Cool user feedback about Revu

February 28, 2012

There’s nothing better than hearing from users like you about why you love Revu! Recently a Revu user took to his blog to share why he thinks Revu is a Cool Tool.

“As a PDF reader and markup tool for construction and design professionals, or anyone who works with large format drawings, there is no equal (Bluebeam is not for creating drawings, plans or text documents, but for converting them to PDF and working with them once in this format.). I have gotten our entire office of designers and estimators to switch from printed plans to using Revu with little to no coercion. Even the strongest proponents of paper, those who print their email, have decided to switch to digital plans after seeing how easy and fast Revu really is.”

Tips for taking Revu enterprise-wide

February 2, 2012

It seems to be the trend these days –and one that we here at Bluebeam are very excited about. More and more of our customers are standardizing on Revu, not just as their PDF editor, but as a solution to complete a variety of digital workflows. Among those customers publicly announcing they have standardized on Revu include MMM Group (they’ve replaced their seats of Adobe Acrobat with Revu), the City of Bellevue, WA (Revu is a part of the city’s new solution for paperless permitting), COWI (they’re using Revu for assembling project reports and reviewing drawings ) and Grant Thornton’s Tax Practice (this group is using Revu to digitally annotate PDF work papers and digitally sign PDFs).

Are you also looking at going enterprise-wide, or perhaps project or department-wide with Revu? Well, you’re in luck. We’ve got some great resources for you!

In addition to clicking the links above to see how your fellow Revu users are Bluebeaming, we have a published “Guide to Implementing Bluebeam within Your Enterprise” – in PDF, of course. Check it out for tips on net deployment, configuring the Bluebeam Administrator, managing configurations and selecting and deploying Revu preferences and settings.

We also offer Enterprise Licensing, which automatically tracks license usage and releases inactive seats, making them available to install on other computers.

Do you need more help standardizing on Revu? Let us know – we’re always here. And remember, to keep on PDFin’!
