Our EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) solution puts project stakeholders in control, allowing them to manage revision processes and time-dependent interactions proactively.
With Assai for EPC’s, customers experience the full benefits and best practices of Assai with a shorter implementation time. Built on the best practices of the industry, Assai is the global leader in document control and management solutions, with a proven track record with customers in various sectors.
The express start model will help your team to roll out Assai within a relatively short period of time, whilst offering the same robust and best practised configuration of the standard Assai application.
Assai for EPC’s is also suitable for customers who may want to scale their DMS application in the future, for example, to add modules such as Asset Information Management or the Integrated Project Environment.
Our objective is to train customers in document control best practices through using Assai. By implementing proper document control processes from the start, it will be easier to scale up later on.
To ensure a smooth implementation and aftercare support, we recommend that the customer put in place a
dedicated team. The primary responsibility of this team will be to coordinate the implementation with the Assai project team. In line with best practices, Assai recommends the following team structure:
It is the customer’s responsibility, based on organization structure, to finalize the project team.

We primarily moved the Document Control work outside of our perimeter. Reduced our manpower by 80% and doubled throughput in terms of deliverables. Assai gave us the opportunity to unify our systems through their connecter, saving time maintaining two systems and removing the inherent risk of data mismatches. We moved from a manual distribution of deliverables for comment to semi-automated and finally onto automated, this was all enabled and managed by the Assai product enabling a step change in the way we handle documentation pertaining to our Assets.
From my perspective, Assai has been deployed in both Upstream and Downstream capital project areas and on projects ranging in size from small 60 million USD projects to very large projects up in the tens of billions USD range. Assai was and continues to be an integral part of capital project information delivery.
Assai provided Atkins with a web-based document control tool that enabled the tracking of all deliverables on a major infrastructure project. This significantly reduced the risk of deliverables being issued incorrectly and provided thorough reporting to the management team on the progress of our work.
Having already been a user of Assai document control software for eight years when I joined Thames Water’s London Tideway Tunnels project in 2008, Assai was my product of choice for delivering fully user-configurable and comprehensive document control services.
Assai will be a positive step change improvement in how EnQuest Malaysia’s Technical Documentation is managed. Management of our technical records is crucial to safe operations, and we are looking forward to seeing it expand into the other areas of EnQuest’s business.

Our projects are very long in duration, 5+ years easily, and we’ve been using Assai since 2012. The product’s user interface has come along way from when it was first installed, but the data, and it’s management have been rock solid through every upgrade. Our business relationship has been good, and Assai is customer focused.
I have succesfully deployed Assai on multi-billion£ programmes such as Highspeed 1 (CTRL), Dublin Airport Expansion and the London 2012 Olympic Park construction. Assai is unique because it was designed from the inside out around proven best practice business processes. It is highly user configurable. The reporting suite is comprehensive and powerful. Assai can interface with Primavera P6 to roll up accurate progress to the plan. Assai is better equipped for BIM than any of the many pretenders on the market; the Asset and Data Management suite is second to none.
