The best run projects use Aconex Mail to manage risk and track all their project communications. The benefits over standard email are substantial, including easy tracking of status, visibility for the project team and a rock-solid audit trail.
While most project teams recognize this and use Aconex Mail as their project communication management tool, there is a still a small subset of users on any given project who use Aconex intermittently. These people tend to manage their project correspondence in Microsoft® Outlook because it is more familiar to them. Unfortunately, this increases the risk of data being lost when transferred outside of Aconex Mail, compromising audit trails for critical project decisions.
