AECArticle3 Reasons You Need a Construction Document Review Software - e-PlanSoft

July 13, 2020by Brandy Parslow

In the construction business—where there are so many moving pieces—management tools help with the productivity, budgeting, efficiency, and timely delivery of the project while keeping everyone, from stakeholders to engineers, architects, and project managers in the loop.

Construction document review is one of the most annoying and time-consuming tasks in any construction project. While the tedious nature of this task can make any manager’s life difficult, efficiency and control are crucial to ensure that the project ends smoothly and on time—leaving no room for mistakes and errors. According to market research, construction professionals spend 35% of their time looking for project information and tracking down documents, leading to a significant productivity problem.

With digital advancement, document review and management has become less tiresome. Digitalization allows the managers to gain effective document control, and paperless management reduces the challenges of storage, review, and overall supervision.

In this blog, we’ll discuss the reasons why the construction industry needs document review software like e-PlanREVIEW® and how it can not only improve but enhance the competitiveness of the process.

1.   Avoid Errors and Omissions

The systemic approach of review software helps prevent mistakes that may otherwise be overlooked. Even a small error in construction can be costly and add vulnerability to the whole project.

If you have ever been involved in a development project, you’d know that there’s no contractor or manager out there who hasn’t made unintentional mistakes or a project that didn’t need revisions and changes. Revisions are necessary to refine and improve the project, but revisions mean printing and distributing documents to every relevant person involved. Keeping track of changes and ensuring that everyone is on the same page can become extremely difficult; however, review software like e-PlanREVIEW® removes the trouble of updating, printing, and distribution.

Not only can you prevent significant mistakes when not catching changes, but you can also keep everything in check and trackable right inside the cloud.

2.   Get Real-time Updates

What happens if someone in the field notices a discrepancy in the document or a signing authority needs you to make quick tweaks before approving the document? With a review software, you can help cut through the red tape by allowing the relevant parties to request changes and then making those changes at a moment’s notice—saving considerable resources and time.

There’s no need for extra paperwork or record-keeping with e-PlanREVIEW® where you can label folders and files for easier access and real-time information management.

3.   Assessment and Review

The kind of open communication ensured by document review software facilitates an audit trail where every version of the file is available for government agencies and permitting authorities interested in legal compliance.

Cloud-based management permits the team to assess new information and forward it to the right people for clean record-keeping.
