Are you transferring data across multiple offices?

Architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) businesses, big and small, are facing record demands to mobilise specialist skills and key talent beyond their local office.

Resulting in expensive fly-in fly-outs and relocations to collaborate. For most budgets this isn’t an option. Forcing businesses to hire upon geographical convenience, rather than expertise, dulling their competitive edge.

And with more people working flexible hours, working from home and more jobs being offshored there’s very real pressure to collaborate regionally and globally.

The solution is worksharing, enabling agile digital collaboration between offices, remote staff and contractors irrespective of location.

The problem with worksharing

Collaboration through worksharing demands frequent data transfers between offices and remote staff, and it’s no secret that geospatial data is now massive: 350MB DWGs, 5GB 12d Model projects, 10GB LiDARs and 1TB mobile Laser scans.

To manage this, many businesses have adopted Windows Explorer network drives, VPNs, generic document management systems and consumer-grade cloud sharing solutions.

But these simply can’t handle large geospatial datasets. All data integrity is lost, the result being:

  • Nosediving productivity and time wasted waiting on file transfers, searching endlessly for files and deciphering duplicate versions
  • Collaboration hits roadblocks as project information is inaccessible, siloed across mailboxes, and portable, local and network drives
  • Increased network traffic suffocates your office’s network, crippling everyone’s download and upload speeds
  • Work-life balance suffers, morale plummets and top talent quits as relentless travel finally breaks your team (and your budget)

But there’s a smarter way to manage your data.

Streamline your worksharing and collaboration in and out of the office with a single source of truth for all emails, documents and geospatial data.

“Prior to 12d Synergy, it would take between 30 – 40 minutes to transfer a project between the Sydney and Brisbane offices. With 12d Synergy’s local caching technology, similar projects now open in 1 – 2 minutes. I can work from any office in the country or from home and I know my data will load quickly. Enabling me to make edits without any delays. 12d Synergy saves me a lot of time every day”
