As a TPM Bluebeam Technical Solutions Consultant, our customers often ask about the benefits of adding maintenance to their Bluebeam Revu License. Ordinarily, we receive inquiries about the value of maintenance from Perpetual License holders of Bluebeam Revu. Maintenance also applies to individuals with an Open License, as it is required with an Open License. Bluebeam's Perpetual License model works a little differently than the Open License. Bluebeam's Perpetual License provides you with access to Revu with maintenance as an optional addon. Yet, there is a value in opting for having maintenance included with a Perpetual License, and here's why:
At TPM, we're big fans of Bluebeam Revu and how it helps keep our client's architecture, engineering and construction teams on the same page through the design process. Revu allows AEC teams to move projects forward during construction and preserve critical project data through completion and beyond. For architects, engineers, and contractors, the mark-up and collaboration tools in Bluebeam Revu allow for faster, more accurate, and more thorough quality reviews.
Project handover to some in the construction industry means delivering “tons” of drawings, and other documentation to the project owner upon completion. Bluebeam can reduce the massive amount of paper with the digitization of the O&M manuals. The other benefit to digitizing documentation is the fact that it will make for simpler access for the parties who may need it in the future.

Are you spending a lot of money on Adobe products to create, edit, and mark up architectural and engineering documents?
You don’t have to. BlueBeam offers a more efficient system at an even more affordable price.
With BlueBeam, you can create a paperless workflow that tests the limits of project communication. BlueBeam Revu offers three editions–Standard, CAD, and eXtreme–each designed with powerful user benefits.
Do you and your colleagues pass so many project revisions back and forth that you're starting to lose track of all of your notes? Shouldn't there be a revision feature that's built in to your document creation software so your notes can stay with the project rather than end up as clutter on your desk?
Even the most “user-friendly” PDF software often includes oversights or features that actually reduce efficiency rather than add to it. In an office dedicated to paperless workflows, that can bring progress to a halt while employees are forced to print out physical paper copies, mark them up, add those edits into a separate document, scan them into the system, and then send them on to the rest of the team for review.
Don’t fall into the inefficiency trap. There are programs out there designed explicitly to make your paperless workflows run smoothly and provide every single tool your team requires when it comes to document management.
Our top pick is Bluebeam Revu. Here’s why:
