Start Construction 50% Faster with zipBoard’s Submittal Review & Mark-Up Tool

Transform your design team’s construction submittal process with zipBoard’ digital content review and mark-up platform.

Remove the Frustration From Managing Your Construction Submittal Process

Before a pound of concrete is poured, everything touching your construction project must pass through your team’s meticulous review process. This is to allow your team and external stakeholders to apply the proper checks and balances to allow your project to come together on time and within budget.

The submittal process is key to the success of your construction operation and it’s only natural that it will eventually hit some obstacles. We’ve heard the horror stories – Submittal Reviews starting strong, only to be derailed by a key document disappearing into a pile of unread emails or even worse, submittals that end up passing through the review phase only for an issue to be discovered once construction is underway.  

Luckily, a solid construction submittal process and an easy-to-implement markup tool like zipBoard’s markup and review tool is your best line of defense between your organization’s public image and construction disasters. 

With zipBoard you can enjoy: 

  • Construction submittal roadblocks that are remedied quickly.
  • Finding problematic materials in submittals before construction starts.
  • Avoidance of costly rework jobs.
  • Ensure building code compliance.
  • Removal of email back and forth by centralizing communications.

Highlight, comment, or draw to review any digital document coming across your desk.
