File Management For The Architecture, Engineering & Construction (AEC) Industry

Transfer sensitive and large files to people in the office and onsite in order to bring your project to fruition. SmartFile’s secure file sharing and management tools help the AEC industry build a strong foundation for project success.

Unlimited File Sizes

As long as you have space in your account, you can upload it. Of course, FTP clients are the preferred method for the gigantic files!

Secure End-to-End Encryption

All files are secured in-transit with no less than 128-bit encryption and stored at rest using AES 256-bit encryption.

Analyze and Export Activity

SmartFile's audit and visual tools help you monitor user and file access to identify irregularities and outlying events.

File Versioning

We can track multiple versions of bids, contracts, vendor proposals, blueprints, contracts, architectural diagrams and subsurface geophysical maps.

Send Bids, Contracts and Blueprints through Various Secure Access Methods

Whether your project architects are sending pre-bid CAD files internally or your engineers are sending gigantic blueprint PDFs to contractors, SmartFile can help you securely transfer these files and monitor access.

Various access methods help team members in the office or onsite deliver content quickly and safely. Your account can be accessed, managed and delivered through FTP clients, a branded and responsive web portal, integrated with your custom-built tools with our API and even as a mounted drive.

Keep Teams Efficient and Your Data Siloed With Permissions

SmartFile supports IT in allowing architects, general contractors, engineers and construction managers to share critical project files quickly but without overlap. Granular rules and permissions ensure your users have access to the files they need, nothing more.

For instance, you can let your entry-level architect access PDFs but prevent them from sharing confidential CAD files with an outside engineering firm. It also lets you collaborate with external contractors for bids while ensuring they can’t see their competition’s uploaded files.
