SANTA CLARA, Calif. – February 2, 2016 – Nexsan™ a global leader in secure storage, back up and data management solutions, today announced that DeMeo Construction Inc., a custom residential, light commercial and concrete construction services company serving the Northern California market, has standardized its business operations data on the Nexsan (formerly Connected Data) Transporter, private cloud file sync and share appliances. Having deployed two Transporters, a Transporter 30 in the office and a Transporter 15 in the field, DeMeo Construction is now able to quickly and easily access and share data between cross-functional teams, and consequently has increased project productivity, lowered costs and increased profitability.
Throughout a project, the DeMeo Construction team requires quick access to files, including drawings and design plans, photos, contracts and subcontracts. If the wrong documents are brought into the field or slow access to needed files causes project managers to access older designs, inaccurate instructions can be given to subcontractors, costing both time and money. With storage capacities on the company’s Mac computer systems pushing their limit, owner Mark DeMeo Jr. began to seek a solution that would solve both the storage and file sharing challenges at the same time.
“In our business the time factor is critical,” said DeMeo. “If incorrect information is used during onsite decision making it can be devastating; and waiting in the field for documents to get there can slow down the entire project.”
After evaluating potential new server options, as well as public cloud solutions, DeMeo discovered he could solve both his storage and file sharing challenges with one solution: Nexsan’s Transporter, file sync and share appliance.
“Server options just couldn’t match the flexibility and speed of our Transporters,” said DeMeo. “Likewise, public cloud solutions, like Dropbox, didn’t provide us with the security and peace of mind achieved when you have the equipment right here in your office. I like to see that it’s up and running; and also know that our data is secure because I’m in control.”
“With the Transporters I can organize project files to my specifications, making it easy for the field to get right to the information they need. That means we can get right to work without any delay or risk of error due to a lack of information, or accessing older designs or instructions.”
The productivity boost has been so dramatic for DeMeo Construction that the company has been able to grow its capacity. It can now take on four projects at a time, whereas previously it was three. And more productivity increases are on their way too. Today, in addition to its fleet of Mac computers, DeMeo Construction uses a PC-based system to run its construction project management and billing solution, Prolog. To access its contents easily, DeMeo has to print and scan files from the PC to import them into his Mac. Soon he will be migrating content from his PC system to the Transporters where everything will be easily accessible from anywhere, and on any computer, saving hours every week.
“Not only have the Transporters solved both my storage and file sharing problems in one solution, they have also greatly increased my organization and productivity,” said DeMeo. “They save time and money and make everyone on the team more productive. The more I learn about Transporter, the more efficient I get. It’s become our secret advantage.”
