However, these documents are often distributed over different workstations, causing the multiplicity of the same plan or even the loss of information. According to the IDC, “38% of users are faced with the problem of managing enterprise versions of their corporate data”. 


By equipping itself with a Technical EDM tool for the Design Office, all these documents are centralized in a single point.
