Regional IT Saves the Day for 3D Companies

SYDNEY--()--Regional IT has used Citrix software to solve a huge problem for architecture, engineering and other industries that use 3D modelling. Citrix was so impressed it included the solution in its top five innovations worldwide for 2015.

“We understood their dilemma right from the start”

Massive and unwieldy 3D files make the transmission of project data between teams a difficult process. As a result, architects and engineers often spend hours every day synchronising data to ensure every team in every office has access to the same information.

Much of the work of international architecture firm dwp|suters, for example, involves the collaborative use of 3D modelling software across 15 locations throughout Australia, Asia and the Middle East.

The experts at Regional IT offered dwp|suters a solution using Citrix technology, which can handle the complexity of the 3D imagery. Citrix software also has a unique capability to enable workers to view graphics-intensive files on their virtual desktops in high definition.

The Extreme3D desktop-as-a-service platform includes a combination of Citrix XenApp for on-demand application delivery and Citrix XenServer for easy hypervisor management. dwp|suters architects and interior designers now have on-demand access to files from the cloud, with all data secured and monitored by Regional IT.
“We understood their dilemma right from the start,” said Regional IT director Dan Wright.

“But we knew the Citrix technology well enough to offer it as the perfect solution. At Regional IT we make a point of understanding all the capabilities of the products we sell as well as intuitive ways of using it.”

The solution enables dwp|suters’ employees to collaborate on their projects from any location, on any device, even on their home computers or personal tablets.
“It got to the point where a simple collaboration between teams in Melbourne and Brisbane would be a no-go, all because the data was too difficult to share,” said Kent Chalmers, IT manager at dwp|suters. “To make matters worse, we occasionally lost entire days of work due to synchronisation errors. When you have multiple architects and designers working on a project at hundreds of dollars per hour, that’s a major loss.”

With the Citrix-based solution any architecture or engineering firm need no longer suffer from accidental data loss due to faulty synchronisation.
