Union Square: Workflow is everywhere (mobile and extranet too)

Union Square is now embracing the AEC ‘extranet’ world it once avoided, and is going mobile with its workflow. Today’s 12th Union Square user group conference at the Royal College of General Practitioners in London saw the launch of the Nottingham, UK-based software vendor’s contract administration module, plus announcements about forthcoming mobile and ‘extranet’ functionality. In its …

NBS Contracts survey mute on contract tools

Opportunity missed, I think, sums up my view of the findings from the the NBS National Construction Contracts and Law Survey 2012, at least so far as construction collaboration technologies are concerned. I was hoping that, following recent years’ growth in the use of web-based platforms to support project team communications – and contract administration …

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. And yet we often work with applications that add to our email burden, showering us with numerous notifications and demanding rapid responses. I have blogged several times …

BIW talks contract administration over breakfast

Yesterday, I attended a breakfast briefing at London’s Building Centre organised by BIW Technologies. The Woking, UK-based construction collaboration technology vendor has been holding a series of early morning meetings to tell existing and prospective customers about its NEC3 contract management capabilities (echoing the efforts of its rival NEC Licensed Content Provider, 4Projects, in August). …

Sypro updates NEC3 interface

UK construction contract management software specialist Sypro Management has released a new version of its web-based platform for managing NEC3 processes. This gives users an “at a glance” dashboard view of key metrics relating to their work on a project. Previously, Sypro presented NEC contract data in a series of separate windows, but key data …

Ennova and Envision

Earlier this month, Hugh Hofmeister, director of construction technology and services at Brisbane, Australia-based technology start-up Ennova contacted me to talk about Envision, its Software-as-a-Service construction management tool. He told me that a launch customer, Australian engineering and infrastructure contractor Downer EDi, had been using the product for the past year, and Ennova was now launching …

NEC in the spotlight on Monday

At the generous invitation of Sypro, I will be attending Monday’s annual NEC User Group conference, held at the Institution of Civil Engineers in London. It promises to be an interesting event, with a keynote from the UK government’s chief construction advisor Paul Morrell, plus presentations and case studies on use of the NEC contract …

ICT4Construction: a post mortem

Rant alert! As regular readers may know, I was (I think, constructively) critical of the first ICT4Construction event last October, and as a result of my feedback organiser Recep Saffet asked if I would chair the next edition, on knowledge and document management. After some deliberation, I agreed, and also helped publicise the event through …

Not just NEC3, JCT needs to be managed too

The web-based RICS Contract Administrator automates and speeds up the production of JCT contract forms, but why do some of its users still print them out and send them? Amid the recent burst of marketing activity by UK construction SaaS vendors promoting their NEC management capabilities (see links to previous posts below), it is easy …

Another NEC3 SaaS application: CMToolkit

Online management of NEC contract processes features prominently on the agenda of next month’s document and knowledge management conference in London (which I am chairing – post), with SaaS vendors 4Projects and Sypro both listed as talking about contract administration. The event is timely too, insofar as it comes just weeks after NEC publisher Thomas …
