1 Autodesk Collaborative Project management Connect people, information and processes.
2 Turn ideas into reality. Ideas are the currency of our age and the lifeblood of your organization. But before your ideas can take shape in concrete, steel, and glass, your extended teams must communicate and collaborate effectively. According to The Economist, a $100 million building project generates 150,000 documents, and FedEx earns $500 million per year shipping blueprints across America. The vast majority of project teams share their information the old fashioned way: phone calls, fax transmissions, courier, word of mouth, and written monthly reports. This type of decentralized, ad-hoc information flow often results in an incomplete view of the project and contributes to disputes, delays and claims. Finding a way for owners, architects, engineers, consultants, contractors, and subcontractors to communicate, interact, and share information is the best way to reduce the inherent risks associated with your complex construction projects. To speed your ideas to reality, your teams need collaborative technology that enables anytime, anywhere access to accurate, reliable project information. And they need to follow standardized processes that maximize their efficiency and productivity.

3 Collaborative Project Management It all starts with having your information in one place, centralizing your documents, drawings, communications, contracts, schedules, budgets and forecasts, reports, and more. Business processes are streamlined and information is easily shared across all areas of your business throughout the project lifecycle. Connecting information, people and processes allows you to increase your productivity and optimize your project communication, collaboration and control.

Cost Management Enforce standardized cost management practices for tracking and forecasting expenditures for individual projects or across multi-project programs.
