What’s worse than a day full of meetings? Dealing with all the meeting-related paper! After all, who wants to spend a day sequestered in a conference room only to exit with an armful of agendas, notes and handouts?
The good news – there’s a better way. Check out this email from a Bluebeam user describing how he escapes meetings paper-free:
“I’m on an executive committee and I spend an inordinate amount of time in meetings and traveling to meetings. I see a lot of agendas and material associated with the meetings. Many people print these out, but coming from an IS background, it’s important for me to operate as paperless as possible. I use Bluebeam to keep everything electronic. I convert Word files to PDF, and then use Revu’s markup tools to highlight and make notes and points as I review the materials prior to meetings. I also bring my laptop to meetings so I can use Revu to make amendments to agendas, and also make notes on the fly for my records later. And I can do all of this without altering the substance of the original document.”
Well said, Jonathon! Now, if you have a Bluebeam story that you’d like to share, go ahead and send it my way. And remember, to keep on PDF’ing!
