New software improves submittals process

BSD and Kahua have integrated BSD’s automated construction specification- writing software, BSD SpecLink-E, with Kahua’s project management and collaboration platform. This integration streamlines and enhances the specifications to the submittals process and improves the coordination between the architect and the contractor on construction projects. It’s the first collaborative effort in a strategic partnership targeted to help the real estate and construction industry optimize complex intercompany business processes. Because BSD SpecLink-E employs a sophisticated relational database rather than word-processing files, the architect’s submittal requirements are assembled automatically into a Kahua import file that includes the full text of each, organized into work categories. Within the Kahua project management software, the submittals data from SpecLink-E can be expanded to track dates and material selections. Submittals also can be routed via workflow for review and approval. ? (888) 273-7638 à
