Newforma Appoints ICN Solutions as Solution Provider in Benelux Region

ICN Solutions to Market, Resell, Implement, Train and Support Newforma PIM Solution

'S-HERTOGENBOSCH, THE NETHERLANDS and MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwire - March 29, 2011) - Newforma®, a project information management (PIM) software company connecting architecture, engineering and construction firms worldwide, and ICN Solutions™, an Autodesk Value Added Reseller (VAR) for the Benelux region, announced today that the two companies have signed a reseller agreement designating ICN as a Newforma Solution Provider. ICN, already well known for its expertise in providing and implementing AEC technology solutions including BIM, will now also market, resell, implement, train and support Newforma's industry leading PIM solution to AEC customers in the Benelux region.

Recently, ICN implemented Newforma® Project Center at Vink Industry, Katwijk, Netherlands, an independent design and build company focused on the biological, pharmaceutical, medical and food related markets. Vink's managing director, Emilio de Vet, said, "We chose ICN Solutions and Newforma Project Center because it enables us to have complete control over the entire organisations' project data, which is of great importance in the field that we work in. Previously, we used multiple software tools within the organisation which we have now replaced with one solution, Newforma Project Center. This solution enables us to be more transparent in our data management flow in a user-friendly manner. On top of the internal benefits, we use Newforma Project Center for interaction with the outside world, allowing us to work more effectively and efficiently with our external clients, contractors and suppliers within a building model."

ICN Solutions Director Laurens Liket said, "Partnering with Newforma is a logical step for ICN Solutions as a premiere AEC technology solutions provider. A key missing element for our customers in their efforts to adopt BIM for their projects was a complementary PIM solution to manage the 'information' in the building models and support model based design workflows. We came into contact with Newforma and, after intensive research, decided that Newforma Project Center was the missing link in the BIM adoption cycle. The latest developments, such as the Newforma Add-in for Autodesk Revit, show Newforma's leading role in developing a PIM solution for our industry based on their willingness to listen to their customers and partners."

"ICN is an established and highly respected solutions provider to the AEC industry in the Benelux region," said Newforma Director of EMEA Operations Tim Bates. "Extending their focus to include the sale of the Newforma PIM Solution and to provide the associated training and support services will allow ICN to better support their exisitng BIM customers. ICN will now also be able to provide a proven PIM solution to other architecture, engineering and construction firms that need to manage, organize and share project information more effectively to support project delivery processes which include their expanding use of BIM. ICN's domain knowledge and solutions expertise lends itself well to helping AEC customers experience the many benefits of implementing our PIM solution in their firms."
