Xerox Launches ConnectKey-Enabled AltaLink Digital Workplace Assistant

The Xerox AltaLink C8100/B8100 Series with ConnectKey Apps and Automation speeds digital transformation and supports workers in and out of the office

Norwalk, Conn. —  Xerox announced its new Xerox AltaLink® C8100 and Xerox AltaLink B8100 Series multi-function printers (MFPs), that can better support today’s flexible work environment and help companies speed their digital transformation with access to the ConnectKey® ecosystem of apps. In addition to its printing capabilities, the AltaLink 8100 series helps speed workplace digitization with ultra-fast scanning of up to 270 images per minute and Optical Character Recognition that allows clients to extract more value from information. Combined with ConnectKey apps, including connections to the most popular cloud solutions, these printers can support a key area of focus for businesses as they shift from physical to digital enterprises. According to a recent global Future of Work Survey by Xerox, 34% of businesses are expediting digital transformation plans as a result of COVID-19.

“ConnectKey technology transforms the AltaLink C8100/B8100 into the digital workplace assistant that modern businesses need to speed their digital transformations,” says Tracey Koziol, senior vice president of Global Offerings, Xerox. “The tablet-like user interface allows for easy, familiar interaction or the user can choose to print from their mobile devices. These workplace assistants bridge the physical and digital world with innovative apps like converting the most challenging hand-writing into editable text documents, auto-redacting documents for private information and even creating audio files from text.”

According to Quorcirca, a Smart MFP is a key enabler for digital transformation, providing access to services and systems beyond digitization and into more complex business process and workflow automation.1

“The most mature smart MFP platform is Xerox ConnectKey,” says Louella Fernandes, director, Quocirca. “Xerox ConnectKey-enabled MFPs support a range of cloud and mobile digital workflows, boosted by a broad ecosystem of Xerox and third party-developed apps. The Xerox App Gallery continues to only grow stronger with more apps and widening developer support.

Additionally, a more flexible workforce brings with it heightened security concerns. Xerox partners with leading cyber security experts such as McAfee and Cisco to give AltaLink comprehensive built-in security that protect both device and network. Integration with industry leading security solutions like Security Information and Event Management solutions from McAfee, LogRhythm and Splunk simplifies reporting and management of security events.

New Xerox Team Availability App Supports Flexible Workplace Needs

Recent Xerox Future of Work Survey shows 58% of respondents plan changes to remote working policy

NORWALK, Conn. Xerox has announced the launch of its Team Availability App, a quick-to-deploy, real-time solution for organizations that need to understand employee availability and location. Knowing where and whether employees are working is critical to managing flexible work environments, where the percentage of employees sharing time between home and work locations grows.

Organizations are actively supporting and investing in technology solutions for a hybrid workforce. A recent global business survey commissioned by Xerox shows 58% of respondents plan to change their work from home policy within the next year. This new acceptance of a hybrid workforce has also revealed technology gaps, with companies increasing investment in remote technology resources (55%) or a hybrid of remote and in-office resources (40%).

“Managing a distributed workforce during a continued pandemic presents unique challenges no organization has experienced before,” said Joanne Collins Smee, executive vice president and chief commercial, SMB and channels officer, Xerox. “Organizations need to know who is available and where so they can make better decisions when allocating resources and work. This tool provides real-time knowledge to managers with distributed employee populations.”

Unlike other attendance management tools, which need to plug into IT infrastructure and take weeks to implement, the Team Availability App is ready in just hours. Once populated, the app provides authorized users with customizable and privacy-protected data for strategic decision making. Xerox is rolling out the app across the company to support its Path Forward plans to manage a phased approach to returning to the workplace safely. Xerox is leveraging the app with its own employee population to conduct daily health checks for exposure related to COVID-19. Tracking of this activity allows for a safe and phased return to the workplace.

The U.K.’s prestigious Imperial NHS Trust was the first organization to pilot the Xerox Team Availability App to access the status of essential workers across the Trust and its newly assigned locations at the height of the pandemic.

