Join, the collaborative project delivery platform for the built environment, today announced a new integration with Egnyte, the secure platform for content collaboration and governance in the construction industry.
Proactive risk management and the enforcement of company policies are critical to ensuring information and documents shared among teams remain compliant and secure. This is especially important for data security and IT leaders provisioning projects that need cooperation across various companies and firms, from architecture to engineering to construction.
The new Join and Egnyte integration allows teams using both platforms to align with corporate document storage and compliance protocols. Team members using Join for collaborative project delivery can now directly link Join Items and Milestones to documents stored in Egnyte, with complete assurance that the files are up to date, in compliance, and secure. It also eliminates the need to download files from Egnyte and re-upload them to Join, thus increasing efficiency and reinforcing project document storage protocols.
Because the files are centralized, they automatically adhere to corporate document storage and compliance policies when accessed in Join. For compliance and IT executives, it ensures greater control over document administration with enterprise-grade security.
“As construction projects become more complex, the need for best-in-class collaboration, as well as documentation governance and security, are more important than ever,” said Jim Forester, Co-founder and Head of Business Development at Join. “We’re excited to build on our partnership with Egnyte and introduce additional reasons for IT and information security leaders to champion the use of our platforms.”
Built to handle AEC firms’ unique knowledge management, compliance and collaboration needs, Egnyte’s cloud solution gives them real-time access to their critical project collaboration needs.
“We are excited to have Join as part of the growing Egnyte AEC ecosystem with this new integration for AEC teams,” said Ronen Vengosh, Senior Vice President of Industry Practices and Solutions at Egnyte. “With our integration, customers can extend collaboration across internal and external teams in a secure, yet highly accessible platform to drive fast decision making while assuring project owners that their information is protected from pre-construction to closeout.”
