BOSTON, Mass. — October 29, 2015 – harmon.ie today announced building momentum in the construction industry as organizations increasingly seek ways to overcome costly business challenges by improving workforce collaboration, access and productivity in the field. On-the-go workers need to find relevant information quickly; harmon.ie now offers a collaboration solution made to solve construction industry challenges by improving access to documents and emails with or without network coverage.
Construction companies send enormous numbers of project-related emails and documents to a wide variety of employees, contractors, suppliers and customers. Smooth operations at building sites depend on the constant exchange of these documents and emails, requiring anytime, anywhere access and intelligent document management to easily find the right information. harmon.ie’s solution empowers construction personnel to edit, store, classify, retrieve and collaborate on large amounts of data, in both emails and documents, with a few simple clicks on the desktop or from mobile devices. This simplification and automation of the process encourages rapid user adoption and widespread, consistent use of Office 365 and SharePoint in the office and on the road.
“Our field workers need access to critical documents and emails – anytime, anywhere. Our employees continuously work with approximately 900 templates to correctly handle construction site application procedures, from set-up to handling instructions. This is why enormous volumes of email traffic build up every day,” noted Atilla Kücük, IT division manager, Leonhard Weiss – serving 4,000 employees throughout Europe. “We’ve built a bridge to SharePoint using harmon.ie as a single, central document repository. harmon.ie lets us store, share and access emails as the important documents they are. harmon.ie makes the entire process of document handling easier for the employee, so that use of the SharePoint server has increased massively.”
With harmon.ie, leading construction companies are able to give field workers offline access to important plans, drawings, contact lists and more. In addition, users can annotate PDF documents and drawings and upload pictures from work sites that can be automatically associated with specific building projects – all without relying on network coverage. The harmon.ie solution also gives workers easy access to task lists, calendar events, etc. on their mobile devices.
"harmon.ie offers a huge boon to construction companies that want to tap into the value of the digital workplace by making sure business-critical emails and documents are not lost in the frenetic pace of today’s business,” added Daren Dewbre, managing consultant, Xgility. “With robust solutions for both the desktop and mobile devices, harmon.ie is a complete construction solution offering a reliable repository of traditional documents and emails that the average worker can actually use … and adore.”
