From the Document Controller on a Major Power Station
Thanks for your response and insight into TDOC. I have been in
document control for over 20 years and there is always an issue with DC
software. As you are aware most companies see DC as a waste of time and
money so no big budget is set aside for the DC software. Normally a
group of managers or directors decide on a product like 'Livelink',
'Aconex', 'Docwise', 'Primavera', etc thinking that it is going take
care of all their document control requirements. To date, these systems
are still not able to provide the basic necessary functionality that is
For the last 13 years I worked for a very large company (which has
now been bought out); we did mega projects all over the world. A few of
the projects were joint ventures where we were forced to use the
software mandated by their partners - like Aconex.
My previous employer never had its own DC software: the IT manager
thought that Livelink would be able to do everything after they had
paid many thousands for it and then the yearly licence fees. Livelink
was just a glorified electronic storage repository!
The new company I have joined have no idea what DC is or what we
do..........it is a requirement by their client. I am very happy with
what I have seen, I just need to 'play' around a little so I can get
familiar with the way you have set things up.
I will definitely stay in touch because I know that we are going to ask questions and pick your brain when I need to. Thank you very much for helping me out so far!!
Note from TDOC: A year later and
this three year project is going well.
From the Head of Document Control for the Warm Homes Scheme
As an administrator in a company the most important thing for me is to have a computer system that works and works well. The TDOC System was bespoked for our company and ihas now been in use with us for 2yrears. There are improvements continually being made. Richard ensures that TDOC is always working effectively and efficiently. His incomparable knowledge of the system is invaluable to me when I need problems fixed and changes made. He always works extremely quickly so that I never have to wait very long for a solution. It is a pleasure to work with someone who is extremely personable and approachable. He instills confidence due to his vast knowledge of the system and extremely diligent nature.
From the Construction Director of a major Irish contractor
"Before deciding on a document control system for the
XXXX Group, there was a number of criteria that was important for our
use. We are a fairly large contractor with a turnover in excess of
£240m. We wanted to implement a system that closely resembled
the methodology and formats used in Europe, good product support and be
ISO9001 compliant. Our previous system was geared more towards the US
way of doing things and very difficult to adapt to some of our unique
What was important to control on our sites was:
Through its' on-going development, TDOC satisfied all our needs and the support received was second to none. Up to date and controlled communication between all team players is vital to us in achieving our project objectives. No other document control system has matched the ease-of-use and accessible report structure compared to TDOC"

From the Technical Director of a major Project Management firm
"We have been involved with TDOC since 1997 during which time the product has undergone considerable development. We have found the product to be robust, and capable of handling large volumes of data. We believe that TDOC is a very good package in a market of very few valid choices."
From the Systems Manager of a large firm of Consulting Engineers
"We have been using TDOC for many years, as a method of recording transmittal of technical documents for large scale construction projects.
During this time, we have found the use of TDOC invaluable as a reference source for the issue of documents to a considerable number of parties.
TDOC has reduced many potential problems in our operation and contributed to significant cost savings on the project.
Aside from the project, the quality of technical support that we have received has been both friendly and efficient. It is for these reasons that we have no hesitation in recommending TDOC to anyone else."
