Agreement Signed to Offer Software for Government Projects
Construction industry cloud collaboration platform provider Aconex, www.aconex.com, San Francisco, Calif., has announced a partnership agreement with government IT (information technology) solutions provider Carahsoft Technology Corp., www.carahsoft.com, Reston, Va., under which, Aconex and Carahsoft will promote, market, and sell the Aconex platform and solutions to public-sector customers through Carahsoft’s GSA (General Services Admin.) Schedule Contract.
“This agreement gives buyers for federal government construction and infrastructure projects ready access to our portfolio of collaboration solutions through Carahsoft,” explains Chris Dobbyn, senior vice president of corporate development at Aconex. “On these projects, as well as public-private partnership 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.”
“The rapid adoption of emerging technologies such as the cloud, collaboration software, mobile, and BIM (building information modeling) is transforming construction and infrastructure projects,” observes 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.”
Aconex solutions are listed in GSA Advantage!, the online shopping service of the U.S. GSA. “With increasing pressure on federal spending and demand for infrastructure,” concludes Dobbyn, “projectwide collaboration for capital projects has become key to delivering value to the U.S. government and the American people.”
