  • Managing a mega-project consisting of huge investment, complex construction, over 100 organizations and a long project life cycle and multi-party participation.
  • Lack of project wide standardization and informatization management making it difficult to achieve effective control of the schedule, cost and quality and collaborate efficiently.
  • Lack of enterprise-level project management platform to aggregate and analyze the status of the company in real time.
  • Geographically dispersed linear engineering makes it hard to capture the key indicators of the project.
  • Communication with the local government departments is complex and inefficient; the approval processes and document management are dispersed and inconsistent.
  • Claims management, change management and information management for the overseas projects are inefficient.


  • One central system with unlimited users.
  • Secure cloud-based system accessible in multiple languages and across the globe.
  • Robust version control and linking capabilities.
  • Neutral platform which encourages adoption by all team members.


  • 40% faster to find documents and drawings.
  • 120% increase in adoption. More organizations are participating on Aconex than on the past system.
  • Vast improvement in the efficiency of processing project documents.
  • Significant improvement in level of cross organization collaboration.
