think project! achieves ISO27001 certification

As I have, over the years, noted ISO27001 certification achievements for Conject (February 2006), Cadweb (April 2007), Aconex (December 2011), and Kykloud (August 2013), among others, it seems only fair to mark a similar milestone for Munich, Germany-based SaaS construction collaboration technology provider think project!. It has just announced achievement of the information security certification, …

Virtual worlds and the built environment

Virtual worlds and the built environment (PDF) is a white paper just published by Birmingham, UK-based Daden Ltd, about whom I’ve written before (post). Having explored Second Life very superficially a couple of years ago when Be2camp was in its infancy, I have watched with interest as Dave Burden and Soulla Stylianou have developed strong …

A first look at EADOC

I recently did a GoToMeeting session with Eric Law of EADOC to get a clearer understanding of this US-based Software-as-a-Service construction collaboration platform. The system is mainly aimed at construction project teams operating in north America, and has been around since early 2006 (I first wrote about the business in late 2007). It was developed, …

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 …

Collabor8 online

This year I have written about several low-cost, even no-cost, collaboration solutions that might be used by businesses in the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industry (eg: Glasscubes, e-Grou, Incite Toolbox, ShowDocument, drop.io, Clouds UK, Woobius, Colaab). Even the deepest recession that most AEC professionals can remember has not deterred people from launching new solutions. …

From PLM and social media, to AEC design

I have been monitoring conversations about social media among some manufacturing and product lifecycle management (PLM) commentators, and a post by Desktop Engineering‘s Kenneth Wong – What PLM Can Learn from Social Media – has lingered in a browser tab for most of the past two days as I’ve re-read it and pondered it. Kenneth …

Who needs Auto-PDF?

AECcafe.com has details of a new application that automatically converts online construction data such as RFIs and submittals to downloadable PDF files, “increasing convenience and enhancing security for architects, contractors, owners and developers” (or so claims US-based software vendor Construction Communicator). The news release says the PDF file format “is particularly valuable when traveling, when …

A SaaS code of conduct?

Phil Wainewright, one of my favourite SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) bloggers, wonders whether it’s Time for a SaaS code of conduct. He mentions another recent Gmail outage, and makes the valid point that SaaS outages tend to get much more publicity than internal corporate Microsoft Exchange outages (and “Microsoft only warranties the CD the software comes on. …
