Aconex wins Leighton EPC project

Melbourne, Australia-based SaaS construction collaboration provider Aconex has announced it has been appointed by the Mumbai-based contractor Leighton Welspun to support construction projects for oil and gas pipelines off the western coast of India.

Incite imploding?

Two independent industry insiders in the increasingly competitive Australian SaaS construction collaboration technology sector have both told me that Leighton Holdings‘ subsidiary Incite continues to experience problems, 17 months after firing its senior team (post). The perception is that Incite Keystone is unreliable (with work focused on stabilising the platform and bug-fixing, not adding enhancements), …

Profiling think project!

Relatively unknown in the UK, Think Project! is one of mainland Europe’s leading SaaS construction collaboration vendors with an impressive client list. In London last Friday Thomas Bachmaier, CEO of Munich, Germany-based think project!, told me about the company, its architecture, engineering and construction collaboration platform and take-up of its Software-as-a-Service.

Keystone disappears in Incite rebrand

Almost underlining that it is just focused on its internal group customers, Australia-based SaaS construction collaboration technology provider Incite (aka Nexus Point Solutions – part of the Leighton Holdings group) has reduced its website to a single page. Incite and Nexus Point Solutions now share equal billing at the page top, and there is a selection of Leighton group business …

Just over a month after I researched, wrote and published a blog post about my view of changes at Leighton Holdings Ltd’s construction collaboration technology subsidiary Incite, the Sydney, Australia-based giant has flexed its not inconsiderable muscles and sent me a letter.

St Valentine’s Day massacre leaves Incite almost out-of-sight

Briefly one of the innovators of the SaaS construction collaboration technology market, Australia-based Incite has suffered under recent heavy-handed management by parent Leighton Holdings. A couple of years ago, I did some consultancy work for Sydney, Australia-based construction collaboration technology vendor Incite (aka Nexus Point Solutions Pty Ltd). At the time (April 2009), the two …

Thoughts on those Australian AEC software start-ups

It is apparently no coincidence that I had enough material to write three consecutive blog posts this week about Australian software businesses targeting the architecture, engineering and construction market. Sean Kaye, now back at Leighton Holdings as General Manager, Group Strategic IT after a stint as CEO of its Incite subsidiary, sent me an email …
