Bluebeam Software Partners with ShareFile to Allow Users to Access Project Files Digitally

Bluebeam Software announced it is working with Citrix to give Citrix ShareFile full integration with Bluebeam Revu for iPad, enabling mobile professionals to more easily access, manage and share project files digitally. ShareFile is a popular cloud storage service within architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) and other document-intensive industries, for which Bluebeam is the leading developer of PDF-based markup, measurement and collaboration solutions.

Traditionally, AEC, oil and gas, manufacturing and other technical professionals have been faced with the challenge of managing huge sets of large format printed documents and drawings. On larger projects, sheets of paper can total in the hundreds or thousands—and when revisions are made, multiple copies of revised document sets must be generated and distributed to all project stakeholders. Transporting paper copies from the office to the field and back again adds time to demanding schedules. With most project teams pushed to do more in less time and under budget, the paper-intensive and time-consuming method of printing drawings is prohibitive.

The ShareFile integration for Bluebeam allows users to streamline communication among designers, builders, owners and other team members to speed up productivity, decrease costs and ensure that all project team members are referring to a single digital master plan set. ShareFile allows users to create a custom-branded, password-protected space to exchange business files with clients easily and securely. Whether sending large files by email or conducting a secure file transfer, ShareFile’s solutions are designed for mobile industry professionals. While in the Revu iPad app, users can now add their ShareFile account, navigate to their ShareFile files and folders and then sync, view and edit these files using Revu’s markup, measurement and collaboration tools.

Once files are synced with Revu iPad, ShareFile users can work on PDFs from anywhere and even collaborate with project colleagues using Revu’s integrated cloud-based solution, Bluebeam Studio™, in real time or any time, regardless of Internet access. With Revu, users can pin files and folders to custom categories, redline PDFs with industry-standard symbols and save custom markups for reuse. By leveraging ShareFile and Revu iPad, accessing and managing project files is just a few taps away, empowering team members to spend less time looking for information and more time being productive.

“It is always our goal at Bluebeam to help our customers design, build and work better,” remarks Patrick Keller, Director of Product Management. “By integrating ShareFile with Revu iPad, we’re able to help many of our customers seamlessly access and manage project information on the go, whether they are new or seasoned users of either platform.”
