Newforma Project Cloud Software


Newforma Project Cloud provides a cloud-based platform for users in design and construction companies to monitor field activities. The key feature of the solution includes RFI management, online form submission, recipient monitoring and automated notifications and reminders.

With Newforma, users can process submittals, forward RFIs to a list of predefined recipients, receive weekly to-do lists and set reminders for critical actions.

Newforma Project Cloud effectively tracks the version numbers of all uploaded documents, and as these documents move through the approvals process, it includes the author information and a timestamp. At any time, users can log in and see the status of any document in real-time.

Newforma Project Cloud centralizes all pertinent information from the design, construction, and owner teams, capturing project history that can be downloaded at the project’s close. The platform's web-hosted markup tools notify users when documents have been redlined, or when another user adds comments.

The software integrates with Newforma mobile apps, allowing users to view plans on their iPads, capture field information, and oversee field tasks such as punch lists and work to complete.

newforma Project Cloud

It's a little pricey but well worth the money if you can afford it for your project.

Pros

This let us easily manage a 12 million dollar job while keeping the architects, subs, project management team, and owners all on the same page. It is so easy to share information without the need to attach everything to an email and send it out. It makes submittals a cake walk, as well as RFIs.

Cons

The only downside is that it can definitely be confusing if you aren't tech savvy. It took me a couple days to be able to fully navigate the website.

Newforma is GREAT for architects and engineers!

Pros

It manages email REALLY well. We also like it for RFIs and submittals. If it had better modules for meeting minutes and PCOs and Pay-Apps, we could abandon Prolog. Unfortunately, we are compelled to use both until Newforma catches up on modules relevant to construction administration.

Cons

The mobile apps were weak the last time I tried them.

Newforma is a great cloud based collaborative tool

Pros

Multi- user.Easy to use, Managed a $1B project in the app and performance was great. Easy to share documents with many consultants.

Cons

Was a stand alone resource, not linked into the Project Management apps we used on the project. Would be to see window of the document to make sure it was the correct one to open.

Didn't like it at all

It really seems overwhelmingly difficult for something that should be drag and drop easy. We gave up near the end of the project and just emailed each other and the prime had someone at their office try to upload the information.

Pros

I was happy when the project was complete so I didn't have to use this software anymore.

Cons

Issues uploading. Issues downloading. Issues receiving notifications. Issues finding and understanding the process.

Good Project Program

We are using Newforma on a large project. The program does well at sharing information.

Pros

We receive confirmation that a document has been uploaded (ie. submittals). This is a nice feature as you can be assured that the process is working. With email, you don't always know that the information was received.

Cons

It is somewhat cumbersome as you have to click on a link to access a document. This can be problematic for the field staff.
