Bluebeam Software announced today it will showcase how its innovative PDF Solution, Bluebeam PDF Revu, can help Owners and facilities managers digitally access, manage, review and comment on building drawings and documents, during the BOMA 2011 International Conference & The Every Building Show set for June 26-28 in Washington, D.C.
Produced by the Building Owners and Managers Association International, BOMA 2011 brings together thousands of experts and resources in the commercial real estate industry, including building Owners and managers from across the U.S. and around the world, to discuss current trends and best practices and to learn firsthand what industry leaders are doing to stay ahead.
"Bluebeam has been developing best-in-class PDF solutions to meet the digital workflow of the design and construction industry for nearly a decade. We have numerous case studies that illustrate how users reduce paper consumption up to 85% and improve productivity up to 60%," said Bluebeam President and CEO Richard Lee. "We are excited to introduce our latest, most powerful version of Revu to the BOMA audience and demonstrate how Revu can dramatically improve speed and access to building information and reduce costs by enabling facility managers with tools to digitally document changes and rennovations over the life of a building."
As PDF documentation technologies have evolved, many building Owners and facility managers are now requiring final building document delivery in PDF to streamline workflows, improve communication and reduce paper usage. Bluebeam PDF Revu enables contractors and facility Owners and managers to create, share and edit PDFs of as-built drawings and O&M manuals by using Bluebeam's plugins to AutoCAD, Revit or MS Office, or by scanning paper documents to PDF.
Bluebeam PDF Revu improves accuracy and efficiency in change management by allowing users to redline 2D PDFs with industry-standard markups (such as edit text, highlights, clouds, measurements, CAD symbols, shapes and images) on a desktop, laptop or tablet PC or to view 3D PDF drawings and documents. Revu's Markups list keeps everyone on the same page by tracking all comments by reviewer and by date. The built-in text search and exclusive VisualSearch™ tool further simplifies electronic markup by enabling users to search for keywords and symbols on PDFs and apply markups and hyperlinks to search results.
Bluebeam PDF Revu also makes it extremely easy to organize and refer back to digital archives by making it simple for users to:
In addition to the Standard and CAD editions, Bluebeam PDF Revu eXtreme™ provides advanced tools for power users including PDF forms creation, Optical Character Recognition (OCR) for transforming scanned PDFs into searchable text, powerful scripting tools for automating multi-step processes and redaction for permanently removing sensitive text and images from PDFs.
Bluebeam representatives will offer live demonstrations as well as free 30-day trial CDs of Bluebeam PDF Revu June 26-28 at Booth #318 during BOMA 2011 at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Washington, D.C. For more information about Bluebeam PDF Revu 9, visit www.bluebeam.com.
