image removed by order of Leighton Holdings Ltd

Briefly one of the innovators of the SaaS construction collaboration technology market, Australia-based Incite has suffered under recent heavy-handed management by parent Leighton Holdings.

Just over six months ago, I discovered a one-page website about Tender.ly, web-based software for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) companies to conduct their tendering for suppliers and subcontractors. Originally pencilled in for late 2009 and then February 2010, the launch date slipped a bit (as with many software projects), but a server version of …

Still coming soon: tender.ly

In October last year, I chanced upon tender.ly, “web-based software, for Architecture, Engineering and Construction companies to conduct their tendering for suppliers and subcontractors”.
