Aconex’s IPO prospectus reviewed

Aconex prospectus cover

Aconex’s IPO prospectus delivers a wealth of information, but there are some omissions too. I have been browsing through the IPO Prospectus (sent to me – thanks! – by an Australian contact) published on 17 November to support SaaS construction collaboration vendor Aconex‘s on-off-on-again flotation. The exit of private equity partner Francisco Partners is significant, I think, but …

A BIM boom for SaaS collaboration vendors?

Will there be a BIM benefit for the SaaS collaboration vendors? Yes, but it will happen gradually both in the UK and internationally, and then grow bigger as more owners require ILM services.

Having seen major vendor Conject UK report 2013 turnover up 16% earlier this month, Styles & Wood’s specialist information management subsidiary iSite has also reported revenues growing. In …

RIB Software acquires Docia

Some 21 months after acquiring Australia’s ProjectCentre (post), Stuttgart, Germany-based RIB Software AG has announced it has acquired another Software-as-a-Service business: Denmark-based SaaS construction collaboration technology provider Docia (aka Byggeweb) – a company I first profiled in May 2011. I understand the deal value (including earn-out) is almost €20m, and the acquisition will potentially expand RIB’s reach across Scandinavia …

SmartBuilder and Woobius close down

Late last month I learned that Dublin, Ireland-based Android mobile construction application developer SmartBuilder was closing down. A brief message to me from founder and CEO Peter Daly explained “Despite the promise of the new app we have been unable to source additional funding.” It appears that the company’s May 2014 effort to rename and reposition itself …

EstimateOne to expand beyond Australasian e-tendering

EstimateOne

Streamlining complex construction procurement in Australia could be platform for growth into other markets, EstimateOne’s founders believe. I have been writing about web-based tendering solutions for the construction industry for around 10 years, watching what has been a slow and still somewhat gradual expansion. By 2005, my then employer, BIW Technologies (now Conject) had launched an e-tendering solution that …
