Our Updates Aim To Break Your Reliance on CTRL-F

Coming Soon: Exciting New Features

DADO 2.0

Released April 2021

DADO 2.0 is a major upgrade. To get started, DADO automates your admin effort by organizing and indexing your documents. Then DADO ensures the proper handling of all types of construction documents with (1) Smart Templates, (2) Autopublish, and (3) Custom Document Types. With DADO, administrators can kick their feet up while DADO does the hard work. Smart Templates combined with best-in-class OCR allow administrators to skip the process of manually assigning information to drawings and custom document types! Autopublish allows you eliminate the amount of time newly imported documents are not available for your teammates by removing the need to publish documents. Custom documents makes it so administrators can create custom fields and filters, giving their team members a better search experience.

Procore Sync+

Released February 2021

DADO is your info hub no matter where you store or create your documents. There is no double-duty managing your documents. With Sync+ for Procore, reviewed sheets come into DADO ready to be administered, tagged, and instantly accessible to your field and office teams. It does not matter if you have contract documents in Procore, shop drawings in BIM360 and your Safety Manual in Sharepoint, all of your documents can be found from just one place without the hassle of customizing your business practices or document standards to use DADO. You have no control over the state of the drawings. DADO reviewed dozens of the dirtiest construction documents and refined our algorithm so that even coffee stains, repeated scans, and the most ridiculous fonts won’t stop your teams from finding the information they need.

OCR Algorithm

Released January 2021

You have no control over the state of the drawings. DADO reviewed dozens of the dirtiest construction documents and refined our algorithm so that even coffee stains, repeated scans, and the most ridiculous fonts won’t stop your teams from finding the information they need.

DADO now supports:

  • Poorly scanned copies
  • Multiple text orientations
  • Mix of text images (OCR) and true type font
  • Poor previous OCR
  • Stamped text or handwritten text
  • Historical documents (typewriter)

Sharepoint Documents Now in DADO

Released January 2021

Based on customer requests, DADO added another connector to our list of supported cloud integrations. You can now do a one-time upload or set-up an ongoing sync of your documents in Sharepoint Teams. 

Natural Language Search Update

Released January 2021

After reviewing the most common searches, DADO made a few tweaks to make sure it easier to find documents like plumbing fixture schedule, welding inspection requirements, AHU schedule, and security system notes.  If you haven’t run a voice search in a while, you’ll find the updates will improve your search efforts.
