The Blue Book of Building and Construction (The Blue Book) is expanding its reprographer network nationwide and adding new functionality in order to facilitate communication of project documents. In order to accomplish this, The Blue Book built new functionality into the company’s online bid management system, BB-Bid’s Private Online Plan Room. The “Invitation to Print” feature allows BB-Bid users such as general contractors and developers the ability to assign their own reprographer or add reprographers from The Blue Book database to their project’s bid invitations and private online plan room. This enables these users to establish multiple printing locations for their invited vendors within the project’s vicinity, enabling same-day ordering and pick up. General contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers can send a Print Request message to the reprographer directly from the project’s plan room, which will include the PDF files of the requested documents. BB-Bid users can generate detailed reports identifying visitors and the documents they viewed, downloaded, and ordered.

Contractors Register Inc., P.O. Box 500, Jefferson Valley, NY 10535; 800-431-2584; 914-243-0287; www.thebluebook.com
