Design Manuals

The solution that streamlines your Design Reports

OmTrak’s Manuals Module eliminates design and project handover delays.

The creation of Design Reports at the initial feasibility or detailed design stage can be highly complex and time-consuming. This process is usually slow, manual and the subsequent report requires the reader to swap between multiple platforms.

Wouldn’t it be nice to let everyone bring their piece to the table? Request a demo today and we will show you how easy it can be.

Using OmTrak, high-quality manuals are ready before they’re needed.

Our unique approach allows Design Manuals to be progressively created and reviewed online at each stage of the design process – from initial feasibility to the final design. It places you in control of the process with up-to-date data available at any time.

With version control, dedicated space for narrative and mobile access to all team members OmTrak allows complete control and a hassle-free completion of the design reports.

Using a pre-structured format, each consultant uploads their content, relevant drawings, documents and photos. The completed Design Manual is a single, easy-to-read PDF file with links to all attached files.

What our clients say

“One of the greatest frustrations in a Design Manager’s role is dragging the design “story” from the heads of the subject matter experts, typically under extreme time pressure to meet submission deadlines. Having access to an easy to manage tool that enables effective collation of design justification and supporting evidence along the way, minimises the time and pain involved in the process and reduces distractions that divert designers away from their core jobs.

Comprehensive and logically structured Design Reports provide the client with real insight into what’s gone into the design, improving confidence in and support for the design solution.”
