MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- Jun 30, 2015 -- Aconex Limited (ASX: ACX), provider of a leading cloud collaboration platform for the global construction industry, today announced that it has signed a three-year enterprise subscription agreement with Lendlease (ASX: LLC), a leading international property and infrastructure group. The agreement will standardize the use of Aconex across Lendlease's Building business in Australia and initially its major construction projects in Asia, while making the platform available to other business units globally.
Under the enterprise agreement, Lendlease will use Aconex to fully automate its project collaboration and information management processes and to enhance its mobile capabilities. The Aconex platform will be used for the entire project lifecycle, from feasibility and design through construction, inspections and handover, providing enhanced data capture and utilization as well as related efficiencies in the business.
Aconex plans to invest in the Lendlease corporate relationship with the addition of product functionality that it believes will benefit all Aconex customers and users worldwide. This investment is expected to moderately increase Aconex operating costs for research and development in the next 12 months. Over the medium term of 1-3 years, Aconex will also invest in sales and marketing with the addition of account management resources in its international regions to drive long-term growth.
"We're pleased with the opportunity to take our long-time project relationship with Lendlease to the next level with this unlimited enterprise subscription agreement," said Aconex CEO Leigh Jasper. "The deal represents an important validation of our industry leadership position not only in the Australia and Asia regions, but globally as well. We believe it will significantly expand our global user network and drive new business with Lendlease and its many project partners."
