Bluebeam is a perfect complement to our existing suite of design and BIM solutions for the architecture, entertainment and landscape marketplace.

Nemetschek Vectorworks, Inc., a provider of intuitive, powerful and practical 2D/3D and Building Information Modeling (BIM) software solutions, announces that its parent company, Nemetschek AG, will acquire 100 percent of Bluebeam Software, Inc., headquartered in Pasadena, Calif., USA.

Bluebeam is a leading provider of PDF-based workflow solutions for digital processes and collaboration in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry with more than 650,000 users worldwide. Its customers include more than 74 percent of the top US companies in the construction industry, according to industry rankings by Engineering News-Record. According to the company's own calculations, the use of Bluebeam solutions increases productivity by 60 percent, reduces the costs of paper and distribution by up to 85 percent and leads to a reduction of schedules of 40 percent.

The desktop, server-based and mobile solutions address document-intensive industries and administrations for the digitalization of workflows. The PDF-based technology combines the process steps of create, comment, collaborate and organize in growing workflow automation. The intuitive and flexible solutions are used, for example, in all phases of the building process — from designing to bidding and the awarding of contracts all the way to the building stage and management. As a result of the provision of digital and paperless workflows, the platform technology called Bluebeam Revu considerably improves collaboration of all parties involved in the construction project.

"Bluebeam is a perfect complement to our existing suite of design and BIM solutions for the architecture, entertainment and landscape marketplace,” said Sean Flaherty, CEO of Nemetschek Vectorworks and member of the Executive Board of Nemetschek AG. “We’re committed to open standards, and the addition of a workflow solution using the PDF standard provides another way for our users to interoperate in today’s complex design environment.”
