Construction 

The Industry

The Construction industry has always been an indicator of economic strength or weakness and continues to be one of the most influential industries in world markets, specially the North American one.
Some cities are forecasted to enjoy record breaking years and that means an unprecedented demand on the construction market, resources and contractors as well as associated industries and services.

The Challenges

While enjoying a hot market, the construction industry has minimally addressed the advancement in technologies and how that can assist in streamlining operations, meeting legislation and compliance requirements and increasing net profits by increasing efficiency and decreasing operational costs.

Intelligent Information Management (IIM) 

IIM For the construction industry is a platform that assists in addressing backend operational and compliance challenges while also increasing efficiency, enabling access to the right information, and contributing to the overall profitability of an organization.
It is best to look at IIM from different angles, one being short term, for what is needed immediately and one from a long term and what benefits an organization can expect and look for.

IIM Project vs. Construction projects

If conducted methodically, with structured phases and measurable outcomes at each phase, IIM project phases can deploy into production in a short time frame and with resounding success. IIM projects are very similar in nature to construction projects, they start with needs and requirements and finish with post completion maintenance.

Authorized users will always have access to the latest sets of information available to them.

All communications, regardless of devices used, are secured and the content repository is encrypted and not available through direct network access.

Securing information down to the data level so only authorized users can view, edit or even search for it.

The Office solution, including Outlook, is the authoring product of choice for many organizations and thus, is fully integrated.

Compliance enablement tool as well as a complete view of solution operations.

Allows integrating with external, non connected solutions as well as being used for scripting very specific organization needs that can not be fulfilled with out of the box features.

Authorized users will always have access to the latest current version of information as well as any and all previous versions.

Any and all file formats can be stored and retrieved, including AutoCAD, Pictures, Audio and Video files

One interface to conduct searches across all connected repositories with the ability to sort and filter the list. A time and effort saving tool that allows authorized users a complete view of relevant information within organization repositories.

Sharing documents with external recipients and storing official documents for long term archiving requires PDF. IIM solutions can render, on the fly, files to PDF formats.

Powerful tool that enables automating and controlling processes according to business requirements and operational procedures.

Fully customizable to meet user specific interface needs.

Sharing documents with external recipients and storing official documents for long term archiving requires PDF. IIM solutions can render, on the fly, files to PDF formats.

IIM repositories

A centralized repository which contains all latest, approved and official information (Content and Data) is the main repository of an IIM solution.
However, sections or groups within an organization will require operational repositories to store in-progress information and information that are not deemed shareable or of importance to other sections within the organization.
As well, information that is no longer relevant to daily operations, but has historical value or legal requirements, must be kept and for that, an Archive repository will be needed.
This concept was deployed at several client installs with rules and workflows that governed movement of information, either manually or automatically, from one repository to another.
Authorized users can select to search any of these repositories and can be restricted from manually adding information to the Published or Archive repositories. 

Process automation and control

Many of the Construction industry processes are repetitive in nature, such as applying for build permits, controlling inspection steps, singing contracts, maintaining safety procedures or processing invoices and cheques.
Using emails and paper-based copies to complete such processes is time consuming, prone for errors and lacks control features, thus is a risk factor for any construction organization.
Workflow tools with automation, rules, task control, escalation, reminders, email notification and mobile enabled can streamline and control each of those processes. While some tasks will require user intervention, other tasks will be fully automated and by doing so, users are able to achieve more during the day while the organization enjoys real-time control, audit and achieve one of the biggest challenges in compliance paths.

Data driven operations

By enabling data identifiers for storing information, rather than location or folder base approaches, information can be retrieved and viewed using any identification data element
or using keywords within contents. 
The same data identifiers can be used to further filter results to more specific criteria’s and can be used to show process progress as well as allow customer service representatives to address customer enquiries instantl
