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 …

In December 2013, I reported that Viewpoint’s UK subsidiary 4Projects had been accepted as a supplier for the UK government’s G-Cloud programme. Today I learned (news release) that London, UK-based Asite has also joined the G-Cloud gang. Asite CEO Tony Ryan said: “Our appointment to the G-Cloud framework builds on our long-standing relationships providing project …

Valuing the UK SaaS construction collaboration market

I was recently asked what proportion of the UK market used a construction collaboration system from a particular vendor, and this led on to a conversation about the overall value of the UK market for SaaS collaboration. It depends… Calculating this is fraught with difficulties: First, some of the smaller vendors do not publish full …

ConjectMI – mobile inspections – launched

OPR6screenshot1

“The UK’s first fully integrated enterprise-level solution for defects and inspection processes” Or maybe not. On 1 May 2014, I attended a London breakfast briefing about Conject‘s new mobile defects management and inspection toolset, then somewhat cryptically branded “OPR6″. I have just received a news release from the Woking office of the Anglo-German SaaS construction software …

4Projects: the future is cloud-based everything

4Projects by Viewpoint - blue

Now dubbed 4Projects by Viewpoint, the collaboration solution is spearheading wider adoption of SaaS across the Viewpoint portfolio. I attended most of the second day of the 4Projects user conference in Newcastle yesterday (Thursday), hoping to hear more about the parent company Viewpoint Construction Software’s plans for its locally-based UK Software-as-a-Service construction collaboration vendor subsidiary. I wasn’t …

Munich-based SaaS construction collaboration vendor Think Project! has announced the forthcoming release of a new update to its web-based platform.

NexTenders targeting UK construction

NexTenders logo

India-based NexTenders is targeting the UK architecture, engineering and construction market with its e-tendering and e-procurement applications. I have written about e-tendering in the construction industry several times since the mid-2000s when several of the SaaS construction collaboration technology vendors (eg: 4Projects, Asite, Conject, Sarcophagus) all launched online tendering services which were integrated with their core …
