► DFS™ 3.4 Overview
Dominion Blue has been providing expert document reproduction and distribution to the Vancouver AEC community for over 100 years. DFS is an application that provides robust document management capabilities throughout the project lifecycle. Specifically, DFS provides the following functionality:
To manage the workflow for your projects, DFS provides two user interfaces:
► Windows Remote Application
The DFS Windows Remote Application runs on the local computer as a native windows application, but connects to a remote web server for services and data. This provides the rich user interface of a windows application with the easy deployment and maintenance of a web application.
The Windows application provides many advantages. Support for multiple windows, drag-n-drop and persistent internet connections provides productivity and reliability that web applications can’t match. With the DFS Windows application, a user can access DFS from any PC. They simply have to connect to a special page or link we set up on their web site and click on the DFS button. DFS will then install the appropriate software on the PC each time it is executed.
DFS allows you to manage the way you communicate with other people on the project and also how you store, access, and distribute documents. It contains tools that allow you to manage your documents, bid packages, contacts, notifications, reports and many other things related to your project.
► Web Portal
The DFS web portal allows a user the ability to distribute documents, collaborate with project team members and elicit bid responses through a web interface. The web portal provides many configuration options. Talk to our DFS team for more information.
