Latest enhancements focuses on improved bid invitation processes, batched document downloads, enhanced collaboration, and easier project notifications.

NextPlans, a provider of construction project management software, announced a series of enhancements and updates to the NextPlans system.

"We are always soliciting feedback from our users," said Zane Sharpe, Vice President of Sharpe Images. "Our development team responded by delivering a range of enhancements to the NextPlans system that will increase users efficiency and collaboration,"

The recent upgrades included:

  • Easier Bid Invitations - Not only can users respond to a bid invite via email (accept and decline), but they now can respond after logging in to the NextPlans application. When they log-in, users are now are given the opportunity to accept or decline from the start page.
  • Batch Document Downloading - Last year, NextPlans provided users with the ability to batch download project documents instantly. We have extended this to give users the ability to batch download multiple discipline folders, or an entire project.
  • Re-sending of notifications - Users asked for the ability to re-send notifications to project team member, and now that is available.

"NextPlans is a very flexible system, and our users consistently find that they are able to significantly improve their project performance by using the tools we provide," Sharpe added. "This latest upgrade will provide even more tools to help our customers successfully deliver projects."
