Newforma Australia Incorporates to Improve ANZ Project Delivery

AEC Industry Exec Frank Sgammotta to Helm Design and Construction Project Information Management Software Company; Smartsoftware Continues in Support Role

MANCHESTER, NH--(Marketwired - Feb 3, 2014) - Newforma, a project information management (PIM) software company integrating people, projects and processes to transform building and infrastructure project delivery, announced today that it has incorporated a new business entity, Newforma Australia, to sell directly to customers in Australia and New Zealand. Software industry veteran Frank Sgammotta will be Newforma Australia's country manager, responsible for expanding the business across the region. Newforma's former reseller partner, Smartsoftware, will continue to provide technical support and training services to both existing and new Newforma enterprise customers.

Newforma began selling in Australia and New Zealand through Smartsoftware in 2007. Newforma customers in the ANZ territory, including leading companies such as HASSELL, Wood and Grieve Engineers, Architectus, CGR AMW, dwp|suters, and Jasmax, use Newforma project information management software to deliver increasingly complex projects on increasingly aggressive schedules.

"Our decision to incorporate and hire Newforma personnel to sell direct in Australia and New Zealand reflects the significant expansion in our business activities since we first began our partnership with Smartsoftware as our authorized value-added reseller," said Newforma Chief Executive Officer Ian Howell. "Being able to attract an executive of the caliber of Frank Sgammotta as our new country manager demonstrates the maturity and promise of this marketplace, and the increasingly important role that Newforma PIM software has in helping designers and builders deliver more successful projects. Additionally, we are proud to maintain our long-standing relationship with Smartsoftware as our certified support and services partner for both our existing and new customers."

Sgammotta, who has extensive experience with design and construction software companies, including Autodesk and Bentley Systems, sees the Newforma project information management solution as the answer to today's challenges in project delivery. "Architects, engineers, owners, and construction companies all face similar challenges managing their project information and processes, but they need to address those problems in different ways," Sgammotta said. "Newforma has established itself as the leader in project information management software that meets the varying needs of different companies and individuals on the project team. The Newforma solution enables more effective and efficient operations whether your project information is in the office, in the cloud, or on your mobile devices."

Veteran industry sales professional Omar Awny has also joined Newforma Australia, responsible for winning new business in Australia and New Zealand.

Newforma Vice-President of Asia-Pacific Operations Ved Narayan said the new corporate structure would not disrupt service to existing customers. "Smartsoftware, with its service excellence, will continue to be our support and services partner, therefore providing continuity for the delivery of support, deployment, configuration and training of all Newforma products in the ANZ territory," Narayan said. "The establishment of Newforma Australia is all part of our growing presence and commitment to the Asia Pacific region."
