Newforma Strives to Make PIM More Widely Accessible

16 Aug, 2012 By: Cadalyst Staff

Newforma, which provides project information managment (PIM) software for the AEC industry, is acquiring Attolist, developer of the AEC-Sync software package. Newforma’s addition of AEC-Sync supports its goal of providing AEC professionals with the range of technology platforms for optimal project delivery, including cloud-based and mobile platforms.

“The AEC-Sync web-based construction collaboration solution complements our existing enterprise products and aligns with our strategy to offer customers both on-premise and cloud-based project information management solutions,” said Newforma CEO Ian Howell.

In related news, Newforma recently licensed the VEO platform from M-SIX, in order to integrate the cloud-based model collaboration capabilities with its own PIM software. According to Newforma, VEO’s use of cloud technology provides the scalable processing power and accessibility to stream the model views necessary for PIM/BIM (building information modeling) integration and model coordination across dispersed project teams. Newforma has also added a new web and mobile development team, tasked with adapting the company's web and mobile products for tablets and smartphones.
