Enabling access to information and extending that access to mobile solutions in the field is very compelling and key to our strategy of enhancing the employee experience - Mark Bryant, chief information officer, PCL Construction
Mountain View, CA. & San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) March 09, 2016
Egnyte, the market leader in Adaptive Enterprise File Services, today announced PCL Construction, one of the largest construction companies in North America, has selected Egnyte as the document management platform to power access, storage and sharing of all content. The announcement was made at the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) annual conference in San Antonio, Texas.
With revenues of $8.5 billion, PCL Construction is a group of independent construction companies with operations spanning the United States, Canada, Australia and the Caribbean. Their diverse operations in the civil infrastructure, heavy industrial, and buildings markets are supported by a strategic presence in 31 major centers.
“What ultimately won us over was the ability to enhance employee productivity, and efficiency,” said Mark Bryant, chief information officer at PCL Construction. “Enabling access to information and extending that access to mobile solutions in the field is very compelling and key to our strategy of enhancing the employee experience. What we wanted to do is create a secure, seamless user experience across the board for our offices and job sites. In our search, Egnyte was the only company that offered a true hybrid model with the performance we were looking for.”
PCL Construction selected Egnyte in order to help the organization:
Synchronize files – As large files move from head office to the field, PCL Construction engaged Egnyte in order to help its users securely and seamlessly access and update files, regardless of device. The simplified movement of files helps PCL Construction ensure accurate, timely, and profitable completion of projects.
Enable a mobile workforce – PCL Construction uses the power of Egnyte to extend file access outside of the physical office and job-site trailer to individual users with mobile tablets and smartphones in order to enable information access any time, anywhere.
Save money and boost productivity – Construction companies are under pressure to deliver projects on time and on budget. Egnyte will help PCL Construction dramatically reduce the time it takes to access files at the job site by reducing or eliminating delays due to uploading and synchronization, leading to savings on people hours and technology infrastructure. In addition, PCL Construction expects to save several millions of dollars in backup and storage costs.
Build For The Future – With Egnyte, PCL Construction now has a platform that will deliver a seamless user experience. In addition, it includes integration with partners such as Salesforce and Microsoft Office and works with existing homegrown applications.
“Egnyte has a proven track record with some of the largest names in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC). We have been able to deliver solutions that enable these firms to share information seamlessly, wherever an employee is located,” said Rajesh Ram, co-founder and chief customer officer at Egnyte. “PCL Construction is an example of an industry leader that has chosen Egnyte not only to address the needs of the present – true hybrid cloud, security and collaboration, but also as a platform to build on for the future. We are excited to partner with PCL Construction to act as not simply a technology provide but as an innovation partner.”
