Online submittal tool
Submittal Manager is an Internet-based software tool that allows users to build professional-looking job submittals. The software is also a time-saving application for users who are asked to take on the entire submittal building task for their contractor customer or to provide assistance in obtaining hard-to-find/custom pages or lighting configurations that are created at the manufacturer website and saved as a pdf. Featuring a library of 250,000, up-to-date manufacturer catalog pages, robust electronic mark-up tools, and other user-friendly conventions, the product can also electronically match a user’s parts’ list of several hundred items to corresponding catalog pages and then instantly load them into the submittal.
