Using Aconex for Document Management and Project Follow-up in Construction & Infrastructure

Sporveien has undergone a substantial transformation, transitioning from a folder-based file handling system to Aconex metadata-based system. This shift involved document handling, contracts follow-up and construction site management. Implementing a new system necessitates a broad and concerted effort, challenging established processes and routines. Sharing their experience with Aconex for document management and construction site follow-up, Sporveien will also highlight key insights gained during this transition phase.
