MANILA, Philippines and MANCHESTER, NH–(Marketwired – Mar 30, 2014) – Newforma, a project information management (PIM) software company integrating people, projects and processes to transform building and infrastructure project delivery, announced today that CASAS+ ARCHITECTS, one of the top 10 design firms in the Philippines, has made Newforma® Project Center the cornerstone of its firm-wide project information management strategy.
CASAS+ ARCHITECTS implemented the Newforma PIM solution to some 150 users to streamline project delivery workflows, and improve communication among both internal and external project team members, including consultants and clients. According to CASAS+ ARCHITECTS Managing Partner and Architect Carmelo Casas, one of the primary benefits is improved overall productivity among its architects and staff because project information is much more organized and easily searchable even on mobile devices. The firm’s architects are no longer burdened with time-consuming administrative tasks, freeing them to focus on design. In addition, all project stakeholders have visibility into project activities and progress, giving them insight that helps to ensure that deadlines for each phase of the architectural work are met.
Casas explains, “We are seeing value right away. Newforma Project Center has already increased production across the firm by managing our workflows and creating a new firm-wide standard. Prior to implementing Newforma, our project information management processes were disjointed, cumbersome, manual and time-consuming. Now, we spend less time on administrative tasks and more time focusing on tasks that are more crucial to the design process and improve the quality of our work. In addition, the increased efficiency means we can take on more projects and drive more revenue.”
Newforma Chief Executive Officer Ian Howell said, “We created Newforma to help the industry transform project delivery by managing project information, increasing transparency and driving team-wide accountability. We are proud to have prominent firms like CASAS and so many others all over the world, using our solutions to streamline their workflows, better organize project information, and communicate more effectively with all of the stakeholders working on our projects. As a result, our customers are delivering more high quality, on-time, on-budget projects than ever before.”
