Another provider blog

A comment from US construction collaboration technology provider e-Builder‘s CEO Jon Antevy on my recent post, Getting Won Over, includes a link to his own blog – with the snappy (not) title “Construction Project Management and Collaboration” – begun late last year. By my reckoning that makes five blogs from construction collaboration technology vendors (in date order): …

Broken Buildings, Busted Budgets

I wrote earlier this week about online meetings, of which one kind is the webinar.

LePatner shares his experiences and insights into what is wrong with …

EADOC

My 30 July 2007 post on e-Builder has prompted a comment regarding a relative newcomer to the US construction collaboration market: Oakland, California-based EADOC. The website is a bit sparse on detail about the company and its founders (a press release – in fact, the only press release – says entrepreneurs Eric Law and Arnout van …

Share and share alike

Jerry Laiserin ‘s latest AEC Insight column at Cadalyst usefully segments the US market for online plan rooms and what he calls project collaboration networks (PCNs) – ie: construction collaboration technologies as they are described in the UK – as in NCCTP, for example. In Share and share alike (which, in passing, rightly describes the …

e-Builder makes its “major announcement”

I wrote last month about US construction collaboration vendor e-Builder and its impending major announcement. I waited well into July to see what this would be, but nothing appeared on the e-Builder website until just over a week ago when a release finally appeared, backdated to 29 June. e-Builder announced “the launch of e-Builder Enterprise 6.0, …

e-Builder to make “major announcement”

I read that US construction collaboration vendor e-Builder is planning a major announcement later this month that will have a “resounding impact in the industry for years to come”. I am intrigued. Mind you, the last time I got interested in such a pre-announcement it was only UK vendor Asite‘s build-up to the launch of its collaborative BIM product (and I …

Managing your AEC content – part 2

Last week, I moaned (Outdated claims on document management) about an AECWeekly feature (thanks to E-builder ‘s Sergio Aranda for his supportive comment). The follow-up piece, Managing Your AEC Content Part II, has just appeared and the reason for last week’s brief mention of Bentley ProjectWise is now clear. This week’s article is built around a …

Outdated claims on document management

Sometimes you read things that are just plain wrong. Take today, for instance. I spotted a potentially interesting headline at AECcafe.com: Managing Your AEC Content – Part I, so I click on the link and, scanning the opening paragraph, see the words ‘document management’. So far, so good, but then I read the piece…. The opening …
