Newforma acquires mobile platform developer SmartUse

Newforma-smartuse-big5-DubaiThe SmartUse app operates on Apple iPad tablets. (Image source: Apple Inc.)US project information management software company Newforma recently acquired SmartUse, a Canadian developer of an innovative, touch-friendly mobile platform for construction project collaboration

“The SmartUse app is the most advanced mobile solution for viewing, marking up, auto-linking and sharing project plans,” said Newforma chief executive officer Ian Howell. “It allows contractors and owners to easily review plans on computers in their offices or on tablets on the job site. Because it also operates on a large, 55-inch touch screen, SmartUse enables an entire project team to interact with a set of documents as they collaborate in real time in a project office or job trailer. We are excited to add this new product to help contractors and owners better manage the thousands of plans they keep and reference for all of their projects.”

SmartUse founder and chief executive officer Francois Tanguay has joined Newforma as vice president of business development.

“SmartUse strengthens Newforma’s already strong product line-up by meeting the mobility needs of contractors and owners, not only in the construction industry, but in other industries where project plans need to be reviewed, marked up and shared,” Tanguay said. “By combining forces with Newforma, we will be able to continue advancing our mobile collaboration solution, transforming how contractors and owners manage project information.”

The product will continue to be sold under the SmartUse name and it will be marketed and supported by Newforma internationally, including at the Big 5 2014 in Dubai. The SmartUse app operates on Apple iPad tablets and Macintosh computers, Windows 7 PCs, and Windows 8 devices, including a 55-inch (A0 size) workstation. Smart Use can be downloaded as a free viewer for unlimited users or as a fully functional 30-day free trial.
