IRONSPIRE ENHANCES PRIMESITE PROJECT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM.

IronSpire, Inc., a leading supplier of Web-based collaboration solutions for the construction industry, has introduced Precision X-DOC(TM), an enhancement to its PrimeSite(TM) project management system that enables online bid management with electronic data transfer into Timberline Estimating. Precision X-DOC's integration with Timberline Estimating minimizes data entry errors and compresses the time from bid to award, allowing contractors to handle more bids and widen the invitation to bid to a broader spectrum of contractors.

PrimeSite's X-tensible Document Management system supports customized data capture, enabling data in Precision X-DOC to be mapped to each customer's unique implementation of Timberline Estimating. The specific data collected, and how it is mapped to data fields in Timberline Estimating, is defined for each customer using PrimeSite's X-tensible Document structure. The actual bid items are managed per project.

Bid Management enhanced for both PrimeSite and JobSite

In addition to PrimeSite's automated data mapping with Timberline Estimating, both PrimeSite and JobSite, IronSpire's ready-to-use project management system, have been enhanced to offer IronSpire Bid Management. This allows potential bidders to log onto the contractor's bid center, where they can review and download the bid package, drawings, and specifications. Prospective bidders can also browse through the already answered questions in the Request for Clarification area, or pose a new question.

"Contractors have an immediate need for tools that handle the information flow for bidding," said Craig McClure, president of CreativeWare, a Timberline Solution Provider in Phoenix, AZ. "Too often we hear about the fax machine clogging up at bid deadline. Now contractors can take control of who they invite to bid, what they see, and how the bid information will be submitted."

"Bidding will never be the same again," stated Robert Ellis, president and CEO of IronSpire, Inc. "Our bid management capability allows all bidders to have access to all information. Contractors get a high quality bid and can streamline the data transfer into their analysis package."

Price and Availability

IronSpire's Bid Management is available immediately as a project extension for all customers of IronSpire JobSite and PrimeSite. Precision X-DOC is available within 60 days to IronSpire PrimeSite customers. Pricing for Precision X-DOC is based on customer requirements.
