Newforma Mobile Provides AEC Professionals On-the-Go Access to Project Information

MANCHESTER, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Apr 19, 2011 -- Newforma®, a software company addressing the project information management ( PIM) needs of architecture, engineering and construction firms, announced today that industry leading AEC firms that have tested Newforma ® Mobile find that the solution delivers actionable project information to project team members working on-the-go and eliminates barriers to moving project processes forward caused by lack of access to project information from the field. In fact, with Newforma Mobile AEC firms can significantly improve responsiveness by having live access to project information that is "back in the office" when they are on site. On-the-go access to project information translates into more timely decision making, reduces exposure to risk and helps avoid costly mistakes or delays.

"We were excited to put Newforma Mobile through its paces. We have long enjoyed the benefits of Newforma's PIM capabilities, but we often find that we need access to information from our office while we are out on a job site, visiting a client or waiting for a flight," said Boulder Associates Architects Senior Associate Todd Henderson, AIA. "With Newforma Mobile, all we need now is our smartphone, which is always at hand, to access that project information back at the office. Now, even while travelling, we can keep an eye on critical project delivery workflows and respond much more quickly in order to keep the job progressing on schedule. Perhaps most importantly, mobile access to our project information allows us to respond to client or contractor requests immediately rather than having to ask them to wait until we return to the office to provide an answer."

Smartphones have made working on-the-go easier than ever before. Still, all too often, critical project information is "back in the office" and not easily accessible from the field. Newforma Mobile provides access to project information for AEC professionals on-the-go via any smartphone equipped with a mobile web browser, including iPhone®, BlackBerry® and Android® mobile devices. It utilizes the Newforma Info Exchange server and standard mobile web protocols to deliver PIM functionality that has been optimized for the small form factor of a smartphone. With Newforma Mobile, team members in the field can browse and search project email and any attachments; access project team contact information and with a simple click email contacts or even map their location; view project logs and item details including action items, meeting minutes, RFIs and submittals; and view project documents including record documents and files published to Info Exchange.

"We heard customers loud and clear when they told us that Newforma Project Center delivers all of the PIM functionality that they need when they are working in their office or on their laptop online, but they also needed remote access to their project information when they're in the field and all they have with them is their smartphone," said Newforma Chief Product Officer Allen Preger. "Our goal with Newforma Mobile was to give on-the-go team members ready access to the project information they need when on the job site or at a meeting with a client to be able to make a timely decision or respond to their client there and then. Newforma Mobile allows busy project team members to stay connected with their project information and helps facilitate on-time project delivery."
