Company Overview: We are a forward-thinking design engineering firm specializing in water-based large moving structures, with two strategically located offices in the North and South of the UK. Our mission is to provide innovative and efficient engineering support to our clients.
Current Challenges: Our technical deployment currently faces inefficiencies due to the separation of our two locations. Challenges include work duplication, collaboration difficulties on projects, and limited access to shared files and folders. Despite having a VPN, our staff’s need for remote work capabilities requires improvement.
