Bluebeam Software's Vice President of Engineering Don Jacob will discuss "Managing Projects Digitally with PDFs" at the annual International HEEP (Highway Engineering Exchange Program) Conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, on September 13, at The Fairmont Winnipeg.
More than forty transportation industry experts will demonstrate hardware, software and systems at the conference and share what they've learned about using information technology to benefit a variety of engineering projects.
Revu has numerous features that add efficiency and effectiveness to the transportation industry's workflow, including page manipulation, digital signatures and optical character recognition. With Revu, DOT documents are fully searchable and changes are easy to make and track. The use of graphic watermarks and digital signatures identifies individual designers of traffic, bridge and highway projects.
As a leading developer of PDF (portable document format) digital solutions, Bluebeam knows what a powerful tool the PDF can be for agencies seeking robust yet affordable methods of managing project workflows. A potent PDF editor such as Bluebeam PDF Revu allows drawings and documents to be electronically reviewed and redlined, digitally signed to validate approval, and stored in document management systems for more organized, controlled access.
During the session, Jacob also will discuss how implementing a paperless workflow for both internal and external processes can save costs, increase response times and improve communication and efficiency.
"The transportation industry, along with many others, has realized the advantages of PDF digital solutions to more efficiently create, revise and manage documents," said Jacob. "Bluebeam PDF Revu is intuitive and easy to use, customizable, and takes paperless workflows to a new level."