“It’s important for a healthcare provider to know which caregivers are available when to support patients, and that’s even more critical in a pandemic,” said Linda Watts, joint clinical systems program manager, Imperial NHS Trust & Chelsea & Westminster NHS Foundation Trust, head of health records, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust. “The Xerox Team Availability App was deployed at lightning speed, and we got updates from staff on their availability in real-time. As a result, we could always make sure our patients were covered.”

The Xerox Team Availability App is a GDPR-compliant SaaS offering with a subscription-based model that allows customers to sign up for as long as required. It’s available now on the App Store and Google Play Store.

Bluebeam User Group Meetings Go Virtual

With COVID-19 halting in-person gatherings and events, Bluebeam’s passionate user community isn’t missing a beat—in fact, it’s taking BUG meetings to a new level entirely

In April, 48 members of the Kansas City Bluebeam User Group (BUG) attended its usual gathering. Chatter filled the room leading up to the meeting’s formal presentation, as members caught up with one another on matters both personal and professional.

Hoefer Wysocki’s Tina Haskins quieted the crowd as she began her presentation on sets, spaces and hyperlinks in Bluebeam Revu. As usual, members listened intently during the presentation, occasionally offering questions and comments.

At the end of the meeting, announcements were made and members quietly went on their way. They would likely see one another again at the next KCBUG meeting.

Except, this time, instead of embarking on an evening commute home after a long workday, these KCBUG members actually went back to work.

It was, after all, just past 1 p.m. local time. The members were already in their offices, which for the past month or so had also served as their homes. Many of them had a post-lunch round of homeschooling, pet and family care also on tap.

The BUG meeting was entirely virtual, during lunch, over video conferencing.

Virtual reality

Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, BUG meetings have gone virtual.

The KCBUG meeting came after other virtual meetings in New York City and Austin in March and April. Additional meetings in Denver, San Diego and Portland later in April followed. Many upcoming BUG meetings around the world will also be virtual.

Virtual BUG meetings are the “new normal”—at least until the virus wanes to the point where it’s safe again for in-person gatherings.

Although virtual BUGs may be far from ideal for those who appreciate live interaction and building in-person relationships, many of the virtual BUG meetings that have taken place so far have been equally—if not more—productive and engaging.

BUG participation has more than doubled in the most recent virtual meetings, according to the Bluebeam Communities team, which oversees BUGs globally. What’s more, requests to join the government BUG (GOVBUG), which has always been virtual, have spiked 25% in recent weeks. The UK’s recent LondonBUG meeting featured its biggest turnout ever.

“Bluebeam users are being forced to transition to working from home before they’re ready because of COVID-19, and they are looking for help and guidance from their peers,” said Bluebeam’s Sr. Community Development Manager Kellie Ward. “Users are in some ways feeling even more uninhibited to ask questions and share, because now their local and immediate resources are more limited.”

Embracing change

So far, BUG members are embracing the shift—though many are eager to return to in-person meetings.

“What I was surprised by with the virtual meeting was how the conversation happened just like an in-person BUG,” wrote Jason Hascall, chief engineer – federal services at construction firm Black & Veatch, in an email after the meeting. “KC for one has NEVER had a problem with questions, comments, suggestions, etc. A 15-minute presentation can turn into a lively discussion that easily fills the hour. In Tina [Haskin]’s example, the presentation was heartier than 15 minutes, but we had no shortage of discussion or questions. I was really happy to see/hear that.”

While Haskins prefers in-person BUG meetings, she said she enjoyed presenting and connecting with the group virtually. The virtual events have even allowed her to drop in on other BUG meetings in other cities she normally wouldn’t be able to attend.

“I have watched other BUG groups online and learned even more about how others use the program,” she said, referring to Revu.

Collaboration required

Like many industries, construction has become heavily reliant on digital collaboration. Teams of architects, engineers and administrators are constantly communicating with workers on jobsites as complex projects take shape.

But as the COVID-19 outbreak hit, many construction workers have noticed an even bigger push for collaboration, according to a recent report in Construction Dive. Competing general contractors are sharing more information with one another, particularly about strategies to improve worker safety during the pandemic, the report said.

