ProjectCentre.net and its “anti-email” approach

Some people love email, others hate it; most us, I suspect, are somewhere in the middle, perhaps wearily accepting its necessity, but wishing they got less of it.

Vaulting your documents

Writing last week about the London launch of the RICS report on cloud computing and commercial property, I mentioned secure offsite file storage provider Vaultium, and – surely no coincidence – I have since been emailed about another UK-based “vault” vendor: BackUpVault.

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.
