Whether you still hold onto paper or not, more construction activity content is reaching you in a digital format. Email, electronic collaboration portals, file sharing, applications for payment, plan set revisions, etc all accumulate into a mountain of digital documents. How you manage your digital documents will determine your success in project management, effective communication, risk management and productivity. Without a strategic plan and integrated solutions to document workflow you are highly susceptible to Information Chaos.
This slide presentation by John Mancini presented at the AIIM conference explains the challenges, how to plan and prepare for Information Chaos in a Digital World

What construction needs is a digital document workflow that incorporates project management correspondence, BIM collaboration, emails, reporting, human resources and accounting. With workflows the digital documents are stored, tracked, revised, managed and resaved all into a central depository with rules applied for document retention throughout the document lifecycle while maintaining secure access to sensitive data.
