From the first design sketches to the contractor agreements, from the building permits to the final inspection and sign-off, endless paperwork flows between everyone involved.
The materials for each project are strewn across multiple agencies, project offices (e.g. departments of architecture, statics and dynamics, geomechanics, roads, tunnels, bridges, machinery, laboratory), vendors, contractors, subcontractors, and work sites.
All firms leverage scheduling and project management software to keep each project on track, and yet these same firms always fall behind schedule. Even though they know this, they continue to work and rack up costs due to delays. Any mistake in the exchange of information – especially construction documentation – ultimately means a standstill on the construction site, and then the costs rise enormously. You may know where your files are, but can you access and reference the latest project documents with all of the up-to-date changes at a moment’s notice?
To avoid these mistakes, engineers are hired to manage the entire project and keep progress under control. Too much is at stake, dependent on a single individual responsible for everyone’s success.
Imagine that all of the permits, bidding procedure documents, filled agreement forms, and procurement contracts were located in one easy-to-use solution. Now imagine that every point of contact involved in the project also has access to these documents and can see them instantly without having to go through days of calling and emailing back and forth.
Delays won’t plague your schedule, because investors and foremen will no longer be waiting on endless paperwork from entities behind schedule. All of the relevant contracts, designs, and agreements will be located in one consolidated repository.
If you have been relying on printed paperwork and handwritten amendments, those can be scanned into the system, and digital documents can be processed in batches. You can deploy in the cloud, on-premise, or both; key personnel will have access no matter what. Even in the field at a site, users can connect to the platform via a mobile app or browser. They are seeing the same files that someone back in the office or across the world is seeing.
It is easy to work with a digital engineering platform. Sending, uploading, and sharing documents is simple. You can organize your files in the cloud and collaborate using an intelligent workflow.
It’s not enough to merely store and find the files you need, though, is it? In order to collaborate, each manual process needs a digital counterpart. Users must be able to send one another drafts, get purchase orders to the purchasing department, approve designs, or send back files with some notes for revision.
An intelligent workflow allows for all of this. Documents can be sent instantly between departments for review and approval, even signing and stamping with metadata for the date. Annotations can be added for the next party in a sequence, or for the original sender if this draft needs more work.
A digital engineering platform isn’t just for your company – it is for everyone involved in your projects. Investors and owners are only interested in successful projects with minimized costs, and they will be able to log in to see progress, noting that the platform itself is responsible for the efficiency.
With this solution, you can select named licenses for your employees who use the software daily, as well as concurrent licenses for subcontractors and others outside of the organization. Both forms of access are equally secure, especially since your team can designate who can see and edit which files. And if you just need to send access to a single contract to another entity, a connection can be generated that doesn’t compromise the safety of your data. Need to take something out of the system temporarily? You can even check content out and back in as necessary.
Computhink is the first company to provide a digital data interchange solution for construction projects. With Computhink’s Contentverse, everyone can connect on a single, synchronized platform. No more waiting on forms in the mail. No more losing days of work to misplaced files or missed calls. If you need something, you log in and view it. Need to approve something? It’s already in your system. Your projects stay on schedule. That doesn’t just save you time and peace of mind, it also saves your stakeholders money.
We offer Contentverse, ready to go, with a personalized installation. You can choose whether you deploy on your own servers, in the cloud, or a mix of both. With our flexible implementation options, you can select a number of licenses that fits your team size as well as concurrent licenses to support any outside parties on each project. Contentverse also includes a templates option for companies to receive the software pre-loaded with a host of document types specific to your sector. You can create project documentation in the system by starting with a template, speeding up the implementation process.
Contentverse comes fully equipped with intelligent workflow for passing documents between users in the system, as well as key features like version control and the mobile app. We also offer options to enhance your implementation with forms processing, easy file indexing, and integrations with existing programs. So, do not be afraid to use your existing applications with our platform! If you use a program for which we don’t yet have an integration, we can create one. This unprecedented level of customization ensures that your Contentverse system is more than just a one-size-fits-all package – it’s the perfect package for your needs.
We don’t just have digital solution experts at Computhink. We also have experience in the architecture, construction, engineering, and mechanical engineering fields. Customers are in good hands with our business development director, Dr. Dragan Radic. Forty years of practical, on-site experience in civil engineering and structural engineering – both as a project manager and as a researcher – has vested Dr. Radic with a deep understanding of both the business and the science. He leads our team in engineering customization efforts while leveraging his own vision, research, construction, and IT innovation for software development as well.
Construction is the balance wheel of the economy, literally responsible for the infrastructure of society. Even during the pandemic, construction has persisted as an industrial backbone. Computhink knows that the stability and tradition of construction is vital, but firms need to adopt the changing methods of digital communication and collaboration if they want to save costs and excel. With guidance from our own engineering professional and a history perfecting our platform, Contentverse will transform your project management experience. Now is the time to make a change that can benefit everyone.