This need to promote construction industry collaboration is largely what led Bluebeam’s BUG Champ leaders, with support from Bluebeam’s Communities team, to respond to the pandemic by shifting the meetings to virtual environments. “The transition to virtual BUG initially came out of a continued desire to share knowledge in an alternate setting from the typical physical meeting because of COVID,” Ward said, reflecting on the sentiment she received from talking to BUG Champ leaders during the transition.

By March 18, as states began issuing stay-at-home orders and companies started instructing their employees to work from home, Bluebeam’s BUG Champ leaders started working up alternate plans to ensure the BUG calendar could continue. They communicated with members about the plan to transition to virtual meetings, and within a few weeks the first batch of meetings were ready to go.

“These professionals need answers and solutions to questions that they’re used to receiving from colleagues in an office environment,” said Bluebeam Sr. Community Engagement Specialist Angela Aff. “Participating in BUGs are a great way for them to still get those answers.”

Better together

Perhaps the most memorable—and meaningful—moment thus far to come out of the virtual BUG meetings came from the group in New York City.

With the city’s status as the United States’ epicenter of the pandemic, the New York City BUG group was looking for something to lift its spirits when it met virtually in March.

The group found such uplift over a game of “Bluebeam Trivia.” As the game went along, the chat room suddenly burst with instances of digital laughter and enthusiasm—emotions not uncommon among this BUG community during in-person meetings.

Still, the moment seemed to serve as a much-needed reprieve from the city’s ongoing hardship.

“We needed this!” wrote David Eppinger of Meadows Office Interiors.

“You guys, this is the best day of my life!” added Lisa Neal of Skanska.

Bluebeam Virtual Success Interviews


Bluebeam is proving itself as a secure and flexible virtual collaboration for AEC decision-makers during the pandemic

Even before Covid-19, the lockdowns, and virtual work trends, Bluebeam took virtual collaboration seriously. For that, Bluebeam is enjoying a fresh moment in the AEC spotlight. Listen to some industry voices below.

Working Remote with Bluebeam, Spotlighting Erin Khan

Erin Khan’s experience adjusting to remote work life in light of COVID-19 has probably been a bit different than yours.

That’s because, when she’s able to work in Suffolk’s L.A. office, Khan oversees a technology stack comparable to the White House Situation Room.

As the company’s construction solutions director, Khan spends most of her in-office days operating and facilitating colleagues’ use of one of Suffolk’s state-of-the-art CoLabs. At the center of this 530-square-foot space is a nine-screen, touch-enabled Data Wall.

Going from this to a laptop on a kitchen table would be quite a change.

 

Coordinating Virtual Jobsite Work, Spotlighting Trevor Musia

In non-pandemic times, Trevor Musia’s alarm goes off at around 4 a.m.  

Within the hour, he’s out the door of his Temecula, California, area home and commuting roughly 60 miles south to San Diego, where his firm, Dynalectric, has its office.  

At 6:30 a.m., Musia is typically at his desk working, communicating with colleagues both in the office and out in the field as he contributes to a bevy of large-scale construction projects as a project engineer.  

By the middle of March, however, Musia’s wake-up call and commute got a little easier.  

Like many of the construction-industry professionals we’ve profiled these past two months, Musia has been a full-time remote worker during the COVID-19 pandemic’s peak.

Manage data better: the new features in Vault 2021

By: Dan Wiliams
Original article posted here.

There’s a time of year that CAD geeks (like me) look forward to with great excitement, but network and infrastructure administrators (also, like me) dread. It happens every spring when the good folks at Autodesk release the new versions of their software. My CAD geek’s excitement over new toys is usually tempered a little bit by trepidation over the trials associated with upgrades, migrations and update training. This year, however, Vault 2021 has my inner Administrator just as excited.

Obviously, Autodesk always prioritizes productivity enhancements and this year is no different. This new and enhanced functionality can best be summarized in three areas:

1) Productivity enhancements for CAD users.
2) Something they are calling Smart Duplicate Reduction, and.. Wait for it…
3) More and better tools for Administrators

Enhancements for CAD Users
Now, for all of you Inventor users, Vault 2021 supports the new interoperability between Inventor and Revit. Beginning in Inventor 2021, AnyCAD allows Inventor users to reference their Revit models into Inventor assemblies. As a result, Inventor users can design and arrange parts and assemblies in the context of an architectural model.

