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 disappears

According to Idox group company McLaren Software, “the merger with CTSpace is now complete.” As described in November 2011, following the business’s acquisition from Sword (post), the CTSpace name was set to disappear, and now – sure enough – if you point your browser at the old domain you are redirected to McLaren’s home page, and its …

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 …

CTSpace talks about FusionLive

Last week I travelled to Brentford and the London offices of Sword CTSpace to learn more about the company’s FusionLive platform. After blogging about the product’s launch last month, I had been invited by business unit director John Pomeroy to meet some of the FusionLive team (including George Britton, Andre Gunter and Mathieu Pollet) and …

Sword CTSpace in recovery mode?

After looking at BuildOnline (UK) Ltd’s 2007 performance recently (see BuildOnline’s UK downward drift), I have been researching the recent performance of the whole Sword CTSpace group (in effect, the combined BuildOnline/Citadon operation acquired by Sword group in December 2007). Poring through the 2008 Annual and Financial Report (pdf) of the Sword Group, I found …

BuildOnline’s UK downward drift

Partly out of historical interest, I continue to monitor the company reporting of BuildOnline, a construction collaboration technology vendor which is now part of the French-owned Sword Group, today trading as Sword CTSpace and offering a portfolio of products from former offerings BuildOnline, Citadon and, more recently, Cimage. BuildOnline (UK) Ltd’s Annual Report and Accounts …

Koenig leaves Sword CTSpace

Howard Koenig has now officially left Sword CTSpace to return to the workforce management software sphere, joining Aruspex, specialists in strategic workforce planning, as CEO (CEN story; word of his departure did, however, creep out prematurely in February). He was head of North American operations for Sword. In the early 2000s, Howard was CEO of …

Sword subsidiaries Cimage and CTSpace to merge

Just over 15 months ago, following the acquisition of CTSpace by the Sword Group, I briefly mentioned existing Sword subsidiary and UK-based EDMS vendor Cimage (see CTSpace put to the Sword). Last month, Sword announced that Cimage and CTSpace would become a merged entity, Sword CTSpace. MD of Sword CTSpace and operations director for Sword …

BuildOnline UK revises past performance

New figures available from the UK regulator, Companies House, show that BuildOnline UK, the UK-based construction collaboration vendor that is now part of CTSpace, waived a substantial debt prior to its 2006 merger with Citadon. It appears BuildOnline also substantially overstated its revenues for four years. However, the business was still operating at a loss …

CTSpace people news

The Sword Group rather dropped off my radar recently, so I’ve been catching up with some developments relating to executives involved with their CTSpace subsidiary (formerly BuildOnline in the UK), a vendor of construction collaboration technologies. The most note-worthy change has been the appointment last month of former Citadon and CTSpace CEO Howard Koenig to …
