Collaboration cause

IT SPECIAL

CONSULTANT ARUP is the first big signing for Causeway Collaboration (CC) rolling out the software on to the desktop of every Arup professional worldwide, following its launch in Las Vegas last month.

Arup is a shareholder in developer Causeway Technologies, which based CC on Arup Integration, the project extranet business it bought in the summer, working with Open Text, whose Livelink is the world's most widely used team collaboration software.

'This marks a significant development from the Integration software developed by Arup over the last 18 months, ' said Arup director Mark Bostock. 'We are delighted with the functionality, which will have a significant impact on the delivery of our services.'

Causeway's tool claims to differ from other project collaborators by focusing on the management of the project process rather than document management.

With CC a typical project would begin life on a company's intranet, before moving to a hosted environment as other project partners become involved, before moving back in house for storage and archiving purposes.

'Causeway Collaboration has been specifically designed to address the challenges inherent in the highly fragmented construction industry and gives organisations the time and space to collaborate, and to share ideas and resources, ' said Causeway vice president of marketing Graham CunninghamWalker.
