Bidding process goes digital

The Blue Book of Building and Construction launches a digital document viewer.

10/15/2009


 

The Blue Book of Building and Construction has announced a new, free service designed to help advance the bid communication process for construction professionals. Vu360 is a universal digital document viewer that enables users to easily view plans, specifications, and other documents in TIFF and PDF formats, take measurements, and add comments to the documents. Markups can be shared among the project team, facilitating viewing and response to RFIs (request for information).

Vu360 works with any online plan room (that supports TIFF and PDF files) as well as offline with files on a CD or saved to a computer. The Blue Book designed and developed this complete document viewer specifically for the commercial construction community. Vu360 is integrated with The Blue Book's search tools so users can easily find and spec products, materials, and equipment as well as message vendors.
