Solutions

  • Project-wide collaboration platform with sophisticated document control and BIM data management.
  • Automated workflows with dashboard notifications for greater transparency and accountability.
  • Audit trail for compliance and conflict resolution.
  • API-based integration with internal and vendor systems for data exchange.
 

Results

  • 25% time savings in squad check processes.
  • Reduction of five-step RFI process to one create-and-send workflow.
  • Enrichment of plant design models with external data.
  • Fluid communications and always up-to-date project information.
