Bluebeam Software Brings Global Collaboration to Japanese Design and Construction Industry
PASADENA, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Software announces plans to bring Bluebeam's digital document
management and collaboration solutions to the Japanese architecture,
engineering and construction (AEC) industry. Panasonic (News - Alert) and Bluebeam are
collaborating to enable AEC professionals in Japan to digitally access,
manage and share project files globally.
Panasonic and Bluebeam have been collaborating together to develop
better solutions for the AEC industry 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. This next
step in the collaboration will enable Japanese firms to leverage
Bluebeam's flagship PDF-based solution, Revu®,
to electronically create, markup and edit project documents.
Integrated into Revu is the cloud-based collaboration solution, Bluebeam
Studio™, which allows project teams to securely store, share and
manage PDFs, and other file types, in real time or anytime with partners
around the world. Panasonic will host Bluebeam Studio servers to meet
local requirements and market expectations. Bluebeam Revu, with Bluebeam
Studio, will be available throughout Japan later this year via
Panasonic's distribution network and channel in the region.
"Bluebeam's innovative solutions push the limits of project management
and collaboration," says Richard Lee, Bluebeam Software President and
CEO. "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."
"Panasonic is providing access to innovative Bluebeam technology that
will help Japanese customers to efficiently increase productivity," says
Masao Ito, who is Panasonic Corporation AVC Networks Company Business
Development Center Marketing Office General Manager.
