Simple AEC collaboration, plus administration?

Two emails arrived overnight: one from a generic collaboration provider and one from a small construction micro-business looking for a low-cost SaaS-based project delivery solution that could be used to manage numerous small domestic projects and support all the back-office, contact management, time-sheet and project accounting needs of the business. As I read this second …

Corecon TeamLink Portal creates new ‘extranet’ player – and low-cost too

It’s been a while – 15 months – since I talked about Corecon, the California-based provider of web-based construction software, and more than 18 months since it launched its flagship product Corecon V7. Until V7, Corecon had been mainly focused on business process support (estimating, contract administration, procurement, financial reporting, correspondence, scheduling, etc) rather than …

Will BIM kill the document controller?

I watched and listened to a Building Design webinar today on building information modelling (BIM). Hosted by Robert Klaschka of Studio Klaschka Architects (he and I shared a platform at a London Constructing Excellence event in May), it included a question and answer session with UK government chief construction advisor Paul Morrell, and short presentations …

The state of (construction) collaboration

I spoke at the Collaboration Cafe symposium held at London’s Building Centre on Tuesday, 30 March. I was third speaker on, following StickyWorld and Slider Studio founder Michael Kohn and Axis Design architect Rob Annable, and my brief from Michael was straightforward: to expand on the blog post, The end of the construction collaboration era?, …

Union Square adds project accounting option to Workspace

Union Square Software and its Workspace product haven’t featured very often in this blog, partly because my main focus is on Software-as-a-Service applications for the construction sector, and Workspace tends to be hosted in its customers’ premises, with extranet-type functionality available as an option alongside its core intranet and email management capabilities. However, it’s worth …

Bye-bye BT Workspace, Hello Glasscubes

Glasscubesinterface

In early 2007, I wrote about BT Workspace, a Software-as-a-Service that the UK telecoms giant was offering to small and medium-sized businesses. Built on a modified version of the Microsoft SharePoint platform by US company SMBLive, BT Worskspace offered extranet-type project workplaces at a competitive price (£7.50 per company user per month; free for micro-teams …

Whobius? Woobius

Woobius

Woobius is a new name in Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) construction collaboration, and appears (from, among other places, the company’s Scribbles blog) to be the work of three UK-based people: Make architect Bob Leung, technologist Daniel Tenner and user interface specialist Cliff Rowley. While not a construction professional, one of Daniel’s Woobius Scribbles (Document Control – how …
