tBits CollabWrite assists you in minizing the following risks:
Risk of Claims, Liquidated Damages and Penalties
Most contracts have clauses associated with the Liquidated Damages, Penalties etc for compensating the owner due to deficiencies in work/quality and delays caused by the contractor. Many of the liquidated damages cases also are legally challenged and end up in courts and arbitration panels.
For the fair settlement of any such contentious issue, the records and facts serve the basis. These records - including the dates as mentioned in Letter of transmittals, inspection calls, MDCC certificates etc - assist the parties in objectively determining the sources and place of delays.
