“On many projects, document control is often an afterthought, which could be detrimental to the successful delivery of a project.  The importance of proper document control procedures and principals on any  project cannot be stressed enough. Inadequate document management can expose a project to unsuccessful claims mitigation. Allscan Trading was originally contracted to review the processes that were in place on the GMEP project and due to their skill and ability to deliver a comprehensive service, it was decided to outsource the document control department to them completely.  Their service to the project has been invaluable and thanks to the processes and procedures that they have put in place, the project is well supported for successful execution.  I have no hesitation to use them again in future on any project.”
