Keeping all of your teams and Specialty Contractors in sync is critical to keeping projects on time and on budget. But with remote jobsites and designs and requirements always changing, it is extremely difficult to ensure everyone is working from the latest file, leading to rework and lost time. Egnyte allows teams to securely share and sync critical project files to jobsites and remote teams ensuring everyone is working off a single source of truth.

With Egnyte General Contractors can:
  • Collaborate between external partners
  • Access large files via mobile devices
  • Get off-line access to files
  • Protect against ransomware
  • Quickly and easily leverage high powered processing

Once we saw Egnyte and the synchronization tools it provided we were really excited as that’s a huge differentiator.

From 4k drone footage to 360-degree images, engineers are constantly leveraging the latest technologies to collect data from jobsites. But making that data available quickly and securely across the organization continues to be a major challenge, significantly slowing down workflows. Egnyte allows for real-time syncing of large data files moving them to on-premises servers or to the cloud so they can be processed and then made available to those who need it, significantly shortening the time it take to turn data into action.

With Egnyte Engineering firms can:
  • Provide off-line access to files that remain in sync with other locations
  • Access large files via mobile devices
  • Identify, manage, and retain critical content to support end of project compliance
  • Easily receive and organize bids from subcontractors
  • Protect against ransomware

It was an easy decision to work with Egnyte. I had prior experience with the product and was confident with the product’s capabilities.

Your reputation, and therefore your business, depends on how well you deliver on projects. But changing requirements, communication breakdowns, and contractual issues can mean teams aren’t working off the latest documents, derailing projects and significantly impacting the bottom line. Egnyte allows for real-time collaboration between you and the General Contractor providing the ability to access to large files that are always in sync with the latest version so you know you are building to the right plan.

With Egnyte Specialty Contractors can:
  • Collaborate from any device, anywhere
  • Sync and access large drawings, jobsite imagery, 360 photos, and point cloud data from mobile devices
  • Retain and manage critical documents to fulfill contractual obligations
  • Protect against ransomware

It used to be we spin up on-site infrastructure, file servers on site, to give them fast local access. And now with Egnyte, we can spin up projects before the project's fully live, and they can start constructing their data set from the planning stages all the way to when they implement a trailer on site and go live with the actual construction of the project. So, the data flow is much more fluid now than it was before.

Architecture

With the significant expansion of and complexity design applications the challenges of coordination and collaboration across regional offices has become more pronounced. In order to avoid overwriting files others are working on and causing rework, many Architecture firms are forced to serialize their workflows, passing large files back and forth, slowing down projects and increasing unproductive time. Egnyte allows Architecture firms the ability to co-edit files, increasing the ability to collaborate, reducing upload and download times so people spend more time working and less time waiting.

With Egnyte Architects can:
  • Easily co-edit and collaborate across multiple locations
  • Share large files with external partners
  • Automatically cache the most commonly used files for easy off-line access
  • Protect against ransomware

Egnyte makes your life as an IT person better. And it makes the lives of the rest of our employees way better.
