Construction Case Study

Recently a client approached LaneSystems to resolve a problem they had with working between the 2 sites. They had currently moved all their services to a cloud based environment which allowed Remote Desktop Connections to a central server within a Data Centre.

The 2 sites have 16 users in total. The industry they are in requires large data files to be accessed and stored centrally to be accessed through different user accounts and software packages.

While the solution they had in place allowed every user to access documents centrally unfortunately all users were having issues accessing the 3D modeling application data files. Running these programs on a Remote Desktop connection allowed very limited speed and functionality, rotational axis and rendering of 3D models proved difficult.

The other issue that they had was inconstant broadband reliability on both sites. LaneSystems provided a solution that was not dependent on the internet reliability, but allowed individual users data files to be accesses centrally but shared locally on each site. This increased the usability of the 3d modeling application yet provided a central data store for all documents. When files were being used, there were locked automatically and synced to both sites.

The solution provided resilience and redundancy with increased productivity on both sites including centrally managed user accounts. The capital outlay for this solution was considerable, but the long term financial advantage was justified within the first 3 months of implementation.
