Go-Cam video snagging

Live-streaming video reports from site – Go-Cam looked interesting but ultimately disappointed.  Mobile apps for construction snagging (aka: punchlisting, quality control, etc) have become common, taking advantage of smartphones’ and tablets’ in-built cameras to include a photograph of the defect as part of the report. A new app takes this one stage further, and suggests …

Progress photos at risk of FoP changes?

Proposed EU changes to national Freedom of Panorama (FoP) rights could affect individuals and organisations taking photographs or videos of construction works and sharing them in commercial platforms. Freedom of Panorama (FoP) is a somewhat obscure provision in copyright law that allows people to take photographs or video of buildings and and other works in public places without …

Oumy – record your BIM model comment?

One-time Kalexo founder Hannes Marais has created a new visual communication tool for creative people, Oumy, which, if integrated into other collaboration platforms, could accelerate idea-sharing. Six years ago in February 2009, I wrote about building information modelling (BIM), integrated project delivery (IPD) and collaboration. My post was stimulated by two Cadalyst articles by Pete Zyskowski, stressing …

Remembering Kalexo. Now Flashback

Launched in 2009, Kalexo looked to change collaboration approaches, and was acquired by Autodesk. Now founder Hannes Marais has a new project… Four or five years ago, I discovered a technology start-up called Kalexo which was looking at ways to advance task management, file-sharing, online meetings and video chat online in construction (see BIM: All …

Another NEC3 SaaS application: CMToolkit

Online management of NEC contract processes features prominently on the agenda of next month’s document and knowledge management conference in London (which I am chairing – post), with SaaS vendors 4Projects and Sypro both listed as talking about contract administration.

okitoo: real-time, mobile AEC collaboration lost in translation

Another service that I found after they followed me on Twitter is Okitoo. While it looks to be an interesting Software-as-a-Service mobile application for AEC professionals (developed by a France-based software developer Ideoserve SAS), it has been let down by poor marketing so far as the English-speaking world is concerned. The home page shows an …

Rob Phillpot on Aconex, APIs and acquisitions

Following my recent posts on Aconex‘s API announcement and its 2009 financial results, I spent 40 minutes quizzing Rob Phillpot, company co-founder and General Manager, Product, about planned developments of the Aconex construction collaboration system. It was a fascinating insight into the thinking behind the world’s most widely used SaaS collaboration platform. I was particularly …

Collabor8 online

This year I have written about several low-cost, even no-cost, collaboration solutions that might be used by businesses in the architectural, engineering and construction (AEC) industry (eg: Glasscubes, e-Grou, Incite Toolbox, ShowDocument, drop.io, Clouds UK, Woobius, Colaab). Even the deepest recession that most AEC professionals can remember has not deterred people from launching new solutions. …
