As previously mentioned, the UK construction extranet vendors’ association, the NCCTP, is commissioning an independent market research agency, Benchmark Research, to undertake a survey of end-users of its members’ technologies. After attending the kick-off meeting today, I know the research is likely to take place during late Spring 2006, with the results revealed at an NCCTP conference proposed for the autumn.
While such research will be enormously useful in identifying what users percieve as the benefits of the technology, it will not give us a clearer idea of the take-up of the technologies across the UK AEC industry. Is there an industry-wide survey taking place in which the NCCTP could insert a question or two about the use of online collaboration? If you know of one, please let me know.
