Company Profile

McGough Construction provides construction management services. The firms employees needed to more efficiently collaborate on projects to share large files and access a collaborative project management Web-based application. Moreover, We wanted one big pipe that allowed us better security than having individual Internet sites to tie all our offices together, Ted Harlan, director of IT for McGough Construction said. If we didnt switch over, I would have had a lot of disgruntled employees, frustrated that the connection wasnt fast enough.
