WorkPoint 365 makes it fast and easy to build modular solutions – with no development or coding.
WorkPoint 365 structures data via SharePoint and bridges to Microsoft 365 – As a result, you receive a seamless and future-proof cloud solution.
Together with the automated classification and inheritance of data, oversight and control is ensured, which makes it possible to scale WorkPoint 365 for an enterprise solution.
WorkPoint makes it fast and easy to archive and journalize mails. By integrating a drag and drop functionality combined with an intuitive search tool, this saves users in many hours of systemizing their mails.
Large-scale construction projects with complex tasks require an overview. Implementation of WorkPoint 365 Document & Project management solution in Microsoft 365 by partner Fellowmind.
Operating as a design and building contractor, Aarsleff Construction undertakes the overall coordination of small and large construction and infrastructure projects. The projects involve complex tasks and require an overview as well as documentation in all phases.
Morten Neegaard Olesen, Head of the Cable & Pipe Section within Aarsleff Construction, explains,
”In our line of business it is important to document everything we do, and we operate with all kinds of document files from the initial tender material and drawings to offers, contracts, reports etc. It is not unusual that some projects involve maybe 100.000 emails. So we needed to renew our systems to handle the document flow and the increasing demand for controlling and sharing documents externally”.
Aarsleff Construction was searching to replace existing systems with a more user-friendly system to handle the immense document flow, as well as creating an overview of the many tasks in a project.
The main challenges were:
”Most suppliers we talked with presented a solution based on SharePoint Online”,
– says Morten Neegaard Olesen.
”However Fellowmind (formally ProActive) showed us a solution with WorkPoint as the main database across everything, and a key selling point was the WorkPoint Express giving easy access to all project data from MS Office software. Another advantage to us was the fact that WorkPoint is based on SharePoint Online. With minor adjustments to fit our workflows, we knew that it was plug & play so we wouldn’t have to wait for special coding”.
Document & Project Management with WorkPoint 365 and WorkPoint Express
With the assistance of WorkPoint partner Fellowmind a document and project management solution was set up customized to the workflows of Aarsleff Construction. WorkPoint Express, a plugin for Microsoft for emails and documents was also implemented to support the writing of documents directly in the project file and for a quick overview when working in Office 365.
Total document management
”We now have improved our control of our documents, and everything is easier to locate,”
– explains Morten Neegaard Olesen.
”A very important issue as we cannot close and hand-over a project without documentation.”
Controlled user management
”Former use of sharing documents by i.e. OneDrive or WeShare has been replaced by WorkPoint where it is easy to set up a project and provide access for external partners and sub-contractors without compromising data security”,
– states Morten Neegaard Olesen.
WorkPoint is integrated into a calculation programme and a PDF programme and forms the database of further integration possibilities.
Depending on the project, various stages and documents are needed. With WorkPoint, Aarsleff can easily follow the stage of a given project and also gain a total overview of all projects.
Drag & Drop
The 400 current users are happy with the standard function of drag & drop when working with documents and emails in the Express.
”We have gotten a more automated solution where archiving is easy. It is my experience that we’ve improved the available tools for our colleagues with a tool that supports their work processes better,”
– concludes Morten Neegaard Olesen.
