Ran Construction Administration for multiple projects over multiple years with this.
Kommentare: The construction administration and project management tools were amazing. I've since moved to a firm that doesn't use Newforma, I desperately miss all the features that made my life easier, and I try to get them to move up to it daily.
Vorteile: Being able to instantly track just about anything in the CA process of a project at the touch of a button, being able to find any email (and attachment) that was ever written by anyone in your organization about a project, and being able to print out tailored reports easily and quickly.
Nachteile: There was a bit of a learning curve while initially adopting the program, and we did a lot of ASI's. The nature of ASI's are fluid, their topics, numbering and scope sometimes change, some are written up then not needed, Newforma didn't have a lot of flexibility to handle these types of changes.

Newforma - Outdated Project Management
Kommentare: There are plenty other project management programs with more features that are helpful for both designers or constructors. Newforma does well enough as a project management program but offers nothing new that other providers are.
Vorteile: Newforma works appropriately as a database and a structure for filing multiple projects and managing their information. Its basic use as a project management program and file transfer tool does work well enough.
Nachteile: Newforma looks and feels outdated right off the bat and it can be difficult to find what you're looking for as its buttons and options are not always intuitive. It files information in an outdated way as just a data dumping ground and the search functions are not thorough and sorting interrelated information is not easy.

Very powerful organization and collaboration tool
Kommentare: Project team (internal and external) Collaboration
Vorteile: All modules add efficiency to my daily work. I'd highly recommend it for any project-based work or delivery. Easily file emails (which are visible to other project team members/managers), track RFIs, submittal, reports, other project documents from one interface.
Nachteile: Can be a resource (memory) hog sometimes, slow to open sometimes. Newforma Viewer is slower than other PDF softwares, so I don't use it.

An extremely valuable program with potential to be great with an update to fix current problems.
Vorteile: This program is extremely valuable in the Architecture industry. In an age where everything needs to be documented for legal purposes Newforma makes it painless.
Nachteile: Newforma however is often buggy and slow to fix problems if ever, especially involving their Microsoft Outlook integration.

Construction administration made difficult
Vorteile: +Notifications regarding submittal and RFIs and drawings are easy to send through Newformas web based software
-I use this as an engineer getting sent items from architecture firms. It's really how they set it up. An annoying feature is having to log in to download files. I want to be able to download files directly from an email; most architects don't use Newforma that way
-when transmitting files, Newforma let's you include some text. When trying to paste text into the text box, code language will show up on the email transmission. That looks unprofessional.

Great Project Management tool for Architects and Engineers Has come a long way throughout the years
Vorteile: Newforma has a number of nice tools. From Email management, to be able to view drawings (3D or 2D), and they also have a Construction solution called Newforma Project Center that gives you ability to management your submittals, RFI, etc.
Nachteile: The Cons for this is probably it's pricing structure. It also could give itself a new interface update, sometimes it is a little difficult to navigate through everything.

Very unfriendly toward outside users
Kommentare: We are using this for a data center job because our architect uses it.
Vorteile: Tracking ability and export ability for tracking purposes.
Nachteile: If you do not have a license, you are relegated to the web based client which is very glitchy and does not have user friendly sorting features.