That architectural model reference updates in the assembly to reflect ongoing changes to the Revit model. That’s big, not only for the obvious modeling advantages, but because most Inventor users don’t have access to Revit.

Most users access Inventor via the Product Design & Manufacturing Collection. Unfortunately, the PD&M Collection does not include Revit, severely limiting what its subscribers can do with Revit files. I am very excited to further explore all the potential workflows enabled by this interoperability, especially with my Factory Design Utilities users.

Vault has long supported storing Revit data inside a vault. However, Revit users, even those with Vault access, are often prone to using one of Revit’s other collaboration options such as hosting those models on a network share or on BIM 360. Vault 2021 can manage those AnyCAD references even if the data resides outside a vault on a network share or BIM 360. In those scenarios, the Revit data is not duplicated in Vault. Vault simply manages the reference to the data in its original location. A user opening an Inventor assembly with an AnyCAD Revit reference will retrieve that data from its original source.

Vault 2021 has a new system property called “Has Parent Relationship”. This property will allow users to identify, filter by, or search for files that don’t have referencing files. This allows users to determine if, for example, a part during the ongoing process of design was replaced in – or abandoned by – an assembly. Now the user can potentially purge or avoid releasing parts not actually used in the final design.


I’m including these next feature enhancements with the ones that most benefit CAD users, but Administrators will appreciate them also.

In Vault 2021, Copy Design Rule Sets are now stored on the server instead of each user’s local workstation. That means that new rules and modifications to existing rules immediately become available to all of the users. No need to manually propagate them across all user’s workstations. I know a few Administrators who will want to upgrade based on that feature alone.

The Job Queue can now optionally show more than 1000 jobs, up to 100,000.

ECO email template customization is now far more capable as you can include new links to files and items.

You can include ECO properties in the subject as well as the body.

And, like the Copy Design Rule Sets, the template is stored on the server.

In previous versions of Vault, Navisworks files had to be viewed in the native application, requiring that Navisworks be installed – potentially consuming a license on workstations where it isn’t otherwise in use. Vault 2021 generates a visualization attachment for Navisworks files so they can be viewed in the preview window and can participate in Shared Views.



Smart Duplicate Reduction
At the core of this concept is a feature that was introduced in Vault 2020.2 called Duplicate Search which allows Vault to intelligently index the geometry of Inventor models. That index can be used in lots of interesting ways. Perhaps the most obvious is that it gives users the option of comparing their model to what is already in vault prior to checking it in.

The theory being, this should promote the re-use of existing models and reduce the time and costs associated with producing the same physical part over and over. Fewer redundant part numbers, less time re-creating drawings, fewer opportunities to introduce errors… the list of potential benefits goes on and on.

Further, this information is aggregated and exposed to Managers in the form of a Duplicates dashboard so they can better understand their environments.



Tools for Administrators
If you have made it this far, congratulations, data management can be a pretty dry and boring topic. Prepare yourselves, the remaining enhancements are geared directly at Vault 2021 Administrators and as such, may be of minimal interest to a typical user.

In previous versions of Vault, any user who had Read rights could also download a file. Once a “clever” user has a local copy of the file, they could potentially modify or distribute it. Vault 2021 splits the download permission out as its own separate right. Now those “clever” users can be grated Read permissions while denied Download rights.

This Download permission can be applied to roles, objects and lifecycle states.

In Vault 2021, the Audit Logs have been enhanced to provide more relevant information about specific user actions like Get, Open, Pack & Go, and more.

Now, instead of editing a configuration file, the logs can be enabled and configured using the UI.

Most Vault administrators have multiple roles within their respective organizations. As a result, it is common for them to have at least two sets of Vault credentials, one for administrative tasks, and another for their day job.

Switching between these roles often involves a lot of logging in and out over the course of a workday. Alternately, they can maintain multiple Vault application sessions open at once, each with a different set of credentials. Regardless of which method used, it is very easy to “forget who you are” and attempt a task with the wrong credentials.

Vault 2021 makes it easy to tell if you are logged in with administrative rights by altering the color of the status bar.

