Companies Link Project Information Management Software and Enterprise Resource Planning Software to Eliminate Redundant Data Entry
MANCHESTER, NH and PORTLAND, OR -- (Marketwired) -- Newforma, a project information management (PIM) software company integrating people, projects and processes to transform building and infrastructure project delivery, and Axium, a leading developer of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for architectural and engineering (A/E) firms, announced today the integration of their software systems. Joint customers of the two companies will be spared the tedious, error-prone task of redundant data entry, saving them time and reducing the risk of conflicting information.
The integration of PIM and project management and accounting software will allow key information about projects, phases, contacts and companies in Axium® Ajera™ to populate similar fields in Newforma® Project Center. Joint customers who set up projects in Axium Ajera will no longer have to re-enter the information into Newforma Project Center because the available product integration will allow them to have that data flow seamlessly into Newforma Project Center.
RMW architecture & interiors is a joint customer of Axium and Newforma. Chief Financial Officer Lisa Smith said, "Ajera has simplified project management at the same time that it has given us more accurate, reliable information on which to base decisions. Newforma PIM software has become equally mission-critical to project delivery. We are delighted that these two essential vendors have joined forces to simplify our workflows and make our processes more efficient."
"Flowing jointly held information from Ajera to Newforma will reduce keystrokes for our customers, further reducing administrative work," Axium Chief Executive Officer Chris Heim said. "We are specialists in project management and accounting software for the A/E industry and Newforma specializes in PIM software for the AECO industry. It makes sense that we partner together for the benefit of our mutual customers."
Newforma Chief Executive Officer Ian Howell said, "Successful project delivery requires reliable information, and one way to provide accurate information is to consult a single source of truth. Our customers have asked us to provide a more seamless experience with leading ERP systems such as Ajera, which provide a single source of truth for key information about projects, contacts, phases, and companies. Our partnership with Axium is a great example of how we are providing our customers with access to more reliable project information."
