EADOC enables construction management professionals to track construction project documentation including design clarifications, inspectors’ daily reports, special inspections, memos, action items, deficiency items, and schedules. EADOC also uniquely integrates project cost controls, including budget, funding sources, contracts, schedule of values, pay estimates, change requests, and change orders, with this project information.

The solution, which is immediately accessible to the project team, provides fast access to documents and cost information from virtually anywhere. At the same time, it incorporates security features to make sure the right people have access to the right information.

Harry Vitelli, Bentley Systems senior vice president, construction and field, said, “We welcome the EADOC team, including founder Eric Law, to Bentley. Eric’s expertise will be invaluable as we advance ProjectWise for more comprehensive project delivery. In parallel, we will be extending EADOC’s information mobility, for instance, through Bentley mobile apps including Navigator Mobile and ProjectWise Worksite.”

Eric Law said, “As a former member of the Bentley Developer Network, our team is extremely pleased to now be part of Bentley. Together we can take information mobility across design and construction workflows, as well as into operations, to new levels for small and large organizations alike.”

EADOC, LLC was founded by Law in February of 2006. The idea for the EADOC construction management solution came from Law’s experience working for a large contractor on commercial and industrial projects as a project engineer. Users of EADOC include construction managers at:
·      engineering/construction management firms - for example, Brown & Caldwell, Carollo Engineers, CH2M HILL, HDR, HNTB, Jacobs Engineering, MWH Constructors, and Arcadis;

·      facility owners - for example, East Bay Municipal Utility District; City of Bend, Oregon; Lee County, Florida; Central Utah Water Conservancy District; and West Valley Mission Community College District.


The many benefits of the EADOC solution include improved:
·      accessibility - keeping construction projects up to date with real-time information;
·      accountability - providing faster return on investment;
·      productivity - enabling time savings of up to 30 percent;
·      efficiency - reducing costs;
·      risk mitigation - tracking and controlling risk to mitigate cost and schedule impacts.

Commenting on EADOC, Ron Perkins, construction services manager, HDR, said, “The more I know of the risks coming up ahead of time, the more I can mitigate them. EADOC allows you to take the output from those risk registers, with probability and cost, and incorporate them into the cost module. You can identify the risk, identify the probability, identify the potential cost, and that allows you to track those costs - so that your client or the owner understands and knows what the risks are and the potential costs.”

Kenny Klittich, mechanical engineer, Brown & Caldwell, said, “I have worked with both ‘manually’ managed construction services, as well as competing project management software, and EADOC is the first to reduce my ‘paper-pushing’ time to zero. Internet-based access to construction tasks (RFIs, submittals), as well as the latest drawings and specs, saves me tremendous amounts of time tracking down these resources and verifying they are the latest version. EADOC is a great product.”
