As a general contracting company that services the hospitality industry as well as commercial, institutional and high-end residential markets in Bermuda, Greymane Contracting regularly bids on different projects, exchanging a large volume of documents and drawings.

“These documents frequently go out to dozens of subcontractors and suppliers for pricing,” says Alex DeCouto, president at Greymane Contracting.

Prior to using ShareFile, the company was confronted with the high cost of printing, spending more than $50,000 in one year with a local printer. In addition to the excessive amount of money spent on printing and shipping, the company was also losing valuable time.

“Before ShareFile, it would take us the better part of three or four days to get done what now happens instantaneously. We really needed an efficient way to make inquiries with subcontractors and suppliers for various elements of a project — and, luckily, we found our solution in ShareFile.”

With password-protected access to files, Greymane can be confident about security and maintain complete control over which suppliers and subcontractors have access to individual project files. Employees at the company can monitor activity by tracking exactly which documents have been downloaded, at what time and by whom.

“To put it simply, ShareFile has paid for itself tenfold,” says DeCouto. Learn more about how ShareFile can help your construction firm save money, and try it free for 30 days!
