In the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry, secure BIM collaboration on 3D CAD and BIM models is imperative for accelerating project completion. Workspot solutions are designed specifically to address the AEC industry’s collaboration requirements.

The Problem

Collaboration among employees in geographically separated offices or with external project partners is difficult, which inhibits productivity. AEC IT leaders have attempted to solve this problem by adopting a variety of technologies such as legacy VDI solutions, VPNs for remote work, physical workstations connected over a WAN, etc. These technologies introduce a host of issues that not only negatively affect user productivity but also increase IT cost and complexity:

  • Lack of performance
  • Unreliable user experience
  • IP security concerns
  • Data management problems

The Solution

Workspot offers a holistic yet simple approach for AEC firms that ensures high productivity for power users and low cost and complexity for IT and the business.

  • Blazing Fast Performance: We leverage Microsoft Azure’s global 50+ regions to provision highly secure cloud workstations with minimal latency to ensure high performance for all your CAD and office productivity applications.
  • Great User Experience: All data is co-located with compute within Microsoft Azure to ensure fast file read/write times and fluid 3D CAD and BIM model creation. There is no data corruption or loss, even if your connection to the cloud workstation breaks.
  • Highly Secure: Workspot cloud workstations are not susceptible to theft, loss, malware or user error. There is no data at any edge device or appliance and our highly secure architecture ensures data encryption both in motion and at rest.
  • Ease of Collaboration: Since all data is centrally located, CAD and BIM engineers can collaboratively work off a common data environment and minimize errors and rework.

“Now, engineers can collaborate with colleagues almost anywhere, and we don’t incur the cost to replicate terabytes of data across their locations.”

– Israel Sumano, Senior Director of Infrastructure Services, Southland Industries

“Workspot is the only way to deliver the kind of user experience that keeps our CAD engineers and my IT team happy and productive.”

– Eric Quinn, CTO, C&S Companies

“The ROI makes Workspot a no-brainer.”

– Brian Nordmann, CIO, Dudek
