Bluebeam Software today announced the Australian debut of its new Bluebeam PDF Revu 9, the latest, fully-loaded version of its powerful PDF platform technology that provides a smart, simple solution to create, markup, edit and manage PDF files. The product will be unveiled to the Australian market today at the 23rd Annual designEX, Australia's premiere design and architecture event that brings together the most highly regarded contemporary and classic designers and architects in the country. The event runs April 13-15 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
The all-new Revu 9 takes the quest for paperless project management to a whole new level with more than 30 enhanced features that streamline PDF markup, viewing, processing, collaboration and sharing.
"Revu 9 is truly our most powerful PDF platform to date, incorporating everything our users already love about Revu for project communication with new features that now make it even more flexible and easy to use," said Bluebeam Software CEO Richard Lee. "We're looking forward to introducing the Australian design community to our most advanced version yet."
Revu 9 builds upon Bluebeam's intuitive PDF reviewing, editing and markup capabilities and its exclusive Tool Chest™ that enhances efficiency by enabling users to save commonly used markups for easy reuse, importing or sharing with colleagues. The latest edition puts a host of new, more advanced features into the hands of designers and architects, offering greater flexibility and usability, including:
In addition to these advanced features, Bluebeam PDF Revu 9's MultiView™ Extended capability, allows users to run multiple sessions of Revu concurrently and move document tabs dynamically between the sessions to enhance productivity. Tabs can also be dragged and dropped to an attached second monitor for expanded viewing and more efficient review. When it's time for a clean slate, the new Erase Content deletes all unwanted text and images with a single click. For better issue tracking, Revu 9's integrated Markups list enables users to assign custom statuses to markups, complete with text and colour properties that change depending on the selected state.
Improved foreign language support has also been included to tear down communication barriers and enhance global collaboration. New Unicode text support enables users to add text-based markups in any left-to-right reading language. Additionally, a markup translation feature instantly translates markups to more than 55 languages. Users can even dictate their markups verbally through a microphone while Revu 9 converts them to text markups on any PDF.
Bluebeam PDF Revu 9 is available in three editions - Revu Standard for general CAD and Office users (US $179 per seat), Revu CAD for AutoCAD, Revit® and SolidWorks® users (US $239 per seat) and Revu eXtreme for PDF power users (US $299 per seat). Volume discounted pricing is available for multi-seat purchases. Bluebeam Software products are sold to the Australian market through a network of resellers.
