BIW, a conject company

Maybe it’s a sign of things to come or just a one-off, but I received an email from UK SaaS construction collaboration technology provider BIW Technologies this morning (about a sustainability survey) which had a slightly amended BIW logo at the top. The email had been distributed via parent company Conject’s email engine, and the …

Aconex director under scrutiny

It appears that defeat of a minority shareholder’s resolution to remove the Aconex chairman Martin Hosking at an EGM last month (post 1, post 2) hasn’t ended the discontent within the highest echelons of the Melbourne-based construction collaboration technology business. Questions have now been asked about the role of another member of the board, with …

Asite does enterprise deal with Canary Wharf Contractors

Asite seeks to differentiate its collaboration offering through its own definition of ‘pure SaaS’. According to a news release earlier this week, London-based construction collaboration vendor Asite has signed a five-year enterprise deal to provide its SaaS platform to support Canary Wharf Contractors’ projects.

Collaborate – via your printer

Hewlett-Packard has rarely featured in ExtranetEvolution.com – which is hardly surprising as HP is mainly known in architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) circles as a provider of print hardware solutions, not collaborative software applications. Indeed, I learned last week that there are now around 1.5 million HP DesignJet large format printers in use, and that …

From AsBuilt to Exquando

From time to time, I get asked about non-UK collaboration vendors operating in mainland Europe. I can talk with some knowledge about Munich-based Conject (see The conject interview) and Madrid-based Bricsnet (see The Bricsnet interview), but otherwise I generally struggle.

More on the former Bricsnet CEO embezzlement

Further to my post about the Jinian wire fraud indictment, I’ve just received an email from Cristina Niculescu, head of Bricsnet’s collaboration tool ProjectCenter in Europe, who “to avoid speculation and hear-say rumours” thought it would be useful to put Bricsnet’s position on the subject and the effects it has had on Bricsnet as a …