Since its inception, Vault has required a specific named MS SQL Server instance. It always had to be called AutodeskVault. This was problematic for a number of reasons. Many larger organizations have rules and regulations concerning SQL instance names and prefer that those names not be predictable for security reasons. It also caused issues if you wanted the same SQL server to host instances for two or more Vault servers. The list goes on…

Now, in Vault 2021, an instance name other than AutodeskVault can be specified.

Administrators of very large vaults will appreciate a new change to the way purge works. Previously, If existing file versions were protected from purge by their lifecycle state, they will always be protected. Even if there are changes to that lifecycle control such that the file versions would no longer be protected from purge. That change would only apply to new file versions added to the vault subsequent to that change in the lifecycle control. Now administrators can optionally purge legacy file versions after changes to the lifecycle control.

It somehow seems appropriate that I saved enhancements to Backup and Restore for last. Few would argue against making backups as often as possible. The period between backups represents potentially unrecoverable work should some outage occur requiring the server to be restored. However, for administrators of very large vaults, some balance must be struck between the need for fault tolerance and the edict of minimizing downtime for backup and restore operations.

For Vault 2021, the file store validation (one of the more time-consuming tasks associated with Backup and Restore operations) has been optimized for better performance. There has also been an option added to Restore operations for a “Quick” file store validation.

As you can see, there is a lot here for a typical user to like. And I think Administrators will like it, too!

Enabling a Functioning Home Office With DocuShare

When millions of workers started working from home recently, few knew what to expect and as a result many are struggling. We are all coming to terms with the normal challenges like managing schedules, balancing personal life over professional and that blurred line between work hours and home. Some challenges you can attack head-on with Xerox Multifunctional Printers, software portfolio and innovative apps. Yet when it comes to work (wherever that happens) work-at-home champions expect things to remain simple. You want to connect and interact with their business resources easily, minus any hassle or long conversations with the IT department.

In the graphic below, we have identified some challenges that the new home workers (perhaps you yourself) can find themselves having to deal with. Do any look familiar?

Docushare Home Work Graphic


Is There a Solution?

Yes. Xerox is leading the way in providing unique solutions to give huge productivity gains for the home worker and solving these pain points.

The First Step: Selecting the Ideal Multifunction Device as your Home Assistant

Homeworkers can be split into two broad categories: users with simple print-centric needs that create, share via email and print documents, and a second category of users that need to process documents as part of their job (like an insurance claim clerk, lawyers or real estate professionals). Workers who process documents for their job need to mimic the operations available at their office, follow company procedures, approve or review documents and pass them on to others. These workers need remote access from their device to their office systems. (For example, sign and approve an insurance claim and move that document to the finance department for payment to the client to complete their work). These complex tasks greatly benefit from the availability of apps that ConnectKey-enabled devices support in order to work as efficiently from home as from their office.

On the other hand, general workers who create documents (like finance and marketing) often share with others in the company. They need to be able to print, copy and scan their documents, and then email them to whoever needs them. These easier tasks do not need ConnectKey apps, but do need reliable devices that offer them the functionality they need. The WorkCentre 6515 color multifunction printer, WorkCentre 3345 mono multifunction printer and B215 multifunction printer offer small, easy to use devices capable of any task the average user needs to perform.

All ConnectKey enabled devices offer the same, personalized, simple-to-use front panel, and offer capabilities beyond print with connection to the app gallery. The Versalink C405 color multifunctional printer and Versalink B405 multifunctional printer are small enough to use within the home without losing any of the advanced functionality and security attributes that offices require.

With access to the app gallery, Xerox offers a multitude of workflow scanning solutions and productivity apps at the device’s front panel. Scan into cloud repositories, scan into text searchable formats, even translate documents all at the device.

All Xerox devices are simple-to-install on networks with Install Wizards to configure wi-fi, email server settings etc, and simple-to-install drivers. The Smart Start installer for printing and scanning helps customers through the installation process removing the need for any IT support staff, getting the homeworker quickly up and running.

As we all come to terms with recent events, many of us have already started to adapt and rebuild within these challenging and changing work practices.

The Next Step: Tying it all Together with DocuShare

So how can businesses benefit from DocuShare, especially in these challenging times?

