The Design Review Process is a process whereby certain individuals internal (and some external) to OPP review Architect/Professional/Engineer Design documents/files prior to construction. This Review process was conducted years ago using an application called FoxPro. Because that application became antiquated and cumbersome, routing the documents/files was subsequently done through email. Email did not provide a proper audit trail of who reviewed (made comments on the documents) and those who were simply informed about the documents being circulated, nor did it provide a workflow for this process. The DocFinity application was determined to incorporate the desired capabilities for this review process.
