ProjectWise: Unveiling Limitations in Document Control

Exploring ProjectWise for your document control needs? Be aware of potential limitations that could impact your workflow and efficiency.

  • Challenges in adapting to dynamic content tagging throughout project lifecycles.

  • Limited deployment options may result in potential disruptions.

  • Potential challenges in navigating a potentially complex licensing structure.

  • May lack the versatility and adaptability offered by M-Files in LCAB.

LCAB: Elevating Document Control to Unprecedented Heights

LCAB allows project content to be tagged with descriptors relevant to the project during the project lifecycle. In addition, you can ascribe asset or corporate information to that content at either a specific point in the project or content lifecycle or right from project inception. That can then trigger a slew of additional metadata requirements related to the asset information. This can then be populated by the Asset or operations team without any disruption to the project team. Integrations to most asset management systems is easily achieved through the REST API or database table synchronisation.

ProjectWise may present challenges in adapting to the intricacies of large-scale projects, lacking the nuanced capability to tag content dynamically throughout the project lifecycle. Its rigidity in content management may result in a disjointed workflow, hindering collaboration and causing disruptions during transitions. Furthermore, the integration process with asset management systems may prove to be cumbersome, lacking the effortless efficiency that LCAB effortlessly provides through its REST API and database table synchronization. In essence, choosing ProjectWise may limit your project’s potential for streamlined document control and hinder the collaborative, efficient processes that LCAB effortlessly delivers.
