What are the Different Types of Bluebeam Revu Licensing?

By John Bullick | Data Management, Subscription

Bluebeam offers three different types of licensing models for your Revu software – perpetual, open, and enterprise. Review below to learn which license type is best for your workflows.

Perpetual Licensing

This is an indefinite license which registers Revu on a per-workstation basis.

Open Licensing

Available for Revu eXtreme 2015.5 and above, Open Licensing allows companies to authorize multiple machines without purchasing a seat for each computer. When Revu is used, a license is checked out from a shared pool of seats, and checked back in when the application is closed. This allows customers to only pay for the number active users allowed at any given time.

Enterprise Licensing

This is a special license designed to manage your perpetual and/or open seats, as well as monitor computer turnover, by:

  1. Automatically releasing registered computers that have not communicated with our licensing server after 15 days.
  2. Providing a temporary 5% overage of the total number of allowed installations.
