Asite heads list of collaboration vendors vying for Construction Computing Awards 2012

The shortlists for the 2012 Construction Computing Awards have been published, and reveal many familiar names vying for “Hammers” across equally familiar ranges of sometimes overlapping categories. Voting for the awards is now open (and will remain open until 8 November), the winners will be announced at a London event on 22 November, and London-based SaaS vendor Asite features in no fewer than ten of the 25 shortlists.

As usual, my eyes are drawn to the Document and Content Management Product and the Collaboration Product of the Year categories (as far as I can see, the first includes a finance management product or two, while the latter is mainly focused on ‘extranet’-type platforms). The first, ten-strong list features:

In the Collaboration category, the nine contenders are:
  • 4Projects – 4Projects extranet (2011 winner)
  • Aconex – Online Collaboration
  • Asite – CBIM
  • Autodesk – Buzzsaw
  • Bentley Systems – Projectwise V8i SELECT Series 4
  • Conject – Project Control (formerly BIW Technologies)*
  • Dome Consulting – Dome Connect
  • Union Square Software – Workspace
  • Unit4 Business Software – Business Collaborator

As you can see, six businesses get two chances to win by featuring in both categories, and the majority of both lists – seven and six respectively – were on the same lists in 2011. Browsing the other categories, I see that:

  • if I’ve counted correctly, Asite is shortlisted for ten awards: “Superbrand of 2012”, “one to watch” company, e-commerce product of the year, BIM product (Asite cBIM), mobile product, project planning product, product of the year, IT project of the year (100+ employee category), company of the year, and Editor’s Choice.
  • 4Projects has also been shortlisted for product of the year, and company of the year
  • Aconex is on the list for e-commerce product of the year
  • MPS Docia is again shortlisted in the “one to watch” product category.
  • Sypro is in the project planning product category (is NEC contract change management project planning?) and is a sponsor of the event – along with Causeway, MPS, RedSky IT, NBS and Nemetschek.

* Conject formally completed its UK name-change from BIW Technologies Ltd at the start of September 2012 when the UK-registered company rebranded to conject Ltd.

[Disclosure: I worked for BIW from 2000 to 2009, and have since undertaken occasional consultancy projects for the company; I have also undertaken projects for 4Projects, Asite, Sypro and Unit4.]
