I have been writing about web-based tendering solutions for the construction industry for around 10 years, watching what has been a slow and still somewhat gradual expansion. By 2005, my then employer, BIW Technologies (now Conject) had launched an e-tendering solution that …

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.

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”. The service, from Sydney-Australia-based Constrex, was due to be launched in late 2009, but I understand the launch of the web-based service has been delayed. I received a Twitter: “We aim …

This is the new name of what used to be a construction-oriented software-as-a-service business that I previously knew as e-constructionmanager.co.uk. The rebranding reflects the wider range of services now offered by the company, …
