Bluebeam® Software, leading developer of PDF-based collaboration solutions for technical professionals, is being recognized as one of the most rapidly-growing technology firms in the United States. Today Deloitte released the Technology Fast 500™, a list of the nation's 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies. Pasadena-based Bluebeam Software is ranked 255 on the list.
"Bluebeam Software develops innovative, document-centric collaboration solutions that push the limits of project communication," said Richard Lee, Bluebeam Software President and CEO. "Over the past five years alone, our unique approach to solving collaboration issues by combining collaborative conversations with the documents being reviewed has enabled us to grow at an incredible 320%."
The driving force behind Bluebeam's tremendous growth has been its flagship product Revu®, which is used by the world's top architecture, engineering, construction, and oil and gas firms to digitize project communication and collaboration. Revu enables users to electronically share project information and feedback by marking up PDFs with customizable, industry-standard annotations and tracking all activity through the integrated Markups list. PDFs can be reviewed offline or in the cloud using Revu's integrated collaboration solution, Bluebeam Studio™, from which users can store an unlimited number of PDFs and other files online for free and collaborate on PDFs with others in real time.
"We are proud to honor the 2012 Technology Fast 500™ companies, and commend them for their outstanding growth," said Eric Openshaw, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) leader. "These ground-breaking companies have outpaced their competition and are reinventing the way we do business today."
