With the ability to easily support large files such as architectural designs, blueprints and manuals, along with secure access and mobile device support, Soonr Workplace gives construction firms the secure file sharing and collaboration flexibility they need to get the job done faster.

Soonr customers in the construction industry include Level 10 Construction, the general contractor for the new Facebook West Campus in Silicon Valley, and Blu Homes, an eco-friendly modern home builder. For these construction firms, the ability to send large files and work off site using mobile devices has been a tremendous productivity improvement. With Soonr Workplace, large files can be automatically saved, sync’d and shared, all with a single click – without risk of data loss, missed deliveries or omitted recipients.

“With Soonr, we are dramatically more productive on the road,” said Danielle Douthett, project executive, Level 10 Construction. “And, when you are always on the road, this is very important. Files are automatically synced and ready for use from anywhere. It’s just what we needed to keep up with our growing business.”

“Beyond secure file sync and share, Soonr enables companies to significantly increase workforce productivity with mobile collaboration and integrated on-device productivity tools,” said Ahmet Tuncay, CEO at Soonr. “The construction business, with its vast array of partners, mobile workforce, and the need to access and share large files, is an ideal industry for the Soonr solution.”

Following are five sure ways that Soonr Workplace enables firms in the construction industry to easily and securely improve workforce productivity.
