A mobile Site Diary – at a price!

Script&Go

Script and Go’s Site Diary complements a mobile-first construction project management application but the suite is not competitively priced compared to others. Since the 2007 advent of smartphones and the later launch of tablet products, the number of mobile applications designed for construction has grown and grown. I have seen numerous apps for snagging / punchlists …

G-Cloud 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. …

It’s been an interesting couple of months for the Melbourne, Australia-based SaaS construction collaboration vendor Aconex. At the end of January, the company provided a half-year trading update and 2017 financial year forecast; there were changes to the executive team, …

Surrey, UK-based Cubic Interactive markets its Rapport3 SaaS platform to professional AEC practices – could it connect to collaboration platforms too?

Newforma gets connected

Jim Forester (Newforma)

Silos (both company and IT) have long inhibited collaboration in construction. Newforma’s ‘Connector’ strategy seeks to break them down. I recently wrote (16 August: Newforma now playing cloud catch-up?) about Newforma’s Cloud Services initiative, which has seen the vendor expand its extranet-type capabilities, complementing its original core on-premise, behind-the-firewall application. I spoke last Thursday to Newforma CEO …
