Dallas, TX — August 5, 2010 — Systemates Inc., makers of the award-winning construction project software Projectmates, announced an integration partnership with Informative Graphics Corporation, a leader in developing viewing, collaboration, and redaction software. Under the new partnership, Systemates has fully integrated IGC's Brava viewer into Projectmates, combining Projectmates' anywhere access to project information with Brava's any type access to files.
Projectmates users already accustomed to accessing real-time project information from anywhere via a web browser will also be able to view virtually any file format with the built-in Brava viewer. Particularly helpful during the design and construction phases of a project, Brava provides a comprehensive solution so project members can view, redline, and print all types of AEC documents. Brava also eliminates the need to install expensive native software on every desktop. In addition to document viewing and markup tools, Projectmates' versatile document manager has built-in version control, metadata, file routing and approvals, and an audit log that stores a history of file access.
Projectmates has powerful online collaborative tools for everything from document management and two-way bidding to construction workflow, scheduling, and cost tracking," said Hemant Bhave, Vice President of Systemates, Inc. "Augmenting our solution with Brava, we give users an easy way to view, annotate and collaborate on virtually any file. This empowers Projectmates customers to share AEC documents, drawings, specifications, and BIM documents--even with remote project participants."
Streamlining overall project management, including collaboration, is an effective way to increase productivity and efficiency. "We are excited that Brava was selected to be part of Projectmates' construction management software solution," said Jeff Herding, Vice President of Sales for IGC. "Our integrated solution gives a wide array of industries a better way to collaborate--giving project managers a way to save both time and money."
