Business challenges

  • Information dispersed between the working team and their different systems: computers frequently had old versions of documents and physical documents were still frequently used but not easy to locate
  • Lack of consistent order or structure to the documentation across organizations meant that document versions and drawings were difficult to control
  • Reporting required a significant amount of time to collate relevant information from multiple sources and it was hard to ensure completeness of reporting


  • Aconex instills internal order to project management: both in terms of operational execution and cost management
  • Centralized, standardized, and codified information align the working team.
  • Unrivaled total control over the project: across both external and internal teams working simultaneously from multiple locations
  • Reporting is quick, easy, and agile to produce: enabling measurement of progress against critical milestones
  • The audit process is anticipated to be 50% faster, more complete and produce better results than the process would have through a manual process, since all documents and drawings are easily accessible through Aconex
  • Documents and drawings can be found in just a few clicks. It is much faster than using the past process
  • Assurance of correct versioning and consistent access to the right documents has improved quality and decreased disputes
  • Quality inspections are anticipated to take half the time compared to doing inspections via a traditional paper-based system because documents are organized and easily located in the cloud
  • Traceability of documents significantly reduces execution timings and facilitates optimal control of the project
