Instrumentation and Valves

As project size increases, document workload increases, and margins drop. Give the clerical work to DocBoss, so you can focus on the things that make a difference.

solution_image_pumps

Pumps & Compressors

Make sure your customers return key documents on time. Give project managers access to the dashboard for snapshots of every project in real time.

Tanks and Vessels

Track the responsible party for each document. Monitor internal turnaround to hit promised due dates. Generate MRB and mud book the day the equipment ships.

We also work with many other suppliers who have tagged equipment.

They see a combination of the issues above – generally depending on whether they have many (smaller) pieces of tagged equipment (actuators, HVAC), or fewer large pieces of equipment (MCC). Here are a few of the equipment lines being supplied by DocBoss customers.

  • Actuators
  • Motor Control Centers
  • Variable Frequency Drives
  • Buildings & Shelters
  • Air Handling Units HVAC
  • Electrical Bulks
  • Analytical equipment.

Check out our recent survey – Why is vendor documentation so painful?

DocBoss asked a bunch of folks (like yourself!) about the problems surrounding vendor documentation. Find out:

Why EPC’s are so rigid in their requirements
Who agrees with documentation holdbacks
How much time does each side invest in document control

No IT support needed. We live in the cloud.

No servers to buy, no software to install. Just point your browser to DocBoss.com and start submitting your vendor documents.
Also – because DocBoss was built for your industry – there is no development to make it work for you. Everything is ready to go.

Why DocBoss (Benefits)

Niche Problem, Niche Solution

DocBoss was built by your industry peers – we know how rigid the rules can be for submitting vendor documentation to engineering companies (and the rejection that comes with it). We guarantee you’ll smile during our demo!

Equipment tags are baked into DocBoss

Every document is linked to one or more pieces of equipment. Providing tag to document information (on cover sheets, indexes or stand alone reports) is part of our core functionality.

DocBoss helps you manage, monitor and control multiple submissions to multiple EPCs from a single point.  Track the progress of all documents in progress, and those that have stalled, and submissions made.

Stop worrying about holdbacks

DocBoss helps you complete projects immediately after shipment. Get your final 10% holdback asap, so it doesn’t disappear.

Be free of spreadsheets

Define, track, and monitor projects in the cloud. Don’t be afraid co-workers will wreck your spreadsheet!

No Upfront Investment

DocBoss is a monthly subscription software as a service (SaaS).  You pay as you go – with no large investment upfront.

What are Vendor Document Requirements?

Purchasers often define the type of documents that vendors must supply as part of the supply contract. The Vendor Document Requirements (or VDR) is the list of those document types. Each line typically includes a document code, description, and delivery timeline (e.g. 10 days after order), The VDR will also identify which codes should appear in document compilations like manufacturing record books, shipping dossiers and the like.

Note that while we use the term Vendor Document Requirements (VDR), this list goes by many names. Supplier Document Requirements (SDR), Seller Data and Drawing Requirements (SDDR), Vendor Data and Document Requirements (VDDR). Supplier Document Requirement List (SDRL), etc…
