AUGI Poll Update - Who Oversees YOUR Business?

This month’s poll topic was delving into the management of your technical documents. Who oversees and controls this vital part of your business?

The most common source of control is the drafters and designers themselves. One third of our respondents chimed in with that answer.

As a dedicated document manager with industry knowledge, I am somewhat appalled that the 2nd most popular document manager is no one!

There is a respectable showing of CAD and BIM Managers, controlling 22% of the digital information.  The remaining options were not nearly so popular amongst users, trailing in much lower.

You can check out the conversation in the CAD Management forum to see a detailed look at how other companies are safeguarding or regulating their precious assets - and why. Feel free to chime in with your feedback there.
