Océ Offers Newforma Software to the AEC Market

Wednesday, March 04, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Trumbull, CT – Océ, an international leader in digital document management, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Newforma, Inc. to resell Newforma Project Center project information management (PIM) software in the US. This new agreement strengthens Océ's ability to streamline document workflow for the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) community with software that not only removes costly and time-consuming inefficiencies from project execution but also from project-related document processing and printing.

"Océ is pleased to announce this new relationship with Newforma," said Sal Sheikh, Vice President, Marketing, Wide Format Printing Systems division of Océ North America. "With Newforma's innovative software, AEC customers gain direct access to a solution that can help them better manage their project information – from email to the digital exchange of drawings and model views.  In addition, its integration with Océ Client Tools software enables users to simplify their printing and avoid costly workflow bottlenecks."

Newforma Project Center Software Improves Project Execution, Mitigates Risk

Newforma Project Center PIM software enables a more productive environment for the entire AEC project team by streamlining work processes; reducing exposure from errors and omissions; and improving documentation organization, access and communication.

Newforma Project Center is an easy-to-learn solution that provides:

- Organization and management of all internal project information, including email

- Sharing and tracking of published project information with external team members across all projects

- Streamlining of project execution processes.

This enables users to:

- Reduce the time spent performing daily administrative tasks like filing, searching and managing information

- Recapture administrative hours for billable activities

- Easily re-use project information

- Accurately and completely assemble or search archived information

- Better track issues and monitor project progress.

Integration with Océ Client Tools Software Streamlines Document Printing Process

Océ Client Tools software, part of the Océ Repro Desk Server and Oce Repro Desk Professional suite of applications, enables CAD users to simplify printing and avoid costly workflow bottlenecks via batch-processing of multiple file types, digital file previewing from the desktop before printing, and local or remote job submission.  Integration with Newforma Project Center saves AEC users steps in the wide format printing process by allowing users to select a group of files – as opposed to opening documents one at a time using external applications – to be automatically added to an Océ Client Tools print set. Files can then be processed and submitted locally to a printer that is enabled with Océ Repro Desk Server 1.6 or remotely to a reprographer running Océ Repro Desk Professional or Océ Repro Desk Select software.


Newforma Project Center PIM software is currently available for order through Océ.
