BluVue, the leader in cloud-based mobile construction plan and document synchronization, today released an update to the firm’s BluVue Plans construction collaboration solution providing two key new features aimed at saving time for construction teams and allowing for easier communication and team collaboration.
The first of these new features provides for the attachment of individual files to the project by project editors and administrators. Using the BluVue Plans web console in any browser, users can now add lengthy specification documents, budget spreadsheet files, submittal packages, or nearly any other project-related file for direct and ready access in addition to their blueprints which are already named, linked, and optimized for field use. Project level file attachments are listed in a distinct Files area for each Project, providing immediate download for use in the appropriate native application, and extending the value of BluVue as the single source of truth not only for plans, but for all project related documents. Project-level files are stored securely on BluVue’s cloud application platform.
In seeking to expand both collaboration and aid in project workflows including as-built and archival, a new plans export function has been added. Any single sheet, combination of sheets, or even entire project, including field markups, can be exported in an Acrobat-compatible PDF file for viewing by any reader supporting the PDF specification. This Export feature greatly enhances collaboration with owners, subcontractors, and other stakeholders throughout the construction phase who are not using BluVue Plans, and aides the creation of as-built sets and plan set archival at project conclusion.
“BluVue has always emphasized features that accelerate and simplify the construction workflow,” said Jeff Musa, president of BluVue LP. “Customers have asked for us to add these features. Project level attachments and the new powerful PDF Export functionality provide our customers more ways to leverage the app they are already relying on. Users are excited that BluVue is now a project’s single source of truth, as the repository of all the project information a team needs to have, right at their fingertips.”
The features released in this update for the BluVue Plans web console will be added to the firm’s mobile apps in the near future.
