DATAflor Construction file


The DATAflor Construction file is an in DATAflor BUSINESS Integrated document management system for storing and managing the in BUSINESS generated printouts as well as external files and emails. The following file types are supported: * .doc, * .jpg, * .bmp, * .tif, * .xls, * .txt, * .pdf, * .ppt. E-mails from Microsoft Outlook can be integrated as well as direct reading in via a workstation scanner.

The construction file is available within the project management, the addresses, the standard services, the device management and in the invoice receipt.

Program areaUsage
Project management - all documents, information and pictures of a construction site
- Documentation of the construction progress, protocols, letters
- Documents can also be assigned to special hierarchy levels and positions
Addresses all the documents you need for a customer or employee interview
Standard services Installation instructions, product descriptions, images
device management Operating instructions, TÜV reports, repair documents
invoice Received PDF file or scan product of the received invoice printout

The assignment of the documents to in BUSINESS generated printouts are carried out automatically. In addition, the keywords (metadata: creator, document type and number, date, project and LV number, ...) are automatically filled by the software.

On the tab Documents the documents saved for the selected or opened project / LV / position / address / device / incoming invoice are displayed. This gives everyone involved in the project quick access to the relevant information.

Example: Construction file of a construction site

A search of all keywords finds documents whose assignment you no longer know. The automatic indexing of text documents also enables a search via file contents.

The versioning of documents manages different processing statuses and keeps the unchanged original.

Each saved document can be given a resubmission date and assigned to you or a colleague. The permanent retrieval of the resubmission enables structured work. The connection of the follow-up to the Microsoft Outlook tasks enables access to information also on mobile devices (iPhone, etc.).

To work with the documents in the construction file, every user of the construction file needs unrestricted access to the files belonging to the documents in the network. If you do not want to allow the readability of the files belonging to the documents in the construction file in the file system of your network, you can save these files in encrypted form. This means that all files of the construction file are automatically encrypted and only from DATAflor BUSINESS can be opened. The file name and the file type are encrypted in the network file system so that the files cannot be decrypted by DATAflor BUSINESS are not readable.
