This customer was created as a merger of two businesses, both using disparate systems and filing procedures. As engineers, they had a requirement to share and sync large data files and they were previously using a consumer-grade product as a workaround.

Multiple versions of large CAD files were being edited and shared by engineers out on site, with limited audit trail and a lack of control over sync/backup times. They needed a secure, robust and reliable business-grade solution. This is where our previous experience in IT Support for Structural Engineering companies could benefit this customer and help them remain productive and utilise new technologies.


We analysed and audited the exiting set up, planned the solution and completed the implementation. This included migration to Microsoft Office 365, installation of VoIP and Integration of File Sharing to streamline processes across the entire organisation. Managed File Sync syncs corporate data to the cloud, allowing access and sharing of files and folders from servers, computers and mobile devices. 

It is quick to deploy, secure and inexpensive to run. Security features enable safe collaboration with others, with user options to control access and set policies. Administrators maintain security, control and data privacy with a multi-tenant dashboard and rich reporting.


Flexible, remote working

Increased productivity

Productivity is increased with real time sync and continuous backups, meaning less necessity to ‘write up’ when back in head office and no data loss

Secure, reliable, safe

Military grade security allows for increased trust and assurance to clients.  Collision support means files are never overwritten
