Exquando and Chapoo Join Forces to Provide Cloud-based Project Documentation Solutions for the Construction Sector
Ghent, Belgium – August 28, 2013 – Chapoo®, provider of a cloud-based project information and collaboration platform, and Exquando, a company specialized in the provision of services and advice in document management, today announced they will join forces and share expertise to provide document management services for construction projects. With this goal in mind Wavre-based Exquando has been certified as a partner for the Chapoo Premium service, a complete Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution to vastly improve project team collaboration and productivity, especially in Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC).
To better advice its customers about their choices in the area of document management systems, Exquando is continuously keeping itself up-to-date on any developments in the market space for such platforms. We have found the Chapoo offering particularly attractive due to the simplicity of its use and its set-up, and because it is very affordable also for smaller organizations,” said Marc Ansoult, Exquando Managing Director.
The Chapoo Service is an accessible platform already in use at several construction and engineering sites throughout Belgium including the train station of the city of Mons and the new hospital Chirec on the Delta site in Brussels.
In light of our collaboration, several Exquando consultants have been provided with in-depth training on the Chapoo Premium service,” said Marc Ansoult, Exquando Managing Director. “We also launched a project to implement Exquando’s documents control procedures within the Chapoo platform.”
As a cloud-based service, customers can start to use the Chapoo service through a simple web browser, without the need to acquire hardware, configure software or worry about updates or backups. Project data and documents are accessible from anywhere and by anyone, but of course under secure role-based access control by the project administrator.
Exquando and Chapoo share a common vision as to the challenges in the area of document management, and through our collaboration we expect to be able to offer our customers with solutions tailored to their specific needs,” said Mark Van Den Bergh, Chapoo COO.
Pricing for the Chapoo Premium service starts at €1500/year. In addition, the Exquando team can deliver training, implement document structures, prepare workflows, all specifically tailored to the project at hand.
