Autodesk Constuctware 2011 Released

Source:    http://doddsandends.typepad.com/blog/2010/11/autodesk-constuctware-2011-released.html

Looks like the Constructware team has been hard at work on some updates and new features in Constructware 2011. Read on for more information.

Daily "Field" Reports
The Daily Reports module is used by construction teams in the field to record and communicate on-site construction activities such as work activity by trade contractors, equipment used, safety issues, and QA/QC concerns.

The newest update to this module includes features designed to increase the collaborative nature of Daily Reports – enabling subcontractors to create and view their own forms without  access to those created by other trades, and giving general contractors and/or owners access to all data, as well as their own forms.
The added ability to add an image of your "signature" to a finalized form with a special PIN code locks down the report for further editing, and adds a level of trust and accountability to the process.

Simplified File Upload
Instead of uploading design files, photos, and other attachments in support of workflows such as RFIs and
Change Orders and then linking the documents together, customers can now upload files directly to File Director "on the fly."  This improvement saves several steps on a process that users undertake several times per day, and satisfies one of the improvement request most commonly made by end users.
Data Access / Reporting
Constructware's data warehouse that is used for Custom Reports is updated several times per day with fresh data.  The previous refresh rate was approximately every 4 hours, and it has been improved by 100% to every 2 hours.  This improvement marks significant progress on another top request of customers – improvement in the freshness and relevance of data used in their customized reports.  As always, the data in the 100+ "preconfigured" reports is up-to-the-minute.
