IDOX acquires CTSpace for £11.6m cash

A tweet from a former colleague alerted me to it, and it was confirmed when I looked at my TweetDeck search column: “IDOX … announces the acquisition of CTSpace for £11.6m cash.” Sword-CTSpace was a subsidiary of the France-based Sword group (acquisition in December 2007) offering a combination of both on-premise and Software-as-a-Service construction collaboration …

Former CTSpace MD now at CadacOrganice

Over the past few years, I have seen numerous employees move from one construction collaboration technology vendor to another. This ‘musical chairs’ process has been common among sales people – I’m still in contact with some individuals who have worked for three or more providers – but it also occasionally extends to directors.

Android-based Smartbuilder1 launched

Almost a year ago, I wrote about Dublin-based software developer SmartBuilder Software after managing director Peter Daly and I met up and discussed construction collaboration technologies and mobile solutions. At the time, he was developing his first iPhone application, but I later learned that he had decided not to continue developing on the Apple platform. Instead he …

Business steady at Sword CTSpace?

Monitoring the construction collaboration technology businesses formerly known as Buildonline and Citadon since the combined CTSpace operation was acquired by France-based Sword Group SA in late 2007 (post) is not easy, particularly when companies get merged with other, unrelated operations. From a close reading of various annual reports and some company feedback, I believe the …

Corecon goes mobile too

In May 2010, I wrote about the launch of Corecon V7 in the US market. Like several other construction collaboration software vendors this year (some already launched – eg: Asite’s cMob, Unit4 – some impending – eg: CTSpace, Aconex), Corecon has just released a mobile product tailored for use on smartphones and tablet computers (see …

CTSpace launches FusionLIVE – end of the road for BuildOnline and Citadon

Catching up with recent announcements in the world of construction collaboration technologies, I see that Sword CTSpace has launched a new Software-as-a-Service application, FusionLive, that looks like it will eventually replace both the BuildOnline and Citadon applications inherited when Sword acquired CTSpace in December 2007 (post). The 7 April news release quotes Gert-Jan de Kieviet, …

Asite reaches profitability

It’s taken a while, around nine years in fact, but UK construction collaboration technology vendor Asite has finally reached profitability. According to unaudited figures in a trading statement released on its website today, the London-based company had gross revenues of £2.079m in 2009 (up 10% from £1.89m in 2008), and partly by driving down operating …

Howard Koenig has now officially left Sword CTSpace to return to the workforce management software sphere, joining Aruspex, specialists in strategic workforce planning, as CEO (CEN story; word of his departure did, however, creep out prematurely in February). He was head of North American operations for Sword. In the early 2000s, Howard was CEO of …
