In an echo of an earlier US/UK acquisition in the construction IT space, ERP vendor Deltek has acquired UK project management software vendor Union Square. Mostly, ExtranetEvolution focuses on Software-as-a-Service solutions and related applications in the architecture, engineering and construction sector.

OpenECX targeting subcontractors

Webcontractor-screengrab

OpenECX and its WebContractor application provides an end-to-end – purchase order to payment – SaaS-based process management platform. The UK construction e-commerce sector isn’t one I’ve looked at that closely, particularly when it comes to managing buyer/supplier financial transactions between construction businesses.

ERP vendor Viewpoint viewing collaboration space

While not a household name in the European construction ERP market, Viewpoint is eyeing opportunities across the Atlantic and knows a thing or two about the collaboration space. “How come you dominate your marketplace and yet I’ve never heard of you?” – This was just one of the questions I asked Viewpoint Construction Software CEO Jay …

From AsBuilt to Exquando

From time to time, I get asked about non-UK collaboration vendors operating in mainland Europe. I can talk with some knowledge about Munich-based Conject (see The conject interview) and Madrid-based Bricsnet (see The Bricsnet interview), but otherwise I generally struggle.
