Vico Software Debuts Doc Set Manager

Organizes and Compares Drawings Sets with Ease


Boulder, CO - August 19, 2009 - Vico Software, the leader in BIM for Construction, will debut its latest product, Doc Set Manager, on this week's Fridays with Vico webinar.  The new product is designed specifically for collaborative project teams who work with thousands of pages of drawings.  Now instead of combing through the pages manually, running the extremely costly risk of missing a change that brings a project to its knees, users can load PDFs and DWGs into the Document Register and see which drawings have changed, which are missing, and which need attention.


Here's how it works...


Imagine you had one box where you could dump all the construction drawing sheets, thousands of them, from DD 10% to DD 25%, DD 50%, and the final CDs.  Now imagine that this box sorted all the pages, compared the versions, and alerted you when a change was detected between two versions.


Sound too good to be true? 


The goodness continues.  The box, this Document Register, serves as the hub for all drawings and changes.  Now you can move on to the virtual light table and review the changes with three different modes: slider, side-by-side, and color-coded highlights.  Now you can cloud the changes, make notes/comments, create RFIs, and even assign teammates to investigate the changes.


Now for the cool. You can take snapshots of the clouds and RFIs and email them to colleagues.  You can report on them according to status or ownership. 


All of a sudden, you don't fear the 4:30pm FedEx delivery man.
