NEWFORMA PROJECT CENTER WINS ‘DOCUMENT AND CONTENT MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE OF THE YEAR’ AWARD AT CONSTRUCTION COMPUTING AWARDS FOR TWO YEARS’ RUNNING
London, UK – 7 November 2016 – Newforma, a leader in Project Information Management (PIM) for architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) firms worldwide, reveals today that the Newforma Project Center has won a public vote in the 2016 Construction Computing Awards (also known as ‘The Hammers’) in the ‘Document and Content Management Software of the Year’ category. The award was announced at the awards ceremony in London on Wednesday 3rd November and marks the second year running that Newforma has won in this category.
This award win heralds Project Center as a superior solution used by the design and construction sector to connect,, search and manage huge amounts of documents, emails and notes across a project. Already deployed with some of the UK’s largest AEC firms, Newforma Project Center has been streamlining efficiencies and facilitating an industry-wide transition to BIM.
Technology is having a clear impact on the construction industry. A recent survey of 100 UK-based professionals working for organisations in the AEC sector, conducted by Newforma, showed that over the last year a majority of organisations have integrated new digital tools. Respondents also stressed the need for greater collaboration and the utilisation of new tools as a key to success – but as an industry overall, the research showed this is not being done well enough.
“It is a privilege to have Project Center named a winner in The Hammers for a second year running and to be recognised amongst industry heavyweights,’” said Paul Daynes, regional director, UK and Northern Europe at Newforma.
Paul added: “Newforma aims to create a better connected project environment that doesn’t impact on working practices, while optimising project processes to discover, manage and collaborate critical information with project information consumers. With rapid implementation, Newforma Project Center is perfectly placed to de-risk projects, add value and increase profitability in the increasingly competitive construction industry.”
