Hilson Moran is continuing to invest in the latest digital solutions to encourage project collaboration and efficiency. Most recently, the team has implemented the latest Bluebeam Revu® software, which is proving invaluable in this current remote working environment.
Devised to keep teams aligned through the design process, the software helps projects transition into the construction phase, whilst preserving important project data through to completion. Revu speeds up design reviews by enabling project partners to annotate and collaborate on the same documents in real time, or any time.
Hilson Moran Director, Vince Ugarow, who has driven the implementation of this tool, said: “When we introduced Revu, we rapidly increased the licenses from 10 to 229 within a calendar year. Our engineers adapted to this sophisticated PDF mark-up technology very quickly. We saw significant benefits including a marked uplift in productivity, as well as environmental cost savings from the decreasing printing and shipping costs required prior to adopting this tool.”
The ‘Studio’ function of Revu allows for multiple users to work on the same drawing review sessions, offering simultaneous, real-time editing for users, regardless of location across the globe. Vince said, “This has been a significant step forward, aiding the process of design and collaborative working across our offices.”
Hilson Moran also added the cloud-based subscription for ‘Studio Prime’, which offers all the collaborative tools of ‘Studio’, but with added secure administrative controls and the ability to customise the product using an open API for cross-software collaboration.
