  • High volumes of drawings, documents and communications between project participants.
  • Requirement for a complete, accurate record of all project activities.

Solutions

  • Central, web-based platform linking all organizations involved in the development.
  • Ability to access, distribute and track drawings, documents and approvals at any time, from any location.
  • Timely, efficient project communications and data retrieval.
  • Audit trail of every project transaction and an archive of project data for delivery to the owner.

Results
