Pros: Ease of use, intuitive UI and comprehensive customer support. As long as the software is managed, it is pretty bulletproof.

Overall: There is a clear path for all of the documents for any given project.

Newforma is a great cloud based collaborative tool

Pros: Multi- user.Easy to use, Managed a $1B project in the app and performance was great. Easy to share documents with many consultants.

Cons: Was a stand alone resource, not linked into the Project Management apps we used on the project. Would be to see window of the document to make sure it was the correct one to open.

Good product

Comments: We are using Newforma on a large project. The program does well at sharing information.

Pros: We receive confirmation that a document has been uploaded (ie. submittals). This is a nice feature as you can be assured that the process is working. With email, you don't always know that the information was received.

Cons: It is somewhat cumbersome as you have to click on a link to access a document. This can be problematic for the field staff.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is a capable program to share information.

Newforma is GREAT for architects and engineers!

Pros: It manages email REALLY well. We also like it for RFIs and submittals. If it had better modules for meeting minutes and PCOs and Pay-Apps, we could abandon Prolog. Unfortunately, we are compelled to use both until Newforma catches up on modules relevant to construction administration.

Cons: If it had better modules for meeting minutes and PCOs and Pay-Apps, we could abandon Prolog. Unfortunately, we are compelled to use both until Newforma catches up on modules relevant to construction administration. The mobile apps were weak the last time I tried them.

Recommendations to other buyers: Get everyone in the organization on board, otherwise, there will be two camps. Users and non-users. The users will achieve great benefit, the non-users will just frustrate the users.
