San Francisco, CA (April 29, 2009) – Bluebeam Software, a leading developer of PDF creation, markup and editing solutions, is exhibiting at this week’s American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Convention and Expo. Bluebeam will be displaying the newest version of its professional PDF editor, Bluebeam PDF Revu v 7, in booth #1343 from April 30th to May 2nd at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.
As the only PDF editor specifically designed for architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) professionals, Bluebeam PDF Revu includes specialized tools for sharing and reviewing large format drawings and other design documents electronically in PDF. For example, Revu includes plugins to AutoCAD and MS Office for one button and batch PDF creation, a drawing comparison feature for automatically redlining the differences between two similar PDF drawings, a takeoff tool for measuring and counting from PDFs and more.
On March 24th, Bluebeam released Bluebeam PDF Revu v 7. This new version includes over 20 new enhancements that further Bluebeam’s commitment to improving the way AEC firms communicate design data. Many of the new features, like hatch patterns, arcs and curves, and a revamped stamp editor, help users provide more details to RFIs and other submittals. Additionally, improvements such as the reduce file size feature, PDF package support and the exclusive PDF flags extend the reach of paperless workflows by making it faster and easier to distribute and review PDFs electronically.
“Bluebeam improves communication by mimicking the way our customers work with paper and pen,” said Stephani Haynes, Director of Marketing at Bluebeam Software. “By providing a paperless solution that mirrors the traditional AEC workflow, Bluebeam can help firms quickly achieve tremendous results. Success stories from our AEC users include an 80% reduction in paper usage and distribution, a 60% decrease in turnaround time and an ROI in as little as one week.”
Available since 2002, Bluebeam has received several awards from AEC industry organizations and publications including AUGIWorld, Architectural Record, the Toronto Construction Association, HanleyWood/World of Concrete and Constructech Magazine.
