A unified cloud platform automates processes through consistent workflow integrations such as authorization and approval activities. The platform can link workflows to project events which are triggered automatically so that project status is always clear, helping to avoid delays and risks. For example, when the system detects a delayed process or certain predetermined conditions are met, alerts are automatically sent to the right stakeholders, so they can act quickly.
An enterprise-level platform serves as the digital foundation of a business. It connects the entire construction lifecycle – from initial plans all the way to building maintenance – in the cloud. Quantity takeoff, estimation, project timelines, and procurement schedules can all be connected with BIM models. Having real-time access at an enterprise level also fosters greater communication and collaboration across a business. Teams are no longer working in silos and can share data and best practices, driving more efficient task management and approval.
A cloud platform also delivers great flexibility and customization. Workflows can be configured based on enterprise management standards and working methods so that teams are equipped with workflows designed specifically for how they work. Each workflow ensures users have all essential project information at their fingertips. The collaborative environment encourages interaction and data sharing among stakeholders, ensuring everyone is kept well-informed throughout the project.
