Whether it’s a simple PDF file or a complex CAD drawing, the need to share information is crucial to all industries, particularly product and asset-intensive industries. Enterprise engineering and asset information is typically only accessible by core engineering groups. However, it is required by the rest of an organization to effectively and securely perform operations, such as maintenance and repairs, project planning and execution, and change management. By delivering a framework that enables asset and product information to flow freely throughout the enterprise, AutoVue allows users to capitalize on existing information assets contained within all enterprise systems, vastly improving business processes and workforce productivity.

Project-intensive businesses in a variety of industries require solutions, such as Oracle’s Primavera, to effectively plan, manage, and control complex projects and project portfolios. Oracle’s AutoVue enhances Primavera solutions with visualization of engineering, asset, building and contract documents, enabling all stakeholders to view and digitally collaborate on project documents in the appropriate business context, for improved collaboration, decision making, and project execution.
