Improving Client Outcomes

The winter season is a great time to execute on your plan to go paperless to improve client outcomes.

If you’re still using paperwork, spreadsheets, or an internal PM system to manage project processes, you’re not alone. Many facility owners and CM firms just haven’t found the time, or right reason to update those processes. Others struggle to coordinate a bunch of separate applications. Utilize your time before the end of this year to see how EADOC can help.

Read on for client success stories, presentations, and free training to help you and your teams stay productive, improve control and reduce risk to improve client outcomes this holiday season.

Take a look, check back often, and we look forward to working with you in the New Year.

Best,

Eric Law
EADOC Founder and CEO

The County and URS selected EADOC as it offered the greatest efficiency in terms of daily communication, inter-project participation, ease of use and most importantly, application cost.

Connecting Project Information to Improve Control and Reduce Risk

Can you report on the relationship between a field condition that was not on a drawing, that generated an RFI, that resulted in a schedule delay, that turned into a change order—without spending hours with an excel spreadsheet? If not, then this presentation by EADOC’s Eric Law is for you!

Large volumes of project information are generated on today’s capital projects, resulting in ever greater need to track information relationships, so users can find relevant information quickly. Learn how tracking information relationships not only makes teams more efficient, but also reduces the risk of cost or schedule impacts.
