Submittal Logs Module Added to ArchAdministrator - Database for Architects

BLOOMFIELD, NJ, October 11, 2001 -- PS Software Solutions announced today that it has fully integrated a fifteenth module into its increasingly popular software program, ArchAdministrator. The new Submittal Logs module has been designed to simplify the task of recording, organizing and tracking submittals that have been received for review and/or distribution by the architect.

The user can create a submittal log record for each received or requested item specified in the construction documents. Each submittal log can be associated with a specific project, specification section number, title, and detailed description. The Submittal Logs module has been specifically designed to do the following:

* automate creation of submittal logs that can be tracked/printed
* simplify sorting of submittals by specification section, date, project, etc.
* automate creation of detailed tracking history for submittal items
* find & display submittal logs based on a variety of search criteria 
* organize requests, replies, reviews, distributions, required actions, etc.
* notify user of "open" submittal logs and tracking history items
* automatically create/print transmittals based on submittal tracking logs
* provide a database of default specification section numbers and titles

An unlimited number of submittal logs can be associated with each submitted item. ArchAdministrator allows the user to delineate the following:

* whether item an has been received by (or sent to) a contractor, consultant, etc. 
* to whom or from whom the item had been sent/received 
* the action required of the architect, consultant, contractor, etc. 
* the quantity of (and date noted on) items sent/received 
* the name of the employee who logs the tracking item
* whether the item is considered "Open" or "Closed"; and much more.
