Newforma's Project Information Management (PIM) Webinar Series Extended by Popular Demand

Free Webinars Explore Work Processes and Best Practices That Support Integrated Project Delivery (IPD)

MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwire - February 17, 2010) -  Newforma®, a software company addressing the project information management (PIM) needs of architecture, engineering and construction firms, today announced additional webinars in its successful "Project information management (PIM) for integrated project delivery (IPD)" webinar series. These next five sessions will explore how PIM organizes information as a pre-requisite to knowledge management, captures decisions which can get lost in the flood of information on a project, supports virtual teams without the cost and disruption of co-location, contributes to the early stages of design, and helps manage space programming. 

Newforma Chief Executive Officer Ian Howell said, "As firms strive to define new model-based design work processes for BIM and repeatable best practices for integrated project delivery, project information management software is a key enabler. Our webinar series has already explored a range of related topics, all of which are available to view as recordings at the Newforma website, newforma.com. These recordings are a terrific resource for firms needing to learn more about email management, transparency and accountability, digital workflows, project search, and how PIM complements BIM and supports LEED administration. Based upon very positive feedback from industry professionals and our customers, we are excited to extend our webinar series to provide information and guidance about how to address a number of the additional areas of concern currently being faced by AEC firms." 

Howell, Newforma Vice President Bob Batcheler and industry experts will explore the following new topics:
