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 …

Clippings adds company profiles and ‘collaboration’

Two months ago, on my construction PR and marketing blog, I wrote about Clippings.com, a Pinterest-style architectural and interior design scrapbook service (see post). An email today tells me this AEC-oriented social media service (from the same people behind OpenBuildings – post) has diversified to offer a company profiles service and “collaboration”. Clippings will allow …

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 As noted on 22 March, the old BIW Technologies company name and associated branding is being superseded by group-wide use of the conject name to cover its SaaS project control and related collaborative solutions across all geographic markets (with the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 …

ExtranetEvolution.com: the 2011 numbers

In April 2011, I migrated the ExtranetEvolution blog from TypePad to a hosted version of WordPress (post), and I have just been reviewing annual statistics for the site for the first time in two years (in fact, since my 2009 review). The year to 31 December 2011 was by some measures the best yet, delivering 59,416 …

ProjectCentre.net and its “anti-email” approach

Some people love email, others hate it; most us, I suspect, are somewhere in the middle, perhaps wearily accepting its necessity, but wishing they got less of it. And yet we often work with applications that add to our email burden, showering us with numerous notifications and demanding rapid responses. I have blogged several times …
