Innovative construction IT services:
Bridging technology with infrastructure

Construction companies rely heavily on having readily accessible IT systems for real-time collaboration and overall project management. However, reliable connectivity is often challenging for construction companies running multiple job sites. If your construction site crew cannot access blueprints, email, project plans, or collaborative tools like Teams or Zoom, you run the risk of costly downtime, project delays, and missed deadlines. And without a trusted IT company overseeing your network security, the threat of data loss and cyberattacks increases, leaving your company open to hefty fines, reputational damage, and potential lawsuits. We offer innovative solutions for our construction clients, including data backup, file sharing, private cloud-hosted applications, hosted and remotely accessible phone systems, and mobile device management. Your business goals are our business goals: to overcome the unique challenges and create a more cohesive platform in which your widely dispersed team can collaborate seamlessly for increased productivity.

Construction-specific compliance

img construction compliance
Construction companies have more than enough safety regulations to which they must comply. So, when it comes to technology, you need to be confident your IT professionals have your back and can ensure that you’re not overlooking important standards. For example, contractors and suppliers working with the U.S. Department of Defense will need to ensure they’re adhering to the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification 2.0 (CMMC) standards.

If your business uses Building Information Modeling (BIM) software, adherence to standards like ISO 19650 is crucial for data management and security.

Even if your construction company doesn’t work with the DOD or employ BIM software, there are general business best practices you should follow to ensure network security. A managed services provider that specializes in construction IT services can guide you to ensure your construction company is protecting sensitive data, has proper access controls, policies and procedures, and has a documented incidence response plan. Employee training, regular risk assessments, and third-party assessments will help mitigate the risks associated with non-compliance, enabling you to focus on what you do best.

Construction security

img construction security
Maintaining a secure environment, both physical and digital, is a real challenge for a construction business. A lack of proper physical security measures could give unauthorized personnel access to equipment, machinery, or sensitive documents. With managed services, your construction company’s sensitive and proprietary data is protected at remote job sites and in the office.

Regular updates and patching, proactive network monitoring, penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, mobile device management, data backup and disaster recovery plans, security awareness training for staff, and access controls greatly reduce the risk of cyber threats and data loss and lead to increased productivity. Our team of IT professionals will work with you to map out a solid cybersecurity roadmap so you can focus on business goals.

Construction software applications

img construction software apps
Software applications play a vital role in the construction industry, streamlining processes, enhancing productivity, and improving overall project management. We understand the importance of software applications in the construction industry and have vast experience ensuring all systems play nice with each other.

We’ve helped countless construction companies seamlessly integrate the tools and technologies they use to run a profitable business including Building Information Modeling (BIM) software (BIM 360, Bluebeam, Sketchup), collaboration tools (Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Slack, 3CX), project management and scheduling tools (Procore, Smartsheet), estimating and cost management software (PlanSwift), Enterprise Resource Planning systems (Timberline, QuickBooks, ComputerEase), quality control applications (PlanGrid, Fieldwire), and asset management software (Magicplan). We can help you leverage the tools you use to propel your construction projects to new heights of efficiency and success.

Construction mobile device management

img Construction mobile device management
The use of mobile devices skyrocketed during the pandemic and continues to play a vital role in improving connectivity, collaboration, efficiency, and productivity for construction companies. Mobile device management (MDM) is more important than ever in protecting data such as sensitive project plans, blueprints, email, and financial information stored on laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
Ensuring all data is properly backed up and stored offsite to prevent harmful data loss is crucial. The need for protection is magnified considering a construction site’s rugged, dynamic, and often less secure environment, which can lead to lost, stolen, or damaged devices. MIS Solutions’ MDM solution can remotely wipe mobile devices to prevent sensitive data from falling into the wrong hands. With our robust backup and disaster recovery solutions, your data is properly backed up and stored offsite ensuring that your data can be recovered quickly if needed.

There is always someone available via phone to listen and handle our computer and server issues – never an automated attendant – during regular work hours. When we call MIS Solutions, we are immediately assisted with the issue until it is resolved. I would estimate that 98 percent of our issues are resolved within the same day. In comparison to our prior IT service provider, sometimes we would report a problem, then receive a call back only to be told it might take a day or so to resolve the problem.

It’s their mindset of constant improvement that has helped our network become more stable and reliable. When we do have problems with the Internet or systems, I know that they will respond to our needs.

Being back with MIS just gives me peace of mind knowing that my technology is functioning seamlessly behind the scenes without it interfering with and disrupting our day-to-day operations. It allows us to concentrate and focus our attention on what we’re in business for. We’re not in business to worry about computers, viruses, networks and servers. We’re in business to provide land surveying and engineering consulting and construction layout services – that’s what we’re good at; that’s what we specialize in. And if we’re having to worry about a virus on our computer or where our data is being stored or backed up, we can’t do our job.
