Now counts two of the top three ENR 400 and the top architectural firm as customers

CAMPBELL, CA. – September 11, 2014 — / — Panzura, the pioneer of next generation enterprise storage infrastructure for the cloud era, today announced 20 more Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) wins and is on a path to increasing AEC revenue by 1200 percent year over year. As the only proven global file locking solution that solves cross-site collaboration issues of applications like Revit, AutoCAD, Civil3D, and Bentley MicroStation, Panzura now counts two of the top three of the ENR 400 as customers along with the top architectural firm.

Adding to the current extensive AEC portfolio of Panzura customers, the company added new customers including Perkins-Eastman, Hatch, Mott, MacDonald, Fuss & O’Neill, Allies & Morrison, FLEIS & VANDENBRINK and WSP/Genivar, among others. Additionally, Panzura won a large deployment of a top five Global Automation company.

“Our proven and patented global file locking technology enables globally distributed users at multiple locations to collaborate on AEC applications as if they’re sitting next to each other,” said Randy Chou, co-founder and CEO of Panzura. “Panzura’s dramatic AEC industry growth every quarter, in terms of both the number of AEC customers and the size of these customers, is a testament to our technology and focus on the market. We’ve been able to scale with our customers and handle multiple users and many different sites.”

In addition to its significant customer wins, Panzura has made substantial upgrades to its technological capabilities for AEC users, such as increased usage of simultaneous file access from multiple sites and reduced the time to “sync with central” by 50 percent. Panzura also now supports “Revit Worksharing Monitor,” where users from distributed sites can view other team members working on projects even if they are not in the same office, providing distributed users with the feel of working in one central location.

Panzura’s patented global file locking technology is the only solution that solves cross-site BIM collaboration issues and has become crucial for internal and external collaboration needs with AEC applications. This unique file locking capability, deduplication and compression systems reduces application sync time of users in distributed sites from 20 minutes to 10 seconds, truly enabling all users to work as if they were in the same room.

“Panzura’s technology has launched our business into the future; working together across numerous sites on multiple projects with these massive apps wasn’t possible before due to latency and conflicting issues,” said Bob Stidham, IT Manager at Hanson Professional Services Inc. “With a centralized file structure, our whole team is able to work collaboratively, and we can quickly access files wherever, whenever.”
