Overview

Sword CTSpace provides document management and collaboration workflow applications for the construction and engineering industry that increase the efficiency and reduce the risks in managing a built asset throughout its entire lifecycle.

Our solutions are used by organizations involved in , , , and . Our solutions are well-represented in the areas of (exploration, recovery, and refining), (nuclear, alternative, and conventional), (design and management of light and heavy rail systems), (power and water distribution), (offices building, hotels, shopping centers, pharma- ceutical plants, etc.) and (school districts, hospitals, government facilities, etc.)

Business challenges

The business challenges facing both Owner Operators, AECs (Architects, Engineering, Contractors) and EPCs (Engineering, Procurement, Construction contractors) include:

  • Increased complexity
  • A greater number of sub-contractors and partners
  • Increasingly aggressive project timescales and budgets
  • Compliance pressures
  • Rise in cost of claims compounded with tougher penalty clauses for overruns
  • Increased need for real time business intelligence

Sword CTSpace offers innovative business improvement solutions in all these areas, with a best practices environment that supports a project’s entire lifecycle: from design, through construction, and into operation/maintenance.

    The singular content agnostic FusionEnterprise integrates seamlessly with all the major ECM systems on the market. Among other benefits this uniform format provides the user with a “greatest hits” of features derived from the former suite and a complete integration with Sword CTSpace’s dynamic Cloud-based Document Management & Project Collaboration solution FusionLive.

    Benefits

    Architects, engineers and contractors are more effectively managing programmes and projects by using our solutions, with benefits such as:

    • Improved project communication
    • Full transparency across the project
    • Enhanced ability to manage schedules and risks
    • Improved regulatory compliance


    Design phase:

    Sword CTspace solutions provide a controlled environment for engineering content management that will make an organization’s development lifecycle significantly quicker.

    Fusion Enterprise products provide engineering and drafting teams the functionality they need to successfully leverage an organization’s generic document management system into a configuration management system for engineering projects. The provided functionality allows for: robust version control, the management of relationships between engineering documents, the management of compound drafting files, engineering document collaboration, and document viewing and markup.

    Sword CTSpace’s online offerings allow engineering development consortiums to quickly deploy a state of the art engineering content management solution without any IT investment. Engineering teams from multiple organizations can come together via the extranet to collaborate on engineering content in a secure and controlled environment.

    Fusion Enterprise customers can leverage the on-line offerings to extend engineering content collaboration to external partners without impacting the integrity of the internal enterprise document management system.


    Construction phase:

    Sword CTspace’s online solutions can be quickly configured to facilitate the implementation of a construction project’s quality plan. By improving the accuracy and accountability around processes supporting the quality plan, organizations have significantly reduced their construction costs.

    Construction documents are distributed via a secure and controlled environment. Policies, processes and procedures can be quickly translated into paperless forms and workflows that are easily integrated across the multiple organizations normally involved in a construction project. The logging, creation, distribution, tracking, and response to: bid packages, RFIs, change requests, change orders, issues logs, etc. are performed on-line.

    The Paragon Cost Management System allows owners and programme/project managers the ability to track actual costs against a budget. Reporting tools help keep projects on track financially by comparing actual results to predicted results for a given project milestone.


    Maintenance/Operation phase:

    Sword CTspace solutions provide a controlled environment to manage the configuration of an existing facility. The as built configuration is used for ongoing engineering support, general maintenance, regulatory compliance, and disaster recovery.
