eQuorum enhances its engineering workflow and document management solution to simplify collaboration with third parties

ATLANTA, GA, July 18, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — eQuorum enhances its engineering workflow and document management solution with an even easier and more secure way for users to distribute and share files, important CAD documents and drawings between internal and external teams. Enhanced features in version 11.4 will help organizations by increasing collaboration efficiency and security while improving workflow and team communication.

With an ever-changing economic landscape and the rise of remote working, it’s critical that teams have the right tools to work together more effectively and solve problems, both internally and with third parties. As work teams become more distributed and file security becomes more focused, it becomes even more important to have applications that help deliver the right information to the right participants in the workflow at the right time. Third parties, including customers, suppliers and contractors, seek greater ease of access to data and faster response to requests for information.

Version 11.4 will be available to customers starting July 18.

According to Scott Brandt, CEO of eQuorum, “We are always looking to provide engineers with the right tools that help their teams work better together so they can complete projects faster and with fewer resources. This can be achieved by equipping teams the right tools that help with disciplined workflow management and planning Our key new feature, 3P Direct, provides third parties with easy and secure access for viewing, downloading, markup and printing of documents without setting them up as users. Our customers can simply send an email and a link that allows the third party the access they wish to give. We believe that 3P Direct will greatly improve the way our customers do business and the industries we serve. I am proud of the work our team has done to make this possible.

New software enhancements in version 11.4 include:

3P direct
Customers can provide direct third-party access to view, download, annotate, and print documents as well as CAD drawings, without having to download, compress, email, ftp, or rely on external third-party tools. This key new feature improves project collaboration by saving customers a step in the document sharing process while protecting their intellectual property and the most important files.

Task scheduler
Customers can easily perform and share regularly scheduled reports for internal and external parties. Administrators can also now schedule the transfer of project files and metadata to an external data storage device or Amazon S3 bucket for archiving. Other key features will be included in the scheduler in future releases.

Workflow +
New automated enhancements take advantage of greater metadata granularity to help improve process flow with third parties. New features allow users to:
• Customize fields associated with specific steps and notifications using field value override
• Easily disable workflow configurations and share workflows with a secure link
• Add sets of saved and active files or documents to a workflow
• Launch a new workflow when new markup is added to a document.

Support for transmission and custom fields for sets
Customers can combine saved set data with transmission data enhancing document control, search and personalization capabilities.

Security
Improvements have been made to configuration settings to enhance document and file security.

Design assistance
Customers can maintain visual consistency between CAD and document management systems with DGN rendering now supporting all active views, similar to AutoCAD layouts.
