Unit4 combining collaboration, ERP and BIM in the cloud

The 2012 Unit4 customer conference this week at Birmingham’s International Convention Centre incorporated the annual user event for users of Unit4 Collaboration (formerly Business Collaborator), and there were some significant announcements both about the structure of that business and about the future roadmap for its collaboration platform.

Unit4 Collaboration profits up 41% in 2010

Collaboration vendors turnover (UK)

The somewhat cautious outlook expressed by SaaS construction collaboration technology provider Unit4 Collaboration Software a year ago appears to have been only partly justified. While it has yet to return to the £3m-plus turnover it enjoyed in the pre-financial crisis days of 2008, revenues for the year to 31 December 2010 were up 5% and …

New BIM battleground emerging

When a construction IT conference at the ICE sells out three months beforehand after just three weeks, it’s clear there is a lot of interest in the subject.

The new ‘extranet’ battleground

In the past couple of months, there has been a sudden explosion in the number of construction collaboration vendors offering process management solutions. On 21 August, Aconex announced “a major upgrade to its Workflows module, which supports advanced document management in large or complex project environments”.

Business Collaborator grows 20% in 2007

After the February 2008 takeover of Coda plc by by Unit 4 Agresso NV (post), it was announced that Coda would no longer be announcing its 2007 annual results last month, and I expected a delay until we could see how UK construction collaboration technology subsidiary Business Collaborator had fared in 2007. However, presumably still working to …
