Designed to move documents through the entire project life-cycle, Project Document Manager (PDM) allows you to organize, distribute and archive all documents from the design and development phase to project close out. PDM's flexible "open architecture" technology allows for connectivity and communication with most project management systems that you may already use. Increased productivity allows users to grow revenue, decrease costs, and mitigate risk while increasing their margins. PDM's easy to use with features that can streamline your daily efforts with tools like the following:
With ReproMAX PDM, you have choices. You can create your own private address book while importing contacts from other systems for everyone in your organization. Search for your contacts by name, trade, CSI code, or any other attribute.
In addition to maintaining your own contacts you can integrate contacts directly from McGraw Hill's database. Maintain public or private contact lists developed for your specific needs while keeping your data fresh and continually updated. Create private and secure smart lists of your favorite CSI specialties with just a few mouse clicks.
With ReproMAX PDM's complete invitation to bid and notification system, you can quickly create and send custom notifications to any of your contacts via email or fax. Send invitations to bid, notifications of new addenda, contractor qualification statements, and more. You determine the content; the recipients receive and respond to the notification. Manage all of your notifications and track responses through the online planroom. Grant and deny access to specific projects and folders for each contact to keep your documents secure.
You and the project team members will always know which document is the most current with ReproMAX PDM's version control. Regardless of what issue the drawings were released, the "Current Set" folder contains the most current set of plans. They are also broken down by discipline so you can get the "Current Architectural Set" and so on. If you need a specific issue set, you can go to that specific folder. Old versions of documents are clearly indicated with a red dot.
The cumbersome task of updating and prequalifying subcontractors is made tremendously easier with PDM. This tool allows you to keep in front of your subs on a timely basis and keep current without a lot of personal contact.
PDM is well designed; it incorporates practical everyday workflow process into reminders that keep you informed on the status of your submittals without overdoing email reminders and requiring incessant mouse clicking.
With ReproMAX PDM's integration with online takeoff tools, you can access your plans from the planroom and perform your estimations online. No more highlighters or trying to track down the electronic formats of your plans.
