Oracle Aconex facilitates the project management processes in our company, with reliable constructions features. Oracle Aconex gives us a budget tracking possibility, where events and operational expenses are marked and identified. Moreso, Oracle Aconex helps in incident reporting and operates online or even offline to reach more businesses. The tool has permit and insurance tracking features, allowing the entire project to run smoothly.
  • The existence of insurance and permit tracking.
  • Budgetary control measures and expense monitor.
  • Job costing and logistical management.
  • Skills and competencies improvement.
  • Oracle Aconex has no compliance management
  • More so, equipment management and asset valuation is missing.
  • The accounting integration lacks on Oracle Aconex.
For outstanding project managing and operational assistance, Oracle Aconex is an incredible program. The budget that suits every project are met and followed. More so, Oracle Aconex takes the permits required, for instance, the insurance permit and the license tracking. The contractor management feature is also encoded on Oracle Aconex, making the investor and the contractor have the same objective.

Oracle Aconex provides great Cloud project management capabilities which are very reliable on construction projects. Budgeting tracking, easy on project document management. Scheduling capability and easy uploading of multiple project documents on Cloud make the Oracle Aconex my best management solution.
  • Time tracking functionality is amazing.
  • All the features are easy and active.
  • The Cloud services offered by Oracle Aconex is efficient.
  • Sharing of projects comments and document can be more efficient.
  • Estimation capabilities can be improved.
  • The initial configuration can easily confuse the beginners.
When it comes to budgeting and also tracking of budgeting, and project scheduling, I effectively recommend Oracle Aconex on that. Safety management and the compliance management processes are quite effective using this platform as well as the easy project activities reporting.

We use Oracle Aconex as a cloud-based solution for our operations. Some of the main problems that it's able to address for us are document management, workflow automation, issues with handover and company-to-company correspondence, and bid management. We find that it can connect and partition these different areas very well.
  • Classification of documents
  • Makes info accessible to whoever you need
  • Problems syncing
  • Permissions issues
It seems that Oracle Aconex is particularly well suited for small to medium-sized businesses. For our company size, at least, Oracle Aconex is more than capable of providing all of the operation management needs that we could ever conceivably need. However, I can see how some of its flaws wouldn't work for a larger company.
We're delighted with Oracle Aconex's functionality, UX, capabilities, and feature offerings. The only thing that keeps us from giving it a perfect 10/10 is the price. There are other options out there that won't burn as deep of a hole in your pocket, but then again, you get what you pay for.

Our company is using Oracle Aconex only in the engineering department for all types of construction and facility management. It is also used as a document management system accessible from both desktops and mobile devices i.e. smartphones and tablets. It allows our employees to collaborate online while working on the same projects from different locations.
  • Anything can be easily managed from any mobile device, no matter if it is iPhone or Android.
  • It is a self sufficient platform incorporating cost and schedule with drawings and construction models.
  • It allows us to create digital operation and maintenance manuals necessary for seamless handover.
  • Managing BIM models at the object level could be more user friendly.
  • Mail capabilities are a bit limited.
Oracle Aconex works perfectly well if process visibility, version control and tracking are required. In the case of our engineering department the possibility to create custom workflows is life saving. Avoiding limitations of manual correspondence with third parties is also a wonderful thing to have for the platform you are using. The audit trails which are unalterable help a lot in multiple common scenarios.
Almost all issues that we have encountered were quickly solved by Oracle support team. One exception was a really severe problem where processing took significantly longer, however we were kept up-to-date about the progress by the support team. The severity of the issue resulted in all lines of support being involved, including the development team.

Aconex is being used as a client communication tool at my workplace for documents and mail queries. It is used across the whole organization by projects whereby the client's document control program uses Aconex. Aconex addresses the business issue of client-based programs, which we are required to use to comply with our clients' standards.
  • Revision Control.
  • Document Transmittal.
  • Bulk Processing.
  • Mail close out features.
  • Document searching.
  • Document selection for transmittal.
Aconex is well suited to offices that have document standards across the board, that is the same identifiers for drawings and documents. Aconex is intelligently programmed to extract data from filenames, and has fields upon entering data for the review process. I have not come across a scenario where Aconex is less appropriate so far in my use.

Aconex was used by our project team on a $30 million horizontal infrastructure project in Toronto for a public sector client. The project participants were the client (owner), project manager (our firm), constructor, landscape lead consultant and a civil engineering consultant. The Aconex "project" was bifurcated into the design development/construction documentation and construction phase. Aconex addressed both neutrally hosted file sharing and business process control.
  • File Sharing - unlimited storage, version control and access control on a neutral host - Aconex is significantly superior to ftp, SharePoint or a contractor hosted platform in that once onboarded, each user organization has equal privileges and can in turn onboard any number of members within the respective organizations.
  • Process and Workflow Management - while imperfect, Aconex offers the opportunity to customize process control and enforcement. Our team used these processes for RFI preparation and response, submittal tracking and other custom requirements.
  • Neutrality - while mentioned, the neutral host places all project participants on a equal basis. Typically, non-neutral platforms favor in-house participants to the detriment of the project. Until shared, files are 100% private to the respective organizations.
  • Mobile interface - good (not perfect) access to unlimited project file information from a mobile device.
  • Audit trail - no more "I didn't get that document". File sharing and file opening is tracked by user. Transmittals are a matter of record and there's no 'delete' function.
  • Interface needs work; graphically inelegant, somewhat non-intuitive.
  • Process controls could be better 'templated' for industry standards.
  • Dashboard/to do for project managers - it's still too hard to see who is slowing the project down.
[It is] well suited to large scale complex construction projects with many participants. Aconex requires patience and training and, although it's good, it could be better. Short duration, small projects probably aren't a good fit.
