Deloitte Names Bluebeam to 2014 Technology Fast 500™ List for Third Consecutive Year

Bluebeam’s growth fueled by widespread adoption of its digital document management solutions by technical industries.


Pasadena, CA (November 13, 2014)

Bluebeam® Software, leading developer of PDF-based markup and collaboration solutions for technical industries, ranks 212 on Deloitte’s 2014 Technology Fast 500™ list. This is the third consecutive year Bluebeam joins the list of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America.

One notable catalyst for Bluebeam’s rapid growth has been the widespread adoption of its flagship digital markup and collaboration solution, Bluebeam Revu®, by the world’s top technical firms. Bluebeam’s efficiency-centric product development approach resonates with industries such as architecture, engineering and construction, oil and gas, and manufacturing, whose projects have been historically slowed by document handling and communication delays.

Revu combines electronic document markup and management capabilities with an integrated cloud-based collaboration solution, Bluebeam Studio™, to save users time and money by enabling faster paperless workflows.

“Our customers challenge us to develop intelligent digital collaboration solutions that simplify processes. Our 50% annual growth rate is built on the successes of the world’s top technical firms, who leverage our solutions to open doors to the largest buildings and complete the biggest infrastructure projects 60% faster,” said Lee.

Founded in 2002, Bluebeam was recently acquired by Nemetschek AG, parent company of Vectorworks and Graphisoft, for $100 million in a move expected to expand both companies’ global reach.

“For 20 years, the Deloitte Fast 500 rankings have honored the innovation that is part of these companies’ DNA,” added Jim Atwell, national managing partner of the emerging growth company practice, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “We’re glad to be serving these high-growth companies, and helping the technology sector recognize the great strides and transformation these companies are making in their respective areas.”

Bluebeam previously ranked 288 as a Technology Fast 500 award winner for 2013.
