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.

TurboBid

TurboBid is well suited to serve as an on-premise estimating software solution for small and midsize contractors. The type of work associated with the project may include new residential, light commercial, remodeling, service work, flat-rate pricing, or just about any application! The software is less suited for large contractors that may wish to communicate information within a network domain.

Pros

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.

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.

I dealt with one individual and the owner. After making me feel stupid for not being able to get an up to date price list from my suppliers, they decided to try. There were unsuccessful as well. The right thing to do would have been to refund my money, but they refused to do that. I was lied to and basically called a liar on many occasions (including in emails). I have never had an experience like this with a company before. Most of the other companies guarantee their products and would refund your money if something was wrong, didn't work or you were unsatisfied. Not this company! They could care less once they have their money.

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

TurboBid

Turbo bid is perfect for small and midsize contractor users in need of estimating projects. The software comes with excellent customer service and is easy to understand program navigation within a short period of time. The program goes into extreme detail with many capabilities for accounting and estimating. For example, the software has the ability to calculate the material installation time, which not all program competition can do.

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

  • It cost me money for the software that I will never get back.
