  • Faster distribution of documents and shorter response times
  • Easy to use
  • Overview of the current status of tendering
  • Access security and traceability

Digital Archive

conjectPM Digital Archive

Archiving of information, documents and messages in a project

The conjectPM digital archive is a copy of the project data held in the collaboration. This can either be made at the end of a project as a record or for handover to asset owners or as an interim data drop during the project.

  • Audit-proof
  • Traceability of decisions even when a project has been concluded
  • Time-saving thanks to the outsourcing of project archiving

The conjectPM digital archive covers the basic functions is created for you by CONJECT. It will be sent on a secure DVD or hard disc depending on the size of the archive.

 

Document Qualification

"Distiller" takes data from the collaboration platform and uses it to generate a user-defined set of documents and drawings and files the results into the Data Room (conjectDR).

  • Fast and easy creation of the target documentation for due diligence, certifications (DGNB/LEED/BREEAM), valuations or as-built documentation
  • Defined approval and provision processes are ensured
  • Overview of outstanding tasks, approvals and missing documents
  • Process-controlled updating of target documentation

Thanks to its document qualification option, the conjectPM collaboration platform meets the specifications from phases 8 and 9 of the Official Scale of Fees for Services by Architects and Engineers (HOAI), in which project supervision and control are listed.

You will find more information on document qualification in the conjectPM collaboraton platform in the "Distiller" product sheet and "conjectDR" product sheet.

 

Interfaces (API)

conjectPM API – Cross application integration

The conjectPM API (Application Program Interface) enables fast and secure integration of the collaboration platform with other applications.

The API enables the exchange of project information between the collaboration platform and other software applications. Moreover, data no longer needs to be manually entered into various different systems.

This allows you to create a shared data environment on your project, even if you are using other systems to carry out some project tasks.

Familiar but aging systems can also be integrated with in the collaboration platform via the programming interface.

  • Automatic data exchange between conjectPM and other (internal) software applications such as document management systems, SAP or Oracle
  • Creation of your own mobile applications with the aid of the APIs
  • Integration of conjectPM into your familiar working environment
  • Enhanced data quality and increased efficiency
  • Reduction in the number of manual errors
  • Heightened user acceptance
Security

conjectPM Security

Security

Protecting your project data

Security and availability of project data is a key concern for any project team, from user access controls to a continually evolving infrastructure security process conjectPM works to ensure you data is safe:

  • The operational reliability of the conjectPM project space guarantees 99.5 percent availability of your data thanks to the multiple redundancy of servers, emergency power units and fire-protected server cabinets.
  • The user security function protects data against unauthorised access by means of a firewall. conjectPM only accepts connections with 1024-bit encryption (SSL).
  • Infrastructure security is ensured by a professionally managed computer centre with multi-level access control.

For more information on how we secure your data please read the "conjectPM Security" white paper.
