Engineering Firms Need More from their IT Than the Typical Office

Engineering Firms Need More from their IT Than the Typical Office

When it comes to engineering firms, precision is everything. Your tools need to be accurate, your production needs to be on time, and when something is amiss it can cause a domino effect.

That’s why your organization can’t rely on the same technology that a typical office might.

When Production Needs to be Perfect

Whether your business produces a single product or you specialize in custom parts, perfection and quality is the name of the game. You won’t be able to impress clients or meet deadlines if you can’t ensure a high level of quality. There is a huge amount of hard work, talent, and detail that needs to go into the work that you do.

Your equipment needs to be up to the task. This includes your everyday tools, the resources from your supplier, and the technology that your team uses to get the job done on time.

The Typical Office Workstation Won’t Cut It

The typical PC workstation for most offices can handle everything the typical office worker will throw at it; spreadsheets, line-of-business applications, document editing, etc. These days, even low-end PCs are pretty capable when it comes to work environments. 

If you are running AutoCAD or other drafting/design applications, that office PC is going to struggle. It might be able to run on a basic setup—but your engineers need stability and reliability to perform at their peak. If your IT provider isn’t familiar with the demanding requirements that your software needs not just to run, but to run well, your technology investment is only going to cause frustration.

We’ve watched talented engineers struggle with poorly implemented, underpowered workstations. We get how incredibly frustrating and demoralizing it can be.

That doesn’t mean your firm should be getting kicked in the wallet for every new workstation either. Some equipment can be expensive, but that doesn’t mean an engineer needs an expensive workstation with luxury PC gaming specs. 

The same can be said for servers and other infrastructure. Many machines have very specific requirements to run smoothly, and cobbing things together with standard equipment is only going to cause chaos down the road. Engineers often deal with really large files, and require plenty of network bandwidth to perform their jobs properly.

You Deserve IT Support that Understands Your Industry

At Capstone Works, we’re a great fit for engineering firms of all sizes. We’ve had plenty of experience working with many other engineering companies throughout the Austin area. 

If your current IT provider just doesn’t seem to understand the nuances of your industry, we’d be happy to lend a hand and see what we can do. If anything, we can audit your existing infrastructure and point you in the right direction with a free consultation. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if there is anything we can do for you!
