Why Hyperlinking Is So Hot In Construction This Year

Damian Torres, National Director of Hyperlinking Services for ARC Document Solutions, has an insider’s view on how construction managers are handling increasingly complex projects. He hears their complaints and needs daily, and he is still encouraged by how they continue to adopt new tools.

Many firms are handling increasingly tough jobs—some are even doing bigger projects year by year—by streamlining operations through document control. The intersection of various construction technologies and long-used Web technology are providing big benefits for companies. Companies are seeing the value of hiring the right consultants to oversee some of their work. In a recent interview covering hyperlinking, the state of construction industry, and other industry topics, Torres discussed what’s hot and what’s not in the construction industry.

ARC: Are you finding that a lot of companies are outsourcing the management of their documents to vendors who specialize in that work?

Torres: I’m learning that companies are using an average of five applications per project. That complexity is leading many firms to turn the management of those applications over to ARC. We are streamlining their projects with hyperlinks and project management services.

ARC: Why is hyperlinking so hot nowadays? Is it of greater interest to businesses these days, and if so, why?

Torres: Yes, it is of greater interest. Many companies often want us to use hyperlinking to ensure that the current set of documents stays current for the life of the construction project.

ARC: Hyperlinking is an old technology, basically as old as the internet. Why is it trending these days in construction?

Torres: For various reasons. These companies are going green, trying to save money, and be efficient in every part of construction. Using hyperlinks helps them do that. Mobility, like the ability to access digital files on the go, has become a much more efficient and streamlined process.

ARC: Is Document Management overlooked or overrated as a source of potential savings?

Torres: It is a bit overlooked, and again, it goes back to the fact that several apps are often used on just one project. It is difficult for someone, however experienced, to handle all of this information on their own. Handling that information is costly for our customers if they do it in-house. Doing so means they have to hire an extra person, with a specific skill set, to handle this task of managing documents. Instead, the company can give ARC a call. We are specialists in construction documents, and we have plenty of offices, well-trained employees, and all of the skills and tools necessary to handle these, and many other, tasks.
