New IPD platform increases project velocity and reduces project risk
Feb 17, 2009-Burlingame, California. Kalexo today announced the general availability of Kalexo Teamwork, the first Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) Platform for the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industries.
Integrated project delivery is a deeply collaborative process leveraging the talents and insights of all participants in design and construction through the best collaboration technologies. "At a practical level, most firms are challenged to integrate best-of-breed tools to enable the Integrated Practice, and it is an expensive proposition," says Kalexo CEO Dr. Hannes Marais. "Kalexo's Integrated Project Delivery Platform seamlessly combines advanced task management with communication tools such as file sharing, online meetings and video chat for a complete software-as-a-service solution."
The integrated practice demands rapid collaboration cycles around project data between organizations. "Kalexo Teamwork is a fantastic way for graphical thinkers to share their ideas and issues, and instantly improves accountability and efficiency in any project. Its novel task-centric approach turns tasks into rich 'information capsules' that can be securely handed off between project members and organizations. A task typically has a small team working on it and can contain files, screen shots, movies, voice-mails, checklists, online meetings and recordings, chat logs, status reports and more," says Steve Bogart, Kalexo's VP of Business Development.
Kalexo's IPD platform has been in development for the last three years in collaboration with several well-known AEC companies. "Our clients can't imagine going back to exchanging data via e-mail & attachments, and using a myriad of un-integrated tools. A major advantage is that you replace multiple, expensive point solutions with a single product that utilizes a modern integrated approach at a lower price point," says Marais.
To introduce the product to the market, Kalexo is offering test-drives of Kalexo Teamwork on select projects and introductory per-project pricing. To learn more, visit
