Engineering and Construction
Collaborate on 100% of Your Files With or Without Internet
"Egnyte allows us to reduce the amount of bandwidth used to access the cloud. Instead of everyone going out to the cloud to retrieve drawings, they are simply mapped to Egnyte. This provides quick access to the large drawing sets for our staff. We developed a 'recycle less' mantra and have saved several hundred full-size recycle bin's worth of material by never printing the drawing sets in the first place."
~ Jeff Pistor, Project Manager — Balfour Beatty
Construction companies gain the ultimate competitive advantages with hybrid cloud platform: seamless business continuity and mobile productivity that is not solely dependent on Internet speeds. Increase project efficiency by giving remote workers and contractors secure instant access to large files – even with limited Internet access. Easily set permissions for different types of users to ensure access only to the right files.
Streamline Project Management
Construction businesses improve project workflows and approvals with Egnyte. Project managers ensure that mobile workers, contractors and clients are able to check job statuses and access files on-the-go from any device (iOS, Android). Remote teams collaborate better and managers can easily and securely oversee project bids from their devices using Egnyte with DocuSign®.
Synchronize Information Instantly
Remote construction workers need access to the latest files while offsite. With Egnyte Storage Sync, construction companies deliver the most up-to-date blueprints and other files to all recipients in seconds by syncing files across both the cloud and on-premises storage (e.g., Windows Server, NetApp, EMC, Netgear, Synology, etc.). Egnyte’s real-time sync and version control enable better blueprint management and agile design processes.
Access Large Files Remotely
Boosting mobile productivity for construction companies means allowing remote workers to work on CAD/CAM files, photos, contracts and other large files anytime, on any mobile device. Egnyte integrates out-of-box with AEC focused mobile apps including Bluebeam, PlanGrid®, SmartUse and FotoIn to give project teams fast, easy access to large files and drawing sets—even when bandwidth is limited at remote sites.
Monitor, Control, Audit
Egnyte helps construction companies maximize security and protect files to ensure seamless business continuity. Projects run nonstop with 256-bit AES encryption over SSL. With Egnyte’s SSO (Single Sign-On), Active Directory and group management, IT leaders can easily set up and change permissions. Only hybrid cloud architecture can enforce folder and sub-folder permissions and provide audit reporting across 100% of the files.
Unlike point solutions, Egnyte's flexible deployment models solve enterprise issues of file sensitivity, file size, bandwidth constraints, and multiple types of users - all while leveraging existing infrastructure, folder structures and permissions.
