We started this business because – even back in the year 2000 – we believed there was a better way for companies to deliver successful construction and engineering projects. At the time, construction was one of the few industries that still relied on paper. Each project generated a massive amount of it – correspondence and documents that needed to be distributed to dispersed teams, quickly and in a controlled manner.
Aconex is now the most widely used online collaboration platform in the world for construction, infrastructure, and energy and resources projects. We've helped manage more than US$1 trillion in capital projects across 70 countries, serving over 70,000 user organizations. Our shares are traded publicly on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) under the ticker code ACX and are included in the S&P / ASX 200 Index.
Aconex allows owners, contractors, construction managers, EPCs, project managers and consultants to collaborate securely, efficiently and easily. Our 850+ employees are dedicated to helping project teams finish early and under budget. Together with our customers, we are transforming how project teams work together, increasing accountability and extending control so more gets done, faster.
Since our founding, five principles have underpinned our growth and the success of our clients:
Equal access for all
Much construction management software actually increases project risk by providing one party with privileged access, to the detriment of others. What’s fair about that? On Aconex, by contrast, each organization on a project controls access to its own data, retains legal ownership of that data and sets rules around how it will be shared. At the same time, because processes on the platform mirror those in the real world of project delivery, everyone ends up with complete, timely access to the information they need.
Cloud + mobile
Aconex was built in the cloud more than a decade ago because we believed that the secure software-as-a-service platform was the future of real-time collaboration. Cloud-based delivery is the only way to easily bring together multiple companies on one system. More recently we've invested in a mobile platform for the same reason. We believe your project should be at your fingertips – in the field, trailer or office – and you should be able to work the way you want.
One project-wide platform
All participants in a project manage information and processes on one easy-to-use platform, from design and feasibility through construction and close-out to handover. Most customers go on to use Aconex across all their project engagements, working with different clients and project teams. As the network grows, each organization sees increased benefit from being part of the ecosystem.
To us, true collaboration means everyone at no extra cost. We offer unlimited numbers of users to every organization participating in your project, unlimited data and unlimited support. And we promise fair, transparent engagements without creeping expenses or unexpected fees. What you get is clear from the start.
We provide your entire project team – not just your own employees – with unlimited support, in a range of languages, anywhere in the world. Take advantage of online training, call our 24/7 helpdesk, or reach out to an industry consultant when you need one. Our experienced staff are located in more than 47 offices in 23 countries around the globe.
Thank you for considering us for your next project. After well over a decade, we are as excited as ever about helping every single new client to deliver their projects in a better way.
