Organizes your Paperwork

From initial design layouts to final 3D plans, it’s difficult for engineers & engineering firms to keep a track of all the various documents involved in every individual project. But when you use an engineering document management software to categorize and folderize your paperwork, tracking documents becomes that much more simple. Engineering document management systems are designed to ensure easier filing and retrieval of documents. Here’s how GLOBODOX document management software streamlines the paperwork for engineering projects:

Categorize your documents using Tags & Stacks

Supports Simultaneous Collaboration

In today’s constantly evolving work culture, one big project can make or break an engineer’s career. And delays in information gathering, while working on such important projects, are just not feasible. An engineering document management software ensures real-time collaboration between various project teams, thus reducing data transfer time. With GLOBODOX’s engineering document management system, you can seamlessly transfer project guidelines and changes to your teams within seconds. Here’s how GLOBODOX document management software accelerates data transfer for engineering projects:

Enhances Data Security

How much revenue have you lost to stolen design ideas, replicated by low cost firms? Data security is the need of the hour for any business, and it’s imperative that even engineering firms secure their documents before sharing them with clients and contractors. An engineering document management software provides an extra layer of security, and gives you complete control over all your documents. Here’s how GLOBODOX’s engineering document management system protects your documents from thefts and leaks:
