Awards season is approaching and once again it’s now time to vote online in the Construction Computing Awards 2011 (the Hammers). Most of the usual suspects are up for awards in the categories relating to collaboration, along with one or two new faces.
‘Document and Content Management Product of the Year‘ is being contested by 11 firms: 4Projects, Aconex, Asite, Bentley Systems (for ProjectWise), BIW, Causeway, IFS, RedSky, Union Square, Unit4 Collaboration, and Woobius (but for its Showcase platform [post], not its collaboration platform).
Take away Causeway, IFS, Redsky, Union Square, and add Autodesk (for Buzzsaw), Cereno (nuVa Huddle) and RIB Software (iTWO), and you have a similar line-up contesting the ‘Collaboration Product of the Year‘ (this is a new category from 2010, one which I first suggested in 2006, and presumably replaces last year’s ill-advised ‘best use of social media’ category – see post).
What else is up for grabs? Well….
- 4Projects has been shortlisted for the Superbrand of 2011 (oo-er!), product of the year, and company of the year
- Aconex is also shortlisted for e-commerce product of the year and company of the year
- Asite, for example, has been busy tweeting about it also being shortlisted for “One to watch” company, BIM product (for Asite cBIM), project planning product, product of the year, company of the year, and Editor’s Choice.
- BIW, Causeway and MPS (both the latter are event sponsors) are contesting IT project of the year.
- MPS is also up for Editor’s Choice, and among the newer names shortlisted is the MPS/Docia partnership (post), shortlisted in the “one to watch” product category.
In all, 24 awards will be made, so I expect quite a few of the above names will walk away with something from the awards dinner (tables of 10 available from £1995 ex-VAT) in London on 17 November.
