Gateway has developed a user-friendly, SharePoint solution for Drafting Requests that’s capable of creating, scoping, and managing the entire process. It can be rapidly configured to follow an existing procedure and leverage SharePoint’s document management capabilities to deliver secure, enterprise-wide access to all the associated analytical data, drawings, documents and forms.
