Architecture, Engineering & Construction

Your firm is mobile. The workforce needs to get connected. Your engineers would benefit from remote collaboration capabilities. Will they gravitate toward new solutions, or stay in their comfort zone?

Enabling Technologies applies best practices in people, process, and technology to help Architectural, Engineering, & Construction firms gain a competitive advantage of Office 365, Skype for Business and Teams. We help optimize IT budgets by moving commoditized and storage-hungry email and SharePoint to Office 365. We enable anywhere access to work files using OneDrive for Business, and foster communities of interest using Yammer. We help engineers and staff use all of Skype’s capabilities include collaborative screen sharing, voice and video calling, immersive voice/video/web meetings, and dial tone. 

We provide professional services in design, implementation, and managed services. We also assist with internal marketing, training, and organization change management services to make the project a success with end users. We provide integration hardware, headsets, phones, video conferencing systems, contact center software, and cloud licensing for a single point of contact for Microsoft Office 365 and Skype. Finally, we support cloud and on-premises applications and hardware with 24x7 Managed Care packages. 

“By calling and screen sharing at the same time has drastically improved my efficiency to communicate design concepts, drafting redlines, and document concerns.”

AEC Journey

Several satisfied AECs have documented and published their stories here:

We assisted Baltimore’s WBCM improve collaboration, velocity, and cross-selling by replacing two different PBXs with Skype.

Raleigh’s Kimley Horn leveraged Enabling to assist in the rollout Skype voice at 30+ locations.  “Start your deployment with the strongest partner out there – Enabling Technologies. The Enabling Engineers assisted with the complex task to replace 60 PBX’s in my firm."  Mike Gottholm, CISSP, Kimberly Horn, Raleigh 

Skype has paid dividends up and down the line for these AECs:

Enabling was instrumental in making this project a huge success. Bringing the project in on time and under budget. Both objectives were met by weekly (sometimes daily) calls with Enabling to keep track of expenditures.”  Jay Copenhaver, CIO, American Bridge, Pittsburgh

Structural Engineer Kevin Aleksiejczyk from WBCM said, “You can collaborate with someone in another office and each use AutoCAD or Revit to work through an issue just like they were at your desk. You don’t have to take screen shots or print PDFs, sketch on them, email them and then call the person you’re working with. It’s a quick screen share with either IM or a phone call and the problem is sorted through really quick. “
