Lachmi Khemlani’s AECbytes provides a thoughtful review of a new cloud-based document management application for construction from US reprographic business ARC Document Solutions, called Skysite. Reprographic resistance Over the years, a number of reprographic houses and printing/plotting hardware providers have sought to cushion themselves from the impact of the shift from paper-based documentation to electronic …

Take care with those AEC IT surveys

On my PR blog, I’ve just been ranting about poorly executed market research surveys, perhaps ill-targeted, resulting in unrepresentative samples, and maybe asking leading or ambiguous questions. Unfortunately, the outcome of some research can be news releases, reports and white papers that are tailored to support a company’s public relations rather than to genuinely inform …

Autodesk launches BIMaaS

Autodesk enables web browser access to its main design tools on a pay-as-you-go basis OK, Autodesk don’t call it BIMaaS, but its announcement that its main design tools including Autodesk Revit are now accessible via a web browser amounts to the same: “For the first time ever, customers can access full-fledged 3D design … work in a browser …

Adobe Acrobat XI – from a construction collaboration viewpoint

I have had a love-hate relationship with the portable document format (PDF) over the years. For a long time, while appreciating its growing ubiquity for many office-based purposes, I still found it less then perfect when we were talking about sharing and, more importantly, collaborating upon documents in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) sector. …

HP SaaS drawing storage set to expand (and integrate?)

Reprographic hardware corporation HP launched its SaaS-based cloud storage service, ePrint & Share nearly two years ago (post), and has continued to market itself to UK users ever since (I wrote about its Android app launch in May 2012).

HP ePrint & Share now on Android

Since attending the Copenhagen launch of HP’s ePrint & Share service in October 2010, I have watched developments with interest, although I have sometimes been under-whelmed by the pace of change (post). The company enabled slightly wider sharing capabilities through Autodesk’s AutoCAD WS tablet/smartphone app in March this year, and the latest news from Washington is of …

HP expands ePrint & Share capabilities … a bit

HP has expanded the printing options available to users of its ePrint & Share service. I wrote about its launch 18 months ago, and its June 2011 strategy update, and, in between, I also wrote about Autodesk’s AutoCAD WS tablet/smartphone app. So it was interesting to see that the latest HP announcement includes an extension …

HP ePrint and Share – as you were….

I travelled to Hewlett Packard‘s UK HQ in Bracknell, Berkshire today for an update on its strategy concerning the architecture, engineering and construction sector. My previous interactions with the company included the 2010 launch of its ePrint & Share service supporting large format printers (see post) and I was hoping to hear about some significant …
