Normally the process of handover is quite troublesome as the number of documents are large and all of them have to be delivered to the Owners team in a systematic manner for the Owner to Operate and Maintain the Plant over its lifecycle.
tBits CollabWrite assists the Owners, EPC Contractors and EPCM's by ensuring that all the documents are available in a systematic manner for the team to export only the as-Built Drawings into a CD / DVD or ISO File and handing over the data set to the owner. The As-Built Documents can also be handed over along with the complete meta-data exported into the format in which it is expected by the Owner's Team
