Jetbuilt, the global developer of project sales and management software, announced the addition of technical data fields to its project builder tool. These fields provide important product data, including rack units, watts consumption, BTU and dimensions of items.
According to Jetbuilt, utilizing technical data fields provides a clear view of information that will help ensure a project has a proper design. It also ensures accounting of components, such as rack space, power, heat ventilation and weight capacity. Thus, the data fields enable a smooth installation process.
“The introduction of technical data fields will save time, money and aggravation as the project moves to the installation stage,” remarks Tom Peters, director of business development at Jetbuilt. He gives one example where understanding a rack space for a particular installation, especially for a small space like a credenza, can ensure ordering of the proper size credenza.
Peters continues, “Additionally, you can warn the HVAC contractor that there will be 1000 BTU in a closet to ventilate, and easily view the total weight of a speaker system or videowall included in the project, to check against the building structure. Basically, the technical data in the Jetbuilt builder will provide a clear view of what is needed to accommodate the system being installed.”
Expanding Valuable Functionality
Technical data fields is the latest feature to support the platform’s engineering efforts. It will also pair well with Jetbuilt’s engineering scrub feature. Launched early in 2022, the feature allows companies to enforce a technical review as part of the workflow.

Scrub also ensures approval of every item from an engineering perspective before the project moves to the next stage. By having key technical data at the ready and auto-calculated, users can streamline this process as well.
Jetbuilt will showcase the technical data fields at CEDIA 2022. It will also highlight engineering scrub and JEL, the Jetbuilt Engineering Lab.
Also launched in 2022, JEL provides the ability to commission CAD drawings, REVIT drawings, 3D renderings and presale engineering as needed. All of this is possible within the integrated workflow of Jetbuilt.
Paul Dexter, Jetbuilt founder and chief executive officer, remarks, “While Jetbuilt is known as a sales and project management tool, in 2022, we committed to better serve consultants and the engineering side of our design teams using Jetbuilt. To that end we are proud to have launched engineering scrub, JEL, and now technical data fields, with more valuable functionality to come.”
Jetbuilt will exhibit at CEDIA in booth #9017, September 29 – October 1 in Dallas, Texas.
