After several years of search for a method to enable online access to BWSC’s 3D CAD drawings, Jens Andersen finally found the solution: The Application Accelerator Platform from the Citrix competency center Lean-On. The Application Accelerator Platform is a uniquely designed system with Citrix software and other technologies, enabling fast and central deployment of heavy 3D CAD applications, such as PDMS. The Lean-On Application Accelerator is based on central access for all users with the option of integrating other offices or subsidiaries into the solution.
“Initially we performed both Proof of Concept and Proof of Context. This gave us clear results: The employees involved in our tests were located in Bulgaria, and the distance was not noticeable at all! Delivery of the graphic intensive application took place as if the employees were located at our head office in Allerød, Denmark, also being the location of our data.”
The solution meant a significant performance increase, hence an increase of productivity and also a new way of working: ”All parties – at the construction sites, at our headquarter, at our collaborators’ locations around the world and even employees from their home PC, can access the same data. This means that we eliminate the unproductive work of copying drawings and checking if everybody uses the same version of a given drawing. In doing so, we save time and avoid errors,” Jens Andersen explains. In the capacity of IT Manager he has had the satisfaction of finding a solution that at the same time makes end users happy and supports the business in the best way possible.
