The Biggest Complaints About IT We Hear Coming from Construction and Engineering Firms Have To Do With Their E-mail and CAD Systems.

1. You Have Constant Problems With CAD Files:  Whether it’s trying to recover a critical project file that was overwritten, accidentally deleted or that has mysteriously become corrupt OR ensuring you don’t lose files altogether, this is a BIG area of concern for our construction and engineering clients.

Most outsourced IT firms will back up your files and drawings, but NOT hourly. So when they finally recover your file, it’s an older version from weeks or days ago, which means you’ve lost countless hours of work, costing you precious man hours and productivity, possibly missing deadlines and frustrating everyone involved. THIS IS COMPLETELY PREVENTABLE AND UNNECESSARY. We have a unique process that allows us to restore files by the HOUR, which means you won’t lose days or weeks of work, saving your THOUSANDS of dollars in rework and missed deadlines.

2. Problem #2: You Cannot Easily Share Or E-mail Large Files: How many times have you tried to e-mail a file only to have your e-mail freeze up, crash and stop working? Or have e-mail stop working altogether because your mailbox is full? Or how often do remote workers find themselves frustrated, unable to access critical drawings and files?

These are all 100% fixable and avoidable, yet most IT firms simply don’t implement solutions that prevent these things from happening.

3. Problem #3: Surprise Bills From Bentley, False License Issues From AutoCAD: If you’re using Bentley Systems, it’s not uncommon to get a surprise bill at the end of the month for unexpected license fees. In AutoCAD it’s those troublesome “Your license is invalid” or “License Manager is not functioning properly” errors.  Regardless, this is just another easily preventable issue. We have a process for both of these systems to completely eliminate both problems.

4. Problem #4: Poor Communication, Terrible Response Times And Horrible Service From Your Outsourced IT Company: When you call their office, you get voice mail. When they finally get around to calling you back, they don’t resolve the problem quickly and then take days or weeks to finally get it fixed. To make matters worse, you have recurring problems that come up again and again.  Meanwhile, your blood pressure is going through the roof because you have hard deadlines that you MUST hit.

Clearly, you shouldn’t have to tolerate this type of poor service. As I stated earlier, our support team is LOCAL. We have a deep bench of 5 consultants and growing, so you don’t have to wait on someone for support as you do with smaller IT firms. We also answer all support calls live and have an average response time of 92 seconds between when you report a problem and when a technician is working to resolve it. We also offer after-hours and weekend support since most business owners work outside the normal “9 to 5” workday.
