  • Online collaboration system helped manage documents and correspondence across the multi-site project.
  • Neutral, cloud-based platform improved efficiency across different organizations.
  • Project team accessed, distributed, tracked, and archived files in real time.
  • System stored all project information securely so that it couldn’t be lost or corrupted.

Results

  • 440 people from 150 different organizations used Aconex.
  • Project team managed more than 30,000 documents and correspondence items each month.
  • Tracking outstanding RFIs improved accountability across the team and ensured follow-up and closure.
  • Centralized database reduced the need for a distributor of project information.
