The 19 boroughs that make up the City of Montreal are turning to construction project management platform Aïdi to stickhandle roughly $2 billion in annual spending on infrastructure, construction, asset maintenance and technology projects.

The city signed a seven-year deal with Aïdi, according to software firm Osedea, which developed the project management tool. The Montreal-based tech firm said the agreement will help support Montreal’s smart city plans, aimed at modernizing its infrastructure and business practices to take advantage of new digital tools and processes.

Designed for both public and private owners, Aïdi is built to centralize management of key project information, such as budgets and deadlines, simplifying oversight of complex jobs, or a series of projects. The company said the tool also helps improve collaboration between different project stakeholders.

Along with Montreal, Aïdi is also in use by, among others, the City of Longueuil and the Société québécoise des infrastructures. In all, Aïdi says it helps manage roughly 4,500 construction projects valued at $13 billion.
