Bluebeam Software’s digital document management solutions will be offered in Japan for the first time later this year. The 3D design and construction software will be be distributed to Japanese architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) customers through a partnership with Panasonic.
Bluebeam Revu is a software tool that offers teams from around the world the chance to work on one set of drawings or models through its Bluebeam Studio cloud-sharing platform. Revu allows architects, engineers and construction professionals to electronically create, markup and edit PDF-based project documents while Studio allows real-time collaboration, and building information model review tools.
Panasonic and Bluebeam have been collaborating together to develop field solutions for the AEC industries for several years. The two companies have been working together for research and development, product testing and promotion of Panasonic’s 4K tablet designed to enhance how AEC professionals interact with digital drawings.
“Bluebeam’s innovative solutions push the limits of project management and collaboration,” said Richard Lee, Bluebeam Software President and CEO, at the company’s annual conference last week. “As Bluebeam’s global footprint expands, partnering with the strength of Panasonic enables our Japanese design and construction colleagues to join digital workflow conversations and, ultimately, deliver better project results.”
For Panasonic, the partnership allows them to offer more digital document solutions to customers that are already using their Toughbook laptops and 4K tablets in the Japanese market.
“Panasonic is providing access to innovative Bluebeam technology that will help Japanese customers to efficiently increase productivity,” sad Masao Ito, an executive with Panasonic Corporation AVC Networks.
The two said that Bluebeam’s software will be available throughout Japan later this year via Panasonic’s distribution and network channel.
