TOOL FOR INFORMATION SHARING,COLLABORATION AND PROJECT MANAGEMENT

it is very good has an information gathering center, our consultant uses it to send drawings that can be viewed in either 2D or 3D view

Pros

what I did like about the product is that it help save emails and create links to the emails from different professionals working on the same project, making job cost , machinery tracking, creating material schedules easy, it helps project managers to manage submitted files so he can create a good and effective work schedules.

Cons

the user interface is not user friendly and not easy to navigate, and also the product pricing structure.

Ran Construction Administration for multiple projects over multiple years with this.

The construction administration and project management tools were amazing. I've since moved to a firm that doesn't use Newforma, I desperately miss all the features that made my life easier, and I try to get them to move up to it daily.

Pros

Being able to instantly track just about anything in the CA process of a project at the touch of a button, being able to find any email (and attachment) that was ever written by anyone in your organization about a project, and being able to print out tailored reports easily and quickly.

Cons

There was a bit of a learning curve while initially adopting the program, and we did a lot of ASI's. The nature of ASI's are fluid, their topics, numbering and scope sometimes change, some are written up then not needed, Newforma didn't have a lot of flexibility to handle these types of changes.

Newforma Project Center for information storage

For a large scale construction project that has a long schedule duration, Newforma is invaluable for document storage and access.

Pros

Newforma is an app that can be used on your PC, however it also has the option to be located in Windows "file explorer". This allows smoother drag and drop of files - as well as quick access! It has excellent storage capabilities - cloud based for all stakeholders to access.

Cons

Newforma the app is pretty clunky to transfer files. There are many steps to go through. Sending an email would be quicker, but Newforma allows the file transfer to be logged and accessible to all (even those not on the initial file transfer). Sometimes the app crashes while trying to transfer a file.

Newforma - Outdated Project Management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.

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 Newforma Project Center

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.
