Mercury’s Digital Plan Room

When you post your plans and specs to a secure, private on-line plan room, you can:

  1. Manage and track your project plans and specs. Find any plan at the click of mouse (and never lose one again!)
  2. Manage and tracks the users of your project plans and specs. Know who got what and when
  3. Allow users to order prints and arrange their delivery. The reprographer does the printing and distribution
  4. Compile a historical record. Archive your plans and specs as documents are added to the planroom. Close the job and the archive is finished (no “after-the-fact” archive compilation)

Simply provide Mercury with project plans and specs (electronically or in paper form) and indicate how you would like them organized – we do the rest.

Mercury’s Invitation to Bid

Mercury’s Invitation to bid (ITB) is one of the most convenient, easy-to-use online tools for facilitating the Invitation-to-bid (ITB) process. It turns your Internet browser into a time-saving and hassle-free system for managing your bidding tasks. It allows you to send hundreds of ITBs via email or fax, right from your computer. Plus bidders can preview plans and specs and indicate their interest in your projects, from a single bid invitation. It’s the key to ensuring your ITBs are as complete as they can be.

Turn your Internet browser into a time-saving and hassle-free way to manage all of your bidding tasks:

  • Lower your pre-construction costs.
  • Dramatically reduce time and labor for you and your bidders.
  • Be more competitive by receiving more bids.
  • Bid on more projects.
  • Track your bid responses easily and conveniently.
  • Keep all your contacts in one convenient location, organized by trade, geographic location, or whatever you wish.

Assemble all project information once and for all bidders and all broadcasts:

  • Outsource document management and production – let Mercury manage your plans and specs and let your bidders view and order plans online through our Planroom.
  • Broadcast all emails and faxes at once – no more standing around at the fax machine for hours or needing to make tons of phone calls.
  • Track successful and failed invitations in real time – Mercury’s ITB tells you when an email or fax wasn’t received, so you can update contact information as it’s needed (not when it’s too late).
  • Save your bidders time and effort – one email allows recipients to read the project description, view the plans, and respond to the invitation. With our ITB, a sub-contractor or supplier can decide whether or not to bid on your job in 30 minutes or less, without a trip to your office or the local planroom.
