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 …

Docia Deficiency List on Droid

During 2011, I enjoyed occasional contacts with Mads Bording, CEO of Denmark-based SaaS construction collaboration technology vendor Docia (aka ‘Byggeweb’ in the Nordic region), and we finally got to meet, very briefly, at November’s Construction Computing Awards dinner in London (post). The company has been following up with its promised mobile functionality (see May 2011 …

The first agenda-setting article was by …

Collabor8online upd8s

I talked recently with Colin Barnes, CEO of Collabor8online, a provider of low-cost construction collaboration technology that I first wrote about 18 months ago (post), and just over a year since I last spoke to him (post). The conversation was prompted by some tweets about the business’s new website and about a new version of …

Ennova and Envision

Earlier this month, Hugh Hofmeister, director of construction technology and services at Brisbane, Australia-based technology start-up Ennova contacted me to talk about Envision, its Software-as-a-Service construction management tool. He told me that a launch customer, Australian engineering and infrastructure contractor Downer EDi, had been using the product for the past year, and Ennova was now launching …

Unlike 4Projects which last month seemingly suspended its blog and Twitter presence, Australia-based SaaS construction collaboration technology vendor Aconex looks to be about to launch a more committed Web 2.0 presence. It has created a new blog site, Blog Central, as: “a single spot for sharing the latest news on Aconex technology, products, customers, and …

Online collaboration for marketing and sales

Enhancing customer service is one area where many AEC firms could do better, and web-based tools can help support marketing and sales activities. Show Document and VeriShow I wrote about the SaaS generic design review application Show Document about 18 months ago. I didn’t devote much time to it from a construction perspective as it …

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. The event is timely too, insofar as it comes just weeks after NEC publisher Thomas …

Immersive design collaboration, with IdentityMine

I have returned from time to time to the perceived shortcomings of online design collaboration insofar as some architects and other designers prefer the intuitive, paper-based processes of marking-up, commenting and sketching on design drawings by hand. Such ‘collaboration’ they say is less easy when they are faced by conventional computer interfaces as opposed to, …
