New Features and Enhancements
We work for our Clients. Features and enhancements to the CIPO platform are directly influenced by construction owners, so all can benefit from a platform built just for them. Here are some exciting new changes released this month. We hope you enjoy.
Destination Folder Autosave
Have you ever struggled to find a list of all your Daily Reports photos, where you can filter and search by name, date, or even location? Well, with CIPO, now you can get organized and consistent across all your projects. Using our Autosave capability, ANY documents you create within ANY CIPO module can now be autosaved within an Agency-specific Project Files hierarchy that you define. Quickly find a PDF copy of the document, along with any attachments consistently across all of your projects and Document Types.
If you have a specific module that you are interested in tracking particular criteria and quickly identifying metrics, this feature is for you. Let's take as an example the Change Orders module. As a PM or Agency, you are interested in identifying areas to improve on your next project. So you Classify each Change Order with your typical classifications, such as E&O, Change in Scope, Requested by GC, Requested by Owner. Now you have a percentage breakdown of each for all your Projects in real-time, among other stats.
Virtual DWGs Updates
Our Virtual DWGs module allows you to markup and relate an area within the drawing to other CIPO documents (i.e., RFIs, Submittals, etc.) without using another 3rd party toolset, henceforth keeping your data centralized. With this latest update, CIPO will now contain a list of standard colors for text and lines, the ability to open related documents from within the Virtual DWGs module, and keeping track of who did what and when on the respective drawing. Additional usability changes are on the way.
