Primavera Unifier sits at the heart of your integrated project controls solution, which amongst other functions helps you to manage the document control processes. Whether you are an owner with contractors, or a contractor with clients, during the life of a project there are requirements to collaborate, review and comment on drawings and other document types.
The problems with off-line review
Users of Primavera Unifier would typically complete the drawing review and correction comment processes off-line, with the use of a desktop application and Excel to capture comments.
This requires reviewers to navigate through complex screens and download files outside the system of record, creating disconnected workflows. Whilst the review is being completed, the document controller has no understanding of the percentage complete status. Equally, the consolidator of the correction comments has their work cut out to bring together all the reviewers comments for a subsequent transmittal or submittal process.
Once everyone has finished their reviews and created the Excel list of correction comments, the files must be uploaded and a notification must be sent to the consolidator. The process of correction comment consolidation using desktop applications is laborious and time consuming. Using Excel for comment tracking is a nightmare and not fit for purpose for today’s digital world.

SharePoint 2013, 2016 on-line, on premise, or Office 365
Microsoft SharePoint on-line, on-premise, or Office 365 offers an alternative collaborative electronic review platform, but is limited when it comes to PDF or native CAD drawings.
Kritiki for Microsoft SharePoint enables organisation to electronically review hundreds of document formats, without the need for complex, expensive applications and removes the need to download / upload documents into desktop applications. Kritiki is available directly from the document libraries and all correction comments are stored in a secure container in SharePoint.
Once a review workflow has been completed, Kritiki has a rendition feature which creates a record of all the mark-ups and generates a PDF/A document which gets placed into a SharePoint document library.
