LoadSpring Drives Innovation in the AEC Sector
LoadSpring provides cloud services that enable all our customers to focus on their core business rather than on struggling with IT issues. That’s it in a nutshell. Over the past 20 years, we’ve learned from what our customers need based on the challenges we help them overcome. Everything we learn from those challenges enables us to serve our customers better, moving forward. One of the key industry sectors that have turned to LoadSpring again and again for cloud support is the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) sector.
Big-project AEC companies are jumping on board the LoadSpring bandwagon by taking advantage of our cloud services, including cloud-hosted project controls software, project data integration, and more.
We offer concrete examples of how we bring value to our clients that will give you relatable use cases of how we can help you, too. If you’re already familiar with LoadSpring and cloud services, or if you’re becoming cloud-aware, these cases might give you some new ideas to move your company’s cloud maturity forward.
Application Performance Increases Enterprise Efficiency
We don’t need statistics to tell us you want high performance. We can back it up anyway; 71% of enterprises desire speed improvements in their software. No one can afford sluggish software performance. Significant lag in software leads to loss of time, loss of money, and a feeling of frustration from end-users. High-end project management and portfolio software often have high-end hardware requirements. Oracle’s Primavera P6 (P6) is a go-to application for big-project companies, and it has heavy-duty hardware requirements.
Atos and Siemens Use Case
Enter LoadSpring customers Atos and Siemens. Atos provides IT support to Siemens; Siemens is a multinational conglomerate with a wide range of divisions, including energy, healthcare, infrastructure, and manufacturing. At Siemens Gas and Power, project managers experienced sluggish performance from their locally hosted P6 and wanted to know what they could do about it. Atos brought in LoadSpring to test their P6 cloud-hosting.
Based on a series of commonly performed tasks, LoadSpring hosted P6 ran an astounding 10x faster than the locally hosted version. This increase in performance saved an hour per user per week; the time savings from performance increases paid for moving to the cloud. The increases in project efficiencies and user frustration reduction are invaluable (and even more valuable to the organization).
It doesn’t end there; LoadSpring’s 24/7/365 customer support and careful maintenance of P6 in the background provide continual value to Atos and Siemens.
Test Driving Software Creates Time to Value
Imagine switching your entire team to a new estimating software package seamlessly. Your team has the time to test a half dozen different packages and arrives at a consensus on what they need. When the new package rolls out, it is ready immediately, and there is zero downtime. Training is available through the advanced cloud platform hosting your new software.
It sounds like a dream come true, right? LoadSpring customer, world-renowned design and engineering firm Atkins, a member of the SNC Lavalin Group, live that dream, enabled by LoadSpring.
Atkins’ robust growth meant additional licensing requirements for their cost estimating software. They wanted to explore scaling options that best suited their needs. What’s better than a test drive? LoadSpring deployed five test cost estimating software packages in Atkins’ via LoadSpring Cloud Platform environment. Atkins quickly tried out the software and explored the comparable features based on their current requirements. The custom test drive provided Atkins a solution specific to their needs, with minimum disruption.
LoadSpring migrated Atkins to their choice in cost estimating software, iTWO costX®, with zero downtime. All data from the previous application integrated seamlessly and was immediately available to users.
With operations in North America, the UK, and the Middle East, Atkins also took advantage of LoadSpring’s globe-spanning data centers, which provide them with optimized regional performance and unified data sets that enable global reporting.
