Panorama Antennas replaces Dropbox and SugarSync with CentreStack

Panorama Antennas had tried using both Dropbox and SugarSync for file sharing, but they
took issue with the fact that their data was being stored offsite and was difficult to track.
“We weren’t happy about the fact that we did not know where the data is and it was
difficult to control because it is a separate system, not server-based, and offsite,” said
Christopher Jesman, Director at Panorama Antennas.
Furthermore, the process for updating files in both systems were set up such that
“eventually the files got out of sync,” added Chris.
Panorama needed a solution that employees could access easily, but that would also keep
files secure, locally hosted, and up-to-date.
Panorama Antennas partnered with CentreStack to provide their file-sharing solution.
With CentreStack, they are able to use an on-premise server while also managing
permissions using Active Directory.
“Access to the existing file system is very, very easy to implement with CentreStack.
CentreStack also provides reliability as if you were in the office at all times,” said Chris.
Because the files are all stored on-premise, Panorama Antennas now trusts that their files
are secure and compliant under GDPR regulations.
Everybody globally has access to the same files which are all up-to-date
and accurate, from a system that’s also secure and easy to implement.

globally without anybody having
to even pick up the phone to talk
them through it. It wasn’t hard at
all,” said Chris.
