Public Works and Capital Projects That Can Benefit From ProjectDox
At Avolve, we are proud of the diversity of applications for ProjectDox. It’s uses are many and the departments and people it can benefit are many as well. It can be implemented spec or completely customized because we know each of our clients have unique needs for their unique cities or municipalities. While a building department may use it one way, a planning and zoning department may have a different use for it, and so on. In the public works and capital projects department, ProjectDox can offer a variety of benefits that other software simply cannot.
As the leading ePlan review software, it is easy to pigeonhole ProjectDox into one compartment but it cannot be compartmentalized. ProjectDox facilitates true project collaboration and creates an environment for managing projects that allows project team members instant web access to all project data as well as the ability to maintain a fully versioned document history. Rather than miscommunication, misplaced documents, and other problems that are often associated with the completion of any government project, ProjectDox is capable of eliminating things like information silos. It does this by creating a completely “open book” atmosphere within a project, tracking edits, submissions, documents, and any other updates or changes so that anyone can see what is happening in real time. Government departments, citizens and other stakeholders can be granted access and, with that access, securely work on a project and retrieve all needed information. This can be particularly beneficial to a the public works and capital improvements department within your government because of the unique set of challenges you face on a daily basis. Examples of departments that need to manage internal projects and improve rpocess thorugh better collaboration and communication tools include, but are not limited to:
- Roads & Bridges – construction, expansion and repair.
- Utilities, Water, Storm Water and Sanitation – construction, expansion and repair.
- Traffic – construction, design and management.
- Building Assets – new building construction, renovation and maintenance.
By keeping all project data, that is the most current information and data available, in one central location, anyone with permission can securely access what they need, when they need it, from anywhere with a secure internet connection. This will reduce lag-time in projects, reduce delays and help projects get completed more accurately and more quickly. By saving time (which benefits everyone), ProjectDox also saves money (which benefits everyone). Additionally, all project data is linked to the jurisdiction’s GIS system for quick reference and access and maintenance, which further expands the electronic built environment for future economic growth and development.
