think project! Mobile Version Check

The Mobile Version Check service closes the gap between documents saved in think project! and their printed hardcopy versions. By simply scanning a printed QR Code, you can check whether the paper version is still current, or whether think project! has a newer document ready and waiting.

  • QR codes can be imprinted on all types of PDF documents including plans, calculations and written correspondence.
  • Users scan with a QR Code reader on any smartphone or tablet, and can then navigate the range of status information that appears.
  • Status information that is called up should be freely selectable.

think project! Deep Link Service

Using the Deep Link Service, information from think project! can be linked with information from other systems such as ERP or DMS. These links can be useful in different ways. For example, a link can display static designated information or a specific document, or it can dynamically lead to the most up-to-date version. This allows both systems to be enriched, without the need to duplicate or laboriously research information.

think project! Crystal Reports Service

The think project! Crystal Reports Service makes design options from Crystal Reports available in think project!. Letter templates, forms, reports and diagrams can be individually tailored and adapted to your design specifications. Once formatted, the user doesn’t need any specialised knowledge – as the design created within Crystal Reports will be automatically applied to new documents.
