Bentley targeting SMEs with ProjectWise Essentials

Bentley CONNECT Edition

Bentley’s SaaS-based ProjectWise Essentials, “a cloud-based, instant-on integration environment,” potentially links more firms to Bentley’s ecosystem. Last week’s Bentley Systems Year In Infrastructure conference in London saw several major announcements by Greg Bentley and his team, including a tighter integration with Trimble products for construction delivery. While there is clearly a developing relationship with Trimble, …

Now Bentley CONNECTs with Trimble

Bentley and Trimble collaborating over construction modelling, while Bentley ProjectWise CONNECT makes Bentley collaboration even more widely available. On Friday afternoon, I blogged about Trimble’s new entry into the cloud-based BIM collaboration market, and it appears that one thing Trimble didn’t mention ahead of its biannual user conference in Las Vegas this week was an increasingly close …

Trimble Connect offers cloud-based collaboration

The Common Data Environment market just got busier: acquisitive Trimble has wasted no time in launching its cloud-based collaboration platform, Trimble Connect. Some seven weeks after acquiring Gehry Tchnologies, including its GTeam platform, and promising to add it to a DBO software solutions platform (post), US construction technology giant Trimble has launched Trimble Connect, based on GTeam, providing a cloud-based …

2014 promises to be a busy year for Conject. It has acquired a mobile business, and has SaaS BIM and FM tools in the pipeline. Conject CFO Cesar Flores no longer describes the SaaS company as a German or UK business: “We are a European technology business, focused on the plan, build operate sector,” he …

Trimble Buildings pushes SaaS, BIM and whole lifecycle approach

In late 2006, Trimble acquired Meridian Systems, a US-based provider of project management and document collaboration solutions (post), as part of a strategy of connecting construction sites through tighter integration of construction process information. For Trimble, that deal meant its growing portfolio of construction solutions had been expanded to include Meridian’s infrastructure lifecycle management platform …

SketchUp acquisition extends Trimble’s BIM reach

Discussion about building information modelling software has tended to focus on designers’ needs, but the more I have thought about the announcement of Trimble’s acquisition of Google’s SketchUp last week, the more I see it as boosting its BIM capabilities from a contractor and a manufacturer or supplier’s point of view.

Trimble acquires SketchUp from Google

My mind is still a bit boggled with today’s news that US-based IT giant Trimble is acquiring SketchUp from the search giant Google (normally, we hear lots of stories about the latter buying businesses – it’s less common for us to read about it disposing of technologies). This moves the simple-to-use modelling software to the …
