What’s the next disruptive idea for collaboration?

I am indebted to a reader, Pierre-Alexandre Losson of Brussels-based Telio, who asked me a very interesting question about innovation: “In my opinion all vendors are more or less providing the same toolchain, using the same techniques. What would be in your opinion the next disruptive idea that could or should be pushed in the …

The company recently marked its 16th birthday, making it one of the longest-established names in the world of online construction collaboration technology solutions.

US AEC market ripe for collaboration vendors

From talking to several of the overseas construction collaboration technology vendors targeting the US market, a familiar theme is emerging. It appears that home-grown solutions aren’t always attractive to US-based buyers – some of whom are happy to contemplate alternative solutions from, among others, the UK’s 4Projects, Asite or BIW, or Australia’s Aconex. However, this …

A first look at EADOC

I recently did a GoToMeeting session with Eric Law of EADOC to get a clearer understanding of this US-based Software-as-a-Service construction collaboration platform. The system is mainly aimed at construction project teams operating in north America, and has been around since early 2006 (I first wrote about the business in late 2007). It was developed, …

More on BIM and IPD

Catching up with some reading over the weekend, I found this Constructech article: Integrated Project Delivery. Focused on the US market, it is a readable overview of the role that building information modelling (BIM) will play in supporting IPD, but also includes observations from users/vendors of pre-BIM information management systems (eg: Newforma, e-Builder) that facilitate …

Constructware’s future questioned

I’ve seen a ConstrucTech Newsflash and a couple of blog posts (eg: EADoc, Jeff Yoders (BIMboy) – since updated) suggesting that Autodesk may no longer be developing its Constructware Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) construction collaboration product. Writers seized on a statement by Tim Douglas, Autodesk’s industry segment manager for construction: “Autodesk, like other companies, has been evaluating …

Projectcentre.net

Earlier this year, I started looking in a little more detail at the Australian construction collaboration technology market. Aconex, being active in the UK, obviously feature regularly in my thoughts (I believe their shareholder dispute may finally yield a judgement in the next month or so); I have written about Incite (here and here); and I linked to …
