London-based Software-as-a-Service construction collaboration technology vendor Asite has a completely new website and has also renamed its platform Adoddle. A hand-drawn cartoon character resembling (to me) a cross between a light-bulb and a rocket is used to personify and represent the offering (previously branded simply Asite). ‘Addodle’ is shown beating the ‘chaos monster’, and, in …
