Trapp Technology at World of Concrete
If you’re going to be at the convention, we want to see you! Make sure to find the Trapp Technology guys and say hello. Let us show you how you can work smarter by putting your construction software in the cloud!
Why are construction companies moving to the cloud?
There’s a few main reasons that the construction industry is making the transition to a cloud-based system.
1. Cost efficiency. Pooling configurable computing resources cuts costs. Due to reduced cap-ex investments, getting started in the cloud costs significantly less than building your own in-house server from the ground up. Additionally, there’s no cost for continuous server maintenance and management.
2. Flexibility. With the cloud, you gain the ability to work from any location – construction site, home, office, or during travel. Having your work with you keeps you competitive!
3. Scalability. When you have your own dedicated cloud server that is completely customized and completely scalable, you’re free to really make the cloud your own. You can never outgrow the cloud.
4. Security. You will no longer have to worry about backing up your data. We run backups nightly, in addition to a 7 day rolling back up. What about disaster recovery? Your data is one less thing you have to worry about since all of your files are safely tucked away on the cloud.
Construction companies are increasingly looking to cloud-based solutions so that they can reduce their costs in an incredibly competitive environment. Utilizing the cloud was once a move reserved for big corporations. Now businesses with budgets of all sizes can reap the benefits of putting their software on the cloud.
