Plano, TX (PRWEB) May 27, 2015
BluVue, the leader in mobile construction plan and document synchronization, has announced the release of BluVue Plans 2.1, the cloud-based construction document management solution first developed in 2012. BluVue Plans allows project teams to have anytime, anywhere access to current construction plan documents on tablets, phones, and laptops, eliminating the risk of building off of outdated drawings. BluVue Plans helps construction teams collaborate efficiently on project drawings, giving them the power to view, markup and share plans within seconds.
BluVue’s latest release provides two key benefits to streamline project communications and help projects move toward completion faster. First, BluVue Plans subscribers may now add attachments to any annotation made on a plan sheet, providing the ability to record and add audio notes, take and attach pictures and video in the field, and attach popular document types like Excel and Word from any of a host of popular online cloud storage services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or Amazon Cloud. These multi-media files can be created and added whether online or offline, with immediate synchronization to team members occurring automatically in the background once Internet access is available.
Second, BluVue Plans subscribers can make text comments on sheets as projects are in process, complete with name and time stamps, to raise issues, seek clarifications, or direct team work efforts. These ad hoc discussions are visible among all project users in real-time.
“There’s no substitute for having a picture right there to tell the story sometimes–well most of the time,” said Phillippe Falkner, Operations Manager of Ed Bell Construction, Dallas, TX. “Using attachments in BluVue has multiplied the product’s impact, streamlining our construction project workflow. You forget just how much time you were wasting writing emails, listening and responding to voicemails, and holding meetings to communicate about various issues until you are able to be understood within a few taps and of course, a picture is worth a thousand words.”
Construction project managers understand the vital need for communication to keep a project on track; BluVue Plans provides all the tools to share relevant documents, notes, interactions and annotations, pictures and audio files, and even video clips, to ensure teams always have all the information they need to move a project forward. BluVue has been developed with direct input from construction professionals, with an emphasis on field usability and a quick learning curve to productivity.
“We understand construction challenges because we live and breathe it every day,” stated Jeff Musa, President of BluVue. “What drives the BluVue team is finding ways to make the work of construction pros easier, to get the project built faster, to discover how to squeeze out errors or miscommunication from their daily routine. Every time we do that successfully, we gain a loyal customer.”
About BluVue Plans
BluVue Plans mobile apps work on iPads, iPhones, Android phones and tablets, and their companion cloud-based web administration application works on laptop or desktop computers with any major browser. All changes, annotations or edits made to a sheet are automatically synchronized and updated when online connectivity is available. This allows BluVue to operate fully both offline and online, ensuring the most current plan sheets are always available to an entire project team, avoiding costly rework.
BluVue Plans provides a web-based project administration console for upload and management of construction plan PDF files, allowing front-end organization, including keyword tagging and automatic sheet naming, to facilitate speedy sheet access in the field. BluVue Plans automatically provides document version tracking and even adds an unmistakable pattern to out-of-date plans to prevent their use when an updated sheet exists. Job team members are able to annotate, mark up and review drawings as needed and immediately distribute updated plan sets to the rest of the project team.
BluVue Plans provides a free 30-day trial and low cost monthly plans based on users and sheet volume. To try BluVue Plans, visit http://www.bluvue.com.
