Team work, work colleagues, working togetherby Annie Spratt
The collaboration between SETEC Bâtiment and Outmind had a clear objective: to help an engineering company with almost 250 employees to deliver projects more effectively, both in terms of deadlines and quality, by drastically facilitating access to useful information.

Faced with a substantial mass of documentation linked to the management of large-scale projects, most companies in the sector are experiencing a significant impact on their productivity. In this context, Outmind simplifies access to knowledge, enabling employees to concentrate on their areas of expertise.

SETEC Bâtiment's challenges

SETEC Bâtiment is a specialized entity within the SETEC Group. It employs around 250 people in France, specializing in engineering consulting (mainly engineers, project managers and project directors).

Before Outmind, SETEC faced a number of problems:
  • There was little or no capitalization on projects & calls for tender.
  • The loss of evidence and traces of exchanges with the customer led to delicate situations: delays, 6-figure penalties...
  • Files stored on the server could not be found without knowing their precise location.
  • When employees couldn't find their information, they could use partial information (with a high risk of error), over-solicit their colleagues, or even the customer, or unnecessarily recreate existing documents.
