Avanti reality check for extranets (2)

Towards the end of yesterday’s CICA annual convention, I met Mervyn Richards, one of the leading figures on the Avanti project (see 22 September post). He gave me a bit of background to the somewhat negative comment (about extranets and their workflow handling capabilities) made at last month’s CE members convention. Apparently, the comment was not a generalisation, but an anecdote based on use of a particular system (certainly not BIW Information Channel). Mervyn hadn’t been able to challenge the assertion since his own first-hand experience of construction collaboration technologies was now out-of-date (however, Mervyn is now going to come down to BIW’s Woking office to see the latest version of our software).
