Bye-bye, BIW. Hello, conject

I visited the Woking office of SaaS construction collaboration technology vendor BIW Technologies recently and there was a very tangible sign (literally! – right) of an impending change. 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 …

The email had been distributed via parent company Conject’s email engine, and the …

Zerochampion blogger Phil Clark is today (Think RIP) coming to terms with publisher CMP’s decision to discontinue its sustainability conference/exhibition event, Think – the latest manifestation of which, Think 08, I attended earlier this year. As the event organiser, he lists various reasons behind the decision: Crowded market/branding Names – “we were too late to …

Workspace confusion

One consequence of BT’s launch of BT Workspace (previous post) could be the potential for some confusion in the UK construction marketplace with other products and services called Workspace.

CTSpace dissected further

Following on from yesterday’s post (CTSpace dissected), the Citadon/BuildOnline merger to form CTSpace has continued to occupy my thoughts. In today’s post, I point out that the merger marks yet another consolidation of the extranet space since the start of the 21st century, have a quick look at what the combined business is offering post-merger, discuss …
