AUXITEC Ingénierie, a French leader in proximity engineering, provides project leadership and global project management services. Founded in 1964, the company provides high-level expertise in construction, civil engineering, industrial engineering and information systems and prides itself on providing solutions that meet clients’ technical, budgetary, safety and environmental requirements. Its 900 employees operate in 22 countries.
With project management at the core of AUXITEC’s business, being able to effectively—and securely—communicate with clients and partners is a must. The company needed a way that employees could easily send large, complex, and sensitive documents without involving IT.
“We didn’t want employees to take matters into their own hands and turn to consumer-driven solutions, such as Dropbox,” said Iljo Bundevski, IT Manager with AUXITEC. “Our documents contain proprietary information, such as financial budgets and engineering specifications. Therefore, finding a secure collaboration solution was paramount.”
The IT staff reached out to former colleagues to find out how other companies collaborated on large, sensitive documents with external audiences. kiteworks was recommended as a proven and trusted solution by other firms in the engineering and construction industries.
AUXITEC was impressed with kiteworks’ enterprise-grade security, as well as with its ease of use, as it was important for employees to be able to send documents at any time without IT support. Lastly, AUXITEC wanted a cloud-based solution and kiteworks’ deployment flexibility (100% on-premise, hosted private cloud, or hybrid cloud) was another major differentiator.
Once deployed, the kiteworks was quickly adopted by employees across the organization.
“kiteworks is at the core of our customer communications,” said Bundevski. “We’ve benefited from end-to-end security and also huge time savings, as employees can send files as needed with confidence.”
