Bentley acquires EADOC

Bentley Systemseadoc-logoBentley - logo has acquired California, USA-based Software-as-a-Service construction collaboration technology vendor EADOC for an undisclosed sum (see announcement), adding the platform to its MANAGEservices offering.

I have covered both Bentley’s and EADOC’s collaboration offerings over recent years. In the collaboration space, Bentley has mainly been associated with its Projectwise platform, extended last year to an SME SaaS offering, Projectwise Essentials (post). EADOC, founded in 2006, while providing document collaboration, has differentiated itself by also providing project cost control functionality (post) and integration with planning and scheduling tools MS Project and Oracle Primavera P6 (post) while remaining focused on the commercial and industrial development markets.

It appears that EADOC has been acquired to extend ProjectWise’s project delivery capabilities (while also taking a collaboration competitor out of the US market). EADOC believes its users can benefit from Bentley’s mobile expertise. According to the Bentley news release:

EADOC enables construction management professionals to track construction project documentation including design clarifications, inspectors’ daily reports, special inspections, memos, action items, deficiency items, and schedules. EADOC also uniquely integrates project cost controls, including budget, funding sources, contracts, schedule of values, pay estimates, change requests, and change orders, with this project information.

And EADOC founder Eric Law says:

Eric LawAs a former member of the Bentley Developer Network, our team is extremely pleased to now be part of Bentley. Together we can take information mobility across design and construction workflows, as well as into operations, to new levels for small and large organizations alike.
