In the construction industry, email has than the predominant tool for communicating information between project stakeholders. While email is a useful tool, there are limitations to use it for all your complex construction project needs. Capital projects are built by lots of different people and organizations and therefore, multitudes of project stakeholders using separate and disparate email systems is not effective and terribly inefficient.

Also, because this information is stored in multiple systems, it’s difficult to have a consistent audit history. Another issue with emails is that they’re uncontrolled, which means it’s difficult to manage who sees what and when on a construction project since emails are accessible to anyone at any time. In addition, emails were not purpose built for construction professionals’ needs in terms of their format. Additionally, those emails are not linked to other project items like plans, photos, RFI’s or specifications.

Imagine how much time is wasted endlessly searching for critical project files.

Let me tell you about a better way. With a project correspondence solution from an eight, you’re able to utilize an easy and efficient single source of truth where all your project emails are gathered and linked to specifics of your capital project. This way you can keep records of everything that is attached to your capital project allowing all stakeholders to communicate effective and efficiently.
