Aconex, provider of used online project collaboration solutions for the construction, infrastructure, power, mining, and oil and gas industries, recently announced that Dalmia Cement Bharat Ltd., India's domestic cement manufacturers, has selected its cloud collaboration platform for its production plants in the states of Assam, Karnataka and Orissa, respectively.
The solution is providing Dalmia Cements with great benefits as it has helped the cement manufacturer seamlessly manage more than 110,000 items of correspondence, 30,000 documents and 3,500 workflow processes. Dalmia Cements have been able to ensure more transparency and accountability as almost 95 percent of its project drawings are secure. Moreover, the team is also able to access drawing reviews in real time.
"The system provides benefit across the project -- time, cost and risk management," said Puneet Arora, executive director of projects at Dalmia Cement. "The time savings are definitely the number one benefit. Our project team is dispersed across the country, and Aconex allows faster coordination, distribution, review, and sign-off of files. The whole process is more efficient, and everyone can see what's required of them."
Andy Lake, general manager of Asia at Aconex, commented, "The construction and infrastructure markets in India have been very receptive to online collaboration for project management, and Dalmia Cement is one example of this. We expect demand for our solutions to continue increasing as the country proceeds with its aggressive pace of development."
Aconex enables project managers to reduce the cost and risk inherent in capital projects of all sizes and improve efficiency, productivity and accountability for all project participants.
