New Case Study: G&S Engineering Services Creates an Efficient Information Platform for Local and Remote Workers with Microsoft SharePoint Replication

Based in Queensland, Australia, G&S Engineering Services performs manufacturing, construction, electrical, and maintenance work primarily in the mining, energy, and infrastructure sectors. The company uses Microsoft SharePoint as its intranet and document management platform. With approximately 450 users accessing the environment, the company’s primary farm is located on premises in the organization’s headquarters in Mackay, Queensland with two local farms in offices in Brisbane, Queensland and Karratha, Western Australia.

G&S planned to extend SharePoint to project sites in regional and remote locations as well. This would allow project workers to access the latest information on the company’s intranet, as well as create project documents to collaborate upon with colleagues in Mackay, Brisbane, or Karratha. In order to do this, G&S required a solution that could replicate content between the geographically distributed farms and work with the technical constraints of the project sites. The SharePoint replication tool also needed to function properly with the the high latency and low bandwidth of the company’s satellite and 3G connections.

By implementing the DocAve Software, G&S was able to:

  • Ensure compliance with legislation by providing local offices and project sites access to the latest procedures, work health and safety requirements, and project templates
  • Increase employee collaboration and facilitate project control by bi-directional replication of critical, up-to-date project information across headquarters, local offices, and project sites in real time
  • Optimise use of bandwidth during content replication, with data compression, advanced network control capabilities, and monitoring of network connections performance
  • Reduce IT efforts with automated backup of content and restoration taking only one third of the time required by native functionality
