ProjectDox rejects SaaS approach

I wrote briefly about US-based Informative Graphics‘ ProjectDox in July 2006. Today, thanks to Randall Newton’s AECnews.com (Informative Graphics Spins Off ProjectDox), I learn that IGC has created a subsidiary, Avolve Software, to manage ProjectDox opportunities, leaving the parent company to focus on its file visualisation products (eg: its Brava! viewer, etc).

It talks about getting rid of email clutter, and managing and controlling projects via extranet functionality, with intranet functionality also available for internal company dicussions …

Adobe ignores extranets?

An Adobe survey of 657 US-based AEC professionals undertaken by Harris Interactive (reported by AEC.Cadalyst.com) has found that, despite the advent of electronic means of exchanging project information, paper still remains the most popular form in which to review CAD information. Indeed, paper is even more popular in 2006 than it was when a similar survey was …

Dochosting Data Management

After discovering Dochosting via Contract Journal (see previous post), I have tried to find out more about the company. The Dochosting website is, to say the least, sketchy on details of the company, giving only telephone and fax numbers (not even an email address!); no postal address or contact names either. From the STD code of …
