Enhancements and New Features in Bluebeam Revu 2015 Automate and Expedite Critical Workflows
ATLANTA & PASADENA, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 11, 2015 — Bluebeam® Software, leading developer of markup, measurement and collaboration solutions for designers, contractors, facilities managers and owners, is exhibiting at the 2015 American Institute of Architects National Convention. Bluebeam will demonstrate how PDF-based flagship solution, Bluebeam Revu®, brings greater clarity, control and flexibility to digital document management and project collaboration throughout the entire project lifecycle, from site surveys to punch.
Bluebeam will be demonstrating new features introduced in Revu 2015, the newest release of the company’s flagship solution.
“To meet the demands of increasingly complex projects and condensed timelines, project teams look to technology to streamline communication and remove workflow redundancies,” says Richard Lee, Bluebeam President and CEO. “Smarter markups, batch automation and enhanced collaboration technology in Revu 2015 gets all stakeholders on the same page and keeps teams connected throughout the life of a project.”
Over 72% of top design-build firms, 64% of top US design firms and over 58% of top international design firms are using Revu to digitize drawing review, submittal and RFI workflows and speed up project communication by 60%. Revu allows project teams to electronically redline a digital master set of 2D and 3D PDFs that can be directly created from AutoCAD, Revit, Navisworks, SketchUp Pro or any IFC file. All comments are automatically tracked, and team members can access and collaborate on the same drawing set in real time within Revu’s integrated cloud solution, Bluebeam Studio™.
Conference attendees will see new features and enhancements in Revu 2015 that allow design and construction professionals to more quickly and easily access and communicate information, including:
- Batch processing capabilities, including Batch Overlay Pages, Batch Compare Documents and Batch Slip Sheet.
- Sketch Tools that allow users to create shapes based on a PDF’s calibrated scale.
- Dynamic Tool Set Scaler, which enables markups contained in tool sets to automatically resize when used on documents with different scales.
- Capture 2.0, which adds the ability to embed videos into markups and play them back directly from each markup’s Capture viewer.
Bluebeam, whose trade show booth designs are known to draw crowds, will also be unveiling a brand-new booth design at the event.
The AIA 2015 Convention and Expo will be held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from May 14-16. Bluebeam will be exhibiting in booth #2859 to demonstrate how Revu is streamlining workflows and enabling project teams to design and communicate better.
