A digital platform has been launched by Cemex which aims to enable users to connect with different entities in the industry, accelerate their evolution and promote new business models, while allowing the possibility of reducing costs and accelerating time for the development of new digital capabilities for each of its customers.

The Mexican-based materials producer has created Cemex Go Developer Center, which it said would facilitate the connectivity of Cemex processes with customers through digital platforms and application programming interfaces (APIs).

It said the platform would also enable the direct management of orders for materials or services, the development of alliances with commercial partners, and the use of public information from Cemex that allowed other companies to integrate their digital offers.

In addition, subscribers will have real-time access to information about what is happening with their products and services, as well as the ability to carry out administrative processes at any time, such as ordering invoices, registering new locations for construction projects, and requesting quotes, among others.

Cemex CEO Fernando A González said, “Go Developer Center is the natural next step in the successful advancement of our digital platform, after reaching more than 30,000 clients in all of the countries in which we operate.

“Digital ecosystems are changing the traditional parameters that companies use to compete, and this new stage of Cemex Go will enable us to maintain our leadership of the digital transformation of the global construction materials industry.”

Cemex said its Go Developer Center was designed to build digital solutions for each of its clients’ businesses through the use of public and private APIs, and that it would become effective from this month.

Cemex Go is a Cemex R&D (research and development), Innovation & Business Development project developed by its global R&D collaboration network, headed by Cemex Research Centers, based in Switzerland.
