SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Jan 07, 2016 -- Aconex Limited (ASX: ACX), provider of a leading cloud collaboration platform for the global construction industry, today announced a partnership agreement with Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider. Under the terms of the agreement, Aconex and Carahsoft will promote, market and sell the Aconex platform and solutions to public sector customers through Carahsoft's General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule Contract.

"This agreement gives buyers for federal government construction and infrastructure projects ready access to our portfolio of collaboration solutions through Carahsoft," said Chris Dobbyn, senior vice president of corporate development at Aconex. "On these projects, as well as public-private partnership (P3) infrastructure developments, we have helped owners and contractors improve efficiency and reduce risk while saving time and costs throughout the project lifecycle -- from feasibility and design through construction, handover and asset operation. With increasing pressure on federal spending and demand for infrastructure, project-wide collaboration for capital projects has become key to delivering value to the U.S. government and the American people."
Aconex solutions are listed in GSA Advantage!, the online shopping service of the U.S. General Services Administration. For more information on these solutions, please visit the Aconex website at http://www.aconex.com/solutions.
"The rapid adoption of emerging technologies such as the cloud, collaboration software, mobile, and building information modeling (BIM) is transforming construction and infrastructure projects," said Patrick Gallagher, vice president at Carahsoft. "Aconex is helping drive this trend among owners and contractors worldwide, and we look forward to offering our government customers and partners these best-of-breed collaboration solutions for capital projects of all sizes."
