5:30 – 5:50pm InEight Document: Construction Document Management and Control

Speakers:
David Wagner, VP of Industry Solutions, InEight
David Lundgreen, Sr. Account Executive, Enterprise Sales, InEight

If you’re involved in complex projects involving multiple stakeholders, chances are everyone’s working from different information managed in different solutions – information that’s often out of date and poorly tracked, leading to inaccurate decision-making.

But a central document repository that acts as a “single source of truth” for all project stakeholders can reduce potential risk, decrease document search time, preserve crucial data, and increase the likelihood of accurate decision-making. Today’s most advanced document management tools make all of this possible and learning to use them is easier than you think.
