Irvine, CA – September 22, 2015: e-PlanSoft™, a leading provider of electronic compliance plan review solutions, today announced that U.S. Patent No. 9,135,602 was issued by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for its patent application entitled, “Management of Building Plan Documents Utilizing Comments and a Correction List”.
This new patent relates to technology that enables users to upload their standardized comments to a Standard Comment Library provided in the software. The Standard Comment Library then allows users to apply filters to that data to narrow results by project type, discipline code, etc. as well as to perform keyword searches. A user may then insert these standard comments into their project/review document. The software also automatically controls how each review comment is grouped and sorted on the correction report that is returned to the customer – in addition to tracking the approval/decision status of each comment. Additional technology allows users to filter review comments by department, reviewer, discipline code, disposition status, submittal, plan name, etc. – whose results can then be used to generate the correction reports.
“This newly issued patent further strengthens our position as a leader in electronic plan review solutions. Our vision is to provide governmental agencies and the AEC industry software that not only integrates to their permitting, land management, and project management applications, but includes singular emphasis for comment management and ease of use,” said Leon Kotovich, COO of e-PlanSoft.
