As a cloud-based Common Data Environment (CDE) EPLASS realises the digital review and approval process for infrastructure projects of any size. Intelligent digitalisation ensures the success of construction projects and reduces time, costs and effort. EPLASS develops digital solutions for the construction industry and supports cross-company cooperation in drawing and document management for a wide range of projects. In addition, the range of services includes solutions for process management, including building information modelling (BIM).
We, as EPLASS project collaboration GmbH, demonstrate our decades of experience in the field of infrastructure and large-scale projects.
It all began in 1996 with an idea contest held by Deutsche Bahn for the new Nuremberg-Ingolstadt line , the aim of which was to digitally map the entire review and approval process for the project. With the win, the idea was born on a piece of paper and so in 1999 our company was founded as SEIB InformationsTechnologie Consult GmbH (SEIB ITC).
In the course of the last 20 years we have developed into an internationally active company and additional products have been added to the original Drawing Management system, such as BIM Collaboration, Objection- and Condition Management as well as Document-, Defect- and Protocol Management and many more in the area of internet-based cooperation. In order to have a consistent presence on the market, we have renamed ourselves into our product EPLASS (Elektronisches PlanmanagementSystem SEIB) in 2012.

The EPLASS project manager consults particularly in:
- Definition and creation of workflows for drawings and documents
- Process definition and optimization
- Design of forms
- Creating drawing numbers and file naming conventions
- Time management
- Controlling and reporting
- Use of additional modules like Defect Management or Claim Management
- Handover at project end (keyword: digital construction file)
- and many more
A workflow (= plan process) is an instrument for flexibly mapping formalized business processes. An EPLASS Workflow intelligently automates processes and structures. External project participants and service providers are also integrated. A workflow serves the efficient organisation and coordination of the cooperative work.
- Workflows are the foundation of most EPLASS projects. Together with the EPLASS project manager, the processes and people involved in the process are defined. From this, workflow diagrams are created to visualise the processes. With the help of EPLASS, different project participants can check sequentially and in parallel.
- With the viewer integrated in EPLASS, documents and plans are checked online and digitally. A download of the documents is not necessary. EPLASS automatically merges the comments and review notes at the end of a parallel review. In the workflow, the deadlines for the processing of the individual tasks are also defined.
- For the processing of workflow tasks different groups are defined. A distinction can be made between users who are authorized to sign and users who are not. Versions can also be implemented in which a "four-eye check" by two reviewers is required before a document can be forwarded.
