Bluebeam Revu for Takeoff and Estimating

August 21 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

So, you have Bluebeam Revu, and you’re ready to take it to the next level? Ready to move beyond basic markup and commenting, and into the world of detailed quantity takeoff? Bluebeam Revu has a powerful array of tools to help you do exactly that, as well as tools and functions you probably aren’t even aware of. Stop struggling to figure out Revu’s processes on your own, and stop losing both time and money in the process. This class will take you through Revu’s most powerful quantity takeoff features and show you exactly how to use them, and adapt their properties to your firm’s specific needs.

ZenTek Consultants, a certified Bluebeam Partner, will show your users the most effective means of using the software you already own, so you can get the ROI you were hoping for. This eight (8) hour program is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions, and address questions as the class progresses.

Note: This class is for Bluebeam Revu for PC, not the iPad. Instructor will be using Bluebeam Revu Complete 21. Looking for this class in Bluebeam Revu 2017, 2018, 2019, or 20? Contact us to make arrangements.
