Collaboration Reinvented: Intelligent Communication April 1, 2008 Bassem Hamdy, Vice President, Solutions, CMiC


Collaboration Reinvented: Intelligent Communication

Unique Problems in Construction: Collaboration: Several stakeholders Dispersion: No command center, remote job sites, no ‘office’ Skill: Varying degrees of technical expertise Proprietary: Lack of desire to learn ‘other software’ and install other client software


Collaboration Reinvented: Intelligent Communication Lessons Learned from Mobile Solutions Lesson 1: Integration Problems Integration with enterprise software can challenging Costly integration Out of date information

∴ Should be embedded within the enterprise


Collaboration Reinvented: Intelligent Communication Lesson 2: Client Software and Third-party Collaborators Store forward applications have to be maintained managed and deployed When you are dealing with collaborators there is no ability for them to run other client software ∴ NO client software should be required


Collaboration Reinvented: Intelligent Communication

Lesson 3: Application Usage Hand held devices lend themselves to email Applications that require more interaction from users tend to be complex and experience a decline in usage

∴ Should be email based


Collaboration Reinvented: Intelligent Communication

Email: Unintelligent Communication Email that resides in a separate system and inaccessible to the enterprise as a whole has little value in the collaborative environment Information in email needs to entered into the system and made available for all collaborators


Collaboration Reinvented: Intelligent Communication

The Solution: CMiC I/O Allows emails to be sent directly to collaborators with the ability to fill in required data elements Utilizes basic email clients Contains a Create, Update and Delete function for records within the database with little effort


Collaboration Reinvented: Intelligent Communication

How Does It Work? Intelligently reads emails to determine: Receiver/Sender of email Project details Type of information/object

Automatically updates the database with relevant information


Collaboration Reinvented: Intelligent Communication

The Advantages No need for a secondary login Items are updated In a timely manner Record of communication stored forever True collaboration happens easily and efficiently Enter once, use data many times
