PASADENA, Calif., July 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Bluebeam® Software today announced it has been named to the 2012 Constructech 50, a listing of the most influential construction technology providers with a strong and ongoing market presence, as determined by the Constructech magazine editorial team. The feat marks the second consecutive year that Bluebeam has been selected for this honor and been recognized for its PDF-based digital communication and collaboration technologies designed specifically for the construction industry.
"Bluebeam Software continues to redefine and improve the way project teams communicate and collaborate by developing innovative solutions that meet the ever-changing needs of design and construction professionals," said Bluebeam Software CEO Richard Lee. "Inclusion on the Constructech 50 list is strong validation for our unique approach to helping our customers solve problems faster by providing them with PDF-based solutions that make anything possible."
In recognizing Bluebeam's commitment to helping construction firms leverage the PDF file format for digital project communication, Constructech editors said, "The PDF clearly has a place in the construction workflow, and while other technology providers have ignored this market, Bluebeam Software has become the name in the game with regards to helping the AEC market make better use of this file format."
Released this past March, Bluebeam's flagship product, Revu® 10, pushes the limits of project collaboration, cloud storage and mobility. Revu includes 2D and 3D PDF creation and a variety of industry-standard redlining tools including text, highlights, shapes, clouds, CAD symbols, punchkey™ symbols and takeoffs. Custom markups can be stored in the exclusive Tool Chest™ for easy reuse, and every comment added to a PDF is tracked in the integrated Markups list. Advanced features include automatic drawing comparisons, hyperlink management, integration with SharePoint® and ProjectWise® and tablet PC compatibility.
Revu takes project communication to the cloud through the included Bluebeam Studio™ feature. Through Studio projects, users can store, share and access up to 5GBs of project PDFs and other Windows files in the cloud, for free. Studio sessions enable real-time, document-based collaboration so that remote project partners can communicate with each other anytime, anywhere.
To further enable project teams to work without limits, Bluebeam is debuting Revu iPad, a new app that will be available in the Apple App Store this month. Revu iPad includes some of Revu Windows' most popular features for redlining PDFs, tracking comments and collaborating in real time through Bluebeam Studio.
The Constructech 50 recognizes the most influential construction technology providers with a strong and ongoing market presence. Published in the July/August issue of Constructechmagazine, the list is selected by Constructech's editorial team based on numerous criteria, including the strength of the product/service aimed at the construction industry, ongoing customer satisfaction and growth, as well as outreach and educational efforts for the construction industry.
