Rchitects, Inc. Gains Ability to Take on More Projects

Firm Led by Jose Pedro "Bong" Recio Implements Newforma Software for Project Information Management to Increase Efficiency, Drive Revenue and Minimize Risk

MAKATI, PHILIPPINES and MANCHESTER, NH -- (Marketwired) -- 03/23/14 -- Newforma, a project information management (PIM) software company integrating people, projects and processes to transform building and infrastructure project delivery, is pleased to announce that Rchitects, Inc., has implemented Newforma software. The firm, founded by Jose Pedro "Bong" Recio and respected for its work in high-rise and mixed-use building design, says Newforma software has improved overall efficiency, increased revenue and minimized risk, which the firm's production head says increases the company's ability to do more work.

Initially, the firm's leaders were looking for a software solution to help with document management and project team collaboration. When they discovered Newforma's capabilities in these key areas, as well as a variety of other work processes specific to architects, they knew they'd found the right solution for their firm.

Rchitects, Inc.'s Frederick Clemente, production team head, explains, "It's clear that whoever designed Newforma understands the way architects work. Its ease of use really separated Newforma from other solutions we considered. We set out to find a solution that would help us track versions of drawings and find email and documents in order to improve our response time to clients and fellow project team members. Newforma has helped us achieve this and so much more. With improved overall efficiency, not only have we improved our processes and enhanced our client service, we have improved productivity to be able to take on more projects that bring in additional revenue without sacrificing our commitment to high quality design."

Using Newforma software, Rchitects has replaced cumbersome, less secure systems for sharing information such as FTP and Dropbox, neither of which provided the ability to track if recipients received or downloaded the files. Newforma allows project team members to share information with no file size limitations and a verifiable audit trail that is captured automatically.

Rchitects has granted its clients access to key project information via Newforma Project Center's web access function, giving clients transparency and control that simply was not possible before.

Newforma software is not limited to enterprise and web applications. Newforma mobile apps enable Rchitects personnel to access project information on the go. For example, they have stopped printing drawings to take on site to guide the punch list process. Instead, they consult the Newforma Plans app for the latest drawings and specifications, and generate punch list items from the app.

"The construction market in the Philippines is expected to grow substantially in 2014," said Newforma Chief Executive Officer Ian Howell. "This creates a tremendous opportunity for firms based in the region, like Rchitects, Inc., to take on more projects with complete confidence in their ability to manage the extra fee generating work successfully. It's not just the ability to do more faster; it's the ability to leverage the unique capabilities of Newforma to make transparency and team-wide accountability the norm that helps our customers like Rchitects achieve greater profitability."
