San Diego, CA — February 1, 2012 — Today Trade Service announced that over 1,000 submittal packages have been created using the company’s newly released product, Submittal Manager. As the only submittal software designed specifically for electrical contractors and distributors, this first milestone signifies not only the industry’s need to drive more efficiency surrounding the submittal process, but also the necessity of such a tool for each and every contractor and distributor.
Submittal Manager allows electrical contractors and distributors to build a high quality, professional job submittal from start to finish. Using the extensive 350,000 manufacturer catalog page library, a user can match a list of items against it to automatically pull in corresponding catalog pages. This unrivaled technology is allowing dramatic time savings. “From what I have seen of Submittal Manager, it will save us over 50% of the time we spend creating submittals. Once I created the first submittal package using Submittal Manager, the next submittal that I created was so easy,” stated customer Jeri Kraus from Helix Electric.
Submittal Manager was released in the spring of last year and it’s adoption within the industry has grown steadily ever since with both contractors and distributors. Direct customer feedback has been the key to making continuous improvements to the product. As Dawn Farrell of North Coast Electric said, “My suggestions have either already been added or are in process. Trade Service has been great about making this even more user-friendly.” At least once a month, product alerts are sent to customers outlining enhancements made, and notifying them of the changes made to the manufacturer catalog page library in order to keep it up-to-date.
