Bergen, Norway (Oct 8, 2014)

Bluebeam® Software, leading developer of PDF annotation and project collaboration technologies for Oil & Gas professionals, will be demonstrating how line walks, leak tests, turnarounds and other operations can be done faster and more accurately with a digital workflow and real-time collaboration.

Attendees will see how Bluebeam’s PDF-based flagship solution, Revu®, simplifies processes, maintains a digital paper trail, and improves project communication in Hall C, stand #4102 on Wednesday, 15 October from 09:00 to 17:00 and Thursday, 16 October from 09:00 to 16:00.

Omar Sheikh, Bluebeam’s Senior Application Engineer, recently spoke with Oilfield Technology magazine to discuss digitising processes for organised project management and rapid collaboration.

“We know that professionals in the Oil & Gas industry have highly unique needs and workflows, and we are excited to show OTD attendees how they can increase productivity by 65% and cut paper usage up to 85% with simple enhancements to those existing processes,” explains Sheikh. Sheikh will be on hand demonstrating how Revu’s intuitive time-saving features specifically help the unique needs across disciplines in the Oil & Gas industry.

“Revu enables engineers and technical specialists to track projects 40% faster, compare drawing revisions in 35% less time, and accelerate drawing reviews by 30%. The way Revu mitigates costly human errors and rework is incalculable,” says Kristine Hopkins, VP of Account Services.

Revu’s integrated cloud-based collaboration solution, Bluebeam Studio™, allows for managing projects digitally and securely from start to finish from a desktop, tablet PC or iPad. Oil & Gas professionals can review and annotate the same drawing set with project partners around the world in real time, or on their own time, behind the security of their organisation's firewall using Studio Enterprise, the server-based version of Bluebeam Studio.

Bluebeam’s cutting-edge exhibit includes demonstrations of Revu on a PC, Motion Tablet PCs, iPad and interactive SMARTBoards, showing the audience some of the ways Revu can digitise project workflows on the road, offshore and in the office.

Offshore Technology Days takes place from 14 to 16 October 2014 in Bergen, Norway and is expecting 25.000 guests to attend.
