In the past year, Docia has established a UK foothold independent of its MPS partner, and is now pushing its own BIM capabilities. Just over two years ago (27 May 2011), Copenhagen, Denmark-based SaaS collaboration technology vendor Docia first featured in Extranet Evolution following its tie-up with UK contract change management provider MPS Process to …

Meeting McLaren, talking SaaS and on-premise

McLaren, now incorporating CTSpace, is building a compelling offer to owner-operators and EPC contractors wanting SaaS or on-premise collaboration, and adding AEC-specific experience to the proposition. Last week I visited the City of London offices of Idox plc to meet Tim Taylor, chief marketing officer of subsidiary McLaren Software, and talk about the business’s merger with …

CTSpace name to disappear

The latest change of ownership of CTSpace – whose software portfolio includes Software-as-a-Service and on-premise construction collaboration technologies – saw the company disposed of by Lyon, France-based Sword Group and acquired by IDOX last week (see IDOX acquires CTSpace for £11.6m cash). Some reports suggest this will mean the disappearance of the CTSpace brand as it …

IDOX acquires CTSpace for £11.6m cash

A tweet from a former colleague alerted me to it, and it was confirmed when I looked at my TweetDeck search column: “IDOX … announces the acquisition of CTSpace for £11.6m cash.” Sword-CTSpace was a subsidiary of the France-based Sword group (acquisition in December 2007) offering a combination of both on-premise and Software-as-a-Service construction collaboration …

de Kieviet thinks SharePoint is the future

To paraphrase Mandy Rice-Davies, Well, he would, wouldn’t he! Following my recent blog post about his move to Netherlands-based SharePoint reseller Cadac Organice, Gert-Jan de Kieviet (right) talked to me about his move from Sword-CTSpace and his somewhat controversial view that Microsoft SharePoint is the future of construction collaboration. BuildOnline and CTSpace In the mid-2000s, …

Former CTSpace MD now at CadacOrganice

Over the past few years, I have seen numerous employees move from one construction collaboration technology vendor to another. This ‘musical chairs’ process has been common among sales people – I’m still in contact with some individuals who have worked for three or more providers – but it also occasionally extends to directors. The latest …

August collaboration: a quick PR round-up

August is an unforgiving month for PR efforts, particularly in the UK. Journalists, readers and bloggers (including me – northern Spain, very nice!) go on holiday, publications miss an edition or two, or have fewer pages, and fewer people visit websites. In case you missed them, kudos, then, to these SaaS construction collaboration technology vendors …

Is no news bad news?

There seems to be dearth of positive news among the the leading UK-based construction collaboration vendors. A glance at their website news sections would have you wondering if they are still active, still winning work or still developing new applications. Excepting Aconex‘s international news and one or two client stories from 4Projects, there is a distinct …
