Bim360

Bim360 is okay to use in the field. I feel there are far more superior products or software out there to use. Bim360 isn't the easiest to use and takes time to learn. Additionally, flipping through plans is like flipping through a book, it's a slow process unless you know specifically where/what is on each page needed.

Newforma Project Center

Newforma is a great tool to collaborate with large teams and between firms. It allows for great documentation of transfers, activities, and other procedural aspects of projects that require collaboration between disciplines, for example, MEP, electrical, architectural and technology. For internal use, Newforma has been great for communications tracking and archival, as well as for record-keeping of all the users in a team or number of teams. Many great options are features are unused due to a lack of training or exposure to them, for example, the graphical viewers that can preview CAD, Revit, and other formats, or the markup tool available with the desktop client.

Pros

Bim360

  • Allows office personnel to efficiently coordinate with other trades.
  • It allows field personnel to make decision on the fly if changes need to be made to the originally coordinated designs.

Newforma Project Center

  • Newforma sits on top of our previous filing system (Windows Explorer). This was very important to us because we didn't have to change the project numbering system in order to fit Newforma's design. Also, if we were to decide we didn't like it, we could easily revert back to our previous methods.
  • Newforma does a great job of indexing information, making searches much easier by being able to use keywords instead of knowing the exact file location. No more traversing through countless folders before finding what you need.
  • Newforma keeps a read receipt for everything that you submit through it for issue tracking, and keeps an easy to read record of your workflow.

Cons

Bim360

  • CAD file collaboration is unstable.
  • Can not search the text of drawings or specs to find words. This is a huge deal breaker.
  • Cannot zoom in all the way on the drawing to see details blown up.

I have not had the opportunity to use the support for Bim360 - this is the reason for only giving it a "1 rating." The general contractor has always answered my related questions and/or concerns when using this program/software. I cannot give an honest opinion on the support function unless I use it. I would hope it would be very supportive such as Fieldwire, Procore, etc.

While I have never asked for support myself, a Newforma representative has been in the office annually to give training seminars and info sessions on how to fully use the product. I find this essential to keep the product relevant and make sure everyone knows its full capabilities and an important part of customer support.

Alternatives Considered

Bim360

Bim360 is an immature, oversold, and under-delivered product that is simply the only option available for collaboration when you are locked into the Autodesk Revit ecosystem. SharePoint Online, Dropbox Business, and other cloud file management and sharing solutions show you the potential of clouds when they are implemented and deployed correctly, and directly contrasts with the present state of the BIM 360 platform.

A good competitor against other similar solutions and support is excellent.

Return on Investment

Bim360

  • We are able to avoid potential issues due to lack of communication between parties involved on the project.
  • Ease of model updating.
  • Ability to share with the client in an easy-to-grasp way.

Newforma Project Center

  • Newforma makes it easy to transfer, share, archive, and search extensive data sets in a single GUI
  • For it to be effective, all users in a team must receive a basic training and use it consistently
  • Adoption in the industry is good (A/E); many teams use it consistently. Learning to use it once produces time-saving in subsequent projects
