AEC Cloud Enterprise Hosting? Three Questions Answered

I was up last night thinking about our business and the services it offers. I realized that some of you out there might not fully understand what it is that we do and how we are different for other “Cloud Hosting” companies out there.

In this post, I will answer four basic questions about AEC Cloud that hopefully helps clarify who we are and how we can help your business transition to the next level of IT infrastructure and operations.

As always, we are here to help you and answer any questions you might have.

Who is AEC Cloud?

AEC Cloud is a full service, enterprise, cloud hosting company, focused on servicing the AEC Industry (Architecture, Engineering and Construction). 

Our roots in the business started back in 1999, working in IT on construction projects with Turner Construction. We immediately saw that there was a huge gap between traditional IT, and the IT needs of a construction company and their projects. Everything from the software used, to the approach that construction companies take in assessing projects and understanding billing was different.

From those humble beginnings, AEC Cloud has become the leading enterprise cloud hosting company for the AEC Industry for over 16 years. We have literally seen it all, and leading construction firms leverage our knowledge base to help them make the correct decisions for their upcoming IT needs.

What is AEC Cloud Enterprise Hosting?

AEC Cloud Enterprise Hosting is a business that is focused on the AEC Industry and its specific unique needs. Not every cloud hosting company understands or has ever heard of hosting the software you use everyday in the office and on the job site.

Software such as:

Just to name a few.

And then there is integration of these software suites to leverage the job site data you have into information you can use in real time. Combining information from various software and coming up with new ways to see that data to solve problems and maintain a positive bottom line.

Here at AEC Cloud, we have been working closely with the AEC Industry for over 16 years and know any possible issues, before they become and issue.

Why choose AEC Cloud to participate in your IT requirements?

With over 16 years, solely focused on the AEC Industry’s IT needs, we have a deep knowledge base of how to put together seamless projects. Out customers are happy and understand the value of bringing an expert on-board to help guide them through the murky and confusing waters of cloud hosting and technology.

We are NOT a new start-up, that has no history or experience. 

And then there is the overall cost savings and flexibility that AEC Cloud brings to the table.

The following are the other compelling reasons as to why it makes business sense to move your Enterprise Applications to a cloud hosted environment.

  • Staying focused on your core competency vs. IT headaches.
  • Redirecting capital to core business expenses vs upfront costs.
  • Receiving higher quality at a lower cost.
  • Leveraging knowledge and resources from experienced professionals with over 16 years of experience.
  • Production application hosting for all of your software programs.
  • Disaster recovery sites managed.

Enterprise Cloud Hosting Benefits

Enterprise cloud hosting is the buzz word of the past year. There has been a convergence of technologies that have made the option of hosting desktops, files and applications outside of the office a viable reality. Whether you are looking at private cloud hosting, public cloud hosting or a hybrid situation, the benefits are just to clear to ignore.

The workplace has changed, and we argue for the better. The clearest gain in external cloud hosting is giving your workforce mobility to work whenever and wherever they may be located. The days of the office cubicle are slowly fading and dissolving into a worker that can move outside the walls of the office and still be productive. In fact, more productive than they ever were while chained to a stationary terminal. The workforce is allowed to move which brings opportunities for inspiration they can bring back to the workspace.

Smartphones and tablets, not to mention laptops, have opened the doors to reducing office space requirements. Workers can now work efficiently from home or any other place they may choose to perform their tasks. It’s been said before, a happy worker is a productive worker.

AdobeStock_88855189Mobile workers can now access their personal desktops, files and enterprise applications when the business makes the move to cloud hosting. Plug and play. Always connected to colleagues and the office no matter where they are. A dream for any department manager.

The next biggest factor for consideration is a reduced IT budget. Purchasing and hiring a team to manage updates and troubleshooting are removed from the equation. By spreading the cost of support and infrastructure across multiple clients, the cloud hosted option realizes real time cost savings. No longer is a business required to bear the entire burden of costs associated with purchasing and maintaining an entire IT department. With this old model, the drain on resources and overall budget just don’t make sense anymore.

