Architects build the latest collaborative platform with the Threads® app

"A godsend to productivity. It will change the way we work."

  • pilot tests available for free to a limited number of practices

  • Webinar this Thursday 20th November

Innovation award winning Threads® software has won interest from architects' practices seeking to speed up file sharing amongst project teams. It allows fast and easy searching across all a project's digital communications such as emails, texts and phone calls.

Threads won a global Innovation award last month, when the Chairman of the judging panel described it as "an intelligent software product that makes sense of the multitude of digital communications. It is a godsend to productivity and will change the way we work.” Architects are being invited to find out more in a webinar this Thursday 20th November, starting at 4pm.

"A project team can generate hundreds, if not thousands of emails both between themselves and with external contractors, consultants, suppliers and other contacts." Explains John Yardley, the managing director of JPY, the developers of Threads. "Attachments maybe copied to all relevant personnel, but it doesn't take long for even the most sophisticated project management system to start to lose track of information as it is so dependent on people remembering to post the right files appropriately."

"Threads does away with the need to cc all the parties you think might be interested. All messages are automatically backed up off site, together with key attachments, so it’s never a problem to find a file or even recover a message that is deleted.” John says.

Quentin Cooper, science journalist, presenter of BBC Radio 4's Material World says "Threads combines, refines and mines all a company's isolated digital data. It weaves all a company's messages together, helping ensure it’s unrivalled, not unravelled."

A webinar this Thursday, 20th November, 3pm-3.30pm GMT, provides a glimpse into its ease of use; contact threads@jpy.com for more information or register here.

 JPY Plc is one of the most established software companies in the UK, starting in 1982.

When it migrated its customer records from steel cabinets to digital disks, staff noticed that the gains made in digitisation were matched by a loss in collaboration. With a filing cabinet, staff had access to a physical, paper customer file - and it was obvious when someone else was working on it. The replacement digital versions mostly ended up hidden in private user emails. Worse, despite the phenomenal searching power of computers, users still had trouble finding documents or messages.

As computer scientists working in the field of high-performance workflow, JPY were ideally placed to find a solution and the result is a software service called Threads®.
