THE ROLE OF 

Your Digital Librarian

Every MySmartPlans software project comes with a dedicated Digital Librarian. Our Digital Librarian will become a vital member of your team and take the burden of information management off your staff’s shoulders. The Digital Librarian is at the intersection of all information and communication, adding clarity, auditing mistakes, obtaining missing information, organizing, and optimizing.

QUICK SET UP

Your Digital Librarian sets up and makes changes to your customizable project dashboard. Additionally, they manage and populate all project data, while continuously providing technical support and training to every member of the project.

PROCESS EXPERTS

Each Digital Librarian is an expert in project information management, electronic documents and real-time data. They ensure disciplined processes are enforced and that data is complete and accurate.

CLOSEOUT

Need your closeout documents? Have them today, not next year. Your Digital Librarian makes that happen – including but not limited to punch lists, O&M, warranty data training videos and full integration into your facilities management system.

NO OTHER SYSTEM COMPARES WITH THE POWER OF MySmartPlans

All your project information is within one click of a user-friendly icon. MySmartPlans brings together project information from all participants into a single, collaborative virtual workroom - tracking changes, verifying requirements, and keeping plans up to date. How do we accomplish this? 

REDUCE DATA ENTRY

Does your project struggle with construction management software? When outdated information is all that lives in your software, it’s only a matter of time before users stop paying attention, and as a result mistakes are made. So, decide today, enough is enough! Our Digital Librarians organize, support data entry, gather knowledge from other systems, protect your project from costly litigation which protects your budget! Build to defend.

CLOSEOUT FROM DAY ONE

Construction is important but maintaining completed projects for the foreseeable future is equally important. MySmartPlans allows users to ensure that all transferred data will become available to maintenance staff the day construction is completed. With our Smart Rooms, project owners feel at peace that all information they’ll need is at the touch of a button.
