BluVue Updates Mobile Construction Document Collaboration Solution
Plano, Texas, Jan. 11, 2016—BluVue, a leader in cloud-based mobile construction plan and document synchronization, has announced the release of BluVue Plans 2.3. BluVue Plans allows project teams to have anytime, anywhere access to current construction plan documents on tablets, phones, and laptops, eliminating rework due to building off outdated drawings, and increasing project collaboration. BluVue Plans accelerates project completion, provides a single source of truth, and gives construction teams the power to share project information immediately from the field or office.
In addition to ongoing enhancements in performance and speed, today’s update from BluVue adds two key features that underscore the firm’s leadership in mobile construction plan software.
The first new capability is the expansion of the firm’s Quick Publish feature to the mobile application available for Apple iPhone and iPad users. By making a few simple selections on their mobile device, iOS BluVue Plans users can now create new projects and upload associated construction pdf plans anywhere, while out of the office and on the go. Sheets will be automatically named, filed into an appropriate folder, assigned version name or number, and appear within minutes ready for use on the mobile device. Team members will have immediate access to these plans for making notes, adding annotations, or other markups.
BluVue Plans 2.3 now also provides web and iPad or iPhone users with the ability to directly and quickly add media attachments like images, videos, or recorded audio notes to project sheets. BluVue Plans becomes the only digital plans solution to provide users with the choice of adding such attachments either as supplementary information to sheet annotations or markups as well as directly as an attachment to the sheet where the easy access icon can be located, repositioned, and even color coded to aid in facilitating project communications among team members and stakeholders.
Since research shows construction rework contributes up to 20% of project costs, the ability to easily make notations of issues and capture images or record field notes quickly is crucial, and BluVue Plans continues to focus development on leading the industry in ease of use and intuitive design.
“Our customers are demanding that the software they use drive real productivity gains,” stated Jeff Musa, President of BluVue. “Minutes are dollars in construction, and we continuously listen to our software users’ input. We’re always looking for ways to reduce their daily struggles and challenges. BluVue Plans is the most user-friendly digital plans solution for field team members, and we work hard to maintain that leadership.”
