COVIDโ€™s 8% Productivity Boost

When COVID hit, the AEC industry was divided into 2 groups. The first group sent their people home, where they logged in and got straight back to work.

For the second group, everything changed. They couldn’t access files at the same speed. They started creating multiple file versions that needed to be merged.ย  Productivity dropped by up to 35%. However, companies in the first group actually saw productivity increase!

Panzura partner ATG saw first-hand the challenges and successes that their customers faced among this transition.

VP of Sales Danny Doyle and AEC Specialist Michael Echave join Panzuraโ€™s Direct of Product Management Greg Wesner to offer some fascinating insights into what let some firms boost their productivity, while others fell behind.
