IT Support for Construction Companies
Are you a decision maker in your construction company looking to save time, increase productivity and enhance remote collaboration? The answer to all your IT problems is a construction-focused managed service provider.
When it comes to choosing the right IT support for your construction business, you should know that not all managed service providers (MSP) are created equal. Your industry needs an expert that understands the nature of the construction industry – and a traditional IT services company is unfamiliar with the expectations.
Operating a construction business has a unique set of challenges, such as:
- A transient, large workforce
- Utilising numerous devices
- Working collaboratively from remote locations
- Complicated logistics
- Licence management
- Utilising hi-spec laptops and desktops for complex software such as CAD
- Archiving large volumes of historical data
At MSP Blueshift, our team is experienced in designing, implementing and managing solutions to meet these challenges.
Choosing MSP Blueshift as your IT support company
A construction IT expert knows the ins and outs of the industry and has vast experience in interacting with different decision makers and stakeholders.
When you opt for Managed IT services for construction, you engage in a partnership with a company that can help you achieve your goals
As well as providing all of the day-to-day IT support and preventative maintenance for your entire information and communications (ICT) technology environment, at MSP Blueshift we also have in-depth knowledge of the specialist software and applications that construction teams rely on to ensure operations are running smoothly.
“MSP has been our IT team for over two years and their level of service and support is unfailingly excellent!” – Sharon Rowland, DesignInc. Melbourne
IT support for construction – How we can help the construction industry
1. 24/7/365 construction IT services
Keep your projects on track
The right MSP knows how busy your industry gets. We believe that general IT support should be available 24/7/365, whenever you need it – a full range of IT assistance specialised in construction can keep your projects on schedule. Our Australian-based experts offer clear communication and support project efficiency with dedicated IT Help Desk services and direct technical assistance on site or remotely.
2. Security Monitoring to prevent cyberattacks
Keep your data secure
Cyber attacks are on the rise, and the construction industry is increasingly becoming one of the biggest targets. According to ACSC Annual Cyber Threat Report, there’s been a steady increase in ransomware attacks on construction companies. Our MSP creates strategic IT planning for construction and offers multiple layers of protection against cyber attacks.
3. Backups & data recovery to ensure business continuity
Keep your files safe
The construction industry operates from multiple locations, multiple devices and has large volumes of data. If not archived and backed up properly, data recovery becomes difficult – and very costly for a business. Don’t let backups fall by the wayside. Our MSP company will ensure data security and backup for a swift recovery, with no productivity loss. Plus, we also perform regular maintenance to make sure all your technology is running smoothly at all times.
4. In-depth knowledge of specialist software and hardware
Keep your workforce productive
The construction industry uses hi-spec laptops and desktops that need to be set up and maintained properly. We can maintain the asset registers and create budget forecasts for the lifecycle of hardware and software. Besides, our construction support IT company is highly aware of complex software such as CAD. The world in 3D can still be a challenge to manage for regular MSPs, but not for specialists. Relying on them every day, from different working sites to different locations and devices, we know how to manage and plan for such specialist software.
5. Enable innovation with remote collaboration
Keep your flexible teams connected
The workforce is mobile and collaboration on each project is key. It’s also the nature of the culture in construction companies to have a project-based transient workforce. Our IT support company will allow your company to scale up and down as needed – no matter where you are. We will help with Internet setup, local phone networks and securing company data in devices owned by employees. Plus, for any type of software or application used, allowing remote access alone increases productivity and reduces costs.
