Mobile Blueprints Advance Construction
Time is money in all industries. In construction, for example, this is experienced when a construction crew is waiting for updated plans or guidance due to changes. Today’s next-generation software provides time-saving and ease-of-use enhancements, including new plan navigation tools, favorites, history, and callout hyperlinks.
Case in point: BluVue, www.bluvue.com, Plano, Texas, recently released BluVue Plans 2.2, which allow project teams to have anytime, anywhere access to current construction plan documents on tablets, phones, and laptops, eliminating the risk of building off of outdated drawings and accelerating project completion. BluVue Plans mediate communication among project team members, and speeds collaboration based on up-to-date project drawings, giving work teams the power to view, markup, and share plans within seconds.
The update from BluVue also brings important features to make document page access faster and easier. These features include: the addition of user-selected favorites; easy-to-set sheet filters that effectively reduce the number of sheets on screen to those most relevant to the task underway; and a sheet view history as well as back/forward buttons, which together make working with blueprints in BluVue Plans as familiar to use and navigate as the Web.
And there’s this: BluVue Plans 2.2 now supports interactive jumps to callouts on their blueprints and quick snap back. The ability to drill into a detail section with a single tap brings Web browser-like navigation a whole new layer of ease to the field professional. Innovative image recognition is employed during project publishing to automatically create standard callout hyperlinks so that plans deployed with BluVue Plans are interactive and live, without the delays of painstaking creation by a plan administrator. And users have the exclusive ability to even create a jump out to an Internet URL, linking to an external Website or document.
Don’t forget about the exclusive attachment ‘zoom to’ feature, which offers users the ability to quickly locate the area of a plan related to the picture, audio note, or other attachment while reviewing each sheet.
BluVue Plans provides a complete solution in one package that includes realtime tools, such as best-in-breed speedy blueprint viewing and annotation markup for teams, and shared notes and snapshot-sharing for communications on construction projects to keep projects on track and moving forward.
