Summary

Lahey Constructions, a top Tier 2 contractor in Australia, delivering high quality government projects, was looking to transform and significantly grow their business. They identified technology and specifically Aconex as a key solution to support that transformation through process and information management, reporting and control.

Business challenges

Inconsistent processes across projects

Lack of timely and accurate management reporting

Upstream and downstream collaboration with external stakeholders (Clients, Consultants and Program Managers)

Disparate software solutions and databases that were not integrated

Inefficient processes due to lack of tracking, transparency and automation

Standardization of project information and process management across the operations of the business

The efficiency Lahey has gained by using Aconex is making us hard to beat in competitive situations.
