Wimberly Allison Tong & Goo (WATG), the world's number one design firm specializing in hospitality, leisure, entertainment and timeshare needed a PDF solution that met the following criteria:
Jim Grady, the CAD Manager at WATG downloaded a trial version of Bluebeam Revu CAD. As a plug-in to AutoCAD, the major CAD application used by WATG employees, Bluebeam accurately converted a sample set of WATG's CAD drawings to accurate PDF files without the need to adjust conversion settings. Revu's compatibility with all CAD and Windows applications made Bluebeam a suitable firm-wide digital paper solution.
According to Grady, "Bluebeam provides us with an easy solution. We were using Acrobat Distiller, but Bluebeam works better with large format drawings and produces a better PDF." Bluebeam Revu CAD facilitated WATG's workflow process with clients. "Our clients prefer to review a PDF instead of a CAD drawing. Sending CAD drawings requires the client to have the appropriate software and knowledge of CAD to review the drawing," said Grady. "Bluebeam allows us to easily create the PDFs our clients want. In fact, we do all of our client presentations in PDF now."
