tsaADVET look to integrate CAB-i-NET further with Microsoft SharePoint™. SharePoint™ is being used by many companies to make data freely available within their organisations. It can not, however, manage the complexity of CAD data such as Microstation™, AutoCAD™ etc. with their attached reference / Xref files, version controls requirements and business processes in terms of workflow. These are all areas where CAB-i-NET excels. Therefore, tsaADVET are extending their SharePoint™ integration to allow the existing CAB-i-NET SharePoint™ web parts to include Location Check Out/In of drawings/documents. This will allow SharePoint™ portal users to work on the files and check them back in from anywhere in the world using the internet, provided they have access to the SharePoint™ Portal.
Existing users of CAB-i-NET are extremely interested in these developments and will be working with tsaADVET during the development of the software that will be released later in the year.
