10 Things You Didn’t Know You Can Do With Bluebeam Revu

April 30, 2019

Here at ZenTek, we’re premiere Bluebeam Partners, that means we sell, support, configure, customize, and train folks on Bluebeam Revu on a daily basis. Now, Revu is a mature product that’s in use by thousands of firms, but it always surprises me how many folks have the program installed but are regularly using less than 25% of the system they’ve paid for!


At least twice a week, I have a discussion with someone who says “Yea, we have Revu . . . we print PDF’s with it.” Wow – that’s like saying “Yea, I have an Aston Martin Valkyrie – I drive it to WalMart.” Revu handles just about everything you need in the AEC world, from redlining and marking up documents thru detailed takeoff and estimates, signing and sealing files, and even overlaying and comparing your construction document. Oh, yea . . . and it prints PDF’s! (Plus it does just about everything Adobe Acrobat does, so why are you paying for both???)



Let’s just do it like this:


Did you know Bluebeam Revu can . . .

  1. Host all the files for your project and let anyone access/edit them from anywhere in the world?

  2. Automatically create links and references to all the details in your construction set?

  3. Add bi-directional hyperlinks between your specs and plans?

  4. Handle full quantity takeoff for all your areas/volumes/linear and object count items?

  5. Perform detailed cost estimates with unit price/cost/tax/waste that update with your takeoff?

  6. Automatically update all your plans when revised – while maintaining your markups/takeoffs?

  7. Provide fully customized data properties to track all your project data?

  8. Select and takeoff multiple rooms and multiple items all at once?

  9. Let 500 people edit the same document, at the same time, and track everyone’s changes?

  10. Find and highlight the difference between any PDF document – plans, reports, even specs?

If you’re not using all those items – which are a small sampling of what Bluebeam Revu can do – then you’re just not making good use of the product you’re paying for. Why not reach out to ZenTek today and let’s talk about how we can help you configure Revu to your personal business needs?
