McLaren Software opens new Australian office

Over the past year, I have been monitoring McLaren Software‘s gradual expansion of its AEC interests following its November 2011 acquisition and subsequent merger of SaaS collaboration specialist CTSpace with its engineering document management business, plus a more recent acquisition of a UK-based FM software business (post). The latest phase of its international strategy sees the opening …

Newforma now embraces cloud

Newforma-logo

US-based vendor Newforma has done a U-turn on its attitude to SaaS construction collaboration. Some six years ago (June 2006), I wrote my first Extranet Evolution blog post about Newforma Project Center after reading some provocative statements about the merits of cloud-based construction collaboration solutions from Newforma executives Bob Batcheler and Ian Howell. Former mindset …

Meeting McLaren, talking SaaS and on-premise

McLaren portfolio

McLaren, now incorporating CTSpace, is building a compelling offer to owner-operators and EPC contractors wanting SaaS or on-premise collaboration, and adding AEC-specific experience to the proposition. Last week I visited the City of London offices of Idox plc to meet Tim Taylor, chief marketing officer of subsidiary McLaren Software, and talk about the business’s merger with …

CTSpace disappears

According to Idox group company McLaren Software, “the merger with CTSpace is now complete.” As described in November 2011, following the business’s acquisition from Sword (post), the CTSpace name was set to disappear, and now – sure enough – if you point your browser at the old domain you are redirected to McLaren’s home page, and its …

think project! revisited (and visited!)

Already highly configurable, think project! functionality is set to expand over the next year, with BIM and mobile access high on the agenda. When I profiled Munich-based Software-as-a-Service construction collaboration technology vendor think project! last month, I said I would be taking a closer look at the platform. In fact, I was invited out to …

Cadac Organice sounding bullish

Preliminary results released by Cadac Organice suggest the Netherlands-based vendor of Microsoft SharePoint-based solutions for engineering document management had a successful 2011. It highlights its introduction of a cloud-based solution – discussed in October 2011 with Gert-Jan de Kieviet, right, following his recruitment from Sword-CTSpace – and also mentions that David Parry, former CTO and co-founder …

Docia Deficiency List on Droid

During 2011, I enjoyed occasional contacts with Mads Bording, CEO of Denmark-based SaaS construction collaboration technology vendor Docia (aka ‘Byggeweb’ in the Nordic region), and we finally got to meet, very briefly, at November’s Construction Computing Awards dinner in London (post). The company has been following up with its promised mobile functionality (see May 2011 …

CTSpace name to disappear

The latest change of ownership of CTSpace – whose software portfolio includes Software-as-a-Service and on-premise construction collaboration technologies – saw the company disposed of by Lyon, France-based Sword Group and acquired by IDOX last week (see IDOX acquires CTSpace for £11.6m cash). Some reports suggest this will mean the disappearance of the CTSpace brand as it …
