Overall Satisfaction with Bluebeam Revu

We use Bluebeam Revu for plan take offs, quantity and production tracking daily with our Project Engineers. Our field team members have the app on their iPads to also use to view plans. I personally use Bluebeam Revu daily for contract reviews, document markups, presentations and a variety of other day to day document functions.
  • Markups.
  • Combining / Stapling PDFs.
  • Having multiple screens open at once - works just like a browser tab.
  • The fly out menus are a little complicated for some users, as I get questions about where to find things that should seem simple (i.e. changing fill or text color).
  • I'd like to see it integrate with the HCSS programs.
  • While more costly this program has allowed uniformity in many internal process, so we are speaking the same "program" functions and can easily assist and teach one another. Less time is spent trying to learn the program therefore it has increased productivity.
This program directly replaces our use of Adobe company wide. We have also phased out PlanGrid for the most part as the tools of Procore and Bluebeam both have been more user friendly for our teams.
For all our PDF needs Bluebeam works for our entire company. From day to day PDF viewing, complicated contract markup and review, plan take-off and viewing; it really works for all of it. After a month or so of using the product I personally got used to it faster than I ever did other comparable PDF programs.
