GREENVILLE, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Gordian Group, a leading provider of construction cost analytics and estimating information, pricing data and procurement software, released a major update to its groundbreaking RSMeans Online cost estimating software, its second significant upgrade in 2015.
“RSMeans Online is the fastest, easiest, and most customizable way to access any current or historical construction data,” explained Greg Hanson, Gordian’s Vice President of New Business and Product Development. “Subscribers can quickly look up individual items, create estimates, customize assemblies or building models, or develop entirely customized cost databases in any zip code or nationwide.”
The Gordian Group is committed to continuing development and enhancement of the RSMeans Online platform to provide contractors, facility owners and managers, architects, and engineers with accurate, dependable, and up-to-date construction data, tools and features that respond to the needs of customers.
The RSMeans Online version 6.3 upgrade introduces new application functionality and improves features for collaboration. Most importantly, the update delivers the first phase of key building blocks—new notification features and permissions-based estimate storage for collaborative estimating—that will serve as a cornerstone for the product’s future development.
New or enhanced features in RSMeans Online version 6.3 include:
- A new user-defined Notification System alerting users when data updates occur or when other users make changes to collaborative estimates.
- Improvements to the Customized Assemblies tool to allow modified assemblies to be saved as favorites for future use, a feature previously available at the estimate level only.
- An improved free trial allowing up to ten users to evaluate the full range of collaborative functionality available to subscribers.
- A new capability in Advanced Reporting that allows the import of graphics—such as company logos for a branded estimate—at the estimate level and on editable templates.
This powerful RSMeans Online update gives owners, developers, architects, engineers and contractors the tools and information they need to build competitive cost estimates, including customizable options to create solutions that will best meet planning, budgeting and estimating needs.
