The Scarlett Group is the leading IT Consulting and IT Service provider for the Architecture, Engineering and Construction Industries.
At Scarlett Group, we see ourselves as an extension of your company; we were founded by a licensed building contractor and understand the technology needs of the industry.
Why Do Architecture, Engineering and Construction Companies Need Expert IT Services?
Professional managed IT allows your construction company to focus on its core business without pulling resources for technology-related concerns or adding workload to an already busy staff. IT professionals can prevent harmful data breaches and manage computers, email and other technology needs. A major benefit of outsourced IT is that experts are equipped to ensure that your network and computers remain secure, contain up-to-date software and your business avoids major downtime.
Another benefit seen to construction companies when they outsource IT is decreased overhead and increased productivity. In the construction industry, outsourced IT has been trusted and relied upon due to its ability to standardize processes, reduce risk to the firm, improve reliability to the required technology and increase employee productivity.
Lastly, professional managed IT services provide a safety net to construction companies. Construction companies have increasingly become a target for cyber-attacks: over 27% of all companies and 43% of small companies will experience a data breach. Not only is the average global cost of a data breach nearly $4 million, but construction companies have proprietary information that requires protecting for security of the business, as well as its employees and clients.
In sum, outsourced IT for construction companies is beneficial in many ways. It cuts costs, protects companies from financial harm and loss of goodwill, keeps the firm up-to-date with the latest technology trends and updates, and secures the company’s protected information.
What IT Services are Best Suited for the Construction Industry?
Comprehensive IT Assessments
Scarlett Group is the reliable source for well-developed and comprehensive IT systems that help your business run efficiently. We have developed comprehensive IT assessments for architecture, engineering and construction companies across the country. Our comprehensive IT assessments will allow your business to implement more effective IT functions that eliminate unnecessary technology-related costs, while enhancing performance.
When most people think of crime in the construction industry, they think of petty theft or vandalism. However, because the workforce is mobile, spread out and has high personnel turnover, construction has become a threat for cybercrime. A cyber security assessment will help you understand the risks your business faces and how to eliminate them to protect your company, your employees and your clients.
Office 365 Migrations and Licensing
Because of the nature of construction in that it usually consists of temporary sites spread out across various cities, a cloud-based service would be the ideal choice. Cloud backup reduces the risk of cybersecurity threats and costs, while allowing easier access on the go. With Scarlett Group, the migration and licensing is simple and seamless.
RFP and Purchasing Services
Scarlett Group’s RFP and purchasing services consulting group will make it easy for your business to decide which enterprise, financial or additional software is the best fit for your construction company. Our process will choose software that will work now and adapt for the future to provide your business reduced costs and increased flexibility.
Cloud Strategy Consulting and Migration Services
It is important for those in the architecture, engineering and construction service to consult a managed IT company for cloud consulting and migration to ensure the speed and quality of its technology, while protecting its information from cyber-attack. Our company aims to help you select the option that best suits the needs of business; we will handle the migration with no hassle for you.
Secure File Sync and Share Solutions
Enterprise file sync and share (“EFSS”) allows authorized users the ability to securely share and sync files among multiple devices. Because the construction industry usually requires file sharing outside of the company to professionals in different fields or to clients, EFSS is an ideal choice. Scarlett Group’s IT professionals can help you decide whether Dropbox, OneDrive or another EFSS best suits your business’ needs and goals.
Mobile Device Management (MDM)
To keep up with the hustle and bustle of the construction industry, MDM services from a trusted IT company are crucial. Mobile device management will allow owners, foremen and other construction personnel access to important information on the go, as well as remote management of different devices. We provide complete coverage across all major service providers to accommodate our customers.
Help Desk Support
Scarlett Group’s 24/7 IT help desk is available every day of the year to answer technology-related questions, remedy technology issues and prevent cyber-attacks. We provide IT help that allows your business to continue to run smoothly without suffering from significant downtime.
A reliable, adaptive and safe cyber security plan is imperative to the success of a construction business. Cyber-attacks can cripple a business in many facets: in the eyes of the public, financially and legally. Scarlett Group provides comprehensive managed cyber security services to ensure that threats are prevented and detected before they strike.
