Collaboration is a term often associated with human interactions but in the last few decades, technology has changed the way teams work with each other. These days, collaboration is more likely to involve working with multiple teams across different geographical locations and even time zones, bringing challenges more than just good human interactions can overcome.
CivilPro elevates collaboration amongst teams through a centralized platform where every project stakeholder can have access to the same repository of information and communicate with each other in real-time. Collaboration is enhanced through multi-user functionalities where users can view, track and update project information, yet maintaining the “single source of truth” model via version control.
Collaboration when integrated with well-designed software solutions can bring benefits greater than just fostering good working relations.
Take a look at this scenario where a key team member suddenly leaves a project due to unforeseen circumstances. In the traditional way of collaboration, this might result in some information loss between the team and the stakeholders. It might also create some gaps and disruptions to the communication process and continuity of the operations.
However, choosing the right software solution can help mitigate such risks. When collaboration within a group is disrupted, using a software built to serve the same collaborative purpose, can actually help the team to regroup and reconnect with the project stakeholders quickly.
In CivilPro, there is an email log documenting all the emails , requests and RFIs sent and received, including the details of communication, date and the persons involved. Not only can project communication be back-traced in CivilPro, but also every Lot action that leads to its finalized status can be accounted for via a series of registers and actions logs.
At a deeper level, collaboration should permeate all levels of the project, from team interactions to the resources and information that they shared. Good collaboration strategies when applied holistically to the entire project, can mitigate risks arising from disruption by a single source.
