Overall Satisfaction with Newforma Project Center

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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Saved countless hours archiving emails and other data.
  • Reduced paper filing by going more digital.
  • Our employees now have an easy to use search tool to find the data they need.
We spent a lot of time researching what type of data management software we wanted to use. We are a smaller business and Newforma gave us everything we needed, and integrates well with Outlook. We already have a software in place that keeps up with our finances and time sheets, so Procore was overkill.
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.
