Beat the post strike – collaborate online

One benefit of using a construction collaboration platform to manage a project is, of course, the reduced reliance on conventional paper-based communications. The UK’s Royal Mail is currently enduring its second 48-hour strike, so anything sent by post is going to be hugely delayed. Email and other electronic forms of communication have already taken a lot of correspondence away from the paper-based world, and strikes like this will only accelerate the trend.

Some technology vendors are also trying to take advantage of the situation: for instance, I received an email on Friday from Submit-a-Plan, proclaiming: Beat The Postal Strikes – Make Your Next Building Control Application Online. (Submit-a-Plan was specified and developed in conjunction with LABC services, is run by Resolution Data Management Ltd and is funded by UK local authorities.)
