Email Isn’t Going Anywhere. Whether You Like It Or Not. Here’s How You Can Master It

Blog / Best practices

Email. You can’t live with it. You can’t live without it.

But you can bring order to the inbox chaos.

The Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry is constantly evolving but one thing that is not going to change anytime soon is the use of email. If you try to eliminate the use of email, youll only frustrate people and slow down progress. Instead, you can leverage the use of email to maintain productivity and make sure that nothing critical gets missed in the process. 

Why Email Will Continue to be Used in AEC (and other industries – no doubt)

Email has become the natural backbone of the everyday business processes of an AEC firm, especially its project, contractual and operational communications, and it’s simply not realistic to turn your back to it, given its entrenchment in many business and communication workflows.

Disruption and loss of traceability and other benefits of formalized communications might arise if we completely abolish email. 

The Risks of Mismanaged Emails

While email is an indispensable tool, if mismanaged it can create lost information, missed deadlines, even legal liability. People can get buried under a pile of emails, making it difficult to track changes to projects, compliance with standards and deadlines, and perform other contractual obligations.

This is where Newforma Konekt comes in: it changes how AEC firms use email, ensuring that every email is accounted for and accessible.
