Document Version Control Challenge

Document Version Control Chaos

  1. J. Wyndham Prince had accumulated a huge amount of data from hundreds of projects (past, present and future). Unfortunately, this created a domino effect of challenges:
  • Data became slow to access, outdated and unidentifiable – misfiled, misnamed and deleted.
  • Documents were unmanaged and lost, potentially causing mistakes and litigation risks.
  • Data was inaccessible – locked in local email inboxes and unable to be transferred and shared.

These issues hindered their ability to work flexibly and efficiently collaborate. J. Wyndham Prince identified this and worked alongside 12d Synergy to re-manage their data into an accessible and secure system.
