Extranet Evolution rarely reports project wins by construction collaboration technology vendors but the scale of QA Software’s latest TeamBinder project probably justifies this exception.

Aconex boardroom coup averted

The apparent shareholder dissent at Melbourne, Australia-based construction collaboration technology vendor Aconex has been quelled it seems, at least for the time being (see Boardroom bickering back on the Aconex agenda, 18 January). Having had several conversations recently with Aconex contacts (in preparation for another blog post, forthcoming), I have learned that the EGM resolution …
