Newforma Expands Project Information Management Solution

New Software Products Complement Newforma Project Center With Support for Revit, Mobile Access and Comprehensive Contract and Document Change Management

MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwire - January 18, 2011) - Newforma®, a software company addressing the project information management (PIM) needs of architecture, engineering and construction firms, announced today that it is expanding its product line with three new products that complement the latest edition of its industry-proven Newforma® Project Center software. These additions and improvements have been developed in response to industry demand for better solutions to help connect people, processes and information seamlessly and securely for more efficient project delivery. Firms in every discipline -- architecture, engineering and construction -- can leverage this expanded PIM solution to increase profitability, reduce risk and gain competitive advantage. 

In addition to the significant new capabilities and customer-requested enhancements announced today in its press release, "Newforma Launches Newforma Project Center Eighth Edition," Newforma is also introducing the following three new products:

Newforma Project Center Eighth Edition and these new PIM products have all been designed to help architecture, engineering and construction firms optimize evolving work processes that require integration with BIM, increased mobility, greater transparency and improved accountability.

Newforma Chief Executive Officer Ian Howell explains, "Newforma continually solicits input from its customers, which include some of the industry's top AEC firms, to understand their PIM needs. Those needs continue to evolve as our customers expand their use of building information modeling, explore integrated project delivery, try to mitigate risk, deliver increasingly complex projects, compete for new work and strive to retain their existing clients. Our customers have long said to us, 'Don't change our work processes, just make them better,' and we have been able to do so with Newforma Project Center. However, AEC work processes are changing, and enabling technologies like ours must evolve with them, so we have developed new, complementary products that support these changes. Our expanded Newforma PIM solution connects project teams and provides access to project information in a more direct and meaningful way than ever before, without compromising security or relinquishing control."

Newforma's PIM solution now includes:

  • Newforma Project Center Eighth Edition -- a major upgrade to the industry-leading PIM software, which includes new features for managing document control, actionable meeting minutes, project images, Microsoft® Office® Excel® reporting, remote access to project files (even from an Apple® iPad® mobile device), and more; for details, see the "Newforma Launches Newforma Project Center Eighth Edition" press release.
  • Newforma Mobile -- a new product module that brings PIM functionality to any smartphone equipped with a mobile browser, including iPhone®, Blackberry® and Android® mobile devices; for more details, click here.
  • Newforma Add-in for Autodesk Revit -- a new product module that connects spaces and elements from within a Revit building information model to related project processes for document control, punch lists, room information management, design review and more; for more details, click here.
