okitoo: real-time, mobile AEC collaboration lost in translation

Another service that I found after they followed me on Twitter is Okitoo. While it looks to be an interesting Software-as-a-Service mobile application for AEC professionals (developed by a France-based software developer Ideoserve SAS), it has been let down by poor marketing so far as the English-speaking world is concerned. The home page shows an …

See Howzee

Howzee offers a hyper-local service to manage the tenant/property management communication challenge at an individual block level. Alongside my main focus on ICT tools to help teams deliver construction projects, I have also taken an interest in how ICT tools can be used to help manage completed buildings or other assets. This includes online facilities …

BuildItLive.com targets iPad collaborators

Over the past year or so, I’ve talked several times about iPhone applications and collaboration in the architecture, engineering and construction, AEC, space. I have seen prototype stand-alone products developed purely for the iPhone (eg: Smartbuilder – post), but most tools have been developed by existing construction collaboration technology providers and extend their platforms to …

Notes on attending a Microsoft-hosted construction ICT event

COMIT logo

“Ooh, a free conference on construction ICT! And it’s at Microsoft’s London office!” – probably the reaction of more than a few people when emails dropped into their inboxes earlier this year. I attended last year’s event, having heard of the event through friends at COMIT (Construction Opportunities for Mobile IT), so I was clearly …

HP and Autodesk collaboration – ignores Autodesk’s collaboration products

After last month’s Hewlett Packard event in Copenhagen which saw the launch of its ePrint & Share ‘cloud’ service (post), I have been watching out for further announcements. The latest concerns a new video about an Autodesk plug-in for HP ePrint & Share (the plug-in was demonstrated at HP’s event). It’s a polished presentation, but …

Personnel changes, and an iPhone app, at Sword CTSpace

When I wrote about the forthcoming ICT4Construction conference (taking place in central London next Thursday, 28 November), I mentioned John Pomeroy was speaking on behalf of construction collaboration technology vendor Sword CTSpace. He isn’t any more, though, as he joined unstructured information software provider MarkLogic as vice president, Europe in August (see news release). John’s …

Senubo to launch early 2011

Not strictly a collaboration solution, more an expertise-oriented social network, start-up Senubo is set to launch in early 2011. Yesterday I attended a half-day workshop organised by the Construction Productivity Network focused on how to get the UK construction industry to deliver “more for less” – a topical ambition given that tomorrow the government is …
