Toronto, ON (PRWEB) July 31, 2013
CMiC, the leader in creating advanced, technologically open enterprise wide software solutions for construction and capital project management, released its highly anticipated Desktop plug-in.
Managing communications and the flow of information among team members often remains one of the greatest challenges for construction companies. Deploying a secure, web-based work space where workers can collaborate and share information is a proven, simple, economical way to address these challenges. But even with an ERP, solution emails and document management solutions are often disconnected from other project files and are often hard to organize.
With the release of CMiC Desktop, users are given a powerful plug-in that makes email and document management easy and secure. The new Desktop plug-in allows for “drag-and-drop” functionality. A simple add-in for Microsoft Office Outlook makes it easy to relate emails to action items, RFIs, change orders, job site photos, and submittals without ever having to leave the Outlook inbox. It also provides easy and immediate access to any document that is electronically filed, thus streamlining the preparation process for an audit by assuring that all supporting documents are available on demand. Desktop also helps reduces administrative costs associated with filing, retrieving and re-filing paper, and reduces the possibility of duplicate orders being entered into the system. Storage issues are also a common problem with Outlook; email space can now be freed and expenses relating to paper-based filing and document archiving can be reduced thanks to the unlimited storage capacity of the CMiC project database.
