    Great for medium and large construction companies that have a specific salesforce.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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.
    Gil Lopez CTS ING | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Pros

    Cosential

    • Inputting of companies and leads who may become prospects.
    • Creating specific opportunities for construction projects.
    • Tracking opportunities through the entire sales cycle.
    • Inputting detailed notes and activity by the Sales team.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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

    Cosential

    • The open software is somewhat difficult to master as an administrator.
    • Report writing could be more intuitive.
    • The company seems to cater to larger users.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Newforma Project Center

    • I have found it difficult to locate audits.
    • Some users have issues while uploading project data.

    Cosential is very intuitive for the AEC industry and has the ability to be customized for your specific needs. The reports are especially helpful, with good visual dashboards.

    My original trainer / implementation specialist was fantastic. That relationship has continued, even though I have been officially handed off to the customer service side. The customer service side seems to have higher turnover than normal, but in general they are also very supportive, although not as responsive as I might like.

    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.

    Cosential

    Cosential is specific to the A/E industry and is the most intuitive software we found for construction.

    Newforma Project Center

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

    Return on Investment

    Cosential

    • Allowed for common tracking by business developers in different regions.
    • Helped us quantify effort.
    • Provides great reports for management.
    Kevin Shaw | TrustRadius Reviewer

    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
