Gladinet for Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) Firms

Build faster by optimizing stakeholder collaboration

Keep your files on-premises. Move to the cloud when you’re ready. Or never!

Architectural, engineering, and construction (AEC) firms must manage the pressure to become more digital to improve project management and oversight, provide more timely insights into every stage of the project, eliminate downtime and build faster. But the platforms that offer these benefits require moving AEC data into the cloud, making it difficult to become a digital business overnight.

That’s where Gladinet comes in. With Gladinet, you get all the benefits of cloud collaboration while keeping data on your existing file servers. The Gladinet product presents your file servers as a private cloud for remote users, giving you a single place to collaborate, manage, and secure all of your content and processes. The Gladinet access layer eliminates VPN headaches while making it easier to maintain compliance and protect your network from remote attacks.

Does limited network access impact your job site productivity?

Construction job sites often have trouble with limited access to wifi connections or VPN ports because of the site's physical constraints that can prevent access to critical files.

Eliminate this problem by syncing files to laptops or mobile devices for offline access. Changes to files automatically sync back to your servers or cloud storage when in wifi or cellular range.

Tired of wasting time waiting for files to sync to the cloud?

Slow internet speeds at the job site are often the norm and can lead to lost productivity waiting on data to sync to a cloud-only provider when working with large files onsite.

Gladinet solves this problem by automatically storing cached copies of the files at the job site and syncing only the changed parts of files back to the cloud. This synchronization happens automatically based on the files requested. The result is that the user experience can be even faster than when they’re on the LAN when accessing data from trailers or mobile devices. They’ll consume less bandwidth and spend less time waiting on files to sync, resulting in much higher productivity levels.

Need to control access rights for sensitive data?

Using Email, FTP, and other applications without access controls causes inefficiencies and chaos and can lead to sensitive data falling into the wrong hands.

Gladinet provides centralized access controls and auditing tools to maintain data security, ownership, and data control for internal users and external contractors.
