Developed to meet the needs of product-centric companies

PROOM streamlines the way you collaborate on projects with customers, partners, and suppliers.

Technical documentation

The ability to confidentially and transparently exchange technical documents and information when collaborating with customers, partners, and suppliers plays a critical role in the manufacturing and engineering realm. Conventional methods like email and FTP fail to live up to complex coordination and documentation requirements.

The solution is PROOM – your collaboration suite:

  • Everybody is up to date: Once they have been connected to PROOM, files will be automatically synchronized, giving every project member instant access to the same documents in their most current versions.
  • Everyone works together: The project room provides full control over who is authorized to do what and when and keeps a log of all activities.
  • Everybody is in the loop: PROOM integrates with your existing environment and processes.
  • Everybody follows the same rules: Access controls are in place and all activities related to a document or project are logged to ensure compliance standards. PROOM is available as a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution and can be set up in no time.

Files backup and up to date document versions

Your development projects often involve large drawings, CAD models, or other technical documents that are frequently modified. You have to keep your team up to date regarding the latest versions or versions approved and communicate these changes to other project members and teams. When everyone works in their own systems, an information gap is simply inevitable. Companies that rely on email as their primary method of communication find themselves struggling with different file versions, local copies, and information chaos.

Exchange confidential documents and keep your communication with PROOM under control!

  • Benefit from a confidential way to exchange development and design data and technical project documents of any size.
  • Use digital project rooms to seamlessly integrate your processes with those of your partners.
  • Centrally manage any documents uploaded to PROOM and set granular access permissions.
  • Always work with the most recent version and collaborate with other project members in real-time in a single tool environment.

Always know the latest state of the procurement process and controll collaboration with your suppliers

Technical purchasing is the liaison between internal developers and manufacturing teams on the one hand, and different suppliers and service providers on the other hand. In order for your projects to succeed, it is paramount that everybody is always talking about “the same thing” and basing their work on the right and timely information. Every project member needs to be in the loop about what has been discussed and agreed upon regarding contracts and schedules.

PROOM is the solution for all of your document exchange and project collaboration needs!

  • Procurement documents need to be uploaded only once and then maintained from a single point of control.
  • Everyone involved works with the most current documents.
  • You assign access permissions and make sure that RFP bidders cannot access competing bids.
  • As a purchaser you can monitor the status of your documents and your tasks and schedules at any time.
  • You know exactly who accessed which files und who uploaded files and when and which issues still need to be addressed.

Technical project collaboration in digital teams

The successful completion of your projects hinges on your ability to ensure effective communication between everyone involved. Conventional methods of communication like email, FTP or separate video conferencing tools are not up to this task. Moving your data exchange to the cloud with the sharing and collaboration suite PROOM provides you with an efficient way to secure and control your communication in a single environment.

We used to have multiple drawings at our different locations and no one knew which one was up to date. Now, we don’t have to worry about that anymore. PROOM makes sure that the data we work with is always valid. No more guessing which document is the most recent.

This data exchange platform has put us in control of the way we exchange documents in our projects. We also use the virtual project rooms to provide a service to our customers. They can access them at any time to find out if we have added new data.

We rely on the standard Microsoft Azure technology. Microsoft Azure is ISO/IEC 27001 certified. The servers are located exclusively in Europe.

Authentication & password encryption
Users must authenticate themselves before accessing PROOM. They can choose their own password, which is then encrypted and invisible to the PROOM administrator (zero knowledge authentication).

User permissions
Custom permissions at both the project room and folder level provide access control and maximum data security in PROOM Documents. Sensitive files that are to be made available to certain users only can be hidden from other users. Collaboration project rooms can be created and managed only by their respective owners; and only the owners are permitted to invite and manage project members.

Activity logs for documents
Built-in and ready-to-print activity logs allow users to get an instant overview of who did what with which files and when.

Validity periods for PROOM Documents project rooms and files
The project rooms and the files they contain are never automatically deleted. When uploading a file, users can specify a validity period. When the validity period ends, the file can only be visible to the user who uploaded it and to the project room manager.
