United Living optimizes project performance with Aconex

Following a merger, United Living required a single enterprise-wide solution to drive streamlined project management across its operations and supply chain. The company selected the Aconex platform and suite of solutions to ensure consistent data and processes through every project lifecycle across its portfolio. The first project was a two-tower build of 200 residential apartments on the Chelsea waterfront in London.

Everyone has access to project data, and everyone controls access to their own data.
