In general, the use of computer technology is prevalent throughout every aspect of our consulting engineering business. All our work, communication, document production, engineering, CAD drawing, Building Information Modeling (BIM), database, accounting, management, administration, marketing, recruiting, and file maintenance processes are highly computerized, functioning through our high speed computer network. Every employee of WYLIE utilizes a Windows networked computer workstation for all aspects of their individual and collective work. All work and data files are organized for easy access and secure, back-up (daily) storage, on high-speed high capacity network servers.
We use Microsoft Office 365 as our primary organization and communication tool for flowing information between internal and external team members and Clients via network and Internet e-mail. All personnel have individual e-mail accounts and Internet access at their personal workstations for business use. Our Internet access uses high speed broadband service over a T-3 data line. Our dedication to the use of the most modern technologies in our business processes is reflected in the use of our information-rich web site (www.wylieassociates.com) for recruiting high quality personnel from across the U.S.
