It is common for teams to digitise and use different software, but systems and data are often not connected, and they’re frequently stored in separate locations. Therefore there is the risk of incorrect or missing information, which can ultimately derail workflows and processes. An ideal solution is by utilising of a single cloud-based construction management platform.
A project management hack into ensuring efficiency is by adopting a single platform that lets project teams collaborate on coordinated, shared designs – regardless of location, role in the project, or stage of the project. Varying needs of teams and contract structures can be fully supported by digital project controls. Whether team members need real-time access to shared workspace, or more strict access control and permissions. Autodesk Construction Cloud plays all these roles and in this post, we’ll be touching on how it is especially beneficial for RFIs.
Reviewing submittals, submitting RFIs, and managing costs are inevitable parts of every construction project, but these workflows can be inefficient and time-consuming. Traditional RFI processes are disconnected and are heavily reliant on email to transport information through the workflow. Not only does this run the risk of response delays and miscommunication, but once an RFI is submitted, the creator has zero visibility into the status of the item. Report generation would also not be a simple process and is limited to the information captured in the RFI log.
Instead of relying on manual, disconnected processes, project teams can utilise Autodesk Construction Cloud to have clear accountability, and maintain transparency while meeting contractual obligations. There are plenty of benefits of controlling RFIs with Autodesk Construction Cloud.
Autodesk Construction Cloud can also provide a better status visibility. RFI creators can easily view RFI statuses, including ball-in-court to track them through the review and approval process. Besides that, data is more connected and by centralising all project data in a shared data environment, teams can connect data across workflows like linking RFIs to potential change orders and meeting items. As soon as an RFI is approved, it can be shared with the entire team instantly, ensuring critical information doesn’t slip through the cracks and is immediately available to all relevant parties. This instant distribution is another huge plus to the workflow of RFI.
