Managing PDFs Doesn’t Call for “Acrobatics.” Switch to Bluebeam.

No more contortions. No more juggling. And no more flaming hoops. Finally, a better PDF document solution tailored specifically to AEC workflows and designed by engineers.

As the title of this article hints, you’re probably well aware of the most popular PDF software on the market. And no wonder! It serves countless industries and remains a public staple for viewing and generating PDFs. But if you work in AEC, you cannot afford to manage PDFs on the same platform used by pub owners to print help wanted signs. Nor can you lean on the same PDF software a K-12 teacher uses to compose her syllabus. Precision, clarity and efficiency are paramount in your line of work, and QA means getting the job done right the first time, on time. And if your PDF solution isn’t up to the task of markup, then buck up for another all-nighter because the work isn’t going to finish itself.

Sound familiar? No worries. That’s where Bluebeam® Revu® rushes to your rescue.

Conveniently, Repro Products is a Bluebeam Silver Partner. Repro Products provides Atlanta businesses with a powerful toolkit of printing and imaging solutions, and our printer showroom has earned a choice reputation as a place where seeing is believing. Yet many of our visitors are pleasantly surprised to learn we offer Bluebeam and get to witness demos of how Revu performs in tandem with their hardware investments. We encourage our showroom visitors to get the most out of the tour by asking about Bluebeam. And for AEC professionals trapped in the inertia of mediocre PDF software: consider exploring Bluebeam Revu. It simply helps documents make sense.
