ProjectWise Deliverables Management Configuration

ProjectWise Deliverables Management provides secure deliverables exchange between business entities. It ensures that deliverables package information can be trusted, speeds up preparation process, and makes it easy to identify and resolve urgent issues.

Key benefits:

  • Provides status visibility of all incoming and outgoing deliverables, and RFIs.
  • Ensures that only authorized contractors and subcontractors have access to deliverables and RFIs.
  • Enables recipients to easily acknowledge, download, review, and respond to the documents through the web portal.
  • Makes the deliverables review process easy to track through email notifications and the built-in audit trail.

User Interfaces for Sending and Receiving Deliverables

ProjectWise Deliverables Management has two interfaces that users can use to send and receive deliverables:

  • the ProjectWise Deliverables Management portal
  • the ProjectWise Deliverables Management connector for ProjectWise Explorer

The ProjectWise Deliverables Management portal is accessible from a web browser and does not need any additional software installed in order to use it. The administrator simply registers a ProjectWise project and then turns on ProjectWise Deliverables Management in that project. If you have ProjectWise Explorer installed, you can also access the same ProjectWise Deliverables Management portal through the ProjectWise Project Portal tab (Preview Pane) which is active whenever you select a work area that is associated to a ProjectWise project.

The ProjectWise Deliverables Management connector for ProjectWise Explorer is a plug-in that you install on top of ProjectWise Explorer. Installing the connector adds a Deliverables Management node within any work area that is associated to a ProjectWise project which has ProjectWise Deliverables Management turned on.

You can send and receive deliverables in either interface. The main difference is that the ProjectWise Deliverables Management connector for ProjectWise Explorer lets ProjectWise users create deliverable packages directly from ProjectWise Explorer that contain ProjectWise documents, whereas the ProjectWise Deliverables Management portal can be used by non-ProjectWise users and lets you create deliverable packages from content uploaded from the local file system.
