File Intelligence for the Built Environment

Project Preparation

File Channels allow designers to be easily moved to new projects without moving any files.

Yadle File Channels enable the sharing of collections of files and folders securely to those that need access, both inside and outside your firm.  You can share some files with other team members, other files with vendors, and yet other files with clients.  Each File Channel has access controls that are used to manage access to individuals, groups, and organizations of user.  And since File Channels do not copy or move files, it is easy to create large numbers of File Channels to suite the specific needs of any workflow.

Yadle's File Intelligence automatically attaches tags to your files both on filesystems and in the cloud.  Our AI adds tags to identify the contents of photographs & drawings, and categorizes file types to simplify discover and search.  When combined with tags added by your team members, the result is deep metadata about all of your files to enhance searching for precedence when beginning a project.
