We know that quite a few of you have found our robust hyperlinking feature to be an invaluable tool for digitally managing your project drawings and documents. In fact, McCarthy detailed their success in this white paper. We also know that there are some Bluebeam users looking to replicate these results, and need some help getting started.
Well, look no further! We’ve recently put together a video on the best practices for hyperlinking from within Revu. Check it out on our YouTube page.
Happy hyperlinking, and remember to keep on PDFin’!
Last Wednesday, September 14th, we attended the Constructech Vision Awards with McCarthy Building Companies at Drury Lane in Oakbrook Terrace, IL. And, we’re happy to report that we came out winners!
The Constructech Vision Awards ‘honor companies that have realized the advantages of applying innovative technologies to their everyday businesses as well as the technology enablers that have helped them achieve their goal.’ McCarthy and Bluebeam were up for an award in the Builder/GC Commercial +$500 million category. The award entry focused on how project record drawings can be updated, maintained and distributed electronically in PDF in lieu of traditional hand posting methods, which are labor intensive, inefficient and difficult to duplicate. McCarthy used Revu to hyperlink PDF documents for better access to information such as drawing details, specifications and RFIs. Well, McCarthy’s efforts (and Bluebeam’s technology) paid off, because we tied for Gold – the highest achievable honor!
Here is a quick interview that we recorded after we received the award with McCarthy’s Vice President, Information Technology, and Bluebeam’s Senior Account Manager:

Since the release of Revu 8.5, users have been using Bluebeam Studio to connect, create and collaborate with anyone, anywhere at any time. Then, a few months back we introduced the highly requested Studio Server, which gives users more control over their Studio settings and allows them to host all of their online collaboration sessions locally behind their firewalls. So exactly how different are Studio and Studio Server you ask? Well, to explain the differences between the two, why each was created, and the incredible benefits they provide, we interviewed none other than our President & CEO, Director of Account Services and Product Manager.
