Leading Auto Manufacturer Hyundai Implements Workspot Enterprise Desktop Cloud. Learn More

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

The Problem

Collaboration among people in geographically separated offices or with external project partners is difficult, creating project bottlenecks that inhibit 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, and others. 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


Collaboration across project teams in multiple locations is difficult and can hinder productivity.
With Workspot, power users collaborate in a common data environment and enjoy exceptional performance.

The Solution

The Workspot Enterprise Desktop Cloud™ platform provides a holistic, 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 and Google Cloud global regions to provision highly secure cloud workstations with minimal latency to ensure high performance for all your CAD and office productivity applications.
  • Exceptional User Experience: All data is co-located with compute within the cloud 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: 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 from a common data environment, minimizing 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
