Construction Project Collaboration Software

Viewpoint For Project Collaboration

Every major project relies on a complex network of owners, architects, engineers, construction managers, contractors and sub-contractors. In order for success and profitability, organized collaboration between all parties must occur in an integrated manner, ensuring the project meets cost, time and quality expectations. Drawings, documents, emails, and contracts need to be shared quickly among all stake holders, and the most effective way to achieve this level of sharing is with integrated project collaboration software. Viewpoint For Project Collaboration provides an online collaborative solution to help teams increase project control at every stage of the project lifecycle.

Extending your technology platform with new software solutions can sometimes be a complex and frustrating experience. Viewpoint has eliminated that potential headache by delivering Viewpoint For Project Collaboration as Software as a Service (SaaS) - meaning you access and use the software online via the web. There’s no software to install, no costly or specific IT infrastructure to buy – just a low monthly payment. This approach ensures that business-critical applications can be deployed in a cost-effective, scalable, secure and risk-reducing manner.
