On a construction project, it is not always possible to align on 1 unique common construction software (CDE). To avoid chaos, we have developed Cooperlink CONNECT. Cooperlink CONNECT interconnects software’s of the construction sector and allows to exchange data easily and securely. In this Oracle Aconex and Asite integration example, we show you how contractors using Oracle Aconex can start a validation workflow on a set of documents while the client has the possibility to confirm the plan, technical sheets, …. in its own CDE (Asite). With Cooperlink CONNECT, the process runs automatically and errors free over the two different CDE’s

A construction project requires a large number of stakeholders. Each organization has its own tools, methodologies and security policies. As each organization prefers to use their own, it is not always possible to align on 1 unique common construction software.

At the contrary, having 2 disconnected CDEs will lead to :

  • Many manual efforts to keep both CDE updated
  • Errors in the transfer and encoding of metadata
  • Delayed execution in your project

To avoid chaos, we have developed Cooperlink CONNECT. Cooperlink CONNECT interconnects software’s of the construction sector and allows to exchange data easily and securely.

Connect two CDEs together and make them interoperable

In this Oracle Aconex and Asite integration example, we show you how contractors using Oracle Aconex can start a validation workflow on a set of documents while the client has the possibility to confirm the plan, technical sheet, …. in its own CDE (Asite). With Cooperlink CONNECT, the process including 8 steps runs automatically and errors free over the two different CDE’s :

  • Step 1 -Contractor uploads new datasheet(s) on Aconex
  • Step 2 -Contractor starts document review on Aconex
  • Step 3 -Contractor approves document internally
  • Step 4 -'Approved' documents are automatically pushed to Asite, metadata are mapped and transaction integrity validated by Cooperlink Connect
  • Step 5 -Document in Aconex is updated by Cooperlink Connect
  • Step 6 -Document is available in the CDE of the client - Asite
  • Step 7 -Client approves document internally
  • Step 8 -Document status is updated and comment sheet added in Aconex by Cooperlink Connect
