What is Bluescape?

Bluescape is an interactive whiteboard software solution, presented as a solution to review work, make decisions, manage a crisis, or make a sale. It enables users to sketch and capture ideas, markup content, and illustrate processes with drawing and diagramming tools, as well as use note cards for Agile and Design workflows. A collaboration tool for distributed teams, it enables team members to connect from homes, offices, and meeting rooms in virtual workspaces so that they can collaborate in real-time or asynchronously from any device, at any time.

We use Bluescape as a collaboration tool across our organization during the design process. It helps support our creative process remotely and in real time.
  • Able to drag and drop other common programs--PowerPoints, PDFs, live links
  • Customizable templates
  • Mark up and add notes from large groups or teams
  • Visual storyboard
  • Chat function is less than ideal. It is easy to lose track of a conversation or a comment. We find making comments on the workspace turns out to be more effective.
  • Mentions--it would be nice to be able to assign groups within the people added to the workspace. Sometimes it'd be nice to do a quick mention with out having to do @everyone or type several names in (@person1, @person 2, etc.)
  • Infinite scalability
This digital version of a pin-up space is absolutely an improvement to my workflow. The input is so robust. What you do with it is where the magic happens.

This program is best suited for team collaboration. It helps to discuss how/where the team will contribute information to it--whether that is discussing the templates or a plan of action. Otherwise, the workspace can tend to get messy.

I like the idea of having a presentation mode, where some of the markups could be hidden. The idea of a working session with consultants or clients sounds appealing, but at the same time, there is a desire for a cleaned up, clear shareout.

Bluescape is being used as our co-create platform within the office. It is a sounding board for all ideas and works really well for throwing a lot of iterations up in front of people informally. It is also somewhat of an archive or tackboard that we can reference if we suddenly remember some idea we were discussing in the past.
  • Allows for a high volume of images and sketches to be put into the canvas
  • Lets you drop in text, freehand sketching, and shapes quick and easy
  • Can connect images and texts together using connectors, which can be customized
  • Sometimes the order of things stacked on top of each other makes it difficult to click on things
  • The iOS app doesn't work well anymore for me on my iPhone
Bluescape is well suited throughout the early stages of the architectural design process. We even integrate our consultants into it to see design intent and how it is evolving. Our firm has graphic designers, interior designers, architects, and structural engineers so it is important that everyone can see how the design is unfolding and be apart of its evolution.

I use Bluescape in my classroom as an active creative space for project teams to develop their concepts and businesses. We use Bluescape heavily within the school of business and it is also being used in other schools at GVSU.
  • Bluescape allows students to see what other teams are doing and this helps eliminate confusion on what the professor is expecting from students.
  • Bluescape use creates a sense of competition between teams as they can see real-time what others are doing.
  • I can point to any team that is doing well to set a benchmark for other teams’ performance.
  • You can use Zoom with Bluescape but it requires solid bandwidth and memory by users.
  • A breadcrumb trail would be nice to watch students performance.
  • I would like individual user analytics for each of my students to see where they’ve been and what contributions each has made.
I sometimes teach at the design school and this is a great tool for creatives to share and develop their work. Many creatives are visual learners and thinkers so Bluescape would serve them well!

We currently use Bluescape as a tool to coordinate projects amongst team members, and share images, project ideas, and documents with our clients. We've also used it as a presentation tool on a touchscreen board to create an interactive experience.
  • Easy to add files, images, etc.
  • Help visualize an entire project on one screen/place
  • Collaborate with multiple team members in one convenient place
  • Occasionally there are connection issues, which can be challenging when we are about to present
  • More options for locking particular documents when sharing with multiple clients
Bluescape is convenient when needing to share files/documents, and our clients comment it is a very cool tool that they haven't used before.

Bluescape is being utilized in client meetings and showroom tours. It is used by our Client Development, Sales and Design departments. Bluescape helps us collaborate and showcase ideas as well as other projects all in one place.
  • We have uploaded Ceros, PowerPoint, renderings and website links to our wall for new client presentations and they are always impressed with the technology.
  • Ceros is a pretty robust program that has links and different touch points and customers love clicking and scrolling through information posted.
  • We use one wall to post all of our customer boards so we can quickly jump into a different board and show new ideas or companies that we have done business with with a few quick swipes.
  • The (2) finger scroll sometimes doesn't recognize both fingers if a user has them close together.
Bluescape is wonderful for live customer presentations but I don't think people have utilized it for remote presentations. Whether that is training, ease of use, or just now sure how to but that hasn't been something we have used even throughout Covid-19.
