The American Reprographics Company (ARC), Glendale, Calif., and BuildPoint Corp., Redwood Shores, Calif., recently announced a marketing partnership that will provide customers with online tools for both construction project bidding and plan management. The companies plan to offer customers direct, two-way access between their Web sites, which will combine bidding, qualifying, and tracking bidders with access to plan updates and changes.

Users of BuildPoint’s bid management tools will now be able to designate ARC’s PlanWell online plan room to organize, store, and track plans. When plans are posted to the plan room, potential bidders receive email notification of the bid opportunity from BuildPoint and a link to a Web address where they can review and order plans from any ARC reprographer location.
