EstimateOne to expand beyond Australasian e-tendering

Streamlining complex construction procurement in Australia could be platform for growth into other markets, EstimateOne’s founders believe. I have been writing about web-based tendering solutions for the construction industry for around 10 years, watching what has been a slow and still somewhat gradual expansion.

India-based NexTenders is targeting the UK architecture, engineering and construction market with its e-tendering and e-procurement applications. I have written about e-tendering in the construction industry several times since the mid-2000s when several of the SaaS construction collaboration technology vendors (eg: 4Projects, Asite, Conject, Sarcophagus) all launched online tendering services which were integrated with their core …

Could Google disrupt the construction IT market?

With a hint of Google Genie out of the bottle, could the search giant overtake the established AEC IT giants? Last month, I retweeted and bookmarked an Israeli news article suggesting Google technology could halve construction costs (a story also subsequently picked up by UK magazine Construction Manager – Is Google planning a BIM-busting app for construction?).
