BIW acquired by Conject

BIW, the UK market leader in SaaS construction collaboration, has been acquired by German FM software specialist Conject in a VC-backed deal, creating two complementary sister companies under a joint board. In a landmark deal between two of Europe’s leading vendors of built environment-related Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), UK-based construction collaboration technology provider BIW Technologies* has been …

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 …

CTSpace talks about FusionLive

Last week I travelled to Brentford and the London offices of Sword CTSpace to learn more about the company’s FusionLive platform. After blogging about the product’s launch last month, I had been invited by business unit director John Pomeroy to meet some of the FusionLive team (including George Britton, Andre Gunter and Mathieu Pollet) and …

The conject interview

Having recently received a comment from Chris Brandt, CTO at conject, I thought it was high time that I took a more detailed look at this construction and real estate collaboration vendor. Based in Munich, Germany, but with operations across most of Europe, conject has gradually been expanding its international reach beyond Europe. It has …

BuildOnline’s UK downward drift

Partly out of historical interest, I continue to monitor the company reporting of BuildOnline, a construction collaboration technology vendor which is now part of the French-owned Sword Group, today trading as Sword CTSpace and offering a portfolio of products from former offerings BuildOnline, Citadon and, more recently, Cimage. BuildOnline (UK) Ltd’s Annual Report and Accounts …

Newsletter gives CTSpace update

I have just been forwarded a copy of the latest e-newsletter from construction collaboration vendor CTSpace (a business with an interesting past – see related posts below). The email features an editorial from Gert-Jan de Kieviet, the company’s managing director of its EMEA operation. In it he writes glowingly about the aftermath of last year’s …

Incite – update

Two months ago (INCITE = ThinkProject!), I wrote about Australia-based construction collaboration provider Nexus Point and the Incite product. I have just received a helpful email from Sean Kaye, Nexus Point’s managing director, updating me on a few details. First of all, Nexus Point Solutions never had an agreement of any sort with Baulogis; the minority …

CTSpace – minor update

Further to my February post, the CTSpace website has still not been updated, although there is a good-looking link page from the parent group Sword site, listing CTSpace locations in the US, UK, France, Germany and Austria. In the meantime, I read here that former CTSpace (and before that Constructware) executive Gary Greenberger has left the business and joined …

BuildOnline revisited

In the absence of any updates regarding Sword Group and its recently-acquired construction collaboration technology business still branded as CTSpace (formerly known as BuildOnline and Citadon, formerly known as Cephren (formerly known as BlueLineOnline and E-bricks) and Bidcom, which also incorporated Cubus – and that’s just the short version!) or even a new website (see post), …
