How Barnhill Reduces Document Duplication and Miscommunication by Pairing Egnyte and Procore

Tough IT Job #271

Barnhill Contracting Company is spearheading the renovation of the Kinston Regional Airport in Kinston, North Carolina, funded by an impressive $8 million grant. Their site development professionals are undertaking repaving and site renovations to ensure a smooth take-off experience for local travelers. To do that effectively, they turned to Egnyte to ensure that all stakeholders can securely access project documents easily from anywhere, in any tool, and at any time.

The Challenge

Barnhill’s primary challenge was that the majority of their project documents were dispersed between two main systems - Procore and Egnyte.  This created an environment for the potential duplication of documents and laid the groundwork for miscommunication as internal office teams and external project stakeholders often were not always on the same page in terms of field team activities.  In addition, Barnhill relied on a separate tool for punch lists, drawings, and submittals which further complicated matters by introducing an additional document repository with no connectivity between them. 

The Solution

Barnhill turned to Egnyte’s new file sync connector with Procore to solve their problem.  Now, project teams are able to benefit from the convenience of a single source of truth in Egnyte.  By leveraging a standard Egnyte folder structure, team members no longer need to toggle between systems to access the information they need. Field and office teams have effortless access to documents though real-time file synchronization - regardless if located onsite or off.  So whether an executive needs content for review or an onsite manager is collaborating directly within the Procore platform, all users have simple and fast access to what matters most, without missing a beat.

Today, Barnhill Construction trusts the Egnyte and Procore integration to keep their data synced and available for the Kinston Regional Airport Renovation project team. This streamlined process reduces the amount of desktop work required from building division members - all thanks to an intuitive user experience provided by Egnyte. With this solution, the team can access relevant files either through Egnyte or Procore, and get straight back on task with minimal disruption.
