Egnyte, the leader in cloud content collaboration and governance, today announced the release of Egnyte for Construction and Engineering, a new platform to help construction and engineering (C&E) firms increase project efficiencies while also enabling a variety of cloud-first processes and experiences for clients, partners and employees.
“C&E companies have historically ranked among some of the least digitized businesses, representing a more than $500B opportunity for productivity improvement in the US alone,” said Ronen Vengosh, VP of Construction and Engineering at Egnyte. “However, COVID-19 has unleashed a great acceleration in digital transformation across all sectors, and, with so much to gain and so much at stake, the speed of transformation among C&E firms over the past few months has been nothing short of breathtaking.”
Egnyte for Construction and Engineering enables C&E companies to:
- Minimize costly delays on the jobsite, using file caching to maintain connectivity to critical digital documents even in low (or no) bandwidth environments;
- Provide secure, remote access to large files (e.g., Revit, AutoCAD, VR/AR) for distributed employees, clients, subtrades, and partners;
- Enable a seamless experience on mobile clients (phones and tablets) for easy, front-line access to drawings, punch lists, quality, safety, and other critical documentation;
- Mitigate risk by securing and monitoring valuable and sensitive content in real-time, and ensuring relevant document retention and deletion obligations are met, across projects, regions, and cloud apps.
In addition, Egnyte for Construction and Engineering provides teams with one unified document library across an expansive group of the industry’s leading digital applications, including Procore, Bluebeam, and Smartvid.io, as well as horizontal productivity tools like Microsoft 365, Google Workspace and Slack.
