Overall Satisfaction with Aconex

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.
  • Being able to communicate with a client for document submission.
  • Client communication for mail that is traceable.
  • Double handling of documents, as we have another internal document control program.
Aconex's document control workflow allows for multiple versions of the same revision, enabling markups to be seen and document history as appropriate. This is on par with SOLIDWORKS EPDM, and is by far better than InEight's TeamBinder, as the originator and uploader of the document are able to change the version without the need for an administrator.
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.
