CTSpace disappears

According to Idox group company McLaren Software, “the merger with CTSpace is now complete.” As described in November 2011, following the business’s acquisition from Sword (post), the CTSpace name was set to disappear, and now – sure enough – if you point your browser at the old domain you are redirected to McLaren’s home page, and its perfunctory announcement of the absorption of the old name.

The McLaren product portfolio comprises cloud-hosted and enterprise-scale on-premise engineering document management, control and collaboration solutions, listed in this order:

  • cloud-based McLaren FusionLive (FusionLive was originally developed and launched in 2010 to supersede the old BuildOnline and Citadon CW applications)
  • on-premise McLaren Enterprise (presumably the McLaren and former Cimage document management applications)
  • cloud-based McLaren Collaboration Workspace (CW)

The branding similarity of the latter with the Citadon CW product name (post), suggests the company continues to support its largely US-based customers using a platform first launched some 11 years ago, but the focus going forward seems to be on its cloud-based FusionLive offering.
