Digital Design and RBI Group have developed a new portal to automate the full cycle of cooperation with suppliers during the whole period of construction work. The portal based on Sitefinity platform makes it easier to manage the process and keeps all parties informed.
Since 2015, RBI Group, one of the leaders in premium and business class real estate construction in Russia, has been keeping its processes automated using portals developed by Digital Design. The new portal automates the whole cycle of cooperation with suppliers during construction work and includes the full list of work for each unit. The previous portal version only allowed working with a scan copy for contract processing. The new version perceives a contract as a detailed data set with a list of activities. It keeps every item approved in a RFP and transfers it to the system.
After approving a contract, the whole construction plan for every unit gets to be approved. The production cycle can reach up to 5 years and the activities can be adjusted online. If one of the items is changed during construction the whole plan on the unit can be revised. RBI employees control and approve these changes. When a construction task is completed, it is confirmed in relevant documents and in the system. Therefore, the portal has automated the full construction process.
Alexander Chumbadze, Deputy CTO, RBI Group: “For RBI Group, it’s a valuable business solution to automate cooperation with suppliers. It combines construction work with documentation and makes the construction process clearer”.
