Chiyoda Corporation Selects Aconex for Global Project Collaboration
EPC to Provide Project Teams With Mobile Access to Collaboration
SAN BRUNO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/20/13 -- Aconex, provider of
the world's most widely used online project collaboration solutions
for the construction, infrastructure, power, mining, and oil and gas
industries, today announced its selection by Chiyoda Corporation, a
global engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm based in
Japan. The company's wide-ranging EPC portfolio includes projects in
energy, chemicals and petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, social
infrastructure, and industrial facilities.
Chiyoda plans to use the Aconex Online Collaboration Platform across
multiple divisions of its business to manage project-related
information and processes. With Aconex, Chiyoda and its project
partners around the world will be able to instantly access,
distribute, track, and archive their documents, drawings, models, and
correspondence -- at any time and from any location -- through a
secure, neutral, centralized platform. Chiyoda plans to offer its
users access to the platform on mobile devices such as smartphones
and tablets in addition to laptop and desktop systems.
Mr. Ichiro Ota, deputy general manager of the IT Management Unit at
Chiyoda, said: "Our company has been continuously enhancing our
project control systems and technologies. After extensive evaluation
of the market, we decided to implement the Aconex Online
Collaboration Platform for a large segment of our portfolio. We
believe that the system will improve productivity with its user
friendliness and support best practices in collaboration."
Since its founding in 1948, Chiyoda has delivered engineering
projects in more than 40 countries. Its services include project and
program management, feasibility studies, FEED (front-end engineering
and design), engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning,
operations and maintenance, and asset management.
Andy Lake, general manager of Asia at Aconex, said: "Chiyoda is one
of the world's leading EPC firms, with an unrelenting focus on
quality and innovation, and we are pleased to service its business.
Over the past year, we've seen increased uptake of our platform for
domestic projects in Japan. We expect this trend to continue as more
firms experience the benefits of online collaboration compared to
their in-house document management and email systems."
