Collaborate – via your printer

Hewlett-Packard has rarely featured in ExtranetEvolution.com – which is hardly surprising as HP is mainly known in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) circles as a provider of print hardware solutions, not collaborative software applications.

Corecon goes mobile too

In May 2010, I wrote about the launch of Corecon V7 in the US market. Like several other construction collaboration software vendors this year (some already launched – eg: Asite’s cMob, Unit4 – some impending – eg: CTSpace, Aconex), Corecon has just released a mobile product tailored for use on smartphones and tablet computers (see …

Asite’s Appbuilder and Platform-as-a-Service

UK-based construction collaboration software developer Asite is looking to emulate Salesforce‘s Force.com Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering by creating a platform to host construction-related applications built using its Appbuilder development framework.
