BuildFlow Software

BuildFlow Request For Information "RFI" routes the question to the right people to expite the answer based on the project specifications and drawing disciplines. 

  • Reduce answer response time
  • Answered RFI’s are automatically distributed
  • The interactive log keeps everyone accountable

How It Works

  • An RFI is created from the log or project document.
  • The workflow sends the RFI to the administrator who can answer or issue the question for an answer.
  • The answer administrator manages answer contributors, ball in court and action required answer the question.
  • The administrator accepts or rejects the answer. 
  • An accepted answer is distributed and the RFI is closed. 
  • A rejected answer returns the RFI back to the answer administrator and the RFI remains open.

Who uses RFI? 

RFI is for all project team members, which includes owners, architects, engineers, construction managers, and contractors.

Why is BuildFlow RFI better than the competition and traditional methods? 

It is the people behind the software. Our customer support team is always available to assist project team members. We are from the building industry and know the RFI process well.

Who pays and how much does it cost? 

The BuildFlow account owner pays for RFI. An individual project invoice is sent each month for active BuildFlow services, which can easily be used for reimbursement.

RFI is billed per project monthly. Total cost is based on the number of projects using RFI each month. RFI can be turned on or off on a project at any time. There is no limit to the number of users, RFIs or customer support.

A BuildFlow account specialist will review your estimated volume to calculate the appropriate unit rates.

Can there be multiple administrators and contributors in a workflow? 

Yes, there can be multiple RFI administrators, answer administrators and contributors.

Who can change the ball in court and set action required items? 

RFI administrators can change the ball in court before an RFI is issued for an answer. Once the RFI is issued only the answer administrator can set or change the ball in court and action required.
