This webinar will teach attendees how to determine what the common electronic file-sharing practices that construction teams are using today, assess why current file-sharing practices can be disconnected and problematic, how they can pose risks to the enterprise and when they can actually hinder collaboration among project teams. This event will also discuss how to identify new trends in file-sharing that will lead to better working relationships and easier document retention/retrieval while still tying into advanced business processes.
In this webinar, attendees will learn how global collaboration produces surprising benefits such as a reduction of carbon footprint, as well as how the concept of ‘Information-led design’ inspired the creation of AECOM's world-class collaboration system.
