Balfour Beatty US expands deployment of collaboration tool

23 Jun 17 Balfour Beatty's US business has selected Egnyte Connect as the system to be used for content collaboration across the company.

Egnyte Connect is already being used by 2,500 Balfour Beatty US employees working on ‘vertical’ construction projects and the company plans to deploy the system to its 1,700 infrastructure employees by the year’s end.

The system is designed to provide secure, uninterrupted access to all corporate content and enable seamless collaboration, internally and externally, via any preferred business application on any device.

“The construction industry is highly collaborative and we needed a solution that was easy for our employees to use, but also one that was secure enough to deploy to thousands of employees,” said Thomas Volmer, director of IT at Balfour Beatty US. “Egnyte Connect not only met, but exceeded, all of our requirements and expectations for a company-wide collaboration solution. The added mobility, the ease of use, and the enhanced security features have made Egnyte Connect a vital part of all our employees’ ‘Tech Tool Belt’, which we use every day on every project.”

Rajesh Ram, co-founder and chief customer officer at Egnyte, added: “Balfour Beatty US is a prime example of how effective the Egnyte Connect solution is built to grow with our customers. After working with them on a smaller deployment at the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport project, we were able to listen to their feedback, work with their team, and build features that could meet the needs of their use cases at a larger scale. We look forward to continuing to grow our solution with Balfour Beatty US and other customers like them in the AEC industry.”
