Aconex UK jumps forward

The UK operation of Australia-based online construction collaboration technology vendor Aconex tended to lag behind its home-grown competitors, but in the past couple of years it appears the London office has made a great leap forward. The latest published results (up to 30 June 2008) show it dramatically increased its turnover and reported a healthy profit, vaulting it ahead of some of its longer-established local rivals.

Before the current recession really took hold, in the 12 months to June 2008, Aconex (UK) Ltd reported revenues of £1.909m, over three times the £0.552m it achieved the previous year (see Aconex (UK) Ltd – 2007 update). Simultaneously, a slight loss was replaced by a healthy pre-tax profit of £0.732m.

The UK business has also been expanding operations in eastern Europe and north Africa, establishing collaboration subsidiaries in Romania (Aconex Romania) and in Algeria (Aconex Maghreb); when I met Aconex operations director Paul Perrett recently he confirmed the success of their ventures into eastern Europe and into north African states.

    Paul,
    Last year was certainly the year that Aconex in the UK gained scale, as your updated graph shows: http://www.extranetevolution.com/extranet_evolution/2009/09/sword-ctspace-in-recovery-mode.html.
    It’s probably also worth putting the UK performance in the context of a global Aconex business that invoiced A$41.6m (GBP22.25m at average exchange rates).
