Reed Data Product Announces New Online Format
(Press Release) Norcross, GA, August 31, 2010 — RSMeans, North America's leading provider of construction cost data, today announced that its industry-leading cost data books are now available in a flexible, online format - a complement to RSMeans traditional print and CD formats. RSMeans cost data provides construction professionals with information and tools to quickly and accurately estimate the cost, size and duration of commercial and residential construction projects.
The new online titles allow customers to access their data from anywhere on the Web, customize their online cost books and save changes, and share estimates to collaborate with team members.
"Each RSMeans online Cost Book is filled with detailed information that serves as a base for creating accurate cost estimates and provides a better understanding of the materials, time and type of labor required for the job," said Daimon Bridge, Director, RSMeans. "Making this information readily available online was the next natural step in the evolution of our products."
RSMeans online cost data allows customers to view the title or titles they've purchased in traditional 16-Division or new 50-Division CSI format. To further benefit from this information, customers can configure their subscription to include the Construction Cost Estimator which adds access to RSMeans' powerful estimating tools to customize, save, share, or export estimates with ease and avoid the need to create or update cost estimates manually.
