SAN BRUNO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 17, 2012) - Aconex, the world's leading provider of online project collaboration solutions for the construction, infrastructure, mining, power, and oil and gas industries, today announced the launch of Aconex Mobile for iPad. The new app, winner of the 2012 Australian Mobile Award for Project Management, enables project teams to access, share and review documents and drawings; capture and transmit photos, video, and audio; and manage tasks, issues and actions from anywhere at any time. Aconex Mobile for iPad follows Aconex Mobile for iPhone, launched in May 2011, in the continued expansion of the company's mobile cloud collaboration portfolio.
"Project teams require hands-on process control and access to information 24/7, wherever they are -- on site, in the trailer, on the road, or back in the office," said Leigh Jasper, CEO of Aconex. "Seamless mobility across multiple devices is critical to the efficiency and productivity of end-to-end project management in a collaborative environment. Aconex Mobile for iPad complements and extends the capabilities of our iPhone app to help project managers make timely, actionable decisions based on a firm command of all project information and processes."
Aconex Mobile for iPhone has been downloaded more than 10,000 times and won the 2011 Australian Mobile Award for Project Management. The iPad app offers all of the same benefits as the iPhone app, plus the ability to review and update documents and drawings on a larger display and keypad, creating new opportunities to work more effectively in the field. Both Aconex Mobile apps are available to all users of the Aconex platform and can be downloaded from the App Store under the search term 'Aconex'. See the video on Aconex Mobile here.
Aconex Mobile for iPad users can:
- Capture photos, video and audio on site for communication and distribution to others
- Access and manage the most current project documents and communications from any location at any time
- Review images and drawings, and deliver comments and updates to project team members
- Manage tasks and issues, and communicate action items that address them
- View and edit project information offline when a mobile connection is unavailable, and then synchronize files with the Aconex platform when the connection is restored
Mobile access to the Aconex platform by all project team members helps owners, contractors and project managers achieve higher quality for projects of all sizes -- on time and on budget.
