Those of you considering a Bluebeam purchase (or upgrading your existing license) may be wondering which version (Standard, CAD, eXtreme) will be the best fit and value for your everyday work. With the release of Revu 2016, we believe the case for buying Revu eXtreme is more compelling than ever. Here are our top 3 reasons that we think you should make the upgrade to Bluebeam Revu eXtreme:
1. Batch Link
This feature has been included since the release of Revu 12, and from our experience has been the biggest driver for customers to make the jump to eXtreme. You can check out the link above to see it in action, but in a nutshell it allows you to automatically hyperlink your document sets together in a matter of seconds. You can set up Batch Link to hyperlink terms found in the file name, page labels, or a page region (such as your page numbers in the bottom corner of your sheets). This is a tremendous time saver not only for you, but everyone that will ever use that document. Think of how many different parties interact with a document set over the course of a project!
If you are making the push to go paperless, OCR is an extremely useful tool. This is because it allows you to scan all of those old paper documents cluttering up your office to PDFs, then make that text selectable as if it were generated right our of MS Word. This is very important because you will be able to run searches for what you are looking for, as well as hyperlink the text to make it more easily navigable. Bottom line, it makes those scanned PDFs more accessible and more useful.
Most likely you've encountered PDFs with fillable form fields in your everyday life, whether at work, filling out insurance forms, or doing your taxes. These not only make forms easier to fill out, it also makes is much easier to collect the completed information. Revu eXtreme allows you to set up these PDF forms from scratch, complete with text boxes, drop-downs, checkboxes, buttons, and more. Once you've completed your PDF form, anyone that has at least a PDF viewer can complete it (even Adobe Reader).
Bluebeam continues to add time-saving features into each new version of Revu Extreme. In addition to our top 3 mentioned above, we are so impressed by the intelligent automation of Batch Slip Sheet. What's not to love about running a single, easy batch process for large document sets that auto-matches new revisions to their correct originals!
