A Google Alerts pointed me to a recently posted SlideShare presentation about project extranets from Berkshire, UK-based Kahootz. The business highlights how the architecture, engineering and construction industry has been using online collaboration for a decade or more, and urges more organisations to follow suit. However, Kahootz is not aimed expressly at the AEC sector (which, of course, has several very well established UK providers) – it is more of a generic collaboration product and, in particular, is targeting the public sector (its web-based platform has been approved by the UK government and is available via the UK Government CloudStore).
Launched in April 2012, Kahootz is a trading name/product from Inovem Ltd, whose Inclusionware product provides consultation and collaboration capabilities to central and local government, health trusts, consulting firms, corporates and representative organisations. In this sector, it appears to be competing with some of the services provided by McLaren Software’s parent Idox plc
