Before the telephone there was the telegram. Before email there was snail mail. Before the instant message there was the phone call. None of these innovations came about on a whim. They were direct responses to a need, a need for efficiency. And just how RSMeans Online was our response to an industry need for efficiency, we have taken the next logical step: Alerts.
Changes in the market directly impact construction costs. Accordingly, RSMeans continually tracks and researches material, equipment and labor costs with particular emphasis placed on those of a highly price-volatile nature. Now with the new Alerts add-on feature, RSMeans Online users will be able to know that a price has changed the moment we do.
It’s simple. Once users create a custom set of alerts specifying construction material, equipment and/or or labor of their choosing, a notification is sent when a change in pricing has occurred.
With the Alerts Creation Wizard, users can set up notifications to be sent via email and/or within the RSMeans Online web application. The frequency of notifications can further be customized to: daily, monthly, quarterly or annually.
