Engineering & Construction
Delivering effective projects should not be this hard!
Many construction projects get stuck with limited solutions that work at an early stage or on one specific task, but lack more advanced features to address the growing need for project management. The Building Industry’s rapid digitization is increasing expectations from partners to work completely digitally and without hassle. Have the courage to reject such tools!
Release the power of structured collaboration
We believe in digitizing information management in construction projects and allowing major peripheral activities to add value to your work. Imagine a comprehensive solution that provides a complete overview of ongoing changes, deadlines, responsibilities, budget and risks, where the site manager has complete control. Unnecessary conflicts, ambiguities and manual work can be avoided through support for direct reporting and easy monitoring.
Features for intelligent construction projects
Webforum tools are customized to your demands and throughout the different project phases, thanks to a complete solution for structured collaboration that grows with your needs.
1. Take your files and documents to a new level
Work on construction projects is centered around important documents. This can often be difficult to manage effectively. By actually working with these documents and structuring them within the Webforum tools, all the information becomes instantly available which adds value in your projects. Using features like document and file sets, auditing, versioning, meta-tagging and classification, in one solution, saves you both time and resources.
- Document Sets
- Meta-tag files
- Easy vs advanced search and access
- Review and approval
- Viewing of drawings
- Activity Log
2. Create value from peripheral activities
Activities that arise around the project, such as changes from scope or deviations from it, constitute a large part of the daily work and can easily cause delays and increased costs if not managed effectively. In Webforum, you can categorize different types of issues or tasks, which enables a proactive approach and provides a clearer overview. Along with the visual project portfolio makes it easy to enable continuous monitoring.
- Issue management
- Direct issue reporting
- Risk management
- Time Monitoring
- Project visualisation
3. Keep all involved parties updated
Often there are several different parties involved in construction projects. This creates a challenge to manage communication, delivery and document sharing with internal and external project stakeholders. In Webforum, this is facilitated by a flexible process for temporary sharing of documents, permission setting and a powerful document viewer to review complex files and drawings. Support is also available for working with 3D models and DWG.
- Mailing lists
- SMS function
- Shared calendar
- To – do lists
- Prioritization of tasks
