Ghent, Belgium (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
Chapoo®, provider of a cloud-based project information and collaboration platform, today announced that Antwerp-based ALIAS Real Estate Consultancy has been certified as a partner for the Chapoo Premium service. The Chapoo Premium service provides enterprises, especially in Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC), with a complete Software-as-a-Service solution to vastly improve project team collaboration and productivity.
ALIAS provides project management services with a specialization in construction and acts as the driving force between the different partners on the building team. The ALIAS team includes a core of experienced, senior project managers and is able to build upon an extensive network to tackle the most complex challenges and contribute to the success of its clients.
“Even today too many projects still exchange information through email and USB sticks, or even on paper, resulting in high failure rates when not everybody is working from the latest version of the design. Portal sites such as Chapoo are the perfect solution to help overcome these problems,” said Geert De Maesschalck, ALIAS CEO. “The Chapoo Premium service offers the flexibility to respond to the diverse needs of the projects we are working on, as proven by successful implementations with e.g. Gemeentelijk Havenhuis Antwerpen, Eurogare and Hospital Chirec.”
“We have been using the Chapoo Premium service for managing our building projects for many years now. It is a great instrument to exchange and follow-up on all the building related information throughout the whole building process, and to support the completion of a final as-built file,” said Kristof Thiers, project and demand manager, SD Worx.
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.
“We are glad to welcome ALIAS as an implementation partner for the Chapoo Premium services in Belgium,” said Mark Van Den Bergh, Chapoo COO. “We are looking to expand our 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. And ALIAS definitely fits the model.”
Pricing for the Chapoo Premium service starts at €1500/year. In addition, the ALIAS team can deliver training, implement document structures, prepare workflows, all specifically tailored to the project at hand.
