Union Square grows revenues 12% to pass £5m milestone

During the early 2000s, Nottingham, UK-based Union Square Software was seen by some vendors as a rival in the UK construction collaboration technology (or “project extranet”) market. However, its focus was mainly on knowledge management and internal collaboration capabilities, with its Workspace platform widely deployed as an internally-hosted intranet. As a result, I have tended to …

If you really, really don’t want SaaS …

While I am a champion of Software-as-a-Service and I spend a lot of my time looking at SaaS-based solutions for construction collaboration, I appreciate there will always be people for whom keeping things within the company IT infrastructure, or paying once up-front rather than by pay-as-you-go subscription, is preferable. For such people in the architecture, …

Simple AEC collaboration, plus administration?

Two emails arrived overnight: one from a generic collaboration provider and one from a small construction micro-business looking for a low-cost SaaS-based project delivery solution that could be used to manage numerous small domestic projects and support all the back-office, contact management, time-sheet and project accounting needs of the business. As I read this second …

After attending and live-blogging from the first of Recep Saffet’s series of ICT4Construction conferences last month (post), he has invited me to be one of the speakers at his next event, on document and knowledge management technology, at Methodist Central Hall, Westminster, London on 25 March 2011 (just over a month later than previously noted). …

Union Square adds project accounting option to Workspace

Union Square Software and its Workspace product haven’t featured very often in this blog, partly because my main focus is on Software-as-a-Service applications for the construction sector, and Workspace tends to be hosted in its customers’ premises, with extranet-type functionality available as an option alongside its core intranet and email management capabilities. However, it’s worth …
