Bluebeam Boosts Company’s Efficiency by 60%

If you could replace your paper-based workflows with software technology that could give your company a 50% boost in efficiency in just 18 months, would you go for it? The Bluebeam customer story, “Data Proves That Cloud-Based Collaboration Brings Groundbreaking Results,” explains how the company Hilson Moran was able to utilize Bluebeam Revu and Studio Prime in order to drive not just 50% but a 60% increase in production efficiency.

The Hilson Moran website mentions that, with over 40 years of successful projects, the UK-based company has a long history of championing technology and continues to take initiatives to support growth. This includes improving the skills of the internal team through simple resource plans, regular reviews and training in new tools and software, developing and applying advanced technology solutions to projects, and enhancing service to ensure quality, data-rich solutions for clients.

The adoption of Revu in 2018 allowed Hilson Moran to grow from “10 licenses to an enterprise-wide set of 229 licenses within a calendar year,” and the firm’s usage of paper also declined. This saved money “in the form of lower printing and shipping costs for drawing approvals.” Because of Revu’s “sophisticated PDF markup technology, drawing review, batch overlay, and even custom tool sets,” the tasks of engineers at Hilson Moran also became much easier to achieve.

In addition, Hilson Moran began its foray into the measurement of digital success with Revu. In order to “get an idea of how important Revu and future products might be to the business,” the company conducted user surveys with questions including: Were they aware of certain functionalities? Are they using them? And how often are they using them? “That starts giving us a really good picture to see, from the beginning, how far we’re progressing with people,” said Hilson Moran Director Vince Ugarow. “From our point of view, in the 18 months we’ve been using Revu, it’s been a real success.”

With Studio and Studio Prime, Hilson Moran is able to “grant and restrict access, control protocols and safely guard project information contained in the collaborative Studio Sessions through [its] own IT team and level of discretion.” Due to the way “the whole IT industry is going to be working is moving towards the cloud,” Ugarow added that the company would much rather “look at ways to still be in a secure environment but actually use those new technologies.”

In comparison to the way Hilson Moran had been operating before the adoption of Revu, Ugarow explained that the changes coming with that adoption were “quite a positive surprise.” With the Studio features in Revu, Hilson Moran completed traditional methodology work in the collaborative environment. He added, “We actually found that if you look at just the production process, [using Studio] was almost 60% more efficient.” Since the company can now focus now on progress instead of process, it has a competitive advantage in the construction marketplace.
