Pype, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) construction tech company, introduces SmartPlans, a platform that employs artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning to analyze project drawings and extract contract compliance items. 

 SmartPlans’ computer vision and machine learning technology reads and analyzes PDF drawings that have been uploaded to identify and extract submittals. The system allows users to easily export product, equipment, and finish schedules to expedite their procurement log and precon planning. This automation serves a second purpose: project risk mitigation. Built on an advanced AI engine, SmartPlans compares these captured requirements to those from millions of data points in its cloud, identifying and alerting users of potentially missing critical requirements. 

Pype currently works with more than 40 percent of the ENR Top 400 companies and has been helping contractors dig deeper into project requirements since 2014. For more, visit
