CADM’s Engineering Index provides fast access to drawings

16 November 2009

CAD Management (CADM) has extended the features of its Accordant Locator Commercial Real Estate software with the introduction of the Engineering Index module. This provides a web-based search and retrieval facility for CAD drawings, images and other documents relating to a building and its services.

As such, it provides fast and easy access for FMs, estate managers, engineering departments and authorised service providers to archived information that is required for maintenance, refurbishment and other tasks.

Crucially, Engineering Index uses CADM’s unique database management tools to enable quick and easy import of existing building data, so that users can reap the system’s benefits with minimum delay.

Accessed through a standard web browser, Engineering Index is able to categorise documents by location (e.g. floor by floor), as well as by engineering discipline (heating, air conditioning, lighting, security, fire etc) – as well as by supplier, version, file type, size, and received date. It is fully compatible with all commonly used file formats, which can be uploaded in compressed file formats to minimise storage requirements (typically less than 1Gb per 1000 documents) while maintaining fast access to individual files.

All files can be viewed online or downloaded to a local disk for use in other programs.
