I have not used the Studio version of the software or cloud hosting. I am interested in knowing if your software can be a proprietary used software for city, state, and county building permits in the future,

Pros

The software is relatively easy to use. It is has a fluid feel from one operating system to another.

Cons

Product training videos are nice to refer to. It would be good to see a quick use guide that overarches how to quickly get around in the software.

It would be great if they had a way to automatically create all the links on construction drawings

Pros

It has been designed for the construction industry
Easy markups, page linking
Able to use for punchlists
Toolbars and icons can be configured

Cons

Because toolbars and icons can be configured, training can be difficult unless you create a training profile.

The thing to watch out for is that the program you chose does everything you need it to do. I once had a PDF document program with no pan feature at all! And I didn't discover that until a few weeks after using it.

Pros

Easy to measure - lengths, area, radius, angles, etc.
Easy to markup and customize those markups - as well as other users markups.
Easy to track markups by the page.

Cons

So many things to learn and no time to sit down and play!
Can't find a way to total markups across pages.

I think that Bluebeam is the best PDF manager/user tool created since the original Adobe.

Pros

It is easy, powerful, and allows you to be the master of all documentation. PDF to word conversion, drawings tools, measurement tools, scaled take-offs, etc. etc. Very powerful.
The creation, modification, and use of the Stamps is another great tool for the contractor. We use Bluebeam to review, mark, and submit 100% of our shop drawings. We then have to digitally stamp each page and being able to change the date and comments in the stamp so quickly is awesome.
It integrates well with PROCORE which is an excellent Management Software.
The license is transferable between devices so that I can carry my SINGLE license from my work laptop to my home computer very easily by logging in on my license number.

Cons

Cost could be a factor...although I don't pay the bill at my company so I don't have the answer to the license requirements and costs.

The cost of Bluebeam Revu with its advance on-screen takeoff capabilities makes it really hard to purchase another program.

Pros

The on-screen takeoff is amazing. In a World of PDF plans, it only makes sense to have a PDF software that can handle advance quantity takeoffs and annotations. The utilization of this program has reduced my reliance on paper copies.

Cons

The program features are geared more towards vertical and site construction than heavy-civil, infrastructure and roadway.

If you can think it, you can do it with Bluebeam Software. I have definitely received ROI within the 1st month. This software has revolutionized how I do my job & how easily I can communicate with industry professionals in a more sophisticated manner. It has definitely elevated the appearance of my business.

Pros

Versatility to do just about anything with a PDF.
My uses are the ability to Create / Edit / Improve Construction Drawings, Submittals, Take-Offs, Design, Shop Drawings, RFI's, Bid Forms, signature pages & much more

Cons

Would like more CAD / Tekla like capabilities. Since I make shop drawings & design drawings when applicable, I spend too much making an accurate layout. I would like an ability to panelize an entire area with typical spacings between panels. Also, an ability to capture the sizes of pieces in area to appear onto a BOM

I've been using Bluebeam for several years and I can't recommend it enough.

Pros

It's markedly easy to use, can do most of everything CAD can, but with 1/3 of the frustration. It can be used to both review and modify PDF's and let you forget Adobe Illustrator. What a fantastic product

Cons

I don't care for the software license renewal vs outright purchase. The program still has a learning curve but its not that hard.

This software eases my PDF reading abilitys and provides me with a button or hotkey for any action needed. It can even strip data out of a PDF, with erase content. Or it could add it back in!

Pros

I like the functiality of this software, in how it can completely take apart a scale construction drawing with confidence. Scaling of drawings is not always the preferred method, but is useful and nessesary in demanding situations. It's nice to be confident in the conclusions being made.

Cons

I dislike how this software does not "play nice" with the network at my workplace. The software cannot open documents with file paths exceeding 256 characters, unlike adobe. The software is better in most cases, but annoying in the fact that all PDFs from deep folder paths, must be copied to desktop.

Every possible benefit, from personal communication to system wide corporate applications.

Pros

Absolutely intuitive program. You can get up and running with this with no training, assuming you have ever used any .pdf software prior. The menus are extremely rich, and generally intelligible to anyone who is computer "fluent" at the typical office "user" level. The depth of the menus is astounding, once you are past the basics, the abilities this program lets you access will change the way you do business. I like it because it makes someone without a CAD background (me) look like a professional, I was a huge Acrobat fan, the switch to BlueBeam was a corporate decision and I didn't think I'd ever get used to it. Took about two days, actually.

This software has many more options and editing skills than Adobe verison. You also have the capability to flatten your notes on the page or not.

Cons

Bluebeam is not capable to use with all other softwares, therefore I have to go back and forth between Adobe and Bluebeam.

Pros

Bluebeam Revu offers many options when viewing a PDF. Previously viewed documents are conveniently placed on the left-hand side for quick review.

Cons

Sometimes the number of options can be overwhelming. It takes some time to get to know the program and learn the location of main functions.
