my boss has asked me to do some digging into this project management software. so far, it's seems to be a pretty complete package, but i'm looking for someone that actually uses it. does anyone use this? what are others using?

We started using it office wide about 3 weeks ago. I've been test driving
it for 2 months.

One word: Awesome! Takes the tedium of project documentation. It
especially tackles the email monster.

look at these videos

We use it, love it and have found Newforma and the Newformant to be responsive to our questions.
Oddly enough we were leaning towards ebuilder as it had what we were after: RFI tracking, webenabled go anywhere software, etc., but Newforma worked its way into the hearts of the principles with the promise of handling emails effectively.
It does just that.

Some things like RFI logging requires a workaround and is not as neat as other software, but we have faith that Newforma in the future will fully support our wants.

It's definitely worth checking out.

If you want to use the viewer for AutoCAD 2010 files it won't read them.

Because Autodesk holds out to cripple everything as long as possible.
