Nemein produces Open Source-based project information system for construction industry

Author: JT Smith

From Henri Bergius writes: Nemein has produced Nemein.Net for
Construction, an integrated project information system for the
construction industry based on the Sun Cobalt Qube3 server appliance.

The system provides construction projects with a web-based project
information centre where project participants can exchange information
efficiently. Unlike most project information systems on the market,
Nemein.Net for Construction works on the client's own server appliance
removing the need for monthly service payments.

"The Nemein.Net for Construction on a Qube appliance is clearly more
cost-efficient than ASPed solutions for construction projects lasting
over one year," says Henri Bergius, the director of Nemein's product
development. "In addition, the client can keep the server appliance,
enabling easy access to project information even after the project has
ended. The other possibility is to transfer the solution into use at
another construction project."

Nemein.Net for Construction consist of following modules:

  • Document management
  • Project planning and scheduling
  • Electric copy orders
  • Electric construction site logs
  • Discussion forum
  • Secure, SSL-encrypted connections
  • User interface in finnish and english

The Nemein.Net solution comes pre-installed on a Sun Cobalt Qube3 Pro
server appliance. Qube3 is a browser-based, automatically maintained
server appliance. Qube3 can also manage email, web sites, name
services, application development and operate as a firewall. Support
and maintenance contracts for Cobalt Qube3 are provided by Sun
Microsystems.

The solution is delivered in cooperation with network infrastructure
expert NetFire, a member of the Future CAD group.

Nemein is the leading Nordic provider of Open Source-based solutions for Information Management and Professional Services Automation built on the freely-available Midgard application server.
