Black & Veatch needed external hosting of Microsoft SharePoint to meet the needs of various project teams, including those located internationally. SharePoint connects people, information, processes and systems both within and beyond Black & Veatch’s firewall. Black & Veatch turned to LoadSpring Solutions, a leading provider of application management and hosting systems for remote connectivity, to host this integrated portfolio of collaboration and communication services that is managed from multiple U.S. and European locations.

Black & Veatch reduced IT infrastructure costs and deployment time, which allowed local and dispersed project teams easy and secure access to SharePoint project data in real-time from any computer system in the world by using LoadSpring for hosting services.

LoadSpring’s extensive experience in remote connectivity and deploying software over
the Internet enable Black & Veatch to:

  • Improve productivity by providing a hosting system that supports real-time collaboration through Microsoft’s SharePoint, both within and beyond the corporate firewall
  • Streamline the management process to focus IT personnel on mission-critical tasks while LoadSpring concentrates on providing secure access to project information and resources
  • Enhance security presence by outsourcing business-critical applications

“LoadSpring’s unique business model fit perfectly into a niche of missing IT needs within our organization. We are able to provide our users a means of sharing SharePoint project data with partners and customers outside our firewall to alleviate the security hassle normally associated with this type of accessibility. ”
