Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Aconex

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.
  • Increased accountability for all tracked areas within the platform is very beneficial in our case.
  • A visible increase in process management quality could be noticed.
Oracle Aconex seems to be tailored for our specific needs since it supports construction project information and all related type of data. It is secure and compliant which makes it crucial for real-time collaboration and control of job site processes. Other platforms that we have evaluated are still well designed, but much more generic which is not favourable for our engineering projects.
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.

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.
