Poor communication and ineffective collaboration on a project can result in a lack of consistent information, errors, a less efficient workforce, wastage, timescales being missed and so on.
A good project manager has to ensure that the project team can easily communicate accurate information to other team members, providing secure access and tracking who created, viewed and changed information.
The ICON Solution
Using ICON's Electronic Document Management System, the project team can securely publish and access a range of documents including spreadsheets, CAD drawings, photographs, certificates, to a central location, as and when needed.
Uploading documents to various parts of the system is a simple process. The system has been designed to function without the need to install additional software.
A file handling plug-in allows the bulk upload of files to the System. Users can browse for local files and build up a list to upload. Sets of selected files can be uploaded or whole folders can be added to the queue.
This functionality allows the user to quickly upload a set of, for example, CAD drawings or photographs. Once loaded onto the System, the file descriptions are automatically created from the file names. These can be amended as required, or just left as they are.
Take a range of documents...
...and publish where required.
||Our aim is to make information easy to share and easy to access by those who need it.
