Chapoo®, provider of a cloud-based project information and collaboration platform, today announced worldwide availability of the Chapoo Premium service and the introduction of a free service. The Chapoo Free service allows people to upload files, share them with friends and colleagues, view and annotate them in the cloud, all without the need to download them first or install any software. The Chapoo Premium service provides enterprises across different industries with a complete Software-as-a-Service solution to vastly improve project team collaboration and productivity.
“With thousands of users in the AEC industry, Chapoo has proven itself as a rock solid cloud solution for project collaboration,” said Erik De Keyser, Chapoo CEO. “With the new REST API and distinctive functionality in the area of data repository, forms, queries and reporting, the platform can now be put to service across different application domains in financial services, government agencies and manufacturing enterprises.”
The Chapoo Free service provides for simple document sharing. It allows people to upload files and share them with friends and colleagues. Documents, including most text, image and office formats, but also CAD drawings, can be viewed and annotated without the requirement to download them and without the need for the authoring software itself.
The Chapoo Premium service is a complete project information management and collaboration platform. It provides project teams, whether employees, contractors, suppliers or clients, with a single view on the most recent project data and on all documents, including full version control for a strong audit trail. Through better project communication and process management, including workflow, forms, query and reporting functionality, projects teams can reduce errors, manage costs, eliminate waste and improve performance.
“As one of the top construction companies in the Netherlands, TBI Infra has been using the Chapoo cloud service for several years now,” said J.R. van den Noort, Building Process Specialist, Mobilis B.V., part of the real estate, construction and technology concern TBI. “Ease of use, company specific templates, version control, built-in viewer, workflow … the service provides our project teams with all the tools they need to bring projects in on time and within budget.”
As a cloud-based service, customers can start to use the Chapoo service through a simple web browser, without the need to acquire hardware, configure software or worry about updates or backups. Project data and documents are accessible from anywhere and by anyone, but of course under secure role-based access control by the project administrator.
With a strong customer base of leading Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) companies in Europe, Chapoo nv is looking to expand its market reach through partnerships with consultants and system integrators with specific industry expertise and who can add value to the implementation and integration of the service into customer environments.
