It's funny. I was reading this and looking at the part that says "going paperless". Of course I was thinking that if the entire design and construction team worked together, used BIM and collaborated, there would be no Addendums, RFIs and change orders, so the project would be paperless. Well, until that day arrives, learn how to do with all of the paperwork that you receive and process every day that cripples your business and your profits.

|Information management is one of the biggest challenges in construction today. As technology tools and increased collaboration have become ingrained in the construction process, more and more pages of information are being created at every step. Projects seem to regularly be running into 1,000’s of RFIs, CCDs and ASIs, not to mention submittals, creating a massive backlog of inaccessible information that increases the costs and delays on projects.|
How do you deal with all of it?Technology can not only be used to improve communication and collaboration, it can be used to more efficiently manage information to reduce costs associated with the delays introduced by traditional paper trails and the increased volume of information being produced on projects today. Going digital for your information management reduces the amount of time that it takes to put the right information into the hands of the people that need it most, when they need it, minimizes the amount of paper consumed and leads to greater project efficiencies and a lot less impact on our environment.
