Project Portal user interface

Project collaboration with regulatory compliance

BlueCielo Project Portal is a secure document repository that provides a single point of truth for project information. It follows projects to manage the necessary information in workspaces. Different workspace models can be utilized based on project size (e.g.: capital expense projects into dedicated workspaces, operational expense projects into one single plant maintenance workspace).

As a Cloud-based solution, BlueCielo Project Portal is easily deployed to even the most complex supplier networks. Choose from deployment as a Cloud solution from our hosting center, or deployment on premises.

The repository provides robust access control, version management and audit trail capabilities to ensure compliance with regulations.

 Key capabilities of Project Portal

Master supplier documents lists

Placeholders for documents to be delivered by main suppliers can be created automatically by importing document lists from Microsoft Excel spreadsheets. The document lists can contain a delivery schedule, supplier document numbers, functional location information or any other information needed for document control.

Delivery of document packages

Main system or process equipment suppliers or contractors can deliver entire document packages to BlueCielo Project Portal in one smooth operation that creates new documents or updates existing document versions. Large document packages can be updated, revised, as well as reviewed and approved in large batches.

Delivery status follow-up

Schedule and status information can be added to the document information based on project reporting needs, exported to an excel spreadsheet and later used to update the status information back to the document repository. Automatic notification messages can be set to be sent for documents that are pending or late.

Master Data Management and Handover

After commissioning, the updated and newly created data can be exported from BlueCielo Project Portal and made available to the organization’s asset management solution. The entire project can be archived to prevent further changes while keeping all its data available for future use, inspection and possible litigation processes.

Transmittal Management made easy

BlueCielo Project Portal automatically creates transmittal letters for document deliveries, containing full document distribution information, references, document numbers and revisions. External parties retrieve the transmittal package (documents + transmittal letter) from the portal, so document controllers can monitor retrieval. This provides a full audit trail of activities performed and full security for the content being transmitted.

Security to protect your data

BlueCielo Project Portal provides high security at many levels, including encrypted communication protocols, and authentication at user and document level. Information is provided in a DMZ (DeMilitarized Zone) network, so that external participants do not require access to internal data and workflows.
