Bluebeam® Software, leading developer of PDF-based collaboration solutions for design and construction professionals, is participating in the Mechanical Contractors Association (MCA) of Chicago Technology Day. During this one-day summit, attendees will have the opportunity to attend an educational session led by Bluebeam's Director of Strategic Alliances, Sasha Reed, and Sr. Account Specialist, Luke Prescott, to learn firsthand how Bluebeam's flagship product, Revu®, enables mechanical contractors to streamline project communication and take workflows digital.

"The world of specialty contractors is becoming more competitive every day, and a project's success can hinge on how effectively you communicate and how efficiently you coordinate," said Sasha Reed, Bluebeam Director of Strategic Alliances. "Bluebeam's educational session will focus on how mechanical contractors and other specialty contractors can use Revu to digitize communication for project tracking and creating RFI's, quality control, and estimation."

Bluebeam Revu is an award-winning solution that enables teams to digitize project communication from the plan room to the project field. With Revu, users can create 2D and 3D PDFs and redline them with industry-specific tools including text, highlights, shapes, clouds, CAD symbols, punchkey™ symbols and takeoffs. Custom markups can be stored in the exclusive Tool Chest™ for easy reuse, and every comment added to a PDF is tracked in the integrated Markups list. Advanced features include automatic drawing comparisons, hyperlink management and integration with SharePoint® and ProjectWise®. Revu's integrated cloud technology, Bluebeam Studio™, takes project communication a step further by allowing users to store an unlimited number of PDFs and other project files online, and collaborate on project documents in real time with anyone, anywhere.
