BMP created a web-based Collaborative Work Environment (CWE) that effectively
adapts to organizational processes and culture. CWE provides users with an Integrated
Digital Environment (IDE) to access and process a common set of documents regardless
of user location or platform. CWE is a mature, robust system; a single point IDE tool
(web, database, windows, and architecture); an ongoing product improvement process with
separate test site and beta testing -- where ideas and suggestions fuel new product improvements.
Features of CWE include:
- Virtual Project Office - A virtual work environment that provides
all authorized users with access to standardized applications ensuring compatibility of
document formats regardless of the user's location or platform.
- Collaborative Working Groups -
A group or team with exclusive access to a section of the virtual
environment. Each group decides who has permission to view its contents.
- File Upload - Enables users to upload and manage files in real time.
All users are immediately notified via e-mail of new files added to their area.
- List Users - Listing of users (program/working group) that includes name, title, contact information,
e-mail addresses, etc.
- Global Calendar -
Provides users with upcoming event information at the program or
working group level.
- What's New -
Automatically informs users of new files, messages, and calendar events that
have been added since they last logged into the system.
- 24-Hour Help Desk -
Continual round-the-clock assistance for users.
