"Newforma"

What do you like best?

I really appreciate the fact that we haven't had to altar our old approach to file management. Newforma sits on top of what we already have in place. Therefor, if we use it for a year and then decide it's not the best software for us, we can easily revert back to our old approach.

What do you dislike?

We have had a few issues with linking projects together that have files located in multiple locations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are tired of digging through countless folders to find the file you are looking for, give Newforma a try!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The greatest benefit Newforma offers to our company is that we can now file emails to a project in the blink of an eye. No more countless hours of searching for that one email containing all of the important information that we need. Newforma does a fantastic job of indexing our data, making it extremely easy to search.

"NewForma"

What do you like best?

NewForma is new to our company still, so I'm sure it still has a ton of capabilities we are unaware of. But with that, we purchased the program in an effort to file everyone's email automatically and make it easy to find specific emails by using their amazing search options in the database. This also solves the issue of losing emails belonging to employees who have left us as their emails are also on the server, preventing any lost communications or email exchanges that needed to be found later.

What do you dislike?

The look of the platform itself is a little mundane and plain. I would love to see it look a little more user friendly and intuitive for the everyday person to make it a more approachable program for everyone in the company to be on board with.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you do get Newforma for your company, consider having someone give a tutorial on the functions you want your employees to utilize. No need to teach all the functions unless you need them, but of course they could make your life easier.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Like I had stated earlier, we had purchased Newforma to solve our email filing and search problems. But beyond that, it makes transferring files a breeze with not only a paper trail of who it was sent to and when, but if the recipient has opened and even downloaded the email and file! Another useful feature is that it will create transmittal sheets and will keep a easy record of when they were sent!

What Construction Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great Project Management Tool"

What do you like best?

Newforma Project Center provides the ability to manage projects from start to finish. The use of Newforma allows the user to build the project team, manage the most up to date set of plans, send and receive files from project team members, manage submittals and rfi's, track any and all email correspondence for a project and just simply stay on top of the project management.

What do you dislike?

what do i dislike? Is there something to dislike about this program? it offers the ability to coordinate all aspects of your project into a cloud based backup.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Project Management, email management, and dropbox like file transfer protocol all in one.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Newforma solves the issue of being able to link email correspondence from multiple internal users on a single project into a cloud where anyone on the team can review and relate. If someone leaves the organization, all messages are logged, and you dont have to worry about something having been deleted.

"Simple to use Email filing solution"

What do you like best?

Its easy to manage and integrate with the current user practices and key applications. Users can easily file when in the office or out and about and sharing of information that is too large to email is done via a transmittal that is simple to setup and easy to track.

What do you dislike?

Lacks some of the broader project management features and requires work / investment to integrate with other tools that may put some novices off.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be wary of what other tools you're looking to integrate so that you can be sure this works with them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This was primarily an email archiving solution, but we're pushing forward with trying to integrate it with more of our business solutions to make it part of a suite of packages

"Project tracking at its best"

What do you like best?

The ability to manage project information and activity logging. Many features are built in that promote information sharing and management across teams, clients, and activities specific to projects. Searching abilities are powerful. The ability to preview various BIM, CAD, and drafting programs is a very useful features that minimized deployments of 3rd party viewers. Very welcomed by PMs.

What do you dislike?

Not an easy learning curve. The search capabilities, although extensive and detailed, lack a global search found in Outlook. This may be specific to our needs, but I may not be the only one that has needed this feature.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Review the capabilities it offers. It is a very flexible and useful platform for businesses where logging and tracking of information with client is part of the daily workflow. Integrates well with Outlook.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communications between teams and client, subject / issue tracking via the email cataloguing, document release tracking and logging for issuances, related document review through platform-specific viewers without the need to deploy dedicated viewers in our users' devices.

"Excellent Project Life Tracking Tool"

What do you like best?

My favorite thing is the email storage database!

What do you dislike?

So far I am trying to use newforma as a folder sharing program, similar to an FTP site. I was able to accomplish sharing folders and keeping track of who edits or adds which is great but it has limits such as how streamlined it is to view the folder.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use newforma on a daily basis and it is linked to the whole network and outlook accounts. We are trying to implement newforma in the tracking of submittals and files for our in house projects. Instead of manually tracking these items via excel spreadsheets that have to be constantly edited.
