Aconex Adds Mobility to Construction Project Collaboration

New Aconex Mobile for iPhone Ensures Anywhere, Anytime Access to Project Information

SAN BRUNO, CA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2011) - Aconex, the world's largest provider of online collaboration solutions to the construction and engineering industries, announced Aconex Mobile for iPhone®, providing on-the-go project team members with anywhere, anytime access to project documents and other team members. Aconex Mobile for iPhone lets users manage many day-to-day collaboration tasks, including managing project mail, viewing and contacting project members from the directory, searching for and viewing documents, uploading and superseding documents, and creating new pictures, videos and audio notes and sharing them immediately with the team.

Aconex Mobile for iPhone has already been downloaded more than 2,800 times and is featured on the "What's Hot" and "Top Free iPhone Business Apps" lists in the Australian App Store, where it was first launched.

User comments from App Stores around the world include:

  • "As an architect this app has made my life easier. It is so easy to use and it helps me stay on top of projects when I'm out of the office."
  • "Really helpful App! Great to be able to use Aconex on my phone. Awesome and easy to use."

Construction project team members typically spend substantial amounts of time away from their desks. The combination of the Aconex web-based collaboration platform and a high-quality handheld device like the iPhone enables users to make decisions on the road, capture information such as defects onsite, and review information downloaded to the device, even when there is no mobile or Wi-Fi internet access.
