A new software system that would allow off-site plan storage along with the ability to recall, batch and print documents from the desktop has been launched by a New York AEC firm.

Vollmer Associates has announced the launch of PASS (Plan Archival Storage Systems), which stores and retrieves arch/engineering documents and offers customized desktop search fields to allow access either at a single computer, or across a network. Drawings are scanned, reviewed and indexed for quick retrieval. Stored drawings can be recalled, viewed and printed from the desktop. Entire sets of plans can be viewed and batch printed. Drawings can be stored offsite, freeing up valuable office space. For more information, contact Kenneth J. Stigner at 212.366.5600.
