Over the past decade, we’ve evolved from simple file storage to a more unified home for work. Throughout our evolution, we’ve seen more and more construction companies rely on Dropbox Business to support end-to-end collaboration with architecture and engineering companies. Let’s look at recent data and insights to put this momentum in context.
The arrival of cloud-based collaborative platforms reinvented company operations. Sharing files became easier than ever, drastically reducing limitations on hard drive storage. Since then, these platforms have evolved. Today, solutions are more robust in their reach. They’re designed to keep up with new devices on the market and serve an increasingly mobile workforce.
A secure collaborative platform can help your IT team alleviate common pain points by being easy to deploy and effortless to scale, all while working everywhere for everyone. This allows your IT team to spend its time focused on tasks that matter—like researching new tech and updated regulations—rather than troubleshooting and the like.
With the cost of materials rising to their highest price in more than 5 years, and 70% of construction firms struggling to find qualified workers, construction companies are looking for news ways to adapt to changing times. As we move into 2018, technology is poised to become more and more integral to the industry as it offers new tools for running an efficient team.
Tech is the backbone of your business. As time goes by, your legacy tech can become more and more problematic. So why have legacy servers and programs become such a problem for small- and medium-sized businesses(SMBs) across the board?
From kickoff to wrap-up of a construction project, you have a lot of moving parts to coordinate. The back and forth of handling bids and blueprints and managing documents between teams can lead to confusion and mixups. But technology like Dropbox and Fieldwire can help cut through logistical downtime to let your team focus on what they do best.
