Aconex specialises in large scale, complex projects in the world of construction, infrastructure, energy and resources projects. Global projects that have worked in partnership with Aconex include Qatar Rail, New York City Hall and Marina Bay Sands.
Projects successes are determined by the speed and quality of information sharing and decision making. Our strategy is a project-wide approach which include sub-contractors, it enhances efficiency and mitigates risks,” said Jasper.
Recently floated on the ASX, Aconex’s key success which has been central to the growth of the organisation is the network ecosystem that drives new business.
The power of networks has played an important role in increasing returns for Aconex, which utilises a four stage cycle starting off with the owner and contractors that select our business. Then as project user and networks grow, it increases collaboration and information across all stakeholders generating positive feedback and returned business.
“The series is aimed at promoting innovation in the Victorian business and academic communities,” Amy Harrington, Manager, RMIT Business Enterprise Relations said.
“It provides a forum for the exchange of innovative ideas and experiences and a vehicle for the development of networks between business, government and academics.”
