Covid’s 8% Productivity Boost, Nov. 19, 12:00 p.m. PST

When COVID hit, the AEC industry was divided into two groups. The first sent their people home, where they logged in and got straight back to work with productivity increases. For the second group who couldn't access files at the same speed, productivity dropped by up to 35%. Join Panzura and ATG in a discussion about what it takes to have a business so resilient that your organization can work from anywhere, at exactly the same speed as an onsite office.