Flexibility and scalability are other aspects of this cost savings. Are you operating servers and infrastructure that you are only using a part of? What if you need to add an additional ten users overnight? Would your IT department be able to execute that. I’m guessing probably not. With an enterprise cloud hosted model, scalability is built into the system. Scale up or down your user base, in a matter of hours, not weeks.

AdobeStock_34165921At this point, it is worth the time and effort for IT departments to take a hard look at this opportunity, and at a minimum do some cost/productivity comparisons. We are definitely past the days of early adoption, with many larger companies now taking the steps to move in the direction of cloud-based desktops, apps and file storage. Hensel Phelps, Turner Construction are a couple of our client names that come to mind.

The benefits are just too many to ignore.

Real Benefits

  • Cost efficiency
  • Reduction of maintenance requirements
  • Flexibility and scalability of resources
  • On demand user administration
  • 24/7 user support
  • Off-site backup of critical data
  • Regular maintenance and software upgrades
  • Employee mobility anywhere, anytime
  • Freedom to focus on core business

Deep Expertise Matters: AEC Cloud to Resell Viewpoint Construction Software

viewpoint-logoToday I am happy to announce that AEC Cloud has entered into a technology reseller agreement with Viewpoint Construction Software.

The Portland, Ore.-based provider of construction management software should be no stranger to those in the AEC industry.

[contact-form-7 id=”6186″ title=”Inpage Contact Form” html_id=”sidebar_contact”]

In fact, Viewpoint’s fully integrated software is used today by thousands of GCs, specialty contractors, heavy/civil contractors and owner organizations all around the globe. It is a company that has built a strong foundation in this market by developing an integrated set of solutions that fit every need of construction. It’s the type of full-service mentality that comes only by listening closely to the needs of customers.

Logo_AECCloud_Option2_167In all, Viewpoint has embraced an agile mindset when it comes to meeting customer demands. In fact, if there is need that must be fulfilled and Viewpoint cannot fulfill it organically, the company will align with the best partners in the market to deliver for customers.

With that in mind, it makes me very proud to say that we are one such company with which Viewpoint has chosen to align. Part of that comes through our rich history serving the construction space. We like to say that we are “construction first” here at AEC Cloud. In other words, we consider technology to be a critical tool that must be used effectively by construction companies.

For those who might not be aware, our staff has deep expertise in Project Controls, Critical Path Methodology (CPM) and Field Management. And our hosted services originated as a means to help solve the fundamental issue of the distributed, collaborative, migratory workforce that is familiar in construction.

It became pretty evident to us early on (circa the 1990s) that the evolution of HTML would be a game changer for everything—including construction. And so began our long and storied history into hosted services for this space. In fact, our first project was named after a box of cereal—Honeycomb—that sat in the room as we brainstormed the ways in which we could help apply hosted services to solving critical business challenges. From there, it was on to hosting Prolog Manager—at the time a Meridian product (now owned by Trimble). Today, of course, that now includes products hosted by major players across the market.

Now, as a reseller of Viewpoint Construction Software, we are providing access to the broad set of solutions.

  • Vista by Viewpoint— A fully integrated, comprehensive suite of software solutions that helps contractors manage all areas of operations
  • ProContractor by Viewpoint— The industry’s only all-in-one cloud software solution for estimating, project management, and accounting
  • Viewpoint For Projects— A collaborative project management solution for achieving streamlined processes and clear communication
  • Viewpoint For Field View— Improve project controls and information capture for better safety, quality, and defect management
  • Viewpoint For Estimating— Easy to use software to quickly and accurately takeoff, estimate, and bid projects for best profit
  • Viewpoint For Content Management— Drive down costs with efficient workflow, document management, recognition technologies, and storage and archiving
  • Viewpoint For Cloud— Solutions to ensure all your Viewpoint tools are optimized, secure and available

Match that with the broad set of capabilities offered by AEC Cloud, and what you get is a strong product offering anytime, anyplace.
