Collaboration is a set of features that enable users to collaborate around ENOVIA data in various ways. Users can with the help of a modern and user-friendly UI engage in discussions around one or more objects in the system. And with the help of instant notifications, they always up do date on what is being discussed and are able to quickly add replies to a discussion.
All data at the same place
A lot of the daily communication for system users is normally done through emails. The reason for that is that earlier there was no good way of handling this in the system.
A downside of using emails is that you handle the communication in one application and have all the data in another. But when using TVC Collaboration you can have the communication where it should be, together with the data in the system. And in this way you will always keep track of the discussions, they are not lost in the user’s mail applications.
Features that make life easy
Collaboration is in many ways effective but some of my favorite features are:
Allows the users to quickly get updated on new discussions and replies to existing ones.
EXALEAD Powered Filters
EXALEAD powered filters is a great way of configuring how to load discussions and also allows the users to quickly filter among them. And all with the great speed of EXALEAD!
The inbox gives the users a great overview of all discussions they are participating in and a way to very quickly make a reply.
Communicate with everyone in ENOVIA
A number of customers are currently on its way to roll out this functionality in their systems. We have gotten a really good response and look forward to having more customers installing and benefitting from this functionality during the coming months.
We have put a lot of effort into this component since we made the first release over a year back. Each new release has added more new features, improved existing functionality and added more configurability. It has matured a lot since the first release and we look forward to add even more features in the coming releases.
All ENOVIA installations could benefit highly from installing and using the Collaboration component.
It enables users of all different roles to collaborate freely in a way that wasn’t possible before. And since the product development team felt that this functionality was something that everyone could appreciate we decided to make Collaboration a part of Value Components Core. This means it is freely available to anyone that has an existing installation of Value Components.
If you are an existing TECHNIA (TechniaTranscat) customer you can simply download the latest release of Value Components from products.technia.com. The administration guide contains information on server/client requirements and details on how to install it.

There is Hope for the Construction Industry
Lars Albinsson, Creative Process Consultant at Maestro Design & Management, said, “more complex buildings are being made, but there have been very little or no production gains in construction since World War II,” according to US studies,” and “costs are being pushed to tenants.” In Sweden, construction costs have doubled compared with the Consumer Price Index since the 1990s. So what is the problem?
