Diversified Interiors’ commitment to innovation has led us to adopt several advanced technologies that continually increase the quality of our performance as a premier finishing company.
Last month, we wrote about how utilizing a precision laser layout system dramatically increases the accuracy and efficiency of our interior and exterior layouts. This month, we discuss how using a digital documentation system helps us streamline construction processes for a more efficient and cost-effective build, saving our clients both time and money.
Everyone works off the most current documentation
Poor document management can result in schedule delays and cost overruns. When people work with paper blueprints or multiple versions of electronic files, they often don’t have all the information they need. Even worse, they sometimes end up working off of an outdated set.
With our digital documentation system, all of our plans and documents are stored in one place and managed in the cloud. They are automatically hyperlinked and are versioned in order. In addition, all of the photos the team takes on site are seamlessly added to the system and are shared in a single photo archive for the project. Everything in the system is easily searchable, meaning that our team spends less time hunting for information.
The result is that everyone on our team feels confident that they’re always working off the most current documentation, no matter where they are or what device they’re on. The system we use works equally well on a desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone.
New team members are quickly brought up to speed
It isn’t only our most experienced team members who benefit from our digital documentation system. The system we use is so intuitive that we’re able to get new team members up and running on it within a week, helping reduce time and costs associated with training. And because everyone on our team regularly uses our digital documentation system, almost anyone can train new hires on how to use it. No matter who’s working on a project, whether they’re our most seasoned veteran or our newest hire, we can trust that everyone is on the same page at the same time.
Communication between the office and the field is streamlined
Our project managers and engineers have the ability to look at the exact same documents that our field teams are looking at. This enables them to answer questions quickly, keeping the project schedule on track and the field teams working with minimal interruptions. If our field team notices issues on site, they can quickly and easily mark up drawings and attach pictures right from the field.
Work is done right the first time, every time
Taken together, all of these factors mean that the state-of-the-art digital documentation system we use helps us ensure we do our work right the first time, every time. Eliminating costly redos saves our clients valuable time and money.
