Our suite of on-premise and cloud-based software platforms and apps redefine what it means to collaborate. Our construction-specific solutions allow teams to share, track, and manage all project documents — such as bids, submittals, approvals, punch lists, field data, work orders, and audits — in real-time, from any location. Our software strategies will ensure your team has the right tools to handle all matters of project management, cost management, scheduling, communication, accounting, and so much more. Version control is key to having control of and finishing projects with multiple people involved.
We understand how important it is to have secure access to documents, know who created them, what they are for and to retrieve them quickly, in order to avoid any mistakes or confusion on a project. Bespoke access is also key.
Documents frequently processed within construction include: tender documents, pre-construction agreements, contracts, planning applications, field reports, architect’s bulletins, procurement records, as-built drawings, Notice to Proceed, Notice of Substantial Completion, Specifications, CAD drawings, Record Photographs, Operating Manuals, Health and Safety files and many more.
Our solutions work by capturing, indexing and storing all documents and information relating to a project in a centralised electronic document pool which allows the project manager and other staff involved to access up-to-date information in real time. Version control means the latest version is available – the ability to go back but duplication is impossible.
By automating processes, you can instantly share valuable information making it easier to track budgets and deliver projects with greater efficiency. By digitising construction risk assessments, project managers can easily identify and deal with any risks. In addition, our solutions allow you to set permissions or rules so that you can decide who gets to share and manage your project information and documents. Reporting becomes a breeze.
Since 2016, the UK government has required construction suppliers to be BIM compliant. With a secure document management and scanning solution the designer’s CAD drawings can be easily shared with the structural and civil engineers, mechanical and electrical engineers, quantity surveyors and other people involved in the project by integrating with the Building Information Modelling (BIM) platform.
