*Search - access a single source of thousands of construction materials and
hundreds of manufactures
*Find - open pdfs for detailed product data, MSDS, and more
*Add to Package - compile custom packages of product information
*Send - message packages to customers or other members of the project team
BuildSite provides a single source of product information to the construction industry worldwide. The BuildSite database features over 20,000 products from more than 350 manufacturers, along with a Distributor Directory of over 800 locations. BuildSite was honored in Constructech Magazine's 2011 Top Products for its software tools for construction submittals, allowing data from the supply chain to flow into project management and Building Information Modeling (BIM) design models. BuildSite Green Data, a database of environmental and LEED® data for construction products, includes online submittal templates tied to the requirements of the US Green Building Council. BuildSite Mobile brings the BuildSite database to the jobsite. Visit BuildSite at www.buildsite.com.
