From Asite to Adoddle

London-based Software-as-a-Service construction collaboration technology vendor Asite has a completely new website and has also renamed its platform Adoddle. A hand-drawn cartoon character resembling (to me) a cross between a light-bulb and a rocket is used to personify and represent the offering (previously branded simply Asite). ‘Addodle’ is shown beating the ‘chaos monster’, and, in …

Document control saves $1million

Last month (Document control takes a vacation?), I linked to an infographic produced by McLaren Software regarding the potential value of document control within a major capital project when something goes wrong (that infographic is now linked from a new McLaren blog, Document Control Unplugged, by the way – good to see another vendor start …

Darley highlights high cost of traditional tendering

A quick update. In November 2011, I wrote about UK-based Darley PCM and its SaaS online eTender application – mainly aimed at SME-level clients, construction businesses and their supply chains. CEO Emma Jeffery has been in touch to: highlight a new eTender demo page (I said prospective customers often like to see what they are buying) …

ExtranetEvolution.com: the 2011 numbers

In April 2011, I migrated the ExtranetEvolution blog from TypePad to a hosted version of WordPress (post), and I have just been reviewing annual statistics for the site for the first time in two years (in fact, since my 2009 review). The year to 31 December 2011 was by some measures the best yet, delivering 59,416 …

Is no news bad news?

There seems to be dearth of positive news among the the leading UK-based construction collaboration vendors. A glance at their website news sections would have you wondering if they are still active, still winning work or still developing new applications. Excepting Aconex‘s international news and one or two client stories from 4Projects, there is a distinct …

The conversation was prompted by some tweets about the business’s new website and about a new version of …

The updated website draws together some recent Aconex initiatives, including its Blog Central (post) and the Spring 2011 launch of its iPhone application, Aconex Mobile (post), while the site’s main navigation …
