London, UK-based SaaS construction collaboration vendor Asite has been pumping out a few announcements recently.
Asite last week announced its involvement in the UK’s Crown Commercial Service’s G-Cloud 9 programme. This cross-government initiative was launched in May of 2017 as a means of enabling public sector bodies to buy cloud-based digital services directly off the shelf. The open framework is refreshed every 3 to 12 months, consistently bringing on new suppliers and services, and there are around 20,000 services on the framework.
Tony Ryan, CEO of Asite, said:
“Our appointment to the G-Cloud framework builds on our long-standing relationships, which provide project collaboration services in the cloud to the UK government. Together with our longstanding commitment to supporting the government’s Construction Strategy and in particular to the achievement of Level 2 BIM with our cBIM service, we are fully committed to the improvement of procurement in UK construction.”
A quick browse of the listing shows several other construction collaboration SaaS vendors on the G-Cloud framework including Aconex, AQL (hosting provider to eviFile – post), Basestone, Bentley Systems, Business Collaborator, NEC3 contract specialist CEMAR, Idox (parent of McLaren Software), Trimble UK, and Viewpoint.
This week, Asite has announced that listed UK housebuilder and contractor Redrow Homes has selected Asite’s SaaS platform Adoddle as its enterprise wide CDE (common data environment) solution in the UK. Redrow first adopted Adoddle’s platform in 2014 in south east England, and has now signed an enterprise agreement with Asite.
Update (29 June 2017) – The flurry of announcements continued with news of another enterprise agreement yesterday, this time involving technical services provider Imtech.
And, according to a Tweet today, the company is preparing for a July 2017 launch of clash detection in its CDE:
