Personnel changes, and an iPhone app, at Sword CTSpace

When I wrote about the forthcoming ICT4Construction conference (taking place in central London next Thursday, 28 November), I mentioned John Pomeroy was speaking on behalf of construction collaboration technology vendor Sword CTSpace.

Not strictly a collaboration solution, more an expertise-oriented social network, start-up Senubo is set to launch in early 2011. Yesterday I attended a half-day workshop organised by the Construction Productivity Network focused on how to get the UK construction industry to deliver “more for less” – a topical ambition given that tomorrow the government is …

I recently talked to Building magazine’s Stephen Kennett about use of mobile devices such as Apple’s iPad in the construction industry and providing some pointers on who else he might talk to.

Asite’s Appbuilder and Platform-as-a-Service

UK-based construction collaboration software developer Asite is looking to emulate Salesforce‘s Force.com Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering by creating a platform to host construction-related applications built using its Appbuilder development framework. This is the latest development in the competitive world of construction collaboration technology, but is likely to be quickly emulated by Asite’s key rivals. Background Ten …

The first solution is an iPhone app called Foreman’s Mate, aimed at improving safety and increasing productivity, and All …
