For data sharing between sites, you can use SmartPlant P&ID Workshare functionality or you can run SmartPlant P&ID in thin client mode using Citrix XenApp.

Using SmartPlant P&ID Workshare

Users on the host and on each satellite work in separate databases.  This means that it is possible to segregate intellectual property between sites by transferring only the data that needs to be shared.  When using Workshare, it is necessary to update reference data at remote locations and to move data between sites.

Using Thin Client Mode

All users share a common database, so that there is no need to update reference data at remote locations or to move data between sites.
