U.S. CAD and Panzura Partner to Deliver Cloud-Based Collaboration and Data Management Solutions
Top BIM solutions consultant now offers Panzura to empower AEC clients with centralized data storage and streamlined cross-site project collaboration
Newport Beach, California, February 2, 2016 – U.S. CAD, a Building Information Modeling (BIM) solutions consultant and Autodesk Platinum Partner, announces today that it has partnered with Panzura, a leading provider of cloud-based global file systems, to solve cross-site CAD and BIM collaboration challenges in the AECO industry.
Panzura accelerates collaboration by up to 98 percent for architects, engineers and designers who need to work across distributed sites. It dramatically improves performance for applications like Autodesk Revit and Civil 3D, and solves the “file open” problem – the long delay that users experience trying to open or retrieve files across the network – while eliminating the versioning problem that so many AEC firms have struggled with. Customers are also able to consolidate IT server, storage and networking infrastructure across sites and reduce storage requirements by as much as 90 percent.
Through this partnership, U.S. CAD and Panzura will address the growing needs of global AEC organizations, including the greater demand for seamless cross-site collaboration with a simple-to-use architecture that scales across locations, capacity, and users. Panzura’s technology enables teams to collaborate and feel as though they are working the same room no matter where offices are located.
“U.S. CAD is dedicated to helping our clients achieve more by providing best-in-class services and solutions. Our partnership with Panzura will give our clients access to a sophisticated, cloud-based data management solution that will help manage latency and address networking, security, automation, and file system challenges,” states Jeff Rachel, Vice President of U.S. CAD. “Additionally, we were delighted to have Panzura as one of the sponsors of the 2015 Anaheim BIM Workshop, and their successful sponsorship demonstrates the value and demand, among our clients, for cross-site collaboration solutions.”
“AEC firms now work on national or global projects, and often have multiple offices, but it’s challenging to collaborate across sites. Their IT departments want to take advantage of the economics of cloud storage and cloud compute, but need a secure solution that also makes users in different offices feel like they’re next to each other,” said Flavio Santoni, Chief Revenue Officer of Panzura. “Our unique technology and offerings enable customers to truly take advantage of the benefits and scale of the cloud, without IT having to manage a separate infrastructure.”
U.S. CAD will host a special webinar on February 25th, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific Time to discuss the benefits of cross-site collaboration. Register now.
