Catalyst Network Solutions for Engineering Firms
Accelerate time-to-market from design to production
The high-performance computing demands of today’s engineering firms require robust workstations, pay-as-you-go cloud services, massive amounts of storage for huge files containing blueprints, renderings, and project plans, and ultra-fast high-speed connections to reach remote offices and mobile workers. Sluggish computers, outdated CAD software, or slow connections costs time and money, quickly erasing your competitive differentiation.
At the core of your engineering business is IT, and it’s more complex than ever before. Downtime costs money, so you need to ensure that your network and computers are both secure and running at optimum performance—no matter what the situation. Moreover, you need to store, manage, and protect vast volumes of sensitive data with the ability to securely share files between team members across multiple locations. Moreover, with critical files and drawings frequently changing, efficient backup and restore is required to minimize data loss in the event of a disaster.
With the success of your engineering firm defined by the security, availability, and performance of your IT infrastructure, you can no longer rely upon a few in-house, part-time IT guys. Increased competition from across the globe is driving engineering firms to focus on what they do best—engineering—and partnering with the experts to run their IT systems.
That’s where Catalyst Network Solutions can help!
