Referenced Drawings (X-Ref)
- Automatic detection of referenced drawings with options for automatic check in and check out for all referenced drawings
- Ability to extract block, layer and attribute drawing information from referenced drawings in addition to the main drawing
Configurable Organization of Data
Organize data in a user configurable hierarchy that is most meaningful to you and meets your existing business processes.
Define and apply security templates defining access levels for objects and actions. Create any number of security templates for unprecedented flexibility and control. The security can be applied up to groups as well as users.
Standardization in File Naming

Compare any 2 versions of drawings or documents visually and find the differences instantly making the review process easier.
Templates can be defined for actions to be taken for documents after certain period of time and assigned to documents, thereby reducing manual intervention of managing the documents.
Visualize object relationships to predict impact of engineering, documentation, or project changes. For example, relate specification databases, drawings, SOPs, design specification document and protocols to each other to visualize the impact of change in one object to all other objects.
Create any number of maintenance/change logs to manually enter and store relevant information. Create one change log for files and another for specification data.
Securely share the data repository internally with project team members and other departments or externally with customers and suppliers.
Create threaded discussion group organized by topic. A history of discussion is maintained.
Attach comments to data objects using free text notes. Pass on instructions and relevant information between shifts and operating personnel.
Search Database Records, Maintenance/Change Logs, Notes and Discussions using keywords.
Run ad hoc queries on database objects and audit trail/e-signature logs using arithmetical and logical operators. Filter information based on Action, Object, User Name and Date Interval.
Full Text Search
Perform a full text search of all files in the File Vault.
Create notifications to selected users and groups based on configurable time periods, data objects and events.
Document Imaging and Indexing
Directly add documents from your scanner irrespective of hardware to eCADinfo with indexing for easy search and retrieval. Additional Document Imaging Module will be required for the same.
The email management module seamlessly integrates with your email client like Microsoft Outlook or Lotus Notes email client. All the incoming and outgoing mails can be archived inside the DMS in respective folders to share the same with other team members.
