Challenges

  • Multiple geographically dispersed organizations on the project team.

  • Audit trail provides record of who did what and when.
  • Aconex implementation, training and support got the project up and running quickly.

  • Documents for all suppliers are captured, processed, tracked, and reported for efficiency and accuracy.
  • Project cost and risk are reduced.
