MANCHESTER, NH -- (Marketwire) -- 03/25/13 -- Newforma, a project information management (PIM) software company transforming building and infrastructure project delivery, today announced that AEC firms using an early release of the tenth edition of its Newforma® Contract Management software for construction contract administration have confirmed its readiness for commercial release in April.

LMN Architects Project Manager Art Haug has been part of the team validating the latest release on live projects. "For years we've relied on Newforma software to help us track the flood of submittals, RFIs, change order proposals, and other items generated during the construction phases of projects," Haug said. "During my last project -- a $135 million multi-phase classroom/office building for a major university -- both the owner and the contractor would come to me for communications they could not find in their own files. Because of the ease of tagging email to a Newforma Action Item, RFI or Submittal, I was always able to find what they were looking for."
Matt Tosto is a project engineer and director of technology services for Affiliated Engineers, Inc. "Our project coordinators depend on Newforma software to execute a CA process that's consistent, timely and auditable," Tosto said. "Processing RFIs and submittals the same way every time is one of the ways we mitigate risk.
"We like using the latest edition because Newforma is consistent about implementing our suggestions for improvement," Tosto said. "We can't say that about any other software we use."
New and improved Newforma Contract Management features:
Newforma Contract Management provides an extensive array of functions to manage submittals, requests for information, contracts, change orders and more. Because contract administration is a series of interconnected steps, all functions connect to create seamless workflows and create audit trails. For example, an RFI sketch can be linked to a supplemental instruction, which in turn may be linked to a change order proposal and its final, approved change order. Capturing these relationships as work processes unfold is crucial to ensure accountability and transparency, to avoid delays, and to expedite the resolution of claims.
