About Aconex Limited
They started this business because – even back in the year 2000 – they 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. They have helped manage more than US$1 trillion in capital projects across 70 countries, serving over 70,000 user organizations. Their 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. Their 850+ employees are dedicated to helping project teams finish early and under budget. Together with their customers, they are transforming how project teams work together, increasing accountability and extending control so more gets done, faster.
Since their founding, five principles have underpinned their growth and the success of their 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 they 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 they have invested in a mobile platform for the same reason. They 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 Aconex Limited, true collaboration means everyone at no extra cost. They offer unlimited users to every organization participating in your project, unlimited data and unlimited support. And they promise fair, transparent engagements without creeping expenses or unexpected fees. What you get is clear from the start.
Aconex Limited provide your entire project team – not just your own employees – with unlimited support, in a range of languages, anywhere in the world.

Connected BIM, for Better Delivery
BIM is transforming the way assets are designed, constructed and delivered. Clients expect it, and governments mandate it. But using existing tools, projects suffer from disconnected teams and disconnected data. Aconex Connected BIM simplifies multidimensional model management – bringing teams, model data and project data together on a single online collaboration platform. And with Connected BIM, multiple organizations can easily share, visualize, coordinate, review, mark up and contribute directly from a web browser. You'll get the full benefits of BIM collaboration, including a complete set of linked handover information and an audit of all decisions, without the pain of specialised software.
The New World of Connected BIM
Access to BIM for the Whole Project Community
Access models fast, with just a browser. Get clients, contractors, sub-contractors, or anyone on the project involved in BIM and model management.
Merge Large Model Sets from Different Authors
Upload and merge models big or small. They have made sure that you can view even gigabyte data sets from a range of authoring tools – all without having to install software on your computer.
A Complete Information Library
Keep all asset information together on one integrated platform, connecting objects with documents and decisions to create a complete set of interconnected data.
Access Models in the Field
Improve communication and understanding on site by viewing models in the field with your laptop or the Connected BIM app for iPad (available soon).
Share BIM Models for Smarter Processes at Every Stage
Authors Publish Models in a Single Click
No hoops to jump through. Model authors can upload models with a single click, right from Revit or their preferred design software.
Speed up Design Coordination
Resolve design issues in real time. Raise an RFI or design query from within the model you're viewing, sending the recipient to that exact location for quick resolution.
A Record of Every Decision
Keep a rock solid audit trail. All communications remain right inside your model, so you can get the full picture of who made what decision, and when.
The Right Version, Every Time
Avoid mistakes and confusion on your project. With version control of model objects, you can quickly see what's changed and be confident that teams are working off the latest information.
Powerful but Simple BIM Management

Take Control of Interface Management
Interface management sounds easy—two parties working on a project make an agreement about how to exchange information. But managing these agreements can get complicated fast, particularly if you are using traditional tools like email and Excel spreadsheets. With Aconex, you identify, define, manage and close out interfaces from a single, collaborative platform. Ensure subsystem compatibility, coordinate specialist contractors and keep vendors aligned across your entire project.
Oversight of Every Interface
Identify and monitor every interface in your project in real time. Respond to issues across organizations and regions as they arise.

Every party's information is securely protected, and no one can access information outside their company's data store unless it is explicitly shared, protecting IP and building trust.

A central place for communications, interface management and workflows reduces the effort required for regulatory compliance.
The Best of Both Worlds: Collaboration and Control
Large construction and engineering projects have lots of uncertainty and carry enormous risk. That's why successful project teams are those that respond best to changing conditions. They choose tools like Aconex to manage information and processes, leveraging more than a decade of expertise in designing and operating secure, enterprise-class, cloud-based systems. Aconex delivers predictable performance, no matter what challenges a project team is facing.
Security and Performance
From controlled access and authentication to high levels of encryption and rigorous physical security, they help customers meet the strictest compliance requirements and keep their data safe. ISO 27001 certified since 2011, they continue to constantly test their systems for weakness, including regular penetration tests by third parties, and continuously work to evolve their security model.
Projects typically use multiple systems, scattering information and making it hard to see the big picture. The Aconex Web Services API toolkit offers a way to bring all your data together, so you can monitor project-critical information from one interface. Make the most of your investment in legacy systems and ensure the information you rely on for day-to-day decisions is accurate and up to date.
Today's mobile workers need mobile platforms, but many projects still use systems that were designed for a PC-centric world. The Aconex platform puts mobile first with construction apps that make it easy to distribute and review documents, collaborate around models, commission new equipment, conduct field inspections and operate and maintain existing assets from a mobile device.
The most effective project teams collaborate on level playing fields. They avoid systems where one party retains master control, and instead they choose neutral platforms like Aconex that give everyone access to the information they need while enforcing data ownership and security. On Aconex, every organization that is part of a project sets rules regarding what information will be shared, with whom and when.
