The Age of the Doc Controller

In a Viewpoint article published this week in Engineering News-Record, Aconex CEO Leigh Jasper points to the role that document controllers increasingly play in delivering on-time, on-budget projects. Once seen as “only” admin folk, the focus on the value of information has pushed DCs to get the skills they need to deploy information and process management across dozens of companies on a project. Far from just administering, they directly affect the availability and accuracy of the information that these stakeholders base critical decisions on.

The article shows how clients have benefited by achieving best-practice Doc Control on the Aconex platform. One saved $2m on a single project by slashing review times. Others have reduced by 28% the time it takes to make a decision needing input from multiple project participants.

We see the DC as a rising star in the construction project world. And with its internationally-run and platform-agnostic Certificate in Document Control, Aconex has been a pioneer in delivering professional development courses to the Doc Control community.
