CTSpace name to disappear

The latest change of ownership of CTSpace – whose software portfolio includes Software-as-a-Service and on-premise construction collaboration technologies – saw the company disposed of by Lyon, France-based Sword Group and acquired by IDOX last week (see IDOX acquires CTSpace for £11.6m cash). Some reports suggest this will mean the disappearance of the CTSpace brand as it …

Business steady at Sword CTSpace?

Monitoring the construction collaboration technology businesses formerly known as Buildonline and Citadon since the combined CTSpace operation was acquired by France-based Sword Group SA in late 2007 (post) is not easy, particularly when companies get merged with other, unrelated operations. From a close reading of various annual reports and some company feedback, I believe the …

The conject interview

Having recently received a comment from Chris Brandt, CTO at conject, I thought it was high time that I took a more detailed look at this construction and real estate collaboration vendor. Based in Munich, Germany, but with operations across most of Europe, conject has gradually been expanding its international reach beyond Europe. It has …

Sword CTSpace in recovery mode?

After looking at BuildOnline (UK) Ltd’s 2007 performance recently (see BuildOnline’s UK downward drift), I have been researching the recent performance of the whole Sword CTSpace group (in effect, the combined BuildOnline/Citadon operation acquired by Sword group in December 2007). Poring through the 2008 Annual and Financial Report (pdf) of the Sword Group, I found …

BuildOnline’s UK downward drift

Partly out of historical interest, I continue to monitor the company reporting of BuildOnline, a construction collaboration technology vendor which is now part of the French-owned Sword Group, today trading as Sword CTSpace and offering a portfolio of products from former offerings BuildOnline, Citadon and, more recently, Cimage. BuildOnline (UK) Ltd’s Annual Report and Accounts …

How boom went bust at the click of a mouse

I’ve chronicled the slide of BuildOnline in a number of blog posts over the past four years (notably Investing in a dot.com/SaaS business: a history), and the losses suffered by the early BO investors have clearly been shared by numerous other Ireland-based start-ups, as this Irish Independent article makes clear. Writer Roisin Burke suggests BO’s …

Koenig leaves Sword CTSpace

Howard Koenig has now officially left Sword CTSpace to return to the workforce management software sphere, joining Aruspex, specialists in strategic workforce planning, as CEO (CEN story; word of his departure did, however, creep out prematurely in February). He was head of North American operations for Sword. In the early 2000s, Howard was CEO of …

BuildOnline UK revises past performance

New figures available from the UK regulator, Companies House, show that BuildOnline UK, the UK-based construction collaboration vendor that is now part of CTSpace, waived a substantial debt prior to its 2006 merger with Citadon. It appears BuildOnline also substantially overstated its revenues for four years. However, the business was still operating at a loss …

CTSpace people news

The Sword Group rather dropped off my radar recently, so I’ve been catching up with some developments relating to executives involved with their CTSpace subsidiary (formerly BuildOnline in the UK), a vendor of construction collaboration technologies. The most note-worthy change has been the appointment last month of former Citadon and CTSpace CEO Howard Koenig to …
