Construction Industry Solutions – The Benefits of Managed IT Services for Construction firms
Technology requirement of construction companies are unique due to the unique aspects of the business – with programs like CAD, construction project planning and procurement of materials that are unique to the industry. The industry needs to be a very collaborative one – even though workflow follows traditional paths such as design, construction, and testing. There is also the need to adhere to industry security and compliance in all aspects of the industry.
Success is dependent on successful collaboration between architects, engineers and foremen and workforce at the on-site level. The technology infrastructure must support this collaboration in real time.
We specialize in the construction industry and provide the following benefits:
- 24/7 access to highly trained and specialized professionals
- Support for technology that run your applications such as estimation, accounting, project management, document and scale management.
- Support for applications such as Sage, JD Edwards, Quickbooks and Autocad Solutions.
- Mobile Device Management (MDM) and remote access solutions that allow your team to have access to everything regardless of time and location.
- Standard Construction IT solutions along with the specialized services.
Additionally, we will perform monthly updates and preventative maintenance, to ensure that your software and hardware runs at peak efficiency and remove the chances of failure.
We make it our business to stay up to date on new cyber threats and hackers so your system is free of these threats and continues to run smoothly. In the event of a failure, our team of experienced and dedicated professionals will be available 24/7 to fix the problem.
We will also routinely run analysis of your IT environment to prevent the need to add equipment and resulting in the need to increase your budget. This analysis will also help us identify any vulnerability in your system or network.
COBAIT’s collaborative platform allows architects and construction engineers to work together in real time on a project. With the ability to translate data from multiple programs such as Excel, ACAD, and Rhino into a single platform, various collaborators could work simultaneously rather than one at a time. All computations are done in the cloud, there is no chance of the system slowing down or freezing.
As technology gets better and new software makes the collaboration process more streamlined and easier to communicate between members of your team, the need for dedicated IT grows even bigger.
Time is money for any business, but that applies particularly to the construction industry. With contracts on the line, construction industry leaders cannot afford to have unreliable network, incompatible software and breakdowns in employee communication. Stakeholders, supervisors, estimators and the sales team need 24×7 access to information tools. It is crucial that CAD, estimation and other applications be properly integrated and that your network is maintaining uptime. Excellent communication and coordination between management and workers is required along with the ability to oversee contractors and order materials. To accomplish that, a top construction planning software and a comprehensive technology strategy is required. That’s where COBAIT has been coming in.
Just as you subcontract out certain parts of your construction projects to increase efficiency, your technology needs will be better served by those who have expertise in delivering at lesser costs and more efficacy.

How an Outsourced IT Firm Saves Money

With in-house IT professionals comes various costs – staff, device, network, software and maintenance. However, by outsourcing your IT department, you can outsource these concerns as well. Additionally, we are always dealing with, and are updated with the latest viruses, malware, cyber threats and other factors that could harm your system. One of our core competencies is staying abreast of the latest threats. If your system compromised in any way, we are available 24/7 – resulting in reduced downtime in the event of a crisis.
Even if you do have an in-house IT tech team, we help free up your employees to focus on your business needs. Our expert IT professionals will deal with troubleshooting, upgrades and implementation of new tech, allowing your IT employees to focus on your construction projects.
