Is Your Architecture Firm Looking for a Winning Cloud Solutions Provider in Vancouver?


Architects need innovative cloud solutions just as much as any professional services firms do. And, you’re in luck if you need someone to provide cloud solutions in Vancouver BC. Compunet has all you’ll need, and we have an outstanding case study that backs-up that statement, shared below.

Burnaby BC Architects Utilize Compunet Cloud Solutions

After sharing a professional relationship since the early nineties, Compunet has helped foster a virtual computing environment for John Clark Architects Inc. of Burnaby BC that saves them significant time and money.

John Clark Architects are a high-tech architectural firm, whose web-based office concept is exclusive and continues to evolve. “I’ve always believed that as technology grows, you have to grow with it,” John Clark says. “Compunet has been effective in adapting their service offerings to be consistent with industry trends and evolving technology. That’s why I’ve used them so long,” Clark explains. “They’re really good at recommending and providing the cutting-edge technology. Compunet has an ability to be forward thinking. They started servicing us at an[other] architecture firm a ways back but every time I’ve moved, I’ve brought them with me.”

The latest technological innovation that Compunet has facilitated for John Clark is the implementation of a virtual computing environment using an “architect in a box” methodology. Compunet was asked to create the virtual environment for the purpose of reducing traditional office related overhead costs. This would also allow Clark’s business to work, seamlessly, with geographically dispersed colleagues on a day to day or project to project basis.

Because You Need a Virtual Environment to Reduce Conventional Office Expenditures

By centralizing all architectural design and business communication resources in one virtual location, the capacity for collaboration and efficiency was optimized. Clark coins the digital environment a “Virtual Architect” office and claims it has been integral to their professional growth.

Cloud Solutions For Vancouver Architects

Compunet utilized Virtualization, VoIP, SaaS, IaaS, and Compunet Cloudsync technologies to create the Virtual Architect. A dedicated web-based infrastructure, it is available for any given project, resides on a private cloud server and has since had proven success in completing virtually designed projects. Experienced remote team members are available on an as-needed basis from around the globe.

John Clark Architects are now able to bring in outside consultants from a variety of different places without huge overhead costs. Compunet uses a pre-arranged template to set up workstations for new consultants and contributors, who only get access to what they need to. According to Clark “Compunet handles it promptly and everything works effectively, often within a half hour.”

Trust Compunet to Create You Innovative Cloud Solutions for Business Efficiency and Growth

The advantages of working with Compunet are numerous. John Clark Architects find there is no greater opportunity for expansion to other geographic locations because their capabilities are no longer regionally focused. They are able to integrate more efficiently with clients and consultants with the systems Compunet has provided. According to Clark, “We get great feedback from high-profile, large-scale clients.” John Clark Architects continue to be reliant on Compunet’s cutting edge technology and services, such as:

  • Outstanding managed services and computer support – Compunet install and support the technologies and computer systems that help businesses run efficiently and successfully.
  • Wide-ranging IT solutions – Compunet enables the client to maximize their technology to get the most out of their IT investment, gain competitive advantages and increase production.
  • Reliable cloud strategy – Compunet ensures the protection of data and the availability of IT systems for productivity and efficiency around-the-clock.

John Clark Architects recommends Compunet to other architectural companies. Clark says that Compunet are “good at researching what technology and products are the best fit for us.” Since using Compunet, Clark’s business efficiency has increased tremendously. “We couldn’t coordinate this much without Compunet solutions – it just wouldn’t be possible.”

For a more advantageous way to streamline your workflow both remotely and on-site, Compunet can enhance your Architectural firm’s mobility, convenience, and productivity with the ultimate Virtual Desktop Solution.

Modern architectural software, while undoubtedly providing numerous benefits to the architects of today, still presents a few challenges for the modern firm to overcome. Revit BIM software and other technologies deal with massive, inconvenient file types and sizes, which makes it difficult to share, store and collaborate with those you need to.

Unfortunately, mobility is often a necessity for you and project managers in order to access, view and share new work with clients when you visit them at their offices and on-site (no worries – we’ll protect you with advanced mobility solutions).
