Wireless to the Rescue?

0

If you listen to all the analysts, wireless technology is here to stay, and you had better start developing a strategy-quickly.

International Data Corp. (IDC), www.idc.com, Framingham, Mass., for instance, estimates that by as early as 2002, worldwide mobile Internet subscribers will most likely exceed those on the wired Web.

Suppliers insist that there are a slew of benefits for the construction industry, some of which can be implemented today, while others may take a little more time to fully develop.

Make no mistake, though, the time is now to start exploring your wireless options. Wireless is hot news. Expectations are high among users and suppliers alike. Without question, the pressure to stay competitive is one of the key selling points behind the emergence of wireless-based solutions.

Despite all the hype, construction professionals need to clearly understand all the benefits and challenges that exist in this hot new technology. So before you take the plunge, you might want to take a closer look at how your organization can benefit from the wireless movement.

Features include real-time collaboration and approval process

Annapolis, MD August 26, 2002.┬áThis week’s release of eRoom.net version 6 brings the subscription edition more in line with the collaboration software vendor’s packaged version by adding real-time collaboration, support for approval processes, and an enhanced user interface.

The souped-up version of eRoom.net also carries a price tag 20% higher than its predecessor, with fees ranging from $300 a month for a small eRoom–an online workspace–to $1,200 a month for one that can support as many as 100 participants. But the approval-management capabilities alone are worth the added cost, says Bliss Kaye, CIO of International Design and Construction Online, which is testing the new service.
