What can the StandardSHARE planroom do for your projects?
Our systems are ideal for your projects. In conjunction with the printing services of Standard Digital Imaging we will employ our online plan room StandardSHARE to facilitate increased project awareness and accessibility resulting in a greater competitive bid response.
StandardSHARE is an online plan room designed specifically to act as a resource for the construction industry to learn of bidding opportunities. With a growing membership of industry professionals, StandardSHARE has a wide reach for the promotion of your projects. Depending on project load we will send out a newsletter at least twice a week informing users of new projects just released for bid. This newsletter has become a valued resource to many in the community as it is actively bringing opportunities to grow their business.
Users of the site can access basic details about the project including the viewing of the drawings at no cost to them. StandardSHARE does not charge a membership fee to view the projects. With StandardSHARE a bidder can view project details without any party (you or the potential bidder) spending a dime. This alone cuts down the need to produce a dramatically large number of deposit sets.
Once the potential bidder has an understanding of the project and has decided to prepare a bid – they will have the options of requesting a deposit set, purchasing hardcopy prints or downloading the project directly from the site. StandardSHARE has one upgrade option to the free membership – this is called the BlueLINE Club. With no contract term or cancellation / set up fees a user can add the BlueLINE Club option to their membership for $35 a month. This allows them to download all project files you supply for distribution as well as the ability to access and download every other project on the site with available content. The $35 is not a project specific cost.
In a public project bidding opportunity it is essential to promote the project to the community and provide the most reasonable open access to the project yet still have tracking control to handle special announcements like addendums. StandardSHARE with the experienced team of SDI provide exactly this functionality.
When there are a limited number of deposit sets available or none at all – potential bidders that want to become involved will search out the most economical way to learn of the opportunity. If they cannot find one they may elect to not pursue the project. StandardSHARE comes in and allows that potential bidder to access the plans at a cost they can agree with – free!
