Companies or departments that need to manage drawings and documents in the same repository on a project basis. Common industries we serve are Engineering, Architecture, Transportation, Utilities, Oil & Gas, and Manufacturing. Project files are stored in their native file format so clients can integrate documents with legacy ERP and Mapping systems. Reference files are also managed by Dv TDM without requiring a third party application.
