Via Newforma's web access capabilities, these professionals have invited over 400,000 external contractors, consultants and additional stakeholders to jointly manage information on more than 720,000 projects worldwide.
Newforma Chief Executive Officer Ian Howell explains, "Our focus has always been to help our customers streamline project delivery, reduce risk and improve client satisfaction by making it easier to organize, find and share information across the entire project team. Our new product suites will make it easier for our customers to adopt and leverage all of the relevant capabilities of our PIM solution."
The Newforma Product Suites
- Newforma® Design Suite is made to improve the way architects and engineers organize, find, and share project information. The suite is anchored by Newforma® Project Center Professional, which has been updated with new and improved features for accessing project information via the web, publishing handover and project closeout information, centrally managing global contacts, and more. It also includes a new product, Newforma® Project Center Onsite, which integrates Newforma enterprise software with popular tablet apps to manage project information on project sites.
- Newforma® Construction Suite makes it easier for design-build firms, general contractors, construction managers, and large specialty subcontractors to manage project information electronically. It contains three products to support construction work processes: Newforma® Preconstruction, Newforma® Project Management, and Newforma® Field Management.
- Newforma® Owner Suite provides owners with much-needed visibility into project delivery much earlier in the design process than alternative information management methods. Newforma Owner Suite captures the histories of projects, improves the effectiveness of the project close-out process, and raises the value of the information provided, improving the management of the built facility. It includes two products: Newforma® Project Monitor and Newforma® Portfolio Discovery.
The new Newforma Product Suites are available now.
