Construction IT Support and IT Service Benefits
We can either augment your internal IT or become your primary IT provider. A major benefit of outsourced IT is that our experts are equipped to ensure that your network and computers remain secure, contain up-to-date software and your business avoids major downtime.
Another benefit seen to construction companies when they outsource their construction IT services is decreased overhead and increased productivity. In the construction industry, outsourced IT has been trusted and relied upon due to its ability to standardize processes, reduce risk to the firm, improve reliability to the required technology and increase employee productivity.
Lastly, professionally managed IT services provide a safety net to construction companies. Construction companies have increasingly become a target for cyber-attacks: over 27% of all companies and 43% of small companies will experience a data breach. Not only is the average global cost of a data breach nearly $4 million, but construction companies have proprietary information that requires protecting, both for the security of the business as well as its employees and clients.
Outsourced IT Services and Support for construction companies is beneficial in many ways. It cuts costs, protects companies from financial harm and loss of goodwill, keeps the firm up-to-date with the latest technology trends and updates, and secures the company’s protected information.
What IT services are best suited for the construction industry?
Comprehensive IT Assessments
We provide a holistic view of your current IT state by certified professional auditors. An assessment will identify potential risks, validate alignment with your business goals and suggest opportunities for improved technical and organizational improvements. We have developed comprehensive IT assessments for architecture, engineering and construction companies across the country. Our comprehensive IT assessments will allow your business to implement more effective IT functions that eliminate unnecessary technology-related costs while enhancing performance.
When most people think of crime in the construction industry, they think of petty theft or vandalism. However, because the workforce is mobile, spread out and has high personnel turnover, the construction industry has become a prime target for cyber criminals. A cybersecurity assessment will help you understand the risks your business faces and how to eliminate them to protect your company, your employees and your clients.
Office 365 Migrations and Licensing
Because of the nature of construction in that it usually consists of temporary sites spread out across various cities, a cloud-based service would be the ideal choice. Cloud backup reduces the risk of cybersecurity threats and costs, while allowing easier access on the go. With The Scarlett Group, migration and licensing are simple and seamless.
RFP and Purchasing Services
The Scarlett Group’s RFP and Purchasing Services consulting group will make it easy for your business to decide which enterprise, financial or additional software is the best fit for your construction company. Our process will choose software that will work now and adapt for the future to provide your business reduced costs and increased flexibility.
Cloud Strategy Consulting and Migration Services
It is important for those in the architecture, engineering and construction service to consult a managed IT company for cloud consulting and migration to ensure the speed and quality of its technology, while protecting its information from cyber-attack. Our company aims to help you select the option that best suits the needs of business; we will handle the migration with no hassle for you.
Secure File Sync and Share Solutions
Enterprise file sync and share (“EFSS”) allows authorized users the ability to securely share and sync files among multiple devices. Because the construction industry usually requires file sharing outside of the company to clients or to professionals in different fields, EFSS is an ideal choice. The Scarlett Group’s IT professionals can help you decide whether Dropbox, OneDrive or another EFSS best suits your business’ needs and goals.
Mobile Device Management (MDM)
To keep up with the hustle and bustle of the construction industry, MDM services from a trusted IT company are crucial. Mobile device management will allow owners, foremen and other construction personnel access to important information on the go, as well as remote management of different devices. We provide complete coverage across all major service providers to accommodate our customers.
