New Plug-in Enables Users to Create Bluebeam Studio Sessions On Demand to Help Teams Solve Problems FasterPHILADELPHIA, May 15, 2012 — (PRNewswire) — �Today at Be Together: The Bentley User Conference, Bluebeam Software is debuting new technology that will make it easier for departments of transportation and architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) firms to digitally manage project drawings and collaborate on the fly. Bluebeam, leading developer of PDF-based workflow solutions for the AEC industry, has added a ProjectWise plug-in into its flagship product, Bluebeam Revu 10. Now, Revu users can simply click a button in ProjectWise to instantly create a real-time collaboration session in Bluebeam Studio™, enabling project team members around the globe to view and redline PDFs simultaneously to quickly resolve jobsite issues.
"Unforeseen project issues require immediate attention to move the job forward," said Don Jacob, Bluebeam Software VP of Engineering. "By enabling users to instantly start real-time collaboration sessions, Revu's new cohesive integration with ProjectWise eliminates meeting coordination time and allows team members to immediately work on finding and implementing solutions."
Released last March, Revu 10 is an award-winning project collaboration solution that leverages the PDF file format. The software enables users to create and redline PDFs and 3D views with industry-standard markups including text, shapes, clouds, leaders, CAD symbols and takeoffs. All comments are tracked in Revu's integrated Markups list, which can be sorted, filtered and summarized. While Revu is a desktop application, its Studio technology brings the software's redlining tools to the cloud. Users can upload an unlimited number of PDFs to Studio and invite project partners to redline them online – either together in real-time or separately on their own time. Only the session host must own a license of Revu, invited guests may view and redline PDFs stored in Studio sessions using Bluebeam's free PDF viewer, Bluebeam Vu.
Be Together is taking place today through May 17th at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA. Attendees can see live demonstrations of Revu 10 at Bluebeam's kiosk in the Projects Zone. Additionally, attendees are encouraged to attend the presentation, "Design Review with ProjectWise and Bluebeam," scheduled for 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 17 in Room 105B. During this session John Simmons, Director - ProjectWise Content Management at Bentley and Bluebeam's Jacob will discuss how ProjectWise is used with Bluebeam to facilitate PDF design review, and offer attendees a sneak peek at Bentley's latest innovation around PDF in action: the Dynamic Review for PDF.
