From architectural designs and blueprints to CAD files, photos, project files and more, firms in the construction industry have volumes of large files to share. And they need to share them not only when they are in the office, but while they are on the go or at the work site.
Soonr has been helping a growing number of construction firms achieve the secure file sharing and collaboration flexibility they need so that they can get the job done faster and easier. Soonr users such as Level 10 Construction, the general contractor for the new Facebook West Campus in Silicon Valley, continue to see tremendous productivity gains while using Soonr Workplace.
“With Soonr, we are dramatically more productive on the road,” said Danielle Douthett, Project Executive, Level 10 Construction. “And, when you are always on the road, this is very important. Files are automatically synced and ready for use from anywhere. It’s just what we needed to keep up with our growing business.”
Soonr Workplace is perfectly suited for construction firms such as Level 10 Construction, with their vast array of partners, mobile workforce and need to access and share large files. It allows them to automatically save, sync and share even the largest of files with a single click, all without risk of data loss, missed deliveries or omitted recipients.
With Soonr Workplace, firms in the construction industry can better manage Projects with their subcontractors, share large files and stay in constant touch with Team Members, all while working on the go from their mobile phones and tablets. Soonr Workplace also gives construction teams the ability to easily conduct site surveys, with Scan to PDF and on-device annotation features that easily support site surveys using photo capture and document markups.

As the need for secure file sharing expands around the world, we continue to see dramatic results in each of our international regions. In fact, we have recently achieved 120% year-over-year growth internationally and continue to expand our partner ecosystem in North America, EMEA and Asia Pacific.
Among the most notable reasons for these record results is the expansion of Soonr’s dedicated, geo-redundant data centers, which includes operations in the U.S., Canada, Denmark and Australia. This delivers the exceptional value regional partners in over 130 countries need to offer the best file sharing and collaboration service to their customers.
The value of this progression has recently been underscored by 451 Research’s Alan Pelz-Sharpe. He comments, “Soonr’s strength in mobile collaboration together with its regional datacenters offer a jurisdictional advantage over competitors in the secure file sharing and collaboration space. To help ensure regional privacy, the data not only resides in the local region, but the transmission of such data also remains local.”
We will continue to focus on global expansion efforts as international cloud service providers, VARs, solution providers and systems integrators look to Soonr to further enable the use of mobile devices for their clients’ increased productivity.

Email overflow is an epidemic that is affecting us all, especially business people. According to research from IT Community Spiceworks, each day around the world in 2013, 144.8 billion emails were sent, which works out to 6.03 billion emails per hour; nearly one email per every person alive on Earth. And only 35% (2.11 billion) were legit (non-SPAM) emails.
While email remains a primary mode of communication in the business world, its usefulness in a fast-paced collaboration-based and content-centered world has diminishing value.
Instant Messaging, Skype, Twitter and other social tools have emerged to serve very specific aspects of communication, and email is most often used for sending a file. But when email is used in this manner, productivity and collaboration suffer.
