UL and AVAIL Partner to Improve Delivery of Sustainability Information to the AEC Industry

AVAIL integration with UL's SPOT database, allows AEC professionals to easily find, use and manage sustainability product information throughout the project lifecycle, saving time and resources

ATLANTA, July 15, 2019 — (PRNewswire) — UL, the developer of SPOT®, today announced a partnership with AVAIL, an enterprise content management solution for design teams. AVAIL improves productivity of industry professionals by providing access to the vast amounts of digital content across an architecture engineering and construction (AEC) design firm's network. This integrated approach for product sustainability data will enable users to access and manage product- and manufacturer- specific digital content, such as sustainability certifications, directly from UL's SPOT integration with the AVAIL Marketplace.

This partnership enables users to streamline access to SPOT's comprehensive sustainability data by leveraging AVAIL's search and filtering functionality, increasing the quality of digital content delivered and saving users valuable time.

"We're excited to work with our customers and UL to enable the next generation of information management," said Randall Stevens, CEO of AVAIL. "Improved access and management of this information is critical to delivering an experience that is digital from end-to-end."

UL's SPOT, one of the largest sustainable product databases with more than 100,000 product families, found a natural fit with AVAIL, an innovative platform for AEC design firms seeking to manage and organize their different databases of content and file formats. Once implemented, this partnership will help meet the accelerating demand for effective and relevant delivery of specific information about products' sustainability performance. Together, AVAIL and SPOT will provide the AEC community with a dependable, accurate source of data for products that have received third-party verification of their sustainability claims.

"Historically, sustainability content has been accessed from disparate sources and managed with inefficient manual processes. Thanks to the UL SPOT and AVAIL partnership, AEC professionals will be able to efficiently manage and use important sustainability data in their digital project workflows, saving time and resources," said Alberto Uggetti, vice president and general manager for UL's Environment and Sustainability division.

AVAIL will be exhibiting and presenting at the annual Digital Built Environment Institute (DBEI) Conference https://www.dbeinstitute.org/events/ July 18th-20th, 2019, in Seattle, Washington.
