Mobile surveying hotting up

GoReport

Keep taking the tablets… more and more construction-oriented apps are being delivered on mobile devices. Last month, I wrote about SaaS specialist KyKloud and how it had extended beyond its initial focus on asset management to provide some powerful iPad-based mobile survey functionality. It’s not the only vendor looking at this market. In the past …

Reflections on the 4Projects acquisition

Having had a couple of days to research and reflect on yesterdays’s announcement of Viewpoint’s acquisition of 4Projects (post) and to discuss it with industry friends, I thought I’d try to sum up a few strands. Deal background While Viewpoint CEO Jay Haladay was somewhat coy about the the funding and terms of the deal …

COMIT #MobiBIM conference pushes cloud-based data and tools

I attended COMIT‘s latest conference, on BIM and Mobility, at London’s Building Centre on Thursday, and tweeted a lot of the event highlights (my ‘co-tweeter’ Su Butcher helpfully created a great Storify stream where you can see the event unfold). As usual with COMIT events, the conference was a healthy mix of construction people and technology …

Bricsys, the Brussels, Belgium-based CAD software vendor that also provides a Software-as-a-Service project collaboration platform called Vondle (April 2007 post) is renaming the latter Chapoo, and incorporating some social sharing features. I heard about the name change last week during a telephone conversation with one of its executives, and the news was also broken by …

Does Social Media Belong in CAD Applications?

Via the excellent TenLinks newsletter, I found this Cadalyst article by Robert Green on social media in the CAD workplace. Robert admits he is not a big fan of social media in the workplace: I do see some value in it for CAD managers, as long as it is used judiciously. However, I foresee nothing …

From Asite to Adoddle

London-based Software-as-a-Service construction collaboration technology vendor Asite has a completely new website and has also renamed its platform Adoddle. A hand-drawn cartoon character resembling (to me) a cross between a light-bulb and a rocket is used to personify and represent the offering (previously branded simply Asite). ‘Addodle’ is shown beating the ‘chaos monster’, and, in …

Document control takes a vacation?

For a couple of my clients, I have considering the production of various infographics related to the products or services they provide – these are proving popular online as a simple way to summarise various types of data (surveys, system operations, timelines, etc), and good infographics can become quite ‘viral’ on social networks such as …

A longer look at TrackerPlus

In January, I wrote about London-based environmental consultancy SouthFacing and its TrackerPlus online Software-as-a-Service solution to help BRE-licensed BREEAM assessors manage their workload. This week, I visited the company’s Islington offices and met Ben Cartmell to find out more about the application and its potential future direction.

New conject UK website taking shape

The new conject website went live earlier today. As noted on 22 March, the old BIW Technologies company name and associated branding is being superseded by group-wide use of the conject name to cover its SaaS project control and related collaborative solutions across all geographic markets (with the “plan-build-operate” life-cycle very much to the fore). Some …
