File storage and easy access of the massive amounts of data created by architectural firms can make managing technology infrastructure a challenge and can take your team away from working with client projects. Keeping security patches updated on your servers, local drives and software, file storage solutions and ensuring that you’re always sharing information securely are just a few of the ways that Purplo can add value to your architectural firm.
Software Updates and Patches
We have a strong familiarity with some of the key software suites utilized by architects such as Revit, AutoCAD, SketchUp and Photoshop. Adobe specifically pushes updates on a fairly regular basis, and we can work with you to be sure that you’re not unintentionally allowing a vulnerability by skipping an update or a patch. Depending on your managed service level, we can automatically apply patches for you, and proactively let you know when they’re available.
File Storage and Archiving
File organization and storage is a critical business need when you’re dealing with large quantities of highly-detailed files. Missing a single revision could cause significant problems with a project, so our file storage and archival solutions provide you with peace of mind knowing that all of your projects are current, stored safely and backed up with multiple regional redundancies.
Architects have an incredibly fluid flow of business, so sharing data and drawings back and forth with your clients needs to be seamless and painless – and secure. We offer a range of different options including Microsoft Office 365 OneDrive, Google Drive, Dropbox for Business and other secure cloud-based file storage options. Our technology professionals will listen as you describe your flow of business before making a recommendation on a specific technology platform that will meet your needs both now and in the future. Purplo is a Microsoft and Google partner, providing us with solid insight and a broad level of experience working with their respective cloud-based productivity suites.
Business Continuity and Backup Solutions
When you’re working with thousands of details on a large project, the need for both immediate and long-term backups is critical. Losing even a day’s worth of work would be practically impossible to reconstruct accurately, so we work closely with your team to develop a hybrid cloud solution that includes a local backup plus a redundant cloud backup to protect against onsite loss as well.
Securing Your Data
From encrypted email to robust anti-virus software, we have your security needs covered. Working with Purplo means you’re always a phone call away from a technology professional and depending on your level of service – we are actively monitoring your network for signs of an infiltration or malware attack.
