How e-PlanSoft™'s Electronic Plan Review Saves Time & Money

How e-PlanSoft™'s Electronic Plan Review Saves Time & Money

As a building developer, planner, or city building official, you understand the importance of efficiency in the building plan review process. Traditional paper-based methods can be time-consuming, costly, and prone to errors. Fortunately, electronic plan review solutions like e-PlanSoft™ are revolutionizing the industry by streamlining the process and offering significant benefits.

The Challenges of Traditional Plan Review

The traditional building plan review process involves submitting multiple sets of paper plans, which can be cumbersome and expensive. Various departments must manually review these plans, leading to potential delays and inconsistencies. Some of the challenges associated with paper-based plan review include:

  • Time-consuming process: Reviewing paper plans can take weeks or months, leading to project delays and increased costs.

  • Inefficient collaboration: Sharing and collaborating on paper plans can be difficult, especially when multiple departments are involved.

  • Limited accessibility: Paper plans can only be accessed by one person at a time, making it challenging to work remotely or share information with stakeholders.

  • Increased risk of errors: Manual reviews can be prone to human error, leading to missed details or inconsistencies.