DocuShare Flex is a cloud-based SaaS content management solution offering 24/7 secure access to the documents and information you need from any location. It can be custom-configured to meet almost any business need, and Flex helps accelerate your digital transformation efforts by providing pre-configured solutions for common business problems in the cloud.

Collaborating and sharing information stays within secure channels instead of sending documents over email (often unencrypted) or 3rd party transfer methods (which may store your information for an indefinite period). Direct links to key documents or collections, with appropriate access rights, can be sent to individuals who can access via encrypted channels using their PC browser or DocuShare App for mobile devices.

DocuShare Flex’s real strength versus its main competitors comes from its ability to automate key processes, real-time document collaboration while also helping to remove paper from the outset to support business digital transformation initiatives. Information can be captured from multiple sources including hardcopy scans and electronic web forms then moved into automated workflows or made available to share or collaborate with others. Document lifecycle policies can also be managed to help businesses stay compliant to government legislation requirements such as automatic document expiry/deletion.

To aid with capturing and digitizing hardcopy documents along with transferring files between different systems, DocuShare can fully integrate with your ConnectKey MFP and other key business tools such as Cloud Storage, ERP and CRM platforms through available apps and connectors. Wouldn’t it be nice to scan directly to Microsoft 365, OneDrive, or even Evernote right from the C405 panel to save time? While you’re there, just browse your folders and print a document from your boss that you need to review. Our range of connectors to popular cloud-hosted solutions completely avoid the need for those middle steps, helping to streamline your document storage process and get you better connected.

Xerox also sports many apps that connect to those popular CRM or ERP systems that the company has standardized on. Some cases customers might have had these apps in their business on departmental MFP like an AltaLink. The beauty of this is that they can have the same functionality on their VersaLink at the home office. With apps like Salesforce or Oracle NetSuite, users can connect directly to their business-critical software, upload their customer contracts, accounts payable paperwork, or keep up-to-date on important business paperwork. Keeping the business process flowing like they were in their traditional office is key to staying successful.

Working from home may be the new “normal,” after all is said and done. With that, the support structure is also changing for the millions that have moved to their “home office,” which is adding the pain of setting up your hardware, or just getting support that you would get in the traditional office.

Xerox has the tools you need to work from home effectively, securely, and efficiently, bringing to bear all the conveniences of a modern office and placing them right at your fingertips without skipping a beat. Pandemic or not, times are changing for the telecommuter and Xerox is leading the way.

PaperCut Software Wins BLI Award

Repro Products is thrilled to announce that PaperCut v19 was named the Keypoint Intelligence Buyer’s Lab (BLI) 2020 Pick Award winner in the Outstanding Cost Accounting & Cost Control Solution category!

BLI is the world’s leading independent evaluator of document imaging software and we’re impressed that they have acknowledged the tremendous work that has been poured into v19.

“The PaperCut family of print management solutions continues to grow more impressive with each iteration” said BLI, awarding us for the fifth time in the Outstanding Cost Accounting & Cost Control Solution category.

PaperCut appreciates the rigorous testing and feedback that the testers at Buyers Lab provide as they review PaperCut software. It’s invaluable industry input needed to develop the PaperCut solution into the simplest, most valuable product of its kind.

It was highlighted that v19 had a “strong base” with OCR being one of the standout features in their eyes.

“PaperCut v19 wouldn’t have been possible without the inputs from the PaperCut family around the world!” PaperCutter Chris Goult from the PaperCut Go to Market Team said.

Printing is crucial, but it doesn’t have to be as costly. Printing is complex, but it can also be transparent. Printing can bottleneck a project, but you can proceed with confidence. So if you are ready to take the next step in eliminating printing waste, boosting efficiency, and gaining a clear picture of where your imaging outlays are being spent, contact us today at 770-434-3050, or by requesting a quote with the form available on this page.

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® 2019 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 reputation as a place where seeing becomes believing. Here, our pleasantly surprised visitors learn that we offer Bluebeam, witnessing demos of how Revu performs in tandem with their hardware investments. This is why 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. 

So perhaps you’re in the market for wide format hardware and you want to test the waters with Bluebeam. Great! Ask us for a demo. Or better yet: get a FREE license of Revu Extreme for every wide format order placed before the end of 2019. Invest with confidence.
