Aconex – new website (and new AEC e-commerce venture?)

A couple of tweets over the weekend alerted me to the launch of a new website by Australia-based SaaS construction collaboration technology vendor Aconex. The updated website draws together some recent Aconex initiatives, including its Blog Central (post) and the Spring 2011 launch of its iPhone application, Aconex Mobile (post), while the site’s main navigation …

BuildItLive.com targets iPad collaborators

Over the past year or so, I’ve talked several times about iPhone applications and collaboration in the architecture, engineering and construction, AEC, space. I have seen prototype stand-alone products developed purely for the iPhone (eg: Smartbuilder – post), but most tools have been developed by existing construction collaboration technology providers and extend their platforms to …

Woobius pushing the self-service SaaS offer

From its April 2009 launch, Woobius* has been looking to differentiate itself from competitors by virtue of its simplicity (see posts 1, 2). It still believes this is the right approach (albeit less overtly) and while most of its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) construction collaboration competitors, UK and overseas, still employ conventional sales and deployment consultants, Woobius has …

Woobius simplifies pricing of “simply simple” collaboration solution

Since I first came across UK-based low cost file-sharing and collaboration vendor Woobius in April last year, I have kept tabs on their development. [Disclosure: I have also undertaken occasional paid PR consultancy projects for the company.] Their latest news (see also blog post) concerns a simplified approach to the pricing of their core collaboration …

Collabor8online: talking low-cost collaboration

I had a long telephone chat on Friday with Colin Barnes, founder of Collabor8online (see post), a little over two months since the construction collaboration solution’s UK launch. Colin explained that Collabor8online was very much targeted at the SME end of the market. “Recognising that for many businesses email is too messy and difficult to …

Clouds UK: a new name and a competitive offering

Earlier this week, I had afternoon coffee in London with Andy Newsham and Alison Day, joint chief executives of York-based Clouds UK. This is the new name of what used to be a construction-oriented software-as-a-service business that I previously knew as e-constructionmanager.co.uk. The rebranding reflects the wider range of services now offered by the company, …

A SaaS CEO’s perspective

I noted last month (see Valuing SaaS businesses) that a couple of UK construction collaboration technology providers were speaking at the SIIA OnDemand Europe conference in Amsterdam, alongside representatives from Adaptive Planning and Huddle.net. If you’ve got the stamina, you can view a 38-minute video of one of the sessions here; here’s a few points …
