Docia boosts RIB SaaS revenues

Acquisition of Docia helped increase RIB’s 2014 earnings from its SaaS/cloud operations, and these more than doubled in the first quarter of 2015.

Some 21 months after acquiring Australia’s ProjectCentre (post), Stuttgart, Germany-based RIB Software AG has announced it has acquired another Software-as-a-Service business: Denmark-based SaaS construction collaboration technology provider Docia (aka Byggeweb) – a company I first profiled in May 2011.

I got a message from Tomas Skovgaard (@EndlessCities on Twitter) telling me about a prototype interactive 3D environment that could be used to help communicate new building designs. Copenhagen, Denmark-based company Utopian CityScape (@UCSMicro) …
