Green Design: Build a Smarter Architectural Practice with Efficient Content Management

Minimize your environmental impact and Maximize your legacy.

With construction costs on the rise and consumers looking to go “green” in every aspect of their daily lives, architectural firms are searching for ways to improve everyday business processes and increase productivity. Project participants need access to documents (emails, meeting minutes, accounting records, blueprints, CAD drawings, and photographs) for years to come regardless of their original format. A single project can end up filling several file cabinets. Those firms that have done their best to store information on the network still have trouble finding documents at a later date, or not being able to access them off-site.

Technology is an essential part of improving a project’s timeline and helping the environment at the same time. Toshiba will teach you how to keep every member of your project team on the same page, use electronic stamps that show who knows what and who’s working with which particular document version. We will help your firm avoid errors, save time & money, dramatically reduce paper usage, keep to your budget, and go “green”.

Tuesday, August 26, 2008 - Noon - 1:30pm. This event is complimentary and open to all. Lunch will be provided, so RSVPs are a must.
