Solve large scale Revit and CAD file sharing over the WAN so that your global project teams feel like they are in the same room.

Large scale Revit and CAD file sharing over the WAN is tough. Files can often take over an hour to open and models can take just as long to sync, so companies are often forced to duplicate and manage multiple copies of complex project files in each location or try expensive solutions like WAN optimization which does little to improve performance.
