Newforma Project Center Review: "Valuable document control between projects, teams, and organizations"

Newforma is our preferred file transfer platform for both incoming and outgoing documents. It provides internal access to project records for teams and users that are specific to projects. It also provides an industry-standard platform that colleagues from other firms use to transfer files and information seamlessly with access management per project and per team.
  • Archiving of project-related communications of all in the tam
  • Searchable database of communication with many filters at great speed
  • File transfer tracking for incoming, outgoing, and receipt (download record)
  • Integration with Outlook and 3rd party graphics managers
  • Automatic organization of files types and content in the server directory
  • The initial file structure of shared directories needs to be set-up with a specific naming convention and order. Consistency is key to maximize the organizational capabilities of Newforma
  • There are many capabilities in the application that go unused due to a lack of training materials
  • Integration with Outlook is good but requires training across the organization for all users to consistently use it
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.

Newforma is being used by employees across our entire organization. It has simplified our our data management, RFIs and submittal process, and large file transfer process. Newforma makes filing emails to specific projects a breeze with their Outlook add-in, and searching for those emails in the future will only take seconds of your time.
  • 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.

  • If a document has two different size papers within the document (say a blueprint is included on an 11"x17" paper), Newforma will not print through the application.
Newforma is extremely well suited for archiving emails. The Outlook add in even has the option to "send and file in project", so you can archive it to a specific project as it is being sent, making it so you will never have to go back and file emails after the fact.
Also, the markup tool is extremely useful and all of our users like it much better than Adobe Acrobat.

It's 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. Although it lacks some of the broader project management features and requires work/investment to integrate with other tools that may put some novices off.
  • Simple email filing
  • Transmital process allows sending out large files and tracking downloads
  • Single pane view of your projects
  • 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.
It has been good to help manage our email filing mountain but struggling with other aspects.We have now engaged with their support to look to improve this and hopefully use more of the functionality that is built into the solution.
