What’s the best AEC collaboration platform?

What is the best platform for construction collaboration? I have been asked this question twice this week on Twitter, and the answer is usually, of course, “it depends….” Do you want an on-premise solution, or something hosted by a vendor?

As noted on 22 March, the old BIW Technologies company name and associated branding is being superseded by group-wide use of the conject name to cover its SaaS project control and related collaborative solutions across all geographic markets (with the “plan-build-operate” life-cycle very much to the fore).

As anticipated 15 months ago when Munich, Germany-based conject acquired BIW, the UK business is – like previous conject acquisitions – being rebranded as conject. The process actually …
