What is eTransmittal™?
eTransmittal™ falls into a new category of AEC software called "document transfer technologies." eTransmittal™ simplifies, streamlines, and automates the exchange and tracking of architecture, engineering, and construction (A/E/C) documents, and is particularly helpful for sending, receiving, and tracking large-file-size documents such as CAD drawings. This Web-based software tool allows A/E/C firms to quickly, easily, and securely transmit and track large files of any type (CAD drawings, PDFs, MS-Word documents, photographs, etc).
eTransmittal™ is an affordable, more functional, and far more secure alternative to transmitting large documents manually (by courier or shipping); by email (which can't accept large file sizes and has no tracking functions); and by ftp sites (which often are difficult to use, and provide no tracking, and little to no security).
Because eTransmittal™ is a Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) productivity tool, all that's needed to use it is an Internet connection and a Web browser. There is no need to install special software or hardware on each user's computer. The system works for PCs and Macs. Browsers supported by eTransmittal™ include: Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Chrome, and others.
eTransmittal™ solves a very real problem in the A/E/C arena, which is the need to quickly, easily, and securely transfer large files – among geographically dispersed project team members.
