AEC Docuflow selling Organice in Australia

Organice,  the AEC-oriented toolkit (from Netherlands-based Cadac), that helps construction organisations make better use of Microsoft SharePoint for collaboration purposes now has an Australian reseller.

Sydney-based AEC Docuflow was established last year by Nathan Harman and Steve Nelson to offer document management solutions to small to mid-size architecture, engineering and construction businesses, and uses the Organice suite of engineering document management solutions, hosted by Harman’s company Zettaserve. AEC Docuflow also offers Sharepoint-based client and employee portals and document scanning and digital signature products, still with a focus on the AEC market. No pricing information is given.

I have talked about SharePoint-based construction collaboration a few times in this blog (as well as Cadac’s offering, Sword-CTSpace has a similar offering, as do Bentley – see Projectwise StartPoint post; there was a useful review of Organice in Lachmi Khemlani’s AECbytes in February 2009). However, some five years since I first looked at the potential of the system (post), I have yet to see a SharePoint implementation that can match the versatility and accessibility of a web-native Software-as-a-Service construction collaboration platform, particularly if the vendors license it per-project rather than opting for per-seat licensing which can constrain adoption.

Update (3 May 2011): Cadac Organice has introduced a SharePoint framework for the mining industry (see TenLinks story).
