Emails, transmittals, submittals, RFIs, field reports, punch lists and other forms of project information flood an engineer’s workday. Time spent managing information steals time from design and client service. Paper documents and manual tracking are no longer up to the task. Fortunately, just as software is to blame for generating so much data, it’s also capable of managing the information explosion. In this complimentary webcast, two engineers describe how their companies are mitigating the risks that come with unprecedented quantities of project information.
