A role for resellers?

Some construction businesses already function effectively as value-added resellers of SaaS-based collaboration tools, filling a gap left open by traditional software VARs. I have discussed routes to market for SaaS construction collaboration vendors a few times – for example, last September, I contrasted Woobius‘s aspirations to sell direct via the web with vendors who have …

Asite keeps its community updated

As a web 2.0 enthusiast, it’s good to see UK construction technology vendor Asite using its community forum to talk to users about its plans, and Tweeting about them (see post).

Three months later, I had a quick look to see how the Asite community has been developing…. Blog posts have been a bit slow in coming. Three in June, one in July, none in August and one …

Just before I went on holiday (Menorca, very nice), I had lunch in London with Sean Kaye and Michael Baker, respectively CEO and General Manager, Technology of Australia-based construction collaboration vendor Incite.
