BIMBOX: Hardware Solution with Unique Capabilities — CrossRoad Engineers

Crossroad Engineers

Customer Challenge: Software Performance

CrossRoad Engineers was established in 1995 with a goal to create a family-oriented business rather than a large corporate firm. Exclusively in Indiana, they specialize in transportation, site development, surveying and right-of-way management, working closely with the Indiana DOT.

“About a year ago, we had some issues with Civil 3D performance and had been reluctant to continue buying Dell machines because we weren’t seeing improvements,” said Andrew Wolf, Vice President of CrossRoad Engineers.

Project Goals

CrossRoad Engineers noted that basic and advanced tasks in Civil 3D seemed to be getting slower and it was frustrating for their users. They were looking to remedy this and achieve two primary goals:

  1. Accelerate mundane day-to-day tasks to improve workflows
  2. Purchase a machine that aligned with business goals

Business Outcomes

Through benchmarking and testing, BIMBOX proved to be the best option for CrossRoad Engineers. “When our CAD techs would run a publish job on a Dell system, the computer would freeze for up to 30 minutes until it was done. With BIMBOX, our CAD techs can run the publish job and keep working,” said Andrew.

Similar to CrossRoad, many small businesses avoid big purchases if they can’t justify them. BIMBOX’s 30-day trial allowed CrossRoad Engineers the opportunity to do a return-on-investment analysis to make sure the cost made sense for what they needed and they felt comfortable with their large purchase decision. “Right away, BIMBOX proved to be valuable and led us to make the switch. With the unique capabilities, like custom direct die CPU cooling, BIMBOX was the clear winner out of the options we considered,” said Andrew.

“What stood out to me the most was the performance improvement. BIMBOX has blown us away. The speed of launching and opening files and running through our daily tasks was unbelievable. Hands down, BIMBOX was a no-brainer for us – the purchase made sense financially. It’s crazy how much time and money can be saved by just switching computers.”
