Offline Construction Project Management vs Digital Submittal Workflows

Surprisingly, many construction companies are still creating a disorganized, paper-based system when it comes to submittals. Clunky printers, copiers, and hand delivery of hard copies are slowing down projects and eating into profits, leaving a path of inefficiency and inaccuracy in their wake.

Details which are handwritten are at risk of being lost, misplaced, or overlooked. Searching through paper files isn’t a quick and easy way to find information, nor does it allow you to conveniently compile your data to gain actionable insights.

The companies who switch to an electronic construction submittals system often find themselves at an immediate advantage, particularly in how they can streamline administrative processes without cutting corners.

The submittal process itself is an essential piece of every project for ensuring timely, accurate delivery to the client. Using specialized software for construction submittals makes the work far less time-consuming and complicated, especially when many stakeholders and participants are involved. Buildingblok’s workflows increase effective collaboration and decreases the possibility for errors.

Streamline Efficiency with Software Solutions

Submittals will affect the cost, quality, schedule, and overall success of a project for better or for worse; ensuring an efficient, precise outcome is too important to leave to chance or outdated project management methods. This is why many companies use construction submittal software to help to close the gaps left behind by pen and paper systems and provide a more sophisticated level of functionality.

Buildingblok’s construction submittal software does exactly that, creating a richer project management experience and giving you greater control of each project’s unique tasks.

Track Submittals from a Single Source

Too often, project management becomes synonymous with document management, and you spend valuable time and resources chasing files, making copies, and updating records by hand.

But when you have all your shop drawings, submittals, and transmittals in one place, you’re better able to use the information you collect to develop insights and find information quickly. There’s no chance of papers getting lost or details falling through the cracks, as everything you need to know is stored digitally.

Reduce Costs

One of the most immediately-realized benefits of using software for construction submittals and transmittals is a significant decrease in distribution costs. Making multiple copies for contractors, subcontractors, structural engineers, consultants, the architect, and the building owner can get expensive, especially when you factor in delivery.

On average, each spec on a submittal has roughly eight items, each of which has about two to three pages’ worth of data. This means that a single submittal can be anywhere from 16 to 24 pages, plus a cover page.

To make costs even greater, submittals often require some back and forth between parties, which can equate to multiple changes over the course of the process. Even a single error can be enough to warrant a reprint, creating project delays and additional costs.

Using submittal software, changes can be made with a second’s notice without incurring additional printing or delivery costs. Because information is updated in real-time, you can trust that you’re seeing the latest version of a document. And since users can access the same set of data via the web app, there’s no need to print and distribute hard copies.

Increase Efficiency

Using our application as a single resource for all related project information, submittal information can be reviewed and approved easily. There’s tremendous value in utilizing software that retains the quality and integrity of a project. Companies can improve work performance in multiple avenues, which may naturally result in cost-savings and quicker, simpler sharing information between other teams involved in the project.
