Some of the most common IT issues that architects face in their day to day work are avoidable. At Simple Biz, we’ve worked with a range of businesses within the architecture industry and have identified common IT challenges that can be resolved through our proven IT solutions.

2. Remote Work Solutions That Enable Quick Access Anytime, Anywhere
Remote work solutions offer incredible benefits to better productivity and efficiency in communication, however it is sometimes difficult to work remotely, this can be because of many factors, such as large files, and high resolution rendering. Without the right technology it can be very difficult to work remotely. The good news is, there is cutting edge technology that can empower your Architect firm to work remotely from an everyday laptop or device, yet still render in full resolution whilst the rest of your team work on the same file. Our IT specialists at Simple Biz provide a way that you and your employees can work flexibly without any worries or concerns about performance.

With overwhelmingly large amounts of data used in Architecture firms, back ups are an essential to the Architecture industry. But not all back ups are made the same - or efficient. In fact more often than not, most architects firms don't even know if there backups are successful each day, sadly by the time they need to be restored its all too late and you have now suffered data loss. Simple Biz provides true automated business continuity solutions conducts regular tests and checks to ensure your back ups are set up properly, updated accordingly, and executed when needed.
