MANCHESTER, N.H. – Newforma, a project information management (PIM) software company integrating people, projects and processes to transform building and infrastructure project delivery, announced that its collaboration platform, Newforma Project Cloud, now automatically shares data with Newforma Project Center enterprise software and selected Newforma Mobile Apps. This integration furthers Newforma’s practice of making project information available to team members in the office, from the cloud, and on the go.
Newforma Chief Executive Officer Ian Howell said, “Unlike cloud-only products, Newforma Project Cloud integrates on-premise and hosted project data to ensure that project team members have access to the most up-to-date project information regardless of their location in the field, in the office or on the go. Properly connecting every member of the project team not only optimizes efficiency, but also captures a full audit trail for the project. Our Newforma solution reduces the risk of missing or out-of-date information so that team members can focus on making the decisions that drive on-time, on-budget project delivery.”
Newforma Project Cloud – Newforma Project Center integration
Newforma-to-Newforma (N2N) technology automatically transfers submittals and requests for information (RFIs) back and forth between Newforma Project Cloud and Newforma Project Center. As a result, team members using Newforma Project Center no longer need to download submittals and RFIs from Newforma Project Cloud. Instead, submittals and RFIs assigned to team members automatically appear in Newforma Project Center’s Submittal and RFI activity centers, where the information is logged as part of the project record.
Similarly, team members using Newforma Project Center no longer need to upload submittals and RFIs to Newforma Project Cloud. Instead, that project information automatically updates in Newforma Project Cloud as it is updated in Newforma Project Center.
About Newforma-to-Newforma technology
N2N technology enables team members using Newforma software in different companies to share information as if they were on the same network. Sharing is subject to invite/accept permissions that both companies agree upon when setting up the N2N connection.
Newforma Project Cloud and mobile apps integration
Newforma Project Cloud now integrates with two Newforma mobile apps: the Newforma Plans app, which automatically downloads the latest plans and specifications from Project Cloud onto team members’ iPad tablets; and the Newforma Project Teams app, which automatically downloads individuals’ contact information onto iPhone or Android smartphones and iPad tablets.
