Cloud Document Management Software for the Construction Industry

The Construction Industry:  A Strong Economic Backbone

Each day, before the sun rises, millions of construction workers wake up, drink their coffee, and begin their commute to the job site. Construction, like few others, is one of the longest-standing industries and has been the backbone of the U.S economy since its establishment in the mid-1700s. With the growing scale and complexity of construction projects, it comes as no surprise that organizations struggle to manage communication and collaboration amongst project managers, construction laborers, architects, engineers, and vendors.

The construction industry accounts for 4.3 percent of the U.S GDP and is projected to achieve an AAGR of three percent over the next four years.  New construction put in place in the U.S in 2021 were valued at almost $1.6 trillion U.S dollars, and is forecast to reach over two trillion in 2025. With all this growth, there’s no wonder that construction companies – large and small, are seeking alternative solutions to help better manage complex workflows, vendor and contractor collaboration, and document-centric communications needed to complete their complex objectives.

EDMS features that enhance document version control

Cloud Document Management EDMS Is Necessary For Growth

Since their introduction in the early part of this century, Cloud EDMS (electronic document management systems) have helped organizations improve  third-party collaboration between builders, engineers, owners, and other stakeholders involved in the construction process. The most innovative and adept companies have realized the importance and power of a fully robust engineering workflow and document management system, as these systems encompass every aspect of the typical project lifecycle, and can help piece together the many facets of the AECO (architect,engineering,construction,owner) arena.

Cloud EDMS technology helps owners and contractors build trust and understanding, while simultaneously providing them with the information they need to increase and maintain efficiency throughout their expansion.  A Cloud document management system provides greater visibility into project timelines and expansive insights that help management identify bottlenecks and inhibitory inefficiencies in project workflows. With the industry growing at lightning speed, companies can leverage Cloud EDMS technology to rapidly scale, increase their mobile agility, and bring projects to market faster without sacrificing the level of quality their customers expect.

ImageSite: Our Private Cloud EDMS Technology

ImageSite, our Private Cloud EDMS technology, was designed in conjunction with our engineers and customers, to make it the purpose-built system that it is today.

Customers can expect to see advanced process automation in the latest major version of ImageSite which can be used to reduce the amount of time spent on menial, repetitive tasks. And, as always, the systems provide users with a secure document repository and provides them with a central base to manage engineering workflows, RFIs, engineering transmittals, and markups on-site, in the office, or from anywhere.

ImageSite creates a truly collaborative environment for AEC companies, where all project members can express their ideas about project-specific information, without needing to manage and maintain records of their communication. Better yet, it facilitates version-centric communications by using advanced version control automation – configurable based on the preference of each company. Additionally, ImageSite automates both internal and email notifications that keep parties informed to further foster the relationships needed to drive successful outcomes.

The eQuorum Customer Promise

In 2005, eQuorum developed the first all browser-based EDMS.  The system, although for on-premise use, was still created to remove client software from user computers and allow users to have a single viewer based on the simple navigation functionality of browsers.  Today, eQuorum provides that same application in a private Cloud and SaaS Cloud option.  We can do this because we have always been browser-based,  understanding the enhanced speed, security, and usability of this technology.

With the abundance of document management systems on the market today, and the rapid growth that construction companies face, there’s no doubt that choosing the right cloud document management software can be a difficult decision. Whatever system  you may choose, eQuorum is here to provide a comprehensive, powerful, and most importantly – an affordable alternative to mainstream construction management systems. We believe in providing real value to our customers  by eliminating unnecessary costs, providing industry-leading functionality, and equipping your team with the right tools to bring your products to market faster.
