FAQ: How to Utilize eSuite
With eSuite, architects, engineers, contractors and construction managers alike can simplify project management. By eliminating unnecessary communications and printing, Alabama Graphics’ eSuite services can streamline public and private bidding processes.
If you’re currently using email, fax, hardcopy or FTP sites to manage your projects, it’s time to consider utilizing eSuite. Not only is it easy-to-use and packed with industry-leading capabilities, but it will also reduce printing costs, bid time and errors. Our eSuite service has three different components—eDistribution, OpCenter Build and OpCenter Share.
This component of eSuite is key to simplifying project management. It provides project managers, architects and contractors with easy access to essential documents anywhere and anytime. The secure Web server can host all of your images, contracts and videos while protecting them from corruption. Likewise, its user-friendly interface allows contractors to use their Alabama Graphics account or a credit card to order all the necessary documents to present a proposal for your project. Lastly, eDistribution allows you to notify multiple contractors and provide all the necessary information to begin the bidding process. Depending on your role in project management, eDistribution provides varying benefits. Learn more here.
