It is no good simply enabling operational teams to collaborate and share information; the owner of that information must have confidence that access is being managed, that its staff are able to work efficiently and that its valuable Intellectual Property is retained, accessible and reusable once the project is complete.
Fastman’s Engineering Document Control (EDC) is a rapid deployment packaged solution for documents, drawings and associated business processes that address these requirements and more. It establishes a secure platform for the full lifecycle management of both project and corporate information, from creation to ultimate disposal or client handover.
Document Controllers are provided with tools specifically developed to improve their efficiency and minimise processing time, project team members are able to access and update information irrespective of physical location and stakeholders are able to obtain accurate information directly and on demand.
EDC has been developed in conjunction with leading global engineering organisations. It leverages OpenText’s proven Content Suite and Fastman’s Bulk Data Manager for Document Controllers, to deliver standard industry functionality such as transmittals, submittals, managed document numbering, batch upload, and scheduled reporting. Optional components include CAD drawing management and renditioning, markup and workflow.
Typical deployment time from commencement to handover is 2-3 months and licencing is perpetual with low ongoing maintenance and support costs. Monthly and annual payment options are available and can be spread across both capex and opex as needed.
By tuning the core platform and aligning it with individual business needs, Fastman improves user adoption and radically changes the way organizations use OpenText Content Suite.
