1ST Pricing’s BIM Window & Door Toolkit for AutoCAD Nearly Triples Number of Quotes in First Month Since Launch

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

JANUARY 6, 2005: Signal Hill, Calif. – 1ST Pricing (www.1stPricing.com), a Southern California-based technology company providing practical solutions to the building industry, tripled the number of priced plans and total building materials quoted during the first month since the release of their downloadable plug-in for AutoCAD®, AutoCAD Architectural Desktop™ and Autodesk Map 3D®. Previously, the technology was only available in TurboCAD.

In November 2004, 1ST Pricing™ provided quotes for 172 sets of plans in California alone, up from 67 in October. The increase in quotes translated into an even greater increase in the total number of products quoted. In November, more than 1500 windows were quoted, a 500 percent increase over the previous month.

"Our simplified BIM process saves both architects and contractors a great deal of time," says Douglas Lopez, president of 1ST Pricing. "As a general contractor myself, there is no way that I could read and quote 172 sets of plans in a month even if the architect provided complete and accurate information."

1ST Pricing’s free software creates a detailed bill of materials including real-time, comparative pricing from numerous manufacturers combined with pricing and an online fulfillment capability to support it. AutoCAD is the most used architectural computer aided design program (CAD) in the home building industry. 1ST Pricing is an Autodesk® Authorized Developer.

 "We automate the entire process including specifying products directly on the blueprints with competitive line-item pricing, online review & fulfillment and jobsite delivery" Lopez explains. "We provided detailed, comparative pricing on over 1,500 windows without any additional demand on our staff – it is exciting to see this industry transforming technology in action."

A free download of the Window & Door Toolkit for AutoCAD, AutoCAD Architectural Desktop and Autodesk Map 3D is available at www.1stPricing.com. The pricing service is also free.
