What You Need to Know About Bluebeam’s New Subscription Plans
In mid-September 2022, Bluebeam announced a move to a cloud-centric business model and three new subscription offerings. You can find more information on the Bluebeam Software as a Service (SaaS) business model in the Applied Software, Graitec Group blog, “What You Need to Know About Bluebeam’s New SaaS Model.”
Subscription is a business model that allows users to access a product and/or service based on a recurring fee charged at regular intervals. As Bluebeam explains, the new model and subscription changes aim to give customers flexibility, control and increased opportunities for innovation. While the older model made it difficult for users to manage integrations, track usage, and maintain security, the new plans better serve customers’ evolving business needs.
The new Bluebeam subscription offerings provide users and their companies flexibility, peace of mind, and lower total cost of ownership. Collaborative options include “in the office” and “in the field” scenarios. Benefitting from the changes, architecture, engineering and construction companies can better build, manage, administer, and deliver projects on time with enhanced productivity and a single system of record.
