Great for project collaboration

Pros

Newforma is great for keeping track and sharing project documents including contracts, drawings, emails, and photos. The Cloud connector is essential for working remotely. New connectors for Bluebeam, Procore and now Teams make this an essential tool to tie in all the tools used with your clients.

Cons

Licensing is fairly expensive. Updates are infrequent, though the past couple updates have been better. I think the company might've had a rough patch, and hopefully coming out of it.

Reasons for Choosing ConstructEx

Newforma was FAR easier to set up and maintain compared to Sharepoint. With Deltek, we'd have to move our data into their database. Newforma just scans the existing data you have on your existing file servers. Nothing is "locked in" to Newforma. It also had excellent integration with outlook for filing emails, or sharing files.

Newforma - Outdated Project Management

There are plenty other project management programs with more features that are helpful for both designers or constructors. Newforma does well enough as a project management program but offers nothing new that other providers are.

Pros

Newforma works appropriately as a database and a structure for filing multiple projects and managing their information. Its basic use as a project management program and file transfer tool does work well enough.

Cons

Newforma looks and feels outdated right off the bat and it can be difficult to find what you're looking for as its buttons and options are not always intuitive. It files information in an outdated way as just a data dumping ground and the search functions are not thorough and sorting interrelated information is not easy.

Good software for project collaboration

Project Center has helped me a lot in collaboration with my team.

Pros

Project Center is the basic use as a project management and file transfer tool. Project Center allows you to save e-mails and to create links to different areas managing the same study project. Thus very easy to use especially when it comes to sending files and generating reports.

Cons

Slow operating system plus the search functions are not deepened. The cost of the licence is a little expensive so it is worth reviewing it in comparison with other software.

Reasons for Choosing ConstructEx

Because it’s expensive and i think it’s better

Best collaboration tools for Project Analysts a

On average, the software is a very useful and accurate tool and must be upgraded to boost it's speed.

Pros

This software is very efficient in helping me garther daily information. I love it because of the accuracy that come with its use. It is very flexible in terms of usage. This software helps me send files to my project team , generate reports and other project documents with ease.

Cons

The difficulty attached to navigating through the software is sometimes a headache. System runs slow and I and my team would have to perform some tasks manually at times.

Reasons for Switching to ConstructEx

Efficiency and data integration
