SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- Jun 19, 2014 -- Informative Graphics Corporation ( IGC®), a leader in document viewing and collaboration technology, today announced a strategic marketing and exclusive development initiative with Avolve Software Corporation to further enhance Brava!® Enterprise for ePlan review within Avolve's flagship ProjectDox® ePlan solution. The companies will use their collective expertise to innovate features that will make it easier for customers to view and manage building plans, documents and other types of building data within established and future design, construction and regulatory review business processes.
ProjectDox is the most widely utilized ePlan regulatory review system for state and local government, with over 100 municipalities throughout the United States and Canada. ProjectDox allows citizens and city staff to initiate and complete the building plan submission, review and approval process online. Jurisdictions using ProjectDox report up to a sixty percent (60%) increase in overall efficiency compared to traditional, paper-based review processes.
IGC's Brava Enterprise is embedded in the ProjectDox ePlan review solution for viewing, annotating and collaboration on multiple document file formats, including native CAD drawings. City and county plan engineers simultaneously mark up and reference specific building codes using the integrated Brava tools, adding direction and clarity to any issue. Brava enables plan resubmissions and newer plan versions to be compared with previous submissions for a faster approval cycle.
Planned Brava enhancements for ePlan business include functions for quickly checking, flagging and denoting building code issues, metadata optimization and management, and more. New features will be fully integrated into ProjectDox workflows to create a truly unique and highly-efficient business solution that reduces both the time and the cost of regulatory approval and project management. This enables businesses to go to market faster, and jurisdictions to generate property and sales tax revenues sooner.
"Avolve Software has proven expertise, evidenced by their large install base of ProjectDox. We are excited about their product roadmap and process efficiency enhancements," said Gary Heath, IGC CEO. "This is a great opportunity to work with the leading domain expert in this space to build a much more powerful system for the ePlan market."
"Our customers require an increasing level of sophistication and functionality when it comes to planning and managing their built environment and related information," said Ron Loback, President and CEO at Avolve. "With this vital initiative we plan to leverage that position and continue to set ourselves apart from our competition, delivering incomparable value to our customers," he added.
