Overall Satisfaction with Bluebeam Revu
- A host of batch processes offer a huge time savings over the manual alternatives
- Powerful cloud-based collaboration via Bluebeam Studio
- Easy and intuitive markup tools
- Really tough to provide any cons. Bluebeam listens to their user base and constantly strives to improve the product.
- We have not attempted to quantify a specific ROI for Bluebeam Revu, but the batch processes offer such a huge time savings over the manual alternatives that you can easily justify the price of the software for an individual after running just one or two processes.
- When we first rolled out Bluebeam Revu and started using it for some batch drawing overlays and comparisons, we were often saying "that just paid for itself" once the automated process was complete.
We used Adobe Acrobat prior to switching to Bluebeam Revu. We've found Bluebeam Revu to do everything that Acrobat could do and much, much more. And surprisingly, for a more reasonable price. Once we were exposed to Bluebeam Revu, it was a no-brainer to make it our standard.
We also leverage Bluebeam Studio Sessions and Projects for collaboration to the extent that they have essentially replaced our need for services like Dropbox, Box, or FTP sites.
