Leading project management firm Confluence has signed a deal with Aconex which will see the firm make use the Aconex online information management solution.

The solution allows members of staff to view, track and distribute documents, correspondence and other files electronically. Confluence intends to use the solution to help organise the mass of documentation that flows through the company, and also to aid communication with partners.

Confluence maintains a network of offices in eighteen countries, and the company says it chose Aconex because of the expertise the IT solutions company has in supporting complex, international projects.

Aconex themselves hold forty offices worldwide, and are currently servicing projects with a combined wealth of $210 billion.

Guy Scott, Confluence Managing Director, said: "Confluence is typically involved in the early stages of a project - in the project's inception, the client brief and establishing client expectations. At this stage, there are usually many different parties involved from a variety of locations. Aconex will help bring all parties together quickly and easily. Using the system will allow us to track and monitor all of our communications and reduce the risks associated with lost or unread documents."
