Building Systems Design
Building Systems Design Inc. has announced the availability of a cloud-based version of its flagship specifications product, BSD SpecLink-E. Dubbed SLE Cloud, this software service has all the advantages of the SQL Server database product that thousands of users have already installed on their local- and wide-area networks, with additional benefits attributable to Internet access. The product was released in conjunction with the national convention of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) in Chicago. Because all the software is installed remotely, subscribers to the cloud-based version can access BSD SpecLink-E from any device that provides Internet access. There are no known firewall issues, and multiple users can easily collaborate on any project. Another major advantage of is that all hardware, software and data maintenance and updating are the responsibility of BSD, so all IT expense is included in the annual subscription price.
