MANCHESTER, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- Feb 24, 2011 -- Newforma®, a project information management ( PIM) software company connecting architecture, engineering and construction firms worldwide, announced today that RMF Engineering, Inc. has selected Newforma® Project Center. The firm's primary goal is to generate efficiencies across common project delivery work processes including email management, file transfers, document review and markups as well as having the ability to search for project information across the entire company network from any office. Additionally, improved email management will lighten the load on its email servers and simplified management of file transfers can be expected to reduce IT administrative burden.
RMF is a 200-person full-service multi-discipline engineering practice with six offices from South Carolina to Massachusetts. Headquartered in Baltimore, Md., RMF is an industry leader in sustainable design. This award-winning firm has a track record of leveraging cutting-edge technology to maximize the reliability and efficiency of the engineering solutions it provides to its clients. With building information modeling (BIM), carbon reduction, and in-depth condition assessment technologies already in its repertoire for over a decade, RMF now adds a proven project information management strategy by adopting Newforma Project Center as part of its firm-wide technology platform.
"We have some of the brightest engineers in the business, and we like to arm them with top-notch technology to optimize their talent and deliver high quality solutions for our clients," says RMF Engineering President and CEO Duane S. Pinnix. "With the Newforma software, we are looking to gain new efficiencies from a project information management perspective. Our goal is to ease the burden on our engineers in terms of managing the deluge of project-related email, organizing and finding project files across our entire network as well as streamlining our file transfer process to and from external project consultants and our clients. Certainly the fact that this software has been designed specifically for our industry and is already being used successfully by other leading architectural and engineering firms has influenced our decision. We also evaluated the labor and cost required to customize a more generic solution to meet our specific needs especially when that work has already been done and is constantly being improved upon by Newforma."
"We are very proud to have such an innovative firm as one of our newest customers," explains Ian Howell, Newforma Chief Executive Officer. "We anticipate that RMF will quickly realize the tremendous benefits of our PIM solution including, for example: using index based search to find terms buried inside some 200-plus file formats specific to this industry, including BIM object properties in DWF and IFC files; managing and searching project emails and their attachments; and handling file transfers with greater security and accountability than continuing to rely on FTP. Importantly, RMF users will not have to change the way they fundamentally work today. Adding Newforma will simply help them make their existing work processes much more efficient."
