They have seen the power of AutoPREP being used and realizes the tremendous time saving capabilities of the product in their own construction management and design processes.
The Problem: Processing Design Drawings and discerning revisions
Like many construction companies was struggling with the challenge of receiving continual design revision drawings from architects, engineers and consultants. In some cases they amounted to thousands per week that had to analyze for cost impacting revisions along with reissuing them to all subcontractors and vendors for the entire project. That involved determining parent drawings from X-Refs and resolving problem files with corrupt, disassociated or missing x-references. They were literally overwhelmed with this task and had created entire departments of people to do nothing but handle these tedious, repetitive and time consuming tasks.
This process had become standard operating procedure not only for them– but virtually every Construction Company and design firm dealing with continual updated drawings as part of the overall project. They, being a leader in the implementation of technology within the construction industry knew there had to be a better way. After consulting with Joe Reghetti and witnessing how his new program AutoPREP could automate the entire process of resolving problem files, separating them into parent, X-Ref and standalone, removing redundant entities and comparing revisions, they wanted to apply the technology for themselves.
AutoPREP – The Solution
After running their first Pilot Project with AutoPREP, their project managers and design teams were astounded with the results. The time savings realized by automating repetitive redundant tasks along with the speed and total accuracy of finding and graphically delineating each and every drawing modification was priceless. AutoPREP’s performance simply changed the way they viewed future projects with regard to estimating timelines and project costs. Not only for the time savings of performing these tasks by batch processing thousands of drawings automatically after hours but also the accuracy of finding all modifications. Catching just one change that might have been missed through human error could save the company thousands of dollars many times over. They felt that AutoPREP was a game changer for them and not only would allow them to save time, realize new profits but win and produce more work in less time than they ever thought possible.
The CEO had always been a proponent of new technology but had grown skeptical of many of the new products that had been touted as time savers. He said that AutoPREP had saved them thousands of dollars on the very first Pilot Project. He stated that the curve to implement AutoPREP was virtually undetectable due to the ease of installation and the speed at which his staff were able to implement the program. They had previously performed these never ending tedious tasks associated with reconciling, cleaning up and comparing drawings. With the time saved the staff are more effectively utilized on more meaningful and profitable tasks.
After their review and evaluation of the Trial Versions of AutoPREP, They believe that they could save significant time and realize new profits on each project by implementing AutoPREP firm wide. When we translated our review and observation of AutoPREP in to dollars, management is very excited about the possibilities of using AutoPREP in our drawing preparation of the background for design. Prior to AutoPREP there simply was not a solution available in the marketplace. Thank You for creating AutoPREP! They believe implementing AutoPREP Software will change how their operation functions. They will have to go through the often difficult task of retooling departments and reducing staff s that had previosuly been hired to do nothing but drawing processing for clean up, compare etc. AutoPREP Software gives us the competitive edge we need in today’s market!
